Yale Materials Handling receives 2016 Good Design Award
Yale Materials Handling Corp., Greenville, N.C., has received a 2016 Good Design Award for the MPB045VG walkie pallet truck with lithium-ion battery.
According to the company, the walkie pallet truck offers the first commercially available Underwriters Laboratories (UL)-recognized lithium-ion battery pack in the forklift industry. The walkie was selected based on its extended run times, fast charging capabilities, maneuverability, and environmental friendliness.
The battery can be charged repeatedly to 100 percent capacity without an equalization charge, allowing for opportunity charging without any negative memory effects.
The Good Design Awards are presented by the Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design, the European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies to designers and manufacturers who have successfully undertaken the design challenge to produce the best and most outstanding design products.
