Why is it so important to have a test track for Reach Stackers?

The importance of having a test track for the Reach Stacker is undeniable. Not only does it serve as a quality assurance measure to ensure that the machine meets all safety and performance standards, but it also provides valuable information on how the product will perform in real-life conditions. By testing on a real track, UPLIFTING ensures that its machines are designed and manufactured correctly before they go to market and/or to their final destination.

A well-designed test track should mimic typical Reach Stacker working environments so that any potential problems can be identified during testing and not after production has been completed or customers have already purchased them. This includes factors such as terrain type, obstacles such as potholes, terminals with different floors, unevenness, turning angles, etc., which must be taken into account when designing the appropriate test track for these vehicles.

In addition, testing on real tracks instead of virtual simulations helps engineers better identify problems, as they can observe how each component behaves, both individually and collectively, under the load of various use cases in their intended environment.

In conclusion, an effective test course is essential to ensure that our Reach Stackers are designed and manufactured correctly before they are marketed or commissioned at customer sites around the world, which is a critical step in delivering safe products with optimal performance in multiple sectors such as logistics, marine and intermodal terminals, industrial and military.

Furthermore, having access to a safe area where our customers’ operators can practice operating our reach stackers in realistic conditions is essential for any company looking to maximise productivity while minimising the risk associated with improper operation by untrained personnel. Not only does it help protect against potential workplace accidents, but it also ensures that employees become familiar with their equipment so that they can work more quickly once in the production areas. It allows us to offer our customers that their staff are properly trained to work safely and more efficiently overall.
