Crown TSP 1000/1500 Series Turret Truck with Gena® Operating System reinforces safety and performance

Crown Equipment Corporation has announced the availability of the new generation Crown TSP 1000/1500 Series very narrow-aisle turret truck. The lift truck features the Gena® operating system, which reinforces operator safety and enhances lift truck performance. It also simplifies truck-to-operator communication and provides real-time actionable data.

The intuitive and innovative Gena operating system delivers a customizable, interactive experience to enhance supply chain performance. The transformational lift truck operating system provides users with real-time, actionable data, including safety reminders, illustrations, and customizable widgets that display key operating metrics like battery state of charge, hour meter, and height indicator.

The TSP Series turret trucks deliver exceptional travel, lift, and lower speeds, all supported by the heavy-duty Crown MonoLift® mast, which delivers greater stability up to 675 inches. The mast allows operators to lift more weight to greater heights. The new turret truck also has the added ability to blend main mast hydraulic and auxiliary mast hydraulic functions, allowing operators to raise/lower the main platform and the auxiliary forks simultaneously to boost efficiency and enhance productivity.

“At Crown, we understand that to achieve the desired business objectives, our customers need their systems, processes, and equipment to work together. That’s why we take a consultative approach and build each turret truck to fit the unique specifications and requirements of their applications and operational needs,” said Chris Grote, senior product manager of Crown Equipment. “We have developed technology-based tools to help us explore very narrow aisle configurations and benefits that will increase returns. For instance, our exclusive, very narrow aisle TSP SureSpec software gives you a fast, accurate way to spec turret trucks for our customers that help optimize their warehouse space.”

Crown TSP 1000 1500 Series imageTo ensure the turret truck fits the application and meets operational goals, Crown consultants focus on three main factors as they relate to each customer:

1.     The facility includes understanding aisle strategy, rack and ceiling heights, and floor surface specifications. It also includes specific performance needs for challenging environments like cold storage.

2.     Load handling includes the size, weight, shape, and consistency of the pallet loads, along with racking configurations.

3.     Performance potential involves using simulation software to define possible scenarios and analyze their costs and benefits to help ensure desired results are achieved.

TSP Series turret trucks can be equipped with operator-assist technology options that enable more efficient operation and enhance operator confidence and performance. For example, the Auto Positioning System blends travel and lift functions to allow the turret truck to take the most effective route to a designated rack location, increasing productivity by up to 25%. Auto Fence slows or stops travel and can limit lift height within the guided very narrow aisle based on the location of the turret truck.

The Crown TSP 1000/1500 Series turret truck includes Crown’s patented OnTrac® anti-slip traction control system, which reduces slippage or wheelspin whenever the lift truck accelerates, plugs, or brakes on wet or dusty floors. Customized energy solutions for the turret truck are available based on a range of V-Force® lead-acid or lithium-ion batteries and chargers to meet customer application and infrastructure requirements.
