New Mitsubishi Sit Down Reach Truck Range

MLA Holdings are pleased to announce a new Mitsubishi sit down reach truck range, setting new standards in performing to your warehouse needs.

RF-MIT Rear-R j

The RBF14-16-20CA series adds to an already extensive range of warehouse products from Mitsubishi. It comes in three models, each powered by a 48V traction battery. The 1.4, 1.6 and 2.0 ton models all use AC motor technology for greater power efficiency and lift heights of up to 10 metres.

Three important features that guarantee Mitsubishi’s promise of quality and reliability are those of an exceptional control system, smooth operation and of course, safety.

Control System
A more optimized operator experience is ensured by the SICOS-AC control system that integrates the hydraulics, travelling, and steering functions. Also integrated is a self-diagnostic function that constantly monitors for malfunctions. Any faults discovered are communicated via diagnostic codes making it easy to identify the problem and rectify.

AC motor technology delivers a smooth, powerful drive and low maintenance costs. A regeneration function charges power back to the battery through plugging, coasting and braking to ensure longer operating hours from one charge.

Integral side shift is a standard feature, while steer by wire 360 degrees steering means there is no need for switch back, ensuring effortless steering every time.

Not only is this new series very reliable, Mitsubishi has gone above and beyond to ensure absolute safety.

The Operation Interlock System deactivates travelling when the operator is not seated. Furthermore a Neutral Safety Feature prevents sudden movement should the accelerator or hydraulics be accidently activated, while a sensitive lift speed control automatically slows lifting and steering when truck is above a certain speed. Direction control, horn, and emergency stop button are located ergonomically on the arm rest console.

MLA can help your company gain a competitive advantage. The RBF14-16-20CA models are a brand new series of Mitsubishi reach trucks that are designed to cater for all your warehouse needs.

Reduce Workplace Injury

Tired of moving material around with a hand pallet jack? Tired of not being able to work effectively in confined spaces? Mitsubishi has the solution!


The PBP16-20N2 series has been specifically developed for outstanding performance in challenging environments and to offer a comprehensive solution to safe horizontal movement of pallets.

Mitsubishi has once again incorporated the key features of reliability and operator usability into these power pallet movers. The range consists of 1.6 and 2 tonne machines that will cater for all business needs.

They are perfect for fast paced work environments. Changes in technology are always gaining pace, and to stay ahead, Mitsubishi continuously improves the designs and specifications of its products. The PBP16-20N2 is no different, packed with a host of advanced features.

It really is in a class of its own. Its maximum lifting height of 135mm cannot be matched by any other machine in the market. This allows for easy handling on steep ramps and loading docks, even with damaged pallets.

The range delivers where it really matters, reliability, usability and safety. A sealed chassis offers protection against dirt, dust and other particles to reduce wear, while an oil-filled sealed transmission ensures reliable and quiet operation. The trucks also have a high-efficiency electronic system that features waterproof components for maximum reliability.

As is the case with all Mitsubishi forklift trucks the PBP16-20N2 are extremely easy to use. The waterproofed features allow for outdoor use in all weather conditions, while the lifting and lowering levers and linked castor wheels ensure easy operation and excellent stability.

The most important of all features is safety. Acceleration, speed and braking characteristics are fully programmable to suit each individual driver’s needs. When the handle is pulled down all the way, signalling that the operator has tripped over, the truck automatically stops. Furthermore, the emergency button stops the machine immediately if and when mishaps occur. For tight turning in confined spaces the truck has a handle-up operation feature making it ideal for use in containers and the back of trucks.

The Mitsubishi PBP16-20N2 Power pallet series are a compact and robust machine, ideal for use in confined situations and harsh environments. These versatile trucks make light work of transporting pallets and are easier and safer to use than manual pallet jacks.

Advantech, an international leader in IPC and eAutomation, is happy to announce the TREK-550 mobile data terminal. The Trek-550 has been a great success for Advantech winning a number awards over many years. In 2011, the TREK-550 received the Taiwan Excellence Award, a program setup in 1992 to encourage innovalue, a term which equates to high quality and high value-added features in innovative, leading-edge products. Prior to this, TREK-550 was a recipient of the Computex Taipei Best Choice Award which exemplifies Advantech’s leadership in manufacturing, innovation and excellence.


TREK-550 Connects Vehicle Applications and has a Rugged, Industrial Design

The TREK-550 Mobile Data Terminal is designed for in-Vehicle applications in bus, taxi, and trucking fleets. It is Intel® Atom™ processor-based, with an industrial-grade chassis which is built to survive harsh environments. It operates without hesitation in a wide range of temperatures (-30° C to 70° C) commonly found inside vehicle cabs subjected to varying weather elements. It has a full complement of I/O connectors allowing it to be interfaced to specialized vehicle systems.

Innovation Puts TREK-550 Ahead of the Competition

TREK-550 connects to J1939 standard interfaces providing instant diagnostic capability to all on-board vehicle devices. Geo-location applications, route planning and travel assistance are expertly managed with TREK-550’s assisted GPS (AGPS) and dead-reckoning systems. These features help vehicles stay the course in areas where line-of-sight satellite reception is blocked or impaired due to tunnels, terrain or signal bouncing, which saves drivers and fleet managers both time and money.

TREK-550: the Cornerstone for Intelligent Bus Standards

Recently, the first ever intelligent bus industry standard was published for manufacturers, and TREK-550’s advanced functionality served as the model. The standard was penned by members of the Taiwan Telematics Industry Alliance (TTIA), and sanctioned by the Taiwanese government in an attempt to form a standard for intelligent bus transportation systems in the Greater China market. The standard improves safety, adds scheduling and fare efficiencies for bus passengers, and provides onboard infotainment and information services. The Taiwan government Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) has formulated its vision for the future of intelligent bus transport, and Advantech in collaboration with other industry players has reached a consensus, in part by studying the capabilities of TREK-550’s advanced in-vehicle operations.

What is Voice?
Voice technology reads easy-to-follow instructions to pickers over a headset as they pick items. Instead of stopping to read bin locations and products from a paper pickslip, the system speaks the next bin location to the picker. Voice challenges your pickers to prove they are picking the correct product by reading the last three numbers from the barcode on the item. It is only when the correct item is found that the system tells the picker how many are required.
Voice allows your pickers to have both hands free because there is no clipboard or scanner to carry. Pickers are able to carry cartons with two hands and can record pick quantities by speaking the number of cartons picked as they carry the items to the pallet.
