VERY NARROW AISLES WITH NO REQUIREMENTS ON FLOOR CONDITION
The direct alternative currently on the market to the HUBMASTER are conventional forklifts or stacker forklifts. These are widely-used industry standard devices that operate effectively in warehouse environments. However, they require aisle widths from 2.8 up to 4 meters.
The HUBMASTER system reduces the aisle widths down to 1.5 meters, providing a dramatic increase in storage capacity compared to a solution using conventional or stacker forklifts.

Maximize your storage capacity and ensure safe operation with no regard to floor condition with HUBMASTER.
Besides, conventional and stacker forklifts pose a strong compromise towards safety. They represent one of the highest risk factors in the workplace, many times because they operate in congested or narrow environments with poor visibility and at speed. These devices lack in active safety measures for injury or damage to property prevention, and therefore safety relies on a skilled operator, which is the reason for these devices to be prone to collision and overturning accidents.
The HUBMASTER ensures a safe operation and damage reduction to goods and equipment as it is a suspended system where tilting or overturning is impeded. The HUBMASTER also integrates zoning sensors and automatic speed control to prevent collisions due to wrong manoeuvres. Additionally, an electrical emergency stop device allows the operator to instantaneously stop any movement.
Apart from that, one could also consider VNA trucks as being another possible alternative to HUBMASTER. However, while offering aisle widths up to 1.5m, these handling systems require onerous floor regularity, which considerably raises installation and maintenance costs, as floor treatments and ongoing monitoring are required.
The HUBMASTER has no special requirements on floor condition,
as it is supported by the racking systems.
