A NEW version of the X-Way Mover that is used to move unit load devices (ULDs) around air freight facilities has been unveiled by Hubtex in partnership with Dimos.
The new product range includes the X-Way Mover 140 and the smaller X-Way Mover 70.
The X-Way Mover 140 has a maximum load capacity of 14,000 kilogrammes and is specially designed to handle 20-foot ULD containers. The vehicle is 7,625 milimetres in length, 4,760 mm in width and 3,282 mm in height with a platform width of 2,500 mm, and can be used both indoors and outdoors. The transfer height of the platform can be adjusted to between 200 mm and 7,200 mm by means of a new mast system.
As for the smaller X-Way Mover 70, it has a maximum load capacity of 6,800 kilogrammes and has been specifically designed to handle 10-foot ULDs, reported Air Cargo News.
The companies claim the X-Way Mover speeds up the handling of ULDs because the transport vehicle single-handedly takes on the tasks of the truck dock, transfer vehicle, elevating transfer vehicle, pallet mover and dolly dock.
'This combined approach results in less downtime or no downtime at all during transport,' they said. 'The X-Way Mover pushes back the system boundaries and is capable of tackling the entire ULD handling process from landside to airside.'
