Compared to our competitor's systems, the ACR System delivers significantly more uptime, lower maintenance costs and helps you move more product faster. The ACR System is much more energy efficient which causes batteries to be changed less frequently. Plus, with fewer moving parts, less maintenance is required for the ACR System, which increases lift truck uptime and lowers operating costs.
An actual customer success story: A "big box" retailer's new distribution center began using Raymond trucks equipped with the ACR System. They quickly found that the higher acceleration rates of Raymond trucks allowed them to move 12% more pallets per hour. Plus, with the improved energy efficiency associated with the ACR System, they also anticipate getting 20% more lifts per battery charge, using fewer amps per cycle.
With Raymond's ACR System, you'll realize significant savings on batteries, chargers and downtime. Our AC motors are designed to deliver more runtime per battery charge. In most applications, Raymond trucks equipped with the ACR System enjoy a full shift out of a single battery charge.
Raymond trucks with the ACR System maintain a high level of performance throughout the battery cycle. This extends the truck's peak performance longer into the shift and lets operators move more pallets per battery charge, shift after shift.
Raymond trucks, featuring our ACR System, provide lower maintenance and parts costs, as well as fewer and less frequent maintenance needs.
With trucks featuring ACR System trucks, painstaking steps have been taken in engineering to ensure that maintenance is simpler. ACR System-powered trucks are shown to need less maintenance.
Our AC motors have no brushes, spring sets or commutators - all parts that require regular maintenance and periodic replacement. Motor brushes must be changed regularly. An unwanted byproduct of motor brushes is loose carbon dust that needs frequent cleaning to prevent dust buildup in the motor compartment, which can lead to major problems. Replacing or adjusting a commutator on a competitor's motor is a labor-intensive process that requires disassembling the entire motor. That's a lot of money and downtime lost. With the ACR System, these maintenance issues are eliminated.
The ACR System helps operators get to and from storage locations faster by providing quicker acceleration, smoother direction changes and better load handling.
Our trucks accelerate faster, so your operators get up to top speed faster. ACR System - equipped trucks respond to your operator's control inputs for acceleration, stops and direction changes. The truck's intuitive response also enhances the operator's control of the load, making pallet positioning more precise, which is crucial when handling loads at higher elevations.
With improved acceleration and control, operators of AC lift trucks will shave seconds off each cycle. Considering the enormous number of cycles that are completed by each operator, each day, each year, that adds up to a lot of additional productivity.
