Order picker forklift
Platinum OP Series order picker
Platinum OP Series order picker models feature Ergolift, a design feature that reduces operator stress and increases overall productivity. The Ergolift design incorporates a secondary mast on the fork carriage that allows the operator to raise and lower the pallet to comfortable heights while stacking and retrieving. Ergolift reduces the need for operators to stress their backs with constant bending because pallets are always at the correct height. The Platinum OP models also provide efficient performance with dual control pods that allow simultaneous drive and lift/lower functions. The series includes two models with the choice of nine mast heights and capacities up to 2,200 pounds.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
