Kalmar Automated Forklift

Kalmar "kio" is a future vision on how automation is going to play a role in the material handling market. After an intensive research phase about the current applications of cargo and material handling machines, a focus on forklifts for sawmils has been set. The concept is focusing on reducing weight of forklifts, automation and on a new brand identity for kalmar.

germany & poland

To get a better understanding of our projects context, we were invited by Kalmar to explore different applications of their products.

The trip started in Swinoujscie, Poland, where we got introduced to their production facility. Several ports in Hamburg have been visited. Users were interviewed and findings extracted. The trip was concluded with a visit to a sawmill in vännes, sweden.
