Some MIAG Forklift Truck Tech Manuals PDF are above the page.
For most material handling equipment manufacturers, specialty forklifts are a complement to their core product range.
An exception to this rule is MIAG Fahrzeugbau Gmbh (Germany).
For 70 years, its main specialization has been explosion-proof loading equipment.
The history of MIAG began in 1846, when Luther Wolfenbuttel founded the flour milling machine company.
In 1922, the company opened a department for the production of electric machines, and already in 1927, MIAG produced the first electric forklift of its own design.
In fact, it was an electric cart with a forklift and a counterweight.
In 1936, the development of explosion-proof equipment began, and two years later the first explosion-proof electric tractor was built.
Ten years later, in 1955, the operation of the first explosion-proof electric forklift LM 1 EEX began, and in 1962, the first diesel explosion-proof forklift LM 20 DX.
Both machines were designed to operate in zone 1 (possible explosive concentration of impurities during normal operation).
In 1983, the industrial forklift department of Buhler-MIAG GmbH left this group of companies and became an independent company of MIAG Fahrzeugbau GmbH.
The company is currently located in Braunschweig (Lower Saxony) on an area of 20,000 m2.
The production is certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2000 (management system certification).
Today, the MIAG production program primarily includes industrial loading and warehouse equipment for working in explosive environments, so in addition to the usual counterbalanced forklift trucks, reach trucks, stackers and accompanied electric pallet trucks, there are quite specific samples in the model range.
MIAG machines correspond to analogues of the world's leading manufacturers, but at the same time they are also able to operate reliably and safely in the most explosive conditions.
MIAG products are well known in the world.
In addition to Germany, loaders of this brand operate in Austria, Great Britain, Sweden, Italy, Denmark, Finland, France, Norway, Switzerland, China, South Korea, etc. - in total in 36 countries of the world.
