Forklift Models And Configurations

Elephant Group | Updated: Jul 15, 2018

Folding function

The basic operation functions of forklift include horizontal handling, stacking/picking, loading/unloading, and picking. According to the operation function that the enterprise wants to achieve, it can be preliminarily determined from the car model introduced above. In addition, special operation functions will affect the specific configuration of forklift, such as carrying paper rolls and iron water, etc., which requires the forklift to install special tools to complete special functions.

Folding operation requirement

A forklift requirements including the pallet or the specifications, hoisting height, homework channel width, gradability and other general requirements, at the same time also need to consider the efficiency (different models of its efficiency), work habits, such as used to ride or drive) requirements.

Folding environment

If the goods or warehouse environment that the enterprise needs to carry has environmental requirements for noise or exhaust emission, it should take some consideration in selecting the vehicle type and configuration. If it is in cold storage or in an environment with explosion protection requirements, the configuration of forklift should also be cold storage or explosion proof. Carefully examine where the forklift needs to go during operation and consider possible problems, for example, whether the height of the door will affect the forklift when entering or leaving the warehouse; Influence of elevator height and load on forklift when entering and leaving elevator; When working upstairs, whether the floor load meets the corresponding requirements, etc.

When selecting the model and determining the configuration, the working conditions should be described in detail to the forklift supplier and the field investigation should be carried out to ensure that the forklift selected meets the needs of the enterprise. Even after completing the above analysis, it is still possible that several models can meet the above requirements at the same time. At this time, the following aspects should be noted:

(1) different models, work efficiency is different, you need to have different Numbers, the number of forklift driver, will lead to a series of cost change, see the section of performance evaluation in this paper is discussed about the cost.

If the char kv is operating in the warehouse, different types of vehicles require different channel widths and different enhancement capabilities, which will lead to changes in the layout of the warehouse, such as changes in the storage capacity of goods.

The change in vehicle type and its quantity will have an impact on many aspects of fleet management.

(4) different segment of market's different, its after-sale protection ability is also different, such as: low driving three to stacking forklift and high driving to stacking forklift forklift series belong to the narrow channel, can be in a very narrow channel (1.5 ~ 2.0 m) to complete the piling and pickup. However, the former cab cannot be improved, so the operating vision is poor and the working efficiency is low. Since the latter can fully cover the functions of the former and have superior performance, the latter's sales volume in Europe is 4-5 times higher than that of the former, and more than 6 times higher in China. So most vendors are focusing on the development of high three to stacking forklift driving, and low driving three-way stacking forklift is used in small tonnage, hoisting height is low (typically within 6 meters) under the condition of. When market sales are low, the number of engineers, experience of engineers and equal service ability of spare parts storage water will be relatively weak.
