Forklift Model And Configuration

- Dec 27, 2017 -

Models and configurations:


The selection of models and configurations generally starts from the following aspects:


Job function

The basic operation functions of forklift are divided into horizontal handling, stacking/unloading, loading/unloading, picking. According to the job function that the enterprise needs to achieve, can be determined from the model described above. In addition, special operation function will affect the specific configuration of forklift truck, such as paper roll, iron water, etc., which needs forklift truck to complete special functions.


Job requirements

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.


The working environment

If an enterprise needs to move goods or warehouse environment to the environment such as noise or exhaust emissions, it should be considered in selecting the model and configuration. If it is in a cold storage or in an environment with explosion-proof requirements, the forklift should also be refrigerated or explosion-proof. Carefully examine the location of the forklift operation and visualize possible problems. For example, whether the door height will affect the forklift when entering the warehouse; The elevator height and the impact of loading on the forklift when entering and leaving the elevator; In the upstairs operation, whether the floor load meets the corresponding requirements, etc.


In the selection and determination of the configuration, it is necessary to describe the working conditions and field survey to the forklift supplier to ensure that the forklift truck is fully in line with the enterprise's needs. Even with the analysis of the above steps, several models can still meet the above requirements. Here are a few things to note:


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.


2.If the forklift is working in the warehouse, different models need different channel widths and different improvement capacities, resulting in changes in the layout of the warehouse, such as changes in the storage of goods.


3.The change of the model and its quantity will have an impact on the management of the fleet.


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. But the former can't be improved in the cab, so the operating view is poor and the work efficiency is low. Because the latter can fully cover the former functions and perform better, the latter has more than four to five times more market sales in Europe and more than six times 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 the market volume is very small, its after-sales service engineer quantity, engineer experience, spare parts storage and water equal service ability will be relatively weak.
