What are forklift attachments?

Forklift attachments, also known as multiple devices, are the best tool for multi-purpose forklifts. It is required to easily replace a variety of work attachments on fork-based forklifts, so that the forklifts can adapt to a variety of working conditions.

Forklift attachments are widely used in papermaking, packaging, printing, petroleum, chemical industry, construction, smelting, electronics, beverages, hardware, automobile manufacturing, warehousing, tobacco and other industries. It is an efficient equipment for automatic loading and unloading, stacking and handling.

The role of forklift attachments

An important means to improve the working efficiency and safety performance of the forklift, and at the same time to greatly reduce its damage, is to equip the forklift with accessories.

1. High production efficiency and low operating cost
Mechanized handling takes less time than traditional manual handling, reduces labor expenditure and cost, and improves work efficiency. In the same handling cycle, the number of movements of the forklift is significantly reduced, the corresponding tires, transmission gears, and fuel consumption of the forklift are also reduced accordingly, and the operating cost is also reduced accordingly.

2. The operation is safe and reliable, reducing the accident rate
The attachments designed and produced by professional forklift attachment manufacturers for different industrial working conditions are all designed with safety devices, so that the clamped (or fork) goods are not easy to slip off under abnormal conditions, such as the pressure maintaining device ( When carrying the cargo, the oil pipe bursts, the hydraulic system maintains the pressure, and the cargo will not slip); the end buffer device of the side-shifting attachment, etc., reduces the accident rate.

3. Small loss of goods
With the help of the unique gripping, sideshifting, rotating and other functions of the attachment, the cargo can be transported or stacked or loaded and unloaded more safely, thereby minimizing the damage of the cargo. The use of attachments also reduces the frequency of use of pallets (such as palletless handling operations), and its corresponding procurement and maintenance costs.

For example, using the paper roll clamp to transport the paper roll can greatly reduce and avoid the damage of the paper roll. If a forklift without a paper roll clamp is used, the damage rate of the paper roll is 15%. For packaging with a large amount of paper and high paper quality 

Enterprises can recover their investment in accessories in a relatively short period of time, and the 15% breakage rate avoided thereafter can greatly reduce the production cost of enterprises;

The use of the adjusting fork enables the driver to adjust the fork distance by operating the handle as needed on the seat, which not only improves the work efficiency, reduces the labor intensity, but also avoids the damage of the tray and the damage of the fingers during adjustment;

Using a push-pull to carry materials and replacing a pallet with a sliding plate has low cost and saves the maintenance and stacking costs of the pallet, especially the stacking of goods in containers and carriages, which saves stacking space more effectively. This shows that forklift attachments play an important role in giving full play to the functions of the forklift.

The main components of common forklift attachments are: fixed components - brackets, working devices, working cylinders, and hose reeling and reeling devices.

Simple attachments: boom, string rod, oil drum clamp.

Complex attachments: buckets, fork sets, booms, flat clamps, paper roll clamps, pick rods, barrel clamps, ejectors, log clamps, booms, carton clamps, soft bag clamps, side shifters, tilters Turning forks, forward forks, all self-propelled lifting forks, etc.

Precautions for the use of forklift attachments

Various attachments are mostly composed of short piston hydraulic cylinders, high-pressure hoses, hose winders, quick connectors, circular sealing rings, and special parts for attachments. These parts can be cleaned and maintained with reference to general hydraulic parts.

In addition to the abnormal phenomena such as oil leakage and rupture of the pipeline system, especially the allowable load, lifting height, size of the cargo, the applicable scope of the attachment, and the width during operation should be paid attention to during the use of the attachment. Strictly follow the performance parameter table of the attachment, neither overload nor partial load.

For eccentric load operations, forklifts with small and medium tonnage with attachments, the short-term eccentric load range should be within 150mm.

In the use of forklifts, the fork thickness and fork length of the paired two forks should be roughly equal.

After the two forks are installed on the fork frame, the upper horizontal plane should be kept on the same plane.

The operating procedures must be strictly followed, and overloading or long-distance handling of goods is not allowed; when handling super-long or undetermined objects with an uncertain center of gravity, special personnel must be directed and extra caution must be exercised.

When using a fork to fork, the fork distance should be suitable for the width of the load, the fork should be inserted under the load as deep as possible, and the minimum gantry tilt should be used to stabilize the load and prevent the load from sliding backward. When the load is lowered, a small amount of the gantry can be used. Lean forward for safe loading and fork extraction.

When working, the fork should be in the form of low speed as far as possible, preferably 30~40mm from the ground, the mast should be properly tilted back, the fork should not be lifted or lowered arbitrarily during driving, and it should not turn on the slope or drive across the slope. The method of overturning the pallet by the fork unloads the goods; it is not allowed to use the fork to directly shovel dangerous goods and flammable goods, etc.; Easy to roll goods.
