B&B Attachments’ first electronically-operated attachment at IMHX
B&B Attachments will exhibit KAUP’s first electronically-operated fork positioner attachment at IMHX, which takes place at the NEC, Birmingham from 24-27 September. IMHX is the UK’s premier intra logistics event and showcases thousands of products and services from all sectors of the logistics, material handling and storage industries. B&B Attachments will be present at stand 19H120.
The new KAUP electric fork positioner T160BE completely removes the requirement for hydraulic operation. The hydraulic hose installation over the mast and hydraulic connection is no longer necessary. A PLC with CAN-Bus-interface opens new communication possibilities between the attachment and forklift truck.
Electrically operated and electronically controlled the side shift and positioning of the fork tines can be set and controlled with absolute precision, from inside the forklift truck. The forklift truck receives feedback on the exact position of the attachment and the fork tines. The capacity of the forklift truck in combination with an electric attachment is not restricted by distance of movement. Once programmed the side shift stroke cannot exceed the permission values related to the stability of the forklift truck. Additional functions also include a display showing the service and maintenance requirements and evaluation of its operating hours.
