VARIAXIS

Telescopic fork with VARIAXIS

In many automated warehouses, due to productive reasons, the handling of different types of loads (and thus of different containers) may be needed.

With a set of forks having fixed inter-axis, the handling of only one specific kind of loads is allowed. Instead, it`s possible to handle different kinds of loads by installing under the fork set an ADJUSTABLE INTER-AXIS SYSTEM. It`s a relatively simple system that makes the stocking operation more flexible and versatile. A motor operates a system of screws with recirculating balls and prismatic rails; it`s possible to shift only one fork, or both of them symmetrically. It`s provided as extra equipment; however, it has to be established along with LHD`s technical staff, since it`s not possible to install it at a later stage. The shift movement of adjusting the inter-axis is very quick and it`s programmed to occur in masked time.

The VARIAXIS can be applied to all LHD telescopic forks, even to inclined forks designed for handling coils.
