Kinds of AC Forklifts
Efficiency in application, low maintenance and high power are all important features that should be taken into account in the busy material handling market nowadays. AC technology is ideally suited for indoor applications, especially with its brushless features. This particular kind of forklift is practically maintenance free and allows you to concentrate on finishing the job.
There are various types of AC forklifts that could meet and even exceed your needs. Design for indoor use provides dependable power and low maintenance. Several of the many kinds of high capacity forklifts provided by Hyundai are Tow Tractors/ Tuggers, Electric Counterbalanced Lift Trucks, Walkie Trucks, Very Narrow Aisle Turret Lift Trucks, Narrow Aisle Order Picker Lift Trucks and Electric Narrow Aisle Lift Trucks.
More productive is the AC or alternating current technology. It is also more energy efficient. These models are much more cost effective and reliable compared to the conventional DC or direct current technology. AC forklifts were meant to provide high power indoor use. Generally, a battery of 36 to 80 volts is utilized to get the power and torque needed. The AC technology enables a longer time period in between recharging. This enables the forklift to be used for a longer time. In addition, the AC motors are completely enclosed and this lessens exposure and dust with no motor brushes, which means a lot less maintenance and less sparking.
Eliminating the need for maintenance would definitely give you a lot more time to concentrate on your visits. This can also save you some money. As discussed previously, AC technology does not have motor brushes that also lowers maintenance and increases productivity. One more bonus is that AC motors have less wearable components resulting in savings on parts and labor. AC motors are overall much quieter than DC motors and this helps increase operator awareness on the job site.
Some manufacturers now provide AC power forklifts. Some of the brands available include Raymond, Hyundai, Yale, Hyster and Mariotti.
