Types of AC Forklifts
Low maintenance, efficiency in application and high power are all important features which must be taken into account in the busy material handling market today. AC technology is ideally suited for indoor uses, especially with its brushless features. This kind of forklift is virtually maintenance free and lets you concentrate on getting the job done.
There are various AC forklifts offered to meet and exceed all your individual business needs. Design for indoor application offers dependable power and low maintenance. Some of the many types of high capacity forklifts provided by Hyundai are Tow Tractors/ Tuggers, Electric Counterbalanced Lift Trucks, Walkie Trucks, Very Narrow Aisle Turret Lift Trucks, Electric Narrow Aisle Lift Trucks and Narrow Aisle Order Picker Lift Trucks.
AC or alternating current technology is energy efficient and more productive. These types are much more reliable and cost effective than the traditional direct current or DC technology. AC forklifts were designed to provide high power indoor use. Generally, a battery of 36 to 80 volts is used to get the torque and power necessary. The AC technology enables a longer time period in between recharging. This enables the forklift to be utilized for a longer time. Additionally, the AC motors are enclosed completely and this reduces dust and exposure with no motor brushes, which means much less maintenance and less sparking.
Being able to eliminate your maintenance gives you much more time to concentrate on your visit and saves you a little money. As previously discussed, AC technology does not have motor brushes that also lessens maintenance and increases productivity. One more advantage is that AC motors have less wearable parts 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 location.
Today, there are many manufacturers that provide AC power forklifts. Several of the available brands comprise Raymond, Hyundai, Mariotti, Yale and Hyster.
