Kalmar Container Handlers
The performance of the machinery is the overall result of how well the machinery functions and works together. The overall efficiency of the equipment is determined by a combination of visibility, lifting speed, capacity and user-friendliness.
The engine and the equipment working hydraulics go through extreme lifting, that places intense demands on the equipment. The lifting factor is only a part of the operating cycle. Prior to the equipment being able to unload or load, the demands are placed on effective brakes, tight turning radius with accurate control and high pulling power. All of these functions must be able to operate in an optimum fashion, even after heavy usage.
Each and every unit of empty container handlers are equipped with straight six cylinder turbo charged engines that are outfitted with intercooler. The engines are adapted to the particular working conditions of empty container handling. These conditions consist of high power and high torque levels at low engine speeds.
The engines of existing units comply with the strict legal environmental demands which are presently in the business. The engines offer low exhaust emission levels, low vibration and noise levels, low fuel consumption characterize all engine alternatives.
All container handlers have been built with really durable hydrodynamic transmission systems. For quick acceleration with a minimum of "clutch-slip" the transmission has incorporated torque converter and gearbox. The gear changing is electrically attained via solenoid valves. These provide 3 forward and 3 reverse gears which are controlled by means of a multifunction lever which is easily operated.
The rugged drive axles have engineered to handle the various working settings in ports and terminals. All axles have reduction in 2 stages - differential and hub reduction. These features ensure a minimum of strain on the transmission system. In addition, the drive axles are fitted with a hydraulic braking system.
Service Brake System
Wet Disc Brakes which have oil cooled discs that are alternately fixed to and rotating with the hub equip all empty container handlers. Once the brakes are engaged, the discs are pressed together by hydraulic pressure from the brake pedal. This provides effective braking to the model. The system can cope with heavy loads over a long period of time and is practically maintenance free. This system offers no fade and requires no need for brake adjustments.
