Types of AC Forklifts
In the current busy material handling market, low maintenance, application efficiency and of course high power are essential factors. AC technology is ideally suitable for indoor uses, especially with its brushless features. This type of forklift is virtually maintenance free and lets you concentrate on getting the job done.
There are different types of AC forklifts which could meet and even surpass all your needs. Design for indoor application offers low maintenance and reliable power. Several of the numerous kinds of high capacity lift trucks provided by Hyundai are Electric Counterbalanced Lift Trucks, Tow Tractors/ Tuggers, Walkie Trucks, Very Narrow Aisle Turret Lift Trucks, Electric Narrow Aisle Lift Trucks and Narrow Aisle Order Picker Lift Trucks.
More productive is the alternating current or AC technology. It is also more energy efficient. These types are much more cost effective and dependable compared to the conventional direct current or DC technology. AC forklifts were meant to provide high power indoor use. Usually, a battery of 36 to 80 volts is utilized to get the torque and power needed. The AC technology enables a longer time period in between recharging. This allows the forklift to be used for a longer time. Furthermore, the AC motors are absolutely enclosed and this lessens dust and exposure with no motor brushes, that means less sparking and a lot less maintenance.
Being able to eliminate your maintenance gives you more time to focus on your visit and saves you some money. As previously discussed, AC technology does not have motor brushes which also increases productivity and lowers maintenance. One more bonus is that AC motors have less components that are wearable resulting in savings on labor and components. AC motors are generally much quieter compared to DC motors and this helps increase operator awareness on the job location.
Nowadays, there are many manufacturers that provide AC power forklifts. Some of the available brands include Raymond, Hyundai, Yale, Hyster and Mariotti.
