Types of AC Forklifts
In the current busy material handling market, low maintenance, application efficiency and of course high power are crucial features. AC technology is ideally suited for indoor uses, especially with its brushless features. This kind of forklift is practically maintenance free and lets you concentrate on getting the job done.
There are different kinds of AC forklifts that can suit and even exceed your requirements. Design for indoor application provides low maintenance and reliable power. Some of the numerous types of high capacity forklifts provided by Hyundai are Electric Counterbalanced Lift Trucks, Tow Tractors/ Tuggers, Walkie Trucks, Very Narrow Aisle Turret Lift Trucks, Narrow Aisle Order Picker Lift Trucks and Electric Narrow Aisle Lift Trucks.
Alternating current or AC technology is energy efficient and more productive. These models are a lot more cost effective and dependable compared to the traditional direct current or DC technology. AC forklifts were designed to provide high power indoor use. Usually, a battery of 36 to 80 volts is used to get the power and torque needed. The AC technology provides a longer time period in between recharging. This enables the forklift to be utilized for longer periods of time. Moreover, the AC motors are enclosed entirely and this lessens exposure and dust with no motor brushes, which means a lot less maintenance and less sparking.
Eliminating the need for maintenance will surely give you more time to concentrate on your visits. This could also save you a little money. As previously discussed, AC technology does not have motor brushes which also lessens maintenance and increases productivity. Another advantage is that AC motors have less parts that are wearable leading to 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 offer AC power forklifts. Several of the offered brands include Raymond, Hyundai, Mariotti, Yale and Hyster.
