The overall result of how well the equipment's functions work together is categorized by the performance of the machinery. The equipment's overall efficiency is determined by a combination of visibility, lifting speed, user-friendliness and capacity.
The engine and the working hydraulics go through extreme lifting and this puts intense demands on the machinery. The lifting component is only a part of the operating cycle. Prior to the machine being able to load or unload, the demands are placed on effective brakes, tight turning radius with precise control and high pulling power. All of these functions must be able to operate in an optimum fashion, even after heavy usage.
Every unit of empty container handlers are outfitted with straight six cylinder turbo charged engines which are equipped 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 models comply with the strict legal environmental demands that are currently within the business. The engines offer low vibration and noise levels, low exhaust emission levels, low fuel consumption characterize all engine alternatives.
All container handlers have been made with really durable hydrodynamic transmission systems. For quick acceleration with a minimum of "clutch-slip" the transmission has integrated torque converter and gearbox. The gear changing is electrically achieved by solenoid valves. These offer 3 reverse and 3 forward gears that are controlled by means of an easily operated multifunction lever.
The drive axles are designed to deal with the extreme and tough working settings in terminals and in ports. 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
All empty container handlers have wet disc brakes with oil cooled discs that are alternately fixed to and rotating with the hub. The disc brakes are pressed together by hydraulic pressure from the brake pedal, once the brakes are engaged. This offers effective braking to the model. The system could deal with heavy cargo over a long period of time and is basically maintenance free. This particular system requires no need for brake adjustments and offers no fade.
