B&B Attachments to exhibit electronically operated attachment

B&B Attachments will exhibit KAUP’s first electronically operated fork positioner attachment at IMHX, the UK’s premier intralogistics event, to be held at the NEC, Birmingham during September 24-27, 2019. The event showcases thousands of products and services from all sectors of the logistics, material handling and storage industries. The new KAUP electric apositioner T160BE completely removes the requirement for hydraulic operation. The hydraulic hose installation over the mast and hydraulic connection is no longer necessary. A PLC with CAN-Bus-interface opens new communication possibilities between the attachment and forklift truck.

Electrically operated and electronically controlled, the sideshift and positioning of the fork tines can be set and controlled with absolute precision from inside the forklift truck. The forklift truck receives feedback on the exact position of the attachment and the fork tines. The capacity of the forklift truck in combination with an electric attachment is not restricted by distance of movement. Once programmed, the sideshift stroke cannot exceed the permission values related to the stability of the forklift truck. Additional functions also include a display, showing the service and maintenance requirements and evaluation of its operating hours.

The new KAUP electric fork positioner improves safety and productivity by ensuring precise position of the forklift forks set by the internal control panel.
