Types of AC Forklifts
Low maintenance, efficiency in application and high power are all important factors that must be taken into account in the busy material handling market these days. AC technology is ideally suitable for indoor uses, particularly with its brushless features. This type of forklift is virtually maintenance free and allows you to focus on getting the job done.
There are different types of AC forklifts that 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 forklifts provided by Hyundai are Tow Tractors/ Tuggers, Electric Counterbalanced Lift Trucks, Very Narrow Aisle Turret Lift Trucks, Walkie Trucks, Narrow Aisle Order Picker Lift Trucks and Electric Narrow Aisle Lift Trucks.
More productive is the alternating current or AC technology. It is also more energy efficient. These models are much more cost effective and dependable than the conventional direct current or DC technology. AC forklifts were meant to offer high power indoor use. Usually, a battery of 36 to 80 volts is used to obtain the torque and power necessary. The AC technology provides a longer time period in between recharging. This allows the forklift to be utilized for a longer time. Furthermore, the AC motors are enclosed completely and this reduces dust and exposure with no motor brushes, which means a lot less maintenance and less sparking.
Being able to eliminate your maintenance gives you much more time to concentrate on your visit and saves you some money. As discussed earlier, AC technology does not have motor brushes that also lowers maintenance and increases productivity. Another bonus is that AC motors have less wearable components leading to savings on labor and components. AC motors are overall a lot quieter than DC motors and this helps increase operator awareness on the jobsite.
Today, there are many manufacturers which provide AC power forklifts. Several of the available brands include Raymond, Hyundai, Yale, Hyster and Mariotti.
