When moving goods in factories, different handling equipment is used, mainly for handling and lifting, and it is an important component of logistics machinery.
Material handling equipment mhe can be roughly divided into five categories according to their functions: lifting machinery, conveyor belts, loading and unloading machinery, transport vehicles, and storage equipment.
In general, lifting machinery is used for lifting and handling, but the handling distance is short and its mechanism is intermittent; conveyor belts can continuously transport materials, and the handling route is generally fixed and mainly used for transporting loose materials; loading and unloading machinery can transport materials by itself and load and unload materials. Transport vehicles can flexibly arrange handling routes, transport long distances economically, and can operate indoors or outdoors, with wheels for driving; storage equipment is a device that completes stacking, picking, and storing materials in a warehouse, including silo equipment, high-rise warehouses, and feeders.
With the development of industry, many machines have multiple functions and uses. For example, forklifts are material handling equipment vehicles that can be used for loading and unloading, as well as lifting heavy objects. In this regard, the three most popular handling equipment are:
Material handling equipment mhe: electric hoist
The electric hoist is a special lifting equipment installed on overhead cranes and gantry cranes. It has the characteristics of small size, light weight, simple operation, and convenient use, and is used in industrial and mining enterprises, warehousing, and docks.
The outer casing of the electric hoist is made of alloy steel pressing, the hook is thickened and widened, and the hook is made of 2.0 manganese steel. It uses carburized chains, which has a stronger load-bearing capacity, and comes with a heat dissipation device, with better heat dissipation performance. Moreover, it has upper and lower limit switches (automatically stop at the top and bottom), motor protection level: IP54, and undervoltage protection. The key is the dual brake system: deceleration and gear double reduction (it won't slide down at all when stopped).
Material handling equipment mhe: manual hydraulic trolley
Also called a pallet jack, the manual hydraulic trolley is a small handling tool operated by manpower. The fork is easily inserted under the pallet and can solve the problem of logistics loading and unloading in some limited spaces.
This handling equipment is very common in supermarkets and construction sites, and it saves a lot of effort when transporting heavy objects.
Material handling equipment mhe: stacker
Some logistics workshops are relatively large, such as high-rise warehouses. At this time, hydraulic stackers are needed for pallet cargo stacking, loading and unloading, and handling operations. Even if your logistics workshop aisle is narrow and space is limited, hydraulic stackers can still be used.
Stackers are divided into manual, semi-electric, and fully electric, and you can choose the appropriate material handling equipment mhe according to your needs.
