Problems of the Industrial Age
But speaking of the industrial boom, we primarily mean the growth of construction and manufacturing capacity. And by analogy of the arms race of the superpowers of the 20th century, there was a race of building potential of all countries for 100 years. All this has led humanity to an unprecedented speed of creating products of various directions and applications and a new problem in the matter of transporting and carrying large-scale cargoes. Yes, industrialists stepped on their throats to their own song – they produced goods faster than they stored them. For the transportation of bulk cargoes, more people and storage areas were required. And if there were no special problems with the first one, there were always a lot of people who wanted to work, then there were certain difficulties with the areas.
Enterprises could not always increase the area in breadth and the only logical way out was to expand up. But along with this solution came problems with the first point. If by means of the most elementary portable instruments it was possible to transport the goods, even a team of the most persistent movers could not cope with lifting loads to a height of several meters. And if the enterprise provided for portable elevators, this significantly slowed the production process. Then it was decided to create trucks that can lift large-sized cargoes to a height of several meters with the help of one person.
The first successful models
With the creation of the first working copies, the hydraulic hand pallet truck has not changed much in technological terms. These are all the same functional technologies that greatly simplify the task beyond the power of man. The principle of operation of this loader is extremely simple: place the appropriate load on the intended place and use a hydraulic mechanism to lift it to the required height. This not only simplifies the work of a person, but also greatly speeds up the production process. As you know – the speed of production at the proper level of demand is a recipe for the success of the enterprise. Thus, by introducing profile tools into production, you will significantly optimize your expenses. In other words – buying a hydraulic stacker is a way to save money.
But speaking about the fact that the first copies do not differ much from modern models of loaders, we mean only the principle of work. Today’s representatives of the world’s best manufacturers develop new solutions every year, which they successfully integrate into their own stackers. If the “forehead” compare the first analogues of similar loaders with modern solutions, then you will see a lot of differences. And it concerns not only individual components and their availability in today’s representatives, but also as materials of manufacture. If the wheels of the first stacker analogs were created with the help of heavy metal alloys. today’s loader rollers that lifts loads of several tons a few meters in height are made of various lightweight but extremely durable materials, such as reinforced polyurethane and various recirculation materials.
Perfect choice for each client
Choosing a stacker for your needs is extremely important to consider the needs of your warehouse or the location of the application of this solution. If you do not have wide travel, then there are narrow-reach stackers on the market that are able to work in conditions that are not available in full-featured offers. In general, the choice of the modern model of the profile stacker consists in an ideal ratio of two factors: length and carrying capacity. Many manufacturers pursue the philosophy of producing multiple models of loaders, which differ only in their carrying capacity. The average citizen will find such a strange logic, but do not forget that we live in an era of total cost calculation and the issue of saving several thousand on one unit of equipment can affect the entire budget of your enterprise. It is for this reason that manufacturers regularly produce new models and constantly improve them according to current trends and current market needs.
If you do not know which model you prefer, then carefully collect all the data of your warehouse, write down all the goods with which you work at your production or outlet and in general outline the amount of goods passing through your warehouse per day. Do not forget about the “random product”, which is slightly heavier than ordinary cargo. All recorded data are analyzed by the managers of the forklift sales and based on the data received from you, you will be picked up by an ideal stacker that will become an integral part of your company for years of active use.
