More about the Lifting Tech Guide
Lifting technologies are important tools, not only in warehouses and distribution companies, but also to varying degrees in almost every factory or industrial business on a daily basis. Industrial trucks such as forklifts and lift trucks are used to transport loads, assist in picking goods and tools, and help to significantly speed up warehouse and shipping processes. These versatile operating aids are by no means technically undemanding tools to use. Modern electric forklifts and pallet trucks, in particular, require a certain level of basic technical knowledge. As is the case with most operating equipment, specific legal requirements must also be taken into account in the daily operation of industrial trucks.
Our Lifting Tech Guide can help. Among other things, our guide provides you with basic technical information on topics such as lever force, stability, and load capacity of forklifts and pallet trucks. We also provide you with calculation formulas and examples that you can put directly into practice. For example, you can use them to determine the width of the aisle or the rolling resistance of industrial trucks. In addition, we also explain legal regulations in the Lifting Tech Guide, for example, on the repair and maintenance of forklifts and lift trucks.
