Situations can arise that may cause damage to goods or even injury to persons whenever you have to lift loads and/or goods that are longer than your current forklift truck forks. Loads can tip forwards when there is an insufficient load-bearing surface supporting the load while lifting. Forks that are too long can damage other goods and pallets but can also lift the pallet behind causing stacks to fall over. Customers do not accept such damage, and associated costs – as summarized below – can rarely be compensated.
- load has to be returned to packaging department
- packaging has to be removed
- contents have to be inspected for damage
- damage reports have to be filed
- contents have to be repackaged
- load has to be returned to loading station
When hydraulic forks extensions or manual sliding forks are not frequently used they will be probably too expensive. For those applications MSE-Forks has designed an alternative. Extensive expertise in the field of bending and sheet metalworking has resulted in new and manually extendible slide-on fork extensions that meet the most stringent quality standards. Using special sheet metalworking techniques, a slide-on extension has been created that is partially open along its lower surface, but has the characteristics of a closed sleeve.
