Whereas the introduction of slip-sheets has been extremely successful within many sectors, the hydraulic push pull attachments required are often so heavy and expensive they counteract any potential benefits. This is why Meijer Handling Solutions introduced its patented mechanical RollerForks® system. This attachment is ideal for handling single-stacked loads. For multi-stacked goods go to RollerForks® Push-Pull or Push-Pulls.
ROLLERFORKS® are special-purpose forklift truck attachments that can be used to load and unload containers/trucks and can be mounted on all existing forklift trucks, ideally with a tilt option. The patented ROLLERFORKS® is one of the most common handling solutions for single stacked goods because of its overall handling speed.
ROLLERFORKS® are special-purpose forks for forklift trucks that support loads by means of a special, heel-mounted hinge that allows forks to lie flat on the ground. Inside the forks are two layers of rollers, one on top of the other, that rotate one another when the forks are moved along the ground.
The basic principle involves the upper rollers rotating at exactly the same speed, but in the opposite direction to that of the lower rollers that are in contact with the floor. When the RollerForks® are lifted off the floor, the rollers automatically drop to allow the load to rest on top of the forks.
To improve handling speed the ROLLERFORKS® should ideally be used in combination with a ROLLERFORKS®-pallet (RF-Pallet) consisting of a special entrée on its top surface.
