  • 2022-05-17

With the development of various industries, the application of forklifts has gradually spread to various industries in various fields around the world. How much do you know about the wide application of UNITCM brand forklifts? If we want to buy a new forklift, then how do we need to choose the model and configuration of the forklift? As a professional forklift research and production manufacturer, we will give you a brief introduction to how to choose a forklift and the configuration of the forklift.

First of all, we should take into account the job function of the forklift
The basic operating functions of forklifts are divided into horizontal handling, stacking/picking, loading/unloading, and picking. According to the operation function to be achieved by the enterprise, it can be preliminarily determined from the models introduced above. In addition, special operation functions will affect the specific configuration of the forklift, such as paper rolls, molten iron, etc., and the forklift needs to be installed with attachments to complete the special functions.
Secondly, we should also consider the operating requirements of the forklift
The operating requirements of the forklift include general requirements such as pallet or cargo specifications, lifting height, working channel width, grade of grade, etc., and also need to consider the operating efficiency (different models have different efficiencies), operating habits (such as habitual driving or standing), etc. aspect requirements.
The third is the working environment of the forklift
If the goods or warehouse environment that the enterprise needs to transport has environmental protection requirements such as noise or exhaust emission, it should be considered when selecting models and configurations. If it is in a cold storage or in an environment with explosion-proof requirements, the configuration of the forklift should also be a cold storage type or an explosion-proof type. Carefully examine the locations that the forklift needs to pass through during operation, and imagine possible problems, such as whether the door height affects the forklift when entering and leaving the warehouse; when entering and exiting the elevator, the impact of the elevator height and load on the forklift; when working upstairs, the floor load Whether the corresponding requirements are met, etc.
When selecting and determining the configuration, it is necessary to describe the working conditions in detail to the forklift supplier and conduct on-site investigations to ensure that the purchased forklift fully meets the needs of the enterprise. Even if the analysis of the above steps is completed, there may still be several models that can meet the above requirements at the same time. At this point, you need to pay attention to the following aspects:
① Different models have different work efficiency, so the number of forklifts and drivers required are also different, which will lead to a series of changes in costs.
②If the forklift works in the warehouse, the width of the aisle required by different models is different, and the lifting capacity is also different, which will bring about changes in the layout of the warehouse, such as changes in the storage capacity of goods.
③ Changes in models and their numbers will have an impact on many aspects such as fleet management.
④The market ownership of different models is different, and their after-sales support capabilities are also different.
After a comprehensive assessment of the impact of the above aspects, choose the most reasonable plan.

In addition to the above points to be considered, if you all have other differences on how to choose the model and configuration of the forklift, welcome to communicate with us.
