How much do you know about electric forklifts?

Forklifts play a very important role in the logistics system of various enterprises. Widely used in stations, ports, airports, factories, warehouses and other small and medium-sized enterprises. It is an efficient equipment for mechanized loading and unloading, stacking and short-distance transportation.
my country has been manufacturing forklifts since the early 1950s. With the rapid development of my country's economy, the materials of most enterprises are gradually transformed from the original manual handling to the mechanized handling mainly by forklifts. Therefore, in the past few years, the annual demand of my country's forklift market has grown at a double-digit rate.
At present, there are many brands of forklifts available on the market, the models are complex, and the products themselves have strong technology. Therefore, how to choose has become a problem that enterprises often face. Therefore, our electric forklifts are mainly introduced from the aspects of model selection, brand selection, performance evaluation criteria and so on.
Forklifts can generally be divided into three categories: internal combustion forklifts, electric forklifts, and storage forklifts.
A. Internal combustion forklift
Internal combustion forklifts are further divided into ordinary internal combustion forklifts, heavy-duty forklifts, container forklifts and side forklifts.
(1) Ordinary internal combustion forklift
Generally, diesel, gasoline, liquefied petroleum gas or natural gas engines are used as power, with a load capacity of 1.2 to 8 tons, and a working channel width of 3.5 to 5 meters. Places with no special requirements for emissions and noise. Due to the convenience of fuel replenishment, it can realize continuous operation for a long time, and it can work in harsh environments (such as rainy days).
(2) Heavy-duty forklift
Diesel engines are used as power, and the carrying capacity is 10 to 52 tons. It is generally used for outdoor operations in the wharf, steel and other industries with heavy cargo.
(3) Container forklift
Diesel engines are used as power, and the carrying capacity is 8 to 45 tons. Generally, it is divided into empty container stackers, heavy container stackers and container reach stackers. For container handling, such as container yard or port terminal operations.
(4) Side forklift
The diesel engine is used as the power, and the carrying capacity is 3 to 6 tons. In the case of no turning, it has the ability to directly fork the goods from the side, so it is mainly used to fork long-shaped goods, such as wooden bars, steel bars, etc.
 B. Electric forklift
Powered by electric motor and battery as energy. The carrying capacity is 1 to 4.8 tons, and the width of the working channel is generally 3.5 to 5 meters. Because there is no pollution and low noise, it is widely used in working conditions with high environmental requirements, such as medicine, food and other industries. Since each battery generally needs to be charged after about 8 hours of operation, a backup battery is required for multi-shift operation.
C. Storage forklift
Warehouse forklifts are mainly forklifts designed for handling goods in warehouses. Except for a few storage forklifts (such as manual pallet forklifts) that are driven by manpower, others are driven by electric motors, which are widely used in the storage industry because of their compact body, flexible movement, light weight and good environmental performance. When working in multiple shifts, electric motor-driven storage forklifts require backup batteries.
