NTP provides OH & S solution
NTP Forklifts Australia has supplied another Occupational Health & Safety solution to the textile industry.
A solution was required by the customer to reduce manual handling of 1000kg weaving beams during weaving production. The bulky weaving beams were traditionally moved by hand via a manual trolley.
A compact pedestrian tow truck was custom designed and built by Jungheinrich Germany, specifically to suit the application.
This tow tractor, model EJ210, has a towing capacity of 1000kg with a powered vertical tow ball lift for secure handling. With a small truck footprint and excellent manoeuvrability, the EJA210 is ideal for fore moving the weaving beams in and out of tight spaces amongst textile weaving machines with virtually no operator effort required.
The EJA drive unit offers powerful, but infinitely controlled acceleration from the maintenance free AC drive motor. Other standard Jungheinrich benefits include fully adjustable drive parameters including speed limiting, wear -free energy reclamation on braking, and automatic parking brake on stand-still. With extremely low energy consumption, the EJA is capable of extended or even multiple shifts on one battery charge.
The EJA was specified complete with a maintenance-free battery and a proprietary Jungheinrich on-board high frequency battery charger for prolonged battery life
