Kalmar Container Handlers
The performance of the machinery is the overall result of how well the equipment functions and works together. The equipment's overall efficiency is determined by a combination of lifting speed, visibility, user-friendliness and capacity.
The engine and the equipment working hydraulics go through extreme lifting, which puts intense demands on the equipment. The lifting component is only a part of the operating cycle. Prior to the machinery being able to unload or load, the demands are placed on effective brakes, tight turning radius with high pulling process and precise control. All of these functions should be able to work in an optimum manner, even after heavy usage.
Each and every unit of empty container handlers are outfitted with straight six cylinder turbo charged engines that are equipped with intercooler. The engines are adapted to the particular working conditions of empty container handling. These conditions consist of high torque levels and high power at low engine speeds.
The engines of current models follow the stringent legal environmental demands that are now in the industry. The engines offer low exhaust emission levels, low noise and vibration levels, low fuel consumption characterize all engine alternatives.
All container handlers have been built with really durable hydrodynamic transmission systems. For quick acceleration with a minimum of "clutch-slip" the transmission has incorporated gearbox and torque converter. The gear changing is electrically achieved by solenoid valves. These offer 3 reverse and 3 forward gears that are controlled by means of an easily operated multifunction lever.
The rugged drive axles have engineered to handle the different working settings in ports and terminals. All axles have reduction in 2 stages - hub reduction and differential. These features ensure a minimum of strain on the transmission system. Moreover, the drive axles are fitted with a hydraulic braking system.
Service Brake System
All empty container handlers have wet disc brakes with oil cooled discs that are alternately fixed to and rotating with the hub. The disc brakes are pressed together by hydraulic pressure from the brake pedal, when the brakes are engaged. This provides efficient braking to the model. The system is basically maintenance free and is able to cope with heavy cargo over a long period of time. This particular system offers no fade and requires no need for brake adjustments.
