FMH Featured Solutions: AfterSort Rigid Two-Stage Truck Loader
High-traffic shipping areas increase the probability of collisions between forklifts and loading equipment.
In a time where businesses are facing strained shipping requirements, truck loading conveyors typically require resources to continually maintain. Aftersort rigid truck loaders provide a highly durable alternative with fewer moving parts that reduces maintenance requirements.
This equipment is built to withstand collisions with forklifts, trailer walls, or other equipment. AfterSort comes standard with many features that aid in this.
Standard with a recessed hard box for controls, the probability of a forklift breaking or accidentally operating the equipment is greatly reduced.
Users can select if they would like controls on the right- or left-hand side of the discharge end of the machine.
An emergency stop bar comes standard which aids in allowing a single user to operate the machinery safely. When engaged, the stop bar will stop movement and contract the equipment up to 12" from the position in which it was engaged.
The manual steering bar allows users to adjust the direction of the machine a total of seven degrees of movement left to right.
Heavy-duty structural steel channels reinforce the strength of the machine. Additionally, wheel covers ensure that no damage will be sustained by the tires by obstacles, forklifts, or other equipment.
The steel structure of AfterSort combined with rollers set low in the frame provide integrated side rails to maintain orientation during the loading process.
AfterSort comes standard with a herringbone transition, which ensures that packages coming off the permanent conveyor maintain their orientation and remain on the conveyor.
When loading and unloading trailers, workers are often exposed to extreme temperatures, especially in the summer months. AfterSort takes this into consideration with fan options.
Additionally, users have light options to increase visibility and workers' safety while inside trailers.
