When you buy leaf chain for telehander or forklift manufacturing you will probably find that it arrives in a box. When you receive it, you’ll have to sort it out and add other components to it before using it in the production line. You may have to cut it to length and store the rest. It can be quite a complex, time-consuming process locating all the components from different deliveries, and then assembling them ready for production.
A telescopic handler (telehandler) is a widely used and hugely versatile piece of equipment on a job-site.
But just like any other piece of substantial construction equipment, how well a telehandler can do its job is dependent upon the quality of its component parts.
In this blog post we describe six key industrial leaf chain product solutions that each play a role in ensuring the safe operation, consistent performance and long service life of a telehandler boom.
Ensuring your boom leaf chain is in good health is of utmost importance to telehandler and mobile elevated work platform (MEWP) owners.
Proactive maintenance not only guarantees safe operation, it also hugely reduces the risk of unscheduled downtime and improves the total cost of ownership.
When designing a leaf chain system for safety-critical forms of materials handling equipment such as forklift trucks or telehandler booms, there are some essential design elements that will ensure there is no compromise in the functionality, compliance and longevity of the chain.
In this blog post we explore six features to consider in leaf chain system design:
