The forklift loads a Euro pallet onto its fork and drives into the narrow aisle between the high racks. When he arrives at his destination, he lifts the pallet to a height of 15 m, pushes it to its storage location and returns shortly afterwards to load the next pallet.

Exposed to high loads

Storage and retrieval machines such as this stacker use so-called telescopic forks, which are the interface in warehouses between the load to be transported and the storage and retrieval machine (RBG) and are exposed to high loads. Römer Fördertechnik GmbH (RFT), with its headquarters in Wetter (Ruhr) in North Rhine-Westphalia, offers telescopic forks for the single-deep storage of Euro pallets or wire mesh boxes weighing up to 1500 kg.

RTF guarantees a high level of safety and quality for its products - also for the company's new, frequency-controlled telescopic forks. "Compared to the old devices, we were able to reduce the overall height by approx. 28%," explains Dr. Jürgen Baier, responsible for technical sales and customer service at Römer Fördertechnik. "This advantage also makes the solution interesting for existing customers. We offer you a general overhaul in a ring exchange.”The telescopic fork to be overhauled is replaced with a replacement fork without the system coming to a standstill.

Forks available in two versions

The telescopic forks from Römer Fördertechnik should be suitable for single-deep storage of Euro pallets or wire mesh boxes with a weight of up to 1500 kg. They are available in two versions: According to the RTF, the DS (double sinuid) forks are designed for mechanical drive systems that accelerate or decelerate the load sinusoidally in the end positions. These extension devices are suitable for the exchange of old, worn telescopic forks with this drive system. No further control-related changes to the storage and retrieval machine should be necessary.

The F-fork, on the other hand, works with a simpler and robust linear chain drive and frequency-controlled drives, according to RTF. These telescopic forks should be suitable for handling load aids such as Euro pallets or wherever high loads up to max. 1500 kg must be moved reliably in three-shift operation.

Company relies on quality

"A fully functional telescopic fork is just as important for a storage and retrieval machine as the electricity with which the system is operated," says Dr. Jürgen Baier. “If one component fails, the system comes to a standstill. Delivery difficulties and downtime costs are the result.”To avoid this, RFT only uses high-quality and durable components. The company has been purchasing the required ball bearings and support rollers from the Karlsruhe roller bearing specialist Findling for many years. When deciding specifically for this partner, not only the quality of the components, but also the price-performance ratio played a major role, says Dr. Jürgen Baier: “We were impressed by the division of the range into four different performance classes. So we get exactly the level of performance we need without paying too much.”

Cages, clearance, fits: Specify rolling bearings correctly

The ABEG method developed by Findling Rolling Bearings facilitates the correct design of the bearings and avoids technical oversizing. "This enables savings of up to 80 percent to be achieved," explains Klaus Findling, Managing Director of Findling Wälzlager GmbH. In order to enable a comprehensive and manufacturer-independent presentation of the global range of rolling and plain bearing technology, Findling audits and categorizes national and international manufacturers of plain and rolling bearings as well as their products and manufacturing processes. ABEG is divided into four different performance classes - from high-end bearings for particularly high requirements to products that are intended for use with lower demands in the cost-sensitive area.According to Findling, the methodology thus offers a comprehensible and transparent basis for decision-making in order to select rolling bearings that are technically and economically optimal.
