Dock Levellers - Moving The Load
By Vince Bagwell, 19 April 2016 –
One problem to overcome at a loading bay is bridging the gap between the truck and the factory floor as not all trucks are the same height and this can also vary depending on how heavy the truck is laiden.
Dock levellers are the perfect solution to this problem and are a permanent fixture to each door of a docking bay. They comprise of a metal plate called a lip that is raised from a stowed position and then lowered onto the back of a truck, the lip can either be hinged or telescopic.
Mikrospin offer hydraulic power units designed especially for this purpose from our Bosch Rexroth range and have available from stock units suitable for use on either hinged lip and also telescopic types of dock leveller.
These units can be used for new systems but can also be used as a replacement for an existing power unit as they are interchangeable with most types of existing dock levellers.
