Title (EN) A LOAD HANDLING APPARATUS FOR A FORKLIFT
(FR) APPAREIL DE MANUTENTION DE CHARGE POUR CHARIOT ÉLÉVATEUR À FOURCHE
Abstract:
(EN) A load handling apparatus (28) for a load handling vehicle such as a forklift comprises a rear load handling section (38) including mounting means for securing the rear load handling section to the lifting mechanism of a forklift mast assembly. A front load handling section (40) in use supports the load. The front load handling section (40) is rotatably mounted to the rear load handling section (38), such that the front load handling section (40) is able to rotate relative to the rear load handling section (38). The load handling apparatus (28) has a lateral axis transverse to the rotational axis of the front load handling section (40). Actuating means (52) are arranged to rotate the front load handling section (40) relative to the rear load handling section (38), and an attitude sensor [no reference sign provided] is configured to provide a signal indicative of the lateral attitude of the rear load handling section (38) relative to the horizontal. A controller [no reference sign provided] is configured to automatically control the actuating means in response to a signal from the attitude sensor to rotate the front load handling section (40) relative to the rear load handling section (38) to optimise load stability.
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil (28) de manutention de charge destiné à un véhicule de manutention de charge tel qu'un chariot élévateur à fourche, qui comprend une section (38) de manutention de charge arrière comprenant des moyens de montage destinés à fixer la section de manutention de charge arrière au mécanisme de levage d'un ensemble mât de chariot élévateur à fourche. Une section (40) de manutention de charge avant, en cours d'utilisation, supporte la charge. La section (40) de manutention de charge avant est montée rotative sur la section (38) de manutention de charge arrière, de telle sorte que la section (40) de manutention de charge avant soit apte à tourner par rapport à la section (38) de manutention de charge arrière. L'appareil (28) de manutention de charge a un axe latéral transversal à l'axe de rotation de la section (40) de manutention de charge avant. Un moyen d'actionnement (52) est agencé pour faire tourner la section (40) de manutention de charge avant par rapport à la section (38) de manutention de charge arrière et un capteur d'attitude [pas de signe de référence fourni] est conçu pour fournir un signal indicatif de l'attitude latérale de la section (38) de manutention de charge arrière par rapport à l'horizontale. Un organe de commande [pas de signe de référence fourni] est conçu pour commander automatiquement le moyen d'actionnement en réponse à un signal provenant du capteur d'attitude, afin de faire tourner la section (40) de manutention de charge avant par rapport à la section (38) de manutention de charge arrière, de manière à optimiser la stabilité de charge.
