13 Attachments with sideshift function Nearly all KAUP attachments are available with either independent sideshift or valveblock sideshift, as required, at no extra cost. Independent sideshift Sideshift is the most common additional function on a forklift truck. Nearly all KAUP attachments with sideshift function are designed serially with independent sideshift providing enhanced safety and comfort. The advantages of independent sideshift 1. The maximum allowable sideshift stoke (e.g. ± 100 mm) or any other data given by the forklift truck manufacturer can be adhered to without additional restrictions on the residual capacity. 2. Sideshift function is always available, independent of fork or arm position (clamp or fork positioners). 3. End-of-stroke slow-down -SOFTSTOP- reduces the speed over the last 15 mm and therefore prevents accidents. 4. The lower roller guides -SMOOTHROLL- assure a smooth lateral movement, prevent wear and tear and save energy. 5. Components of KAUP independent sideshift are designed so that the lost load centre of the attachment does not increase and accordingly the residual capacity of the truck is not reduced. 2.370 mm - = : 4 = 570 mm 1.800 mm 1.800 mm : 4 450 mm Subject to alteration Valveblock sideshift (integrated sideshift) In addition to the independent sideshift system all KAUP clamps and fork positioners are available with so called integrated or valveblock sideshift function. This version uses the rest-stroke of the cylinder for the function „sideshift“. Therefore the sideshift function is not available in completely opened and/or completely closed position of arms. Sideshift values in the intermediate positions can be considerably above maximum safety values for lateral stability. The maximum possible lateral stroke of valveblock sideshift can be calculated with the following formula: Calculation of largest possible valveblock sideshift stroke Example Largest possible opening range (largest measurement „A“ selected from the table) minus smallest possible opening range (smallest measurement „A“ selected from the table) results in divided by the factor 4 largest possible sideshift stroke ± For example see Appliance Clamp 2T413G, construction width 1.520 mm, A = 570 - 2.370 mm, page 78.
