26 Valid from 01.09.2016 FORK POSITIONERS KAUP Fork Positioners The demands on material handling tasks are increasingly more complex. KAUP Fork Positioners accommodate these requirements, as they increase the flexibility and profitability with more handling capacity of every forklift truck. Especially when the width of the load changes constantly. For this reason Fork Positioners are the most frequent attachment found on forklift trucks after sideshifters. And KAUP offers a large variety of Fork Positioners - suitable for every transportation and operational task. KAUP Fork Positioners are also, in some cases, available as integrated version with even better residual capacity. Application recommendation for KAUP Fork Positioners Light duty Series T156: Starter series of KAUP Fork Positioners offer excellent value for money. The attachment is designed with hydraulic parallel movement with two cylinders and is based on the P4 sideshifter with fork positioning. Series T163S: Fork Positioners specially designed for handling narrow loads to be picked up outside the width of the forklift truck as well as for loading and unloading of containers. Series T163SN: Inexpensive, simple Fork Positioner with independent sideshift and absolutely symmetrical fork adjustment via positive synchronism by a chain. The original forklift truck forks can be used. The construction width and therefore the opening range of the attachment is not dependent on the width of the fork carriage of the forklift truck. Also available without sideshift function (T163N). Medium duty Series T160: Very economical Fork Positioner which allows the forklift truck driver excellent view on to the fork tips and the load. Fork Positioners T160 have a very favourable lost load centre. Therefore the achievable residual capacity is very good. Attachments in this range are fitted with „valve block sideshift“ as standard (see explanation on page 11). In addition the original forklift truck forks can be used on models T160 and T160BI. Models T160Z and T160IZ are fitted with weld-on forks. Series T466: Extremely variable concept with independent sideshift and a total of four different versions: T466 - hook-on design allowing the use of the original truck forks T466Z - hook-on design with forks welded on T466BI - integrated design allowing the use of the original truck forks T466BIZ - integrated design with forks welded on Special features: 1. Excellent residual capacity - especially the two versions with weld-on forks - T466Z / T66BIZ. 2. The integrated version has a minimum loss of the truck capacity - about 2 % - compared to the residual capacity of version with integrated sideshifter. Heavy duty Series T411Z, T411BZ, T411BZI and T411ZR (Fork Positioner with round forks) Fork Positioners for extremely tough operation. The T411Z range of Fork Positioners is based on the T400 Clamp series. Spreading forces occuring, for example when handling coils, cable drums, rolls or wire coils, can readily be supported due to the large overlap of sectional profiles between fork guide and clamp body. Independent sideshift enables the load to be handled with the forks fully opened or closed together. The BZ and BZI versions function valveblock sideshift. (No sideshift possible when the forks are opened to the widest position). Sideshift strokes are dependent on opening range. This version is standard design concept for large opening ranges - up to 5.600 mm measured over the inner edges of forks. The BZI version is for integration into the mast to achieve even better residual capacities.
