Components of the Hinge lip dock leveller for loading dock
The dock leveler is one of the most important dock equipment. Thanks to this, and through it, loading and unloading operations are carried out, bridging the differences in level between the warehouse and the vehicle. But what parts make it up? Next we are going to scrap the standard loading dock hydraulic ramp.
1. Surface platform
It is the surface of the dock leveler, made up of a single piece, made of tear-shaped sheet steel and treated with an anti-corrosion system. Alapont Logistics levelers are especially characterized by their internal reinforcements, which have 10 beams that support the platform, thus giving the dock greater strength and durability. Thus avoiding deformations on the surface after the continuous passage of vehicles.
1. Hinged Lip.
2. Bridge deck.
2. Hinged Lip
This is the second piece that makes up the surface of the hydraulic ramp. This piece, also called a nail due to its angled finish, overcomes the small distances and unevenness between the dock and the vehicle platform.
It is made up of a steel structure, attached to the dock pit, and which supports the surface of the loading ramp. It contains the entire system that allows the elevation of the surface. Some of these elements are: lifting cylinders, frame, pre-frame, retainer, springs, maintenance strut, etc.
4. Hydraulic group
Alapont Logistics hydraulic levelers have a 1.1 Kw (1.5 CV-380 Volt triphasic) motorization system and a slow fall control of the spring, in the event of the truck leaving.
5. Deck and lip cylinders
Deck and lip cylinders provide the best in class operation. Full range at the touch of a button.
6. Security Toe Guards
Reduce the risk of foot-related injuries at the loading dock.
All these components are specifically designed to guarantee the durability and resistance of the dock leveller. Each one of them plays a primary role at the time of loading or unloading the truck.
