Forks are an important component in forklifts, used for handling goods. Understanding the basic knowledge and operating skills of forklifts is crucial for the safe and effective use of forklifts. This article will introduce the types, working principles, and operating techniques of forks, helping you better understand the use and maintenance of forks.

1、 Types of forks

Standard fork: This is the most common type of fork and is suitable for most goods. Standard forks come in different lengths and widths, and can be selected based on the size and weight of the goods.

Forward tilt fork: This type of fork has a forward tilt and is suitable for handling long shaped goods such as wood, pipes, etc.

Clamping fork: This fork is suitable for handling goods with special materials such as cardboard boxes and plastic baskets. The fork body of the clamp type cargo fork can grip goods without the need to lift them too high.

Eccentric hook type fork: This fork is suitable for handling pipe fittings, circular parts, etc. It has an eccentric hook at the top of the fork body, which can hook up the goods.

2、 Working principle of forks

The working principle of a cargo fork is based on the lever principle, which realizes the transportation of goods through the lifting and closing of the fork body and the opening and closing of the fork teeth. When the fork teeth are closed, the fork can be inserted into the interior of the goods; When the fork teeth are opened, the cargo fork can be raised or lowered to adjust the height and center of gravity of the cargo.

3、 Operating Techniques for Forks

Adjusting the fork length: Select the appropriate fork length based on the size and weight of the goods. Short forks may lead to insufficient stability, while long forks may cause inconvenience in operation.

Adjusting the height of the cargo fork: The height of the cargo fork should be adjusted to the appropriate position to ensure the stability and safety of the goods. Too high may cause the goods to fall, while too low may cause the center of gravity of the goods to be unstable.

Handle with care: When handling goods, handle with care to avoid damage to forks and goods.

Pay attention to safety distance: When inserting goods, pay attention to the distance between the edge of the goods and the fork to avoid damage to the fork caused by excessive insertion.

Pay attention to the operating posture: When operating the fork, the correct posture should be maintained to avoid prolonged bending, head bending, and other adverse postures that may cause fatigue or injury to the body.
