Warp Beam Lift Truck with Harness Mounting Device KHUR12 GEV

With tube grippers, for inserting drawn-in full warp beams in weaving machines

The drawn-in warp is, together with the harness, very gently taken over by the storage truck TLS and transported to the weaving machine. An automatic retraction device secures the harness in the transport position and guarantees safety against overturning of the device.
It is a very agile vehicle which is operated by one person and which is hardly longer than the warp beam. It permits turning on the spot and can therefore be easily handled in narrow aisles.
Since the “legs” of truck do not have to go round the weaving machine, it is suitable for different weaving machine types.
The automatic motion sequence of the supporting rollers during the lowering procedure and the lateral side-shift facility of the warp beam make it easier to position the warp beam in the warp beam support. Furthermore, the vehicle is steerable during the crosswise drive.
Due to its large central running wheels, the vehicle can be very easily shifted.
Height-adjustable tube grippers are very helpful for warp beams with bearing by beam drive adapters in order to meet exactly the center of the warp beam with the axle.
