Appliance Clamp

MICRON MHE Appliance Clamps are widely used in the handling of ‘white goods’, both in factories and warehouses, as well as other types of materials packed in cartons. The large surfaced arm pads, along with the high-friction vulcanized rubber lining, allow load handling with a reduced clamping pressure. This grants safe handling and reduces load damage risk. The arms have a rigid structure in order to ensure a uniform clamping force on the load surface.

Easy-Move: The intelligent solution to damage-free handling of white goods.
In the white goods industry, the handling problems caused using incorrect clamping force create a serious risk of damaging products. Insufficient pressure results in the product being dropped while too much pressure can crush it.
The Easy-Move integrates all the technical features of the standard appliance clamp with the most advanced technology in hydraulics, electronics and controlling clamping force.
The system is based on the detection, through laser and ultrasonic sensors, of the type and configuration of the load. The control unit commands a proportional valve that defines the correct hydraulic pressure in the clamping cylinders and therefore the clamping force necessary for the specific case. This sequence takes place instantaneously.

Fork Positioner

MICRON MHE Fork Positioners can be used in most common applications. This unit offers accurate fork positioning with a separate side shift. Standard forks of the truck can be used without modification as the unit comes standard with fork carriers.

The compact structure of the unit guarantees extremely reduced weight, effective thickness and centre of gravity. The excellent visibility is increased by the wide central window of the side shift and fork carriers, making it easier to load and unload vehicles. The fork carriers, actuated by two hydraulic cylinders, slide on a chromed bar in order to ensure fast, smooth and accurate fork positioning. MICRON MHE also offers a heavy duty designed fork positioner for tougher, heavier applications.

Forward Bin Inverter

MICRON MHE Forward Bin Inverter is a fork mounted unit designed to upend plastic and wooden bins alike. With its unique forward tip design the unit cradles the bins rather than clamping which results in less damages it the bins. This unit offers great visibility and ease of use for the driver when driving into bins.

The forward motion speeds up production as drivers find it easier to align than the old side rotation units when tipping. The unit uses 1 hydraulic function with a sequence valve than secures the bin in the front before tipping. Having the unit fork mounted makes the forklift versatile between a standard forklift truck and a bin tipper. This unit is perfect for fruit and vegetable tipping.

Mast Height Extension

MICRON MHE Mast Height Extensnion is designed to increase the lift truck height of the existing lift truck mast. By adding the mast height extension to a lift truck, you can increase the maximum height of your racking without the need to change the mast of buy a new lift truck.

Similarly, the mast height extension can be used to improve under-door clearance whilst maintaining greatest possible lift height. The new generation mast height extension has excellent visibility and guarantees 100% synchronization of movement because of its integrated equalizing system.
– Capacities are nominal and based on a load centre of 600mm
– requires one hydraulic function.
– Special capacities on request.

Multi Pallet Handlers

MICRON MHE Multi Pallet Handlers or single double pallet handlers, can through hydraulic positioning of the forks, pick up one or two pallets at a time. This can dramatically reduce handling time, with an important cost reduction during storage or loading and unloading of vehicles.

Generally, the multi pallet handler is widely used in all sectors characterized by heavy handling of palletized products. Thanks to its high performance this attachment has already achieved great success in breweries and the soft drink industries.

The single double pallet handler allows a handling time reduction of 50% compared to a standard forklift truck. Pallets of width 800 – 1200 mm can be handled and brought together even when spaced apart. Special openings available on request.

Paper Roll Clamp

MICRON MHE has been the leading supplier of solutions dedicated to damage free paper handling in Southern Africa for more than two decades. Paper Roll Clamps have been the primary choice for many of South Africa’s top paper producers, harbours and printing companies. Our country wide sales and service network provides paper handling expertise, state-of-the-art equipment, dedicated service and handling training.

Paper roll clamps are designed for heavy duty handling of horizontal and vertical paper rolls. A wide range of capacities and openings ensure that the right model is always available, regardless of the size of your project or the dimensions of the paper roll. Dedicated models are available for single roll handling as well as multiple roll handling. Standard mounting hooks and a possibility to use a wide variety of specialized mountings ensure that these clamps can be fitted to any lift truck.

Intelligent Paper Roll Clamps – ‘intelligent’ model paper roll clamp utilizers advanced microprocessor technology to control the main hydraulic functions of the paper roll clamp. This results in the paper roll clamp using the minimum amount of clamping force which prevents paper roll out-of-roundness. When the ‘intelligent’ paper roll clamp is selecting the correct clamping force during handling, it takes the following factors into account: paper quality; roll weight; roll diameter; contact pad friction, roll wrapper friction; environmental factors and dynamic factors.

Push Pull

MICRON MHE fork mounted Push Pull enables the user to handle, ship and store a wide variety of boxed, bagged, unboxed, cylindrical or rolled goods using slip sheets. The more common use of fibre and plastic slip sheets instead of traditional wooden pallets to handle loads, creates problems for companies where handling of goods on slip sheets is insufficient to justify the use of a forklift truck totally dedicated to this application.

This fork mounted push pull offers the possibility of converting a conventional forklift truck into a specially equipped machine to handle loads on slip sheets without any loss of productivity and with no compromise to safety.

Roller Forks

The use of pallets in most companies to store goods is unavoidable. But what if you want to save time and space by sending your goods out without pallets? Roller forks offer a new revolution in pallet less handling.

Roller Forks are in fact ‘standard’ lift truck forks with two layers of rollers. When the bottom layer of rollers touches the floor, it causes the upper most rollers to rotate in the opposite direction whereby the forks slide under the slip-sheet without disturbing the product. When the forks are lifted, the rollers ‘fall’ downwards and place the product securely on the upper side of the forks, enabling the product to be unloaded in the opposite loading order.
The unique characteristics of Roller Forks:

  • No hydraulics required
  • Actual weight of Roller Forks is almost the same as standard lift truck forks
  • Drivers visibility is not obstructed
  • Lift truck can be used to perform standard tasks
  • Products can easily be placed on a pallet
  • Loading and unloading is faster than a push pull system
  • Investment costs are lower
