Success-Story-14-Challenge The Challenge

Wheels from our competitors have been used for many years on a range of electric high-lift forklifts. Vehicle tests discovered that capsizing risk of these high-lift devices is unsatisfactory. This is why the vehicles were subjected to a thorough, costly check of the capsizing risk. An increase in the resistance against tilt could only be achieved through a new vehicle design or with special pallet truck rollers. The previous manufacturers were not able to provide a solution.

Success-Story-14-Solution Our Solution

We designed and created samples of special HBW series pallet truck rollers with Blickle Besthane® treads in the sizes 85x113 and 85x88 with a hardness of 96° shore A and a special tread pattern. The excellent shock absorption values produced in our test lab have been confirmed by our customer in practical tests. By using the Blickle Besthane® pallet truck rollers, the manufacturer can achieve improvement results of up to 50% in stability compared to the 92° shore A wheels from the competition. The complete vehicle series is now equipped with the Blickle HBW rollers.
