Drive Axle for Forklift - A forklift drive axle is actually a piece of equipment which is elastically fastened to a vehicle framework with a lift mast. The lift mast is connected to the drive axle and could be inclined round the drive axle's axial centerline. This is accomplished by at least one tilting cylinder. Forward bearing parts combined with back bearing components of a torque bearing system are responsible for fastening the vehicle and the drive axle framework. The drive axle could be pivoted around a swiveling axis oriented transversely and horizontally in the vicinity of the back bearing elements. The lift mast can likewise be inclined relative to the drive axle. The tilting cylinder is affixed to the lift truck frame and the lift mast in an articulated fashion. This enables the tilting cylinder to be oriented nearly parallel to a plane extending from the axial centerline and to the swiveling axis.
Unit H40, H45 and H35 forklifts, which are manufactured by Linde AG in Aschaffenburg, Germany, have a affixed lift mast tilt on the vehicle framework itself. The drive axle is elastically affixed to the framework of the forklift using numerous different bearings. The drive axle contains a tubular axle body along with extension arms connected to it and extend rearwards. This kind of drive axle is elastically connected to the vehicle framework using rear bearing parts on the extension arms together with frontward bearing tools situated on the axle body. There are two back and two front bearing tools. Each one is separated in the transverse direction of the forklift from the other bearing machine in its respective pair.
The drive and braking torques of the drive axle on tis particular model of lift truck are sustained utilizing the extension arms through the rear bearing components on the frame. The forces generated by the lift mast and the load being carried are transmitted into the floor or roadway by the vehicle frame through the front bearing components of the drive axle. It is essential to ensure the parts of the drive axle are constructed in a firm enough method in order to maintain strength of the forklift truck. The bearing parts could minimize minor bumps or road surface irregularities throughout travel to a limited extent and give a bit smoother function.
