Dutch attachment maker MSE-Forks now offers RollerForks, a product designed to help companies go green through pallet-less shipping.
RollerForks simply replace the standard forks found on a lift truck. They consist of floating roller cartridges built into each fork, with each cartridge having two layers of rollers. When the forks are set down onto the floor, the upper rollers elevate above the fork surface. When the truck moves, the rollers spin in opposite directions, allowing them to easily creep under the load. When lifted, all rollers drop below the fork surface and the blades become virtually the same as any standard fork tines.
RollerForks can be used for handling slip-sheeted goods, bagged goods, FIBCs (flexible intermediate bulk containers), cartons, tires, and more. They can also be used as regular forks for pallet handling. Since they do not use hydraulics, the attachments pose no risk of oil contamination to food products.
