HYDRAULIC DOCK LEVELLER WITH SEGMENTED TELESCOPIC LIP (PTU)
PROMStahl’s new product, the PTU, is a stationary electro-hydraulic dock leveller with a segmented telescopic lip. It represents the optimal solution for loading and unloading different types of vehicles like for example lorries and vans. This versatility leads to enormous cost savings.
The most important feature of this type of leveller is its segmented (3-part) telescopic lip. Depending on the type of vehicle docked (lorry or van) the operator chooses the related mode of operation on the control unit. For vans, only the 1200 mm segment in the middle of the telescopic lip is extended. In this case the leveller’s load capacity is 20 kN. Thanks to the PTU’s special design, the weight on the van is hydraulically reduced to about 100 kg.
