The retrofit telescopic fork 60-166-HK-1400

Retrofit offers our customers the possibility to improve their existing systems with the help of different strategies. AFB sucesfully replaced an existing telescopic fork from a competitor in the existing installation of an automobile manufacturer. There it now supports the storage of trays with spare parts safely and dynamically.

Reliable service on site

For the successful replacement of the old unit, the installation conditions on site were recorded and documented by one of our employees. The customer himself did not have to take care of the mechanical interface.

State-of-the-art technology for more performance

The customer then received a telescopic fork designed to suit his system and the requirements. Thanks to the state-of-the-art technology, he now has the opportunity to increase the performance of his existing installation. At the same time, the automated storage availability is increased because there are significantly fewer disruptions during operation.
