    Forklift clamps help factories and various project sites where machine power is needed to lift and move objects. The clamp is perfect for handling loads faster, more efficiently, and safer, with less damage when handling loads.

    What Parts Construct a Forklift Clamp Attachment?

    This often-overlooked attachment consists of hydraulic and electrical circuits, valves, seals, bearings, cylinders, and clamp arms.

    What are the signs that a Forklift Clamp Attachment is faulty?

    Incorrect load handling, external leaks, defective or worn seals, and incorrect hydraulic pressure can negatively influence the clamping function. For peak performance and productivity, avoid these by doing a few tests.

    Clamp Function Supply Test

    Check the flow volume and pressure at the hose terminal. Make sure it’s within range of the operator’s guide. To check for external leaks at hoses, valves, and fittings, hold the lever clamped for a few seconds and release.

    Clamp Circuit Test

    Fully open and close the arms, then position them mid-way. Turn your machine off and check the main valve with a pressure gauge. If the pressure drop exceeds the attachment’s guide limits, you’ll need to replace the valve cartridge.

    If the pressure still drops beyond the manual’s limits, the cylinder seals are faulty and need replacing.

    Cylinder Pressure Test

    Perform the same examination by connecting all cylinders - or one at a time, depending on test port availability. Pressure dropping more than the max in the operator’s guide, the side-shift cartridge is faulty and needs a service. If the pressure doesn’t drop more in the initial or additional release, the second cylinder is faulty.

    How do I Choose a Forklift Clamp Attachment?

    When choosing your clamp attachment, you’ll need to decide how you want to handle the load. You’ll also need to consider the load weight, the height it needs to be lifted, and the number of hydraulic functions required.

    What are my Options for Forklift Clamp Attachments?

    There are a few different clamp types for a forklift; each differs according to the material it’ll be handling. We will share more detail on a few of the common types below.

    Bale Clamps - Handling of almost any bale product is possible with this accessory, from cotton, wood, hay, newsprint, textiles, and scrap metal to corrugated bales. The bales are supported from the bottom and held at the sides.

    Pulp Bale Clamps - You’ll find this accessory in-use in mills, warehousing, transporting services, and on ships. They’re effective for bountiful pulp bales with the lowest damage done to the load.

    Recycling Clamps - In manufacturing these clamps, they utilize tough, durable mediums that can handle harsh loads. This attachment often has alloy steel bars consisting of high-load bearings with frame bumpers for cylinder protection.

    Drum Clamps - This hydraulically-powered accessory is in use where chemical containers are present. This type is for tipping or pouring contents out of the barrels. Some of these attachments are configured to handle up to 4 barrels simultaneously.

    No-arm Clamps - Arms are customized for functionality, with each clamp having two arm pads where they attach with bolts. The arm pads are a base for these specialized arms. Sometimes the existing tines or arms are welded into place on these pad bases.

    There are also multi-purpose clamps, pole tine, harbor, appliance, cement, timber, brick, and block clamps, which have special functions.
