This profile is made for people who Works in ports and container´s storage centres.
In your terminals operate different types of machines , not all of them have servotransmission, and so, we have to make a distintion between them. A part from your gearbox, manufacturer (TEREX, FANTUZZI, KONE, FERRARI, TERBERG…) those who have servo transmissions installed are: forklifts with front and side loaders, Reach Stakers, head tractors or containers.
Exists a wide variety of transmissions, but we can emphasize the brands like ZF, ALLISON, and CLARK (DANA SPICER). The main characteristics are the following:
- are automatic servo transmissions that works with a torque converter
- they work basically, thanks to the action of the oil pressure distributed through a valve body (electro valvs) ruled by an electronic device, which apllies the puistons making the friction disks stop.
- the electronic device can be the one made from the manufacturer (ZF, ALLISON , CLARK) or another one in common with the manufacturer (normally is CLARK)
- different sizes depending on the torque they have to transmit.
- their maintenance must be very severe because they work in a very corrosive environment.
- the peripheral components are also subjected to this corrosive environment.
A part from what we know regarding servos, other components, very important and that you also find in the gear boxes and Autosur knows perfectly well are:
- Auxiliar pumps: used to activate hydraulic elements through the inside gear of the transmission. These pumps supply the necessary pressure to actívate “ that” auxiliar component.
- Steerings: the hydraulic systems for steerings have been and continue being a strong base in our Company. These systems stand out, basically, for being security systems which, any negligence or default can be the origin of major problems. These systems consist in: steering pumps, hydraulic cylinder, valvs, orbitrol… in which the pressure and flow are the key to ensure the security and comfort.
