With the new T429C multi-pallet handler, the T458B roll clamp and the T180CT telescopic fork all being unveiled to the public for the first time at CeMAT 2016, Kaup is truly living up to its slogan - offering more and more "helping hands for your forklift truck". Exhibiting at a stand covering over 700 m² in the "Move & Lift" section, the Aschaffenburg-based mechanical engineering company also has several other innovations and prototypes on show. "We see CeMAT as the world's leading trade fair for our industry," explains Holger Kaup, Managing Director of Kaup GmbH & Co. KG. "That's why we've decided to launch our new products here."
The recently developed T429C double-pallet handler is set to win fans with a whole range of pioneering innovations. "We've made substantial improvements in three key areas," says Kaup. "Firstly, we have boosted visibility through the attachment. We have also drastically reduced the lost load center, and this has allowed us to increase the residual capacity significantly as a result." Kaup has also completely redesigned the T458 range of rotating roll clamps, now to be marketed as T458B. For instance, Kaup engineers have optimized the clamping arm kinematics by repositioning the pivot points of the clamp arms. This makes the arm contour of the T458B significantly thinner, and the clamping force can be more equally distributed across the rolls being handled. The third innovation is the T180CT telescopic fork, which is now equipped with hydraulic synchronism in line with market requirements. What’s more, a smaller width is also available in the starting tonnage (two metric tons), allowing double-depth handling for pallets with entry dimensions smaller than Euro-pallets.
