The new Bolzoni Auramo Force-Matic generation 4, is an innovative, fully automatic mechanical, pressure control system designed specifically for clamp equipped forklifts. Mainly is Force-Matic an effective system designed to prevent over clamping when handling paper rolls but can also be used with other clamps.
Force-Matic optimizes clamping force with preset clamping factor by adjusting the clamping force according to the load weight. The valve works basically as a mechanical calculator which continuously adjusts the clamping pressure as a function of load weight.
Installation and adjustments are quite straightforward and can be done using normal tools. Force-Matic main features:
Effective pressure control device.
Prevent paper roll deformation by adjusting the clamping pressure according to the roll's weight.
Fully mechanical, no electrical connections required.
Heavy duty aluminum construction.
Built around standard hydraulic components for easy service.
Wide adjustability range to be used to most truck-clamp combinations.
Can be installed on Bolzoni Auramo clamps (Consult Bolzoni for information).
Easy installation and minimum maintenance.
Unique with Force-Matic is that it works with two separate hydraulic circuits.
Circuit 1 measures hydraulic force in lift mast cylinder and calculates roll weight.
Circuit 2 regulates clamping force automatically with input from circuit 1.
These two hydraulic circuits are connected mechanically with link shown in picture on the right. This link can be adjusted to give the right balance between load weight and optimal clamping force.
With two separate hydraulic circuits Force-Matic will be able to have a wide operation range. From low initial clamping force up to max required clamping force with high stability. In addition this new system gives good speed of operation of the paper roll clamp.
Our goal is to have a clamp fitted with Force-Matic which shall be operator friendly and operate like standard clamp!
