In the year 1993, with the invention of the unique Shaft Guide System for multiple pallet handlers, combining for the first time an optimum of operational visibility, safe working conditions, lowest life cycle cost with a high level of efficiency and reliability, MEYER already at that time anticipated trends in the forklift truck industry that are today’s expectations in full maintenance operations.
The idea to introduce hard chromed and precision machined shafts in combination with encapsulated high-performance bushings instead of an open profile system assures advantages, which only such an encapsulated guidance system can:
Excellent operation speed for highest turnover rate
Optimum smooth running, highly synchronisation of fork travel
Robust Shaft Guide Concept: no sagging of the outer forks, permanently safe transport
High energy efficiency for extended operation cycles of electric forklift trucks
