Load up to 4000 Kg (8820 Lb)

Like every product from the LHD Group: this Load Handling Device has been designed by the LHD Engineering team and assembled by the LHD Manufacturing Team.

It’s a peculiar type of telescopic fork since its high moment of inertia totally lies in its thickness rather than in its width. It’s specifically designed to pass through particularly narrow openings, although it can handle notably heavy loads. This equipment is made of special materials and innovative solutions have been employed for its development. It’s mainly used in the paper industry to handle big paper coils, or in precision, industries to automatically feed e.g. laser cutting or bending machines, or to handle chipboards and the like. Notably low bending and long life cycle are its strong points.

This equipment is the ultimate solution for purposes other forks are not fit for, and it offers remarkable performances for speed and acceleration. It’s only available with the pinions and racks system.

The ATHENA series can be produced also in notably bigger sizes, nevertheless, it’s part of the custom-built production and its feasibility has to be established along with LHD’s technical staff.

All LHD Group’s telescopic forks undergo accurate run tests and quality checks before delivery.
