Autonomous handling sets

Set of hydraulic supports ZPH.20-A2

Set of hydraulic supports type ZPH.20-A2 is a reusable device, designed to self-reloading (self-loading or self-unloading) of special 20-foot containers of total weight up to 16,0 t.

Set of hydraulic supports ZPH.20-A2 is a stand-alone system of the container, fully integrated structurally and functionally with the container. This set consists of four hydraulic servomotors - pivotally mounted on supporting pillars in the corners of the container, the hydraulic installation, and the hydraulic system - built in the hydraulic module, and batteries and control unit – built in the electric power module of the container. Each of the functional units forming a part of the set is a compact and closed structure - built-up inside the container, susceptible to operation and repair.

While operating, the set gets electricity from the container installation. Folding and unfolding of the hydraulic servomotors is done manually by two members of container staff – with the assistance of gas springs. The set is controlled remotely, semi-automatically, at a safe distance from the container - using remote control desktop, there is a possibility of using additional manual control - with the use of the control board in the hydraulics and battery module.

The applied solution of set of hydraulic supports allows for its use in self-reloading of the container in the area, where the difficult terrain does not allow for use of external handling equipment (cranes, forklifts, etc.) or they are currently not available. This solution also allows for enhanced containers’ mobility without involving additional means of transport and manpower, as well as in case of rapid evacuation in emergency situations.

Set of hydraulic supports ZPH.20-A2 is capable for operation when the vehicle is stationary with the transported container.

Using the set as intended and complying with the rigors of technical support is a guarantee of its long-term and reliable operation.
