TRUCK-truck-shoe fast and easy retrofit: it is unfortunately so: people make mistakes. Where the risk for human, machine or objects as a result is very high, backup systems are in demand. Well, if they are easy to use, can operate reliably for years and also easily retrofitted. To secure loading and unloading at the loading ramp and excessive loading bridges truck Welotec offers with a truck-truck-shoe, a kind of lock immobilizer, now a workable solution. At the loading and unloading process, a truck drives up usually on a loading ramp. The roll-up door is opened. Usually, a forklift driver then loads the truck.

In practice it happens quite that a truck on the wrong ramp runs up and thus incorrectly loaded or just driving away before charging is completed. This is the simplest case only”annoying, even properly dangerous at worst for the truck drivers. Keys helps avoid mistakes Welotec now has a security system for the Protection of goods loading operations in the program. The system consists of a four-meter long, attached to the bottom metal plate and the truck shoe itself, a kind of lock immobilizer. Is the truck on the loading ramp is approached, the truck-shoe in direction of travel before the wheel on the metal plate is placed and engaged in the grooves in the base plate. After flipping a lever, the wheel of the truck is blocked.

Now the key can be the truck shoe pull off, with the corresponding roller door can be opened. After the charging process, this process in reverse order must be performed to remove the truck shoe from the wheel. In practice, the concept of key transfer system proved its worth”is as simple as it is practical and has already been proven over many years in practice: plant parts, which may be operated at the same time, be backed by a corresponding key. Only if the key in the respective unit is inserted, the unit is active. Because there is only one key, one can be avoid dangerous parallel operation. Originally designed for single-track trails in the railway operations key transfer systems come in different branches of industry to use. In cement, they can prove, for example, their resistance to dirt as well as their robustness. Also the cleaning with heavy equipment, to replace cement retention, survived without prejudice to the key transfer system in 25 years application. Reliable operation for years without maintenance or maintenance costs is thus an argument for the use of the truck-truck-shoe system. Another is certainly the easy installation. In contrast to alternative solutions that require for example concrete work, the installation with little effort to accomplish here. It must be fixed only the metal plate at the bottom. Thus, also the cost of the solution within limits hold for the user. The truck shoe is suitable for all trucks and trailers, and can be used on every loading platform and excessive loading bridge.
