SWING LIP DOCK LEVELLERS: INSTALLATION WITH ACCESSORIES

Electrohydraulic dock levellers with swing lip, strong and lasting, these loading bay dock levellers allow to load the vehicles in the most safe system. Pit height of only 550 mm. Installation with simple accessories in a traditional pit. Continuous head hinging, anti-wind.

The dock leveller, connected to a vehicle truck-bed is “an inert bridge” that follows the vertical movements of the vehicle during the loading. The leveller in rest position has a safe support and in this position it can be crossed at full load.

The functioning cycle is grant by a single button command (dead man), with the following sequence:

  • depressed button: the leveller raises until maximum lift where the lip swivels outside
  • at extended lip, release the button and the leveller gently lowers to contact with the truck bed
  • the loading is made
  • for the return to rest-position – to be made before the departure of the vehicle – depress the button and release ti with the closed lip, before the maximum lift (that starts again the swivelling out of the lip), the leveller gently lowers to the rest position.

NOTE: Campisa swivelling lip dock levellers have a double-effect lip cylinder, that grants the return to zero position and its entrance into the two rest position blocks, without any greasing or maintenance. The lip has self-cleaning hinges, that do not retain fragments of wooden pallets and dirtiness.

Connectable difference of level
Maximum slope of 12,5% as per EN 1398 Norm (ant slipperi slope). The fork lift trucks normally overtake 8% slope, the handpallets 4%, so reduce the slope to work better.
Maximum lift above dock, about 350 mm
Maximum lowering below dock level about 300 mm
Torsionality, adapting to the side inclination of the vehicles of 3% as per EN 1398

LIP

Swing opening
Of almond steel, high resistance, 12 + 2 mm, tapered at the extremity front rim
Length 360 mm, in overhang of 360 mm from the rim of the dock

PLATFORM

Of almond steel 6 + 2 mm ant-slippery and self-draining.
Supported by support beams of high tensile steel in the sense of length
Head hinge continuous for the whole width, ant-wind, with rounded connection in all slopes, without risk of harming the trucck wheels.

FINISHING

Of almond steel 6 + 2 mm ant-slippery and self-draining.
Supported by support beams of high tensile steel in the sense of length
Head hinge continuous for the whole width, ant-wind, with rounded connection in all slopes, without risk of harming the trucck wheels.

FUNCTIONING

Lift with one hydraulic cylinder 60 mm diameter.
Opening and closure of the lip by an hydraulic cylinder double effect, that grants for the safe return to rest position of the leveller
Command box protection IP 56, with door-safety-switch with emergency stop function (if supplied). Ant. flame wirings

INSTALLATION

The installation of the leveller is made with simple welding (to be made from the outside of the leveller) of the three head hinges, of the front bar, and expansion bolts for the cylinder flange on the base of the pit. Pit as per indications on the dedicated Technical Sheet.

HANDLING

Shipment height from mm 150 to 550 depending from the types
Handling with crane or fork lift
Possibility of handling the leveller with side entrance of the forks, or front entrance, into the lip.

For levellers 2000 mm wide, option of 2 side automatic flaps, 180 mm wide both side, for the connection of reduced truckbeds)
Option lip 430 mm, protruded by 430 mm from the pit rim at extended lip.
Option of 2 lift-cilinders.
Option side ant-wind seals

Dock levellers built in conformity to the product Norm EN 1398.
Complete with CE marking

In conformity to the provisions of the Norm EN 1398 the levellers have:

  • automatic safety valve on the descent of the levellers, in case of accidental departure of the vehicle
  • blocking electrovalve commanded by the door switch
  • foot guards both sides
  • maximum pressure valve
  • ant-slippery and self-draining surface almond sheet
  • minimum 25 mm horizontal or vertical between lip and rest bar
  • positive blocking system for maintenance
  • anti-wind head hinge, smooth in all the inclinations

The standard nominal load of the dock levellers is of 6.000 kg (10.000 kg uniformly distributed, but this is not the scope of the dock levellers), optional 9.000 kg (15.000 kg uniformly distributed).
