Everything you need to know about how leaf chain should be incorporated into telehandler design and why leaf chain assemblies can often be the best solution – simplifying the design, manufacture, and compliance stages for safety-critical materials handling applications.
Key design considerations
Leaf chain size, construction and materials have a direct impact on a chain’s strength and lifting capacity and are crucial in ensuring optimum performance, avoiding equipment damage and maintaining safety.
If the chain that controls a telehandler boom should fail or break during use, the consequences will be severe – with the potential for:
- damage to the vehicle
- damage to the load
- loss of production
- repair costs
- serious personal injury
So what are the factors a design engineer should consider when deciding on the right leaf chain, and leaf chain products, for a telehandler application?
On this page, we:
- outline the key features of leaf chain and its importance for telehandler boom design
- look at the characteristics of bespoke leaf chain assemblies
- explore the value they offer in terms of improved product design, increased safety and enhanced efficiency of manufacture.
