The main profile of our company is the machining and forming of various metals and plastics. As a by-product of this activity, a significant amount of recyclable waste, chip occurs, the management of which is rather difficult over a certain volume. In easier cases, the chip removed from the machine is collected in the granaries with rollers received as a factory accessory to our machining centres, and the chip is then easily transportable by the operators to the chip storage; however, the emptying of the granary is difficult and can only be resolved by shoveling. In case of our traditional machines, we used granaries without wheels, even for the mere moving of which we needed a forklift truck. For these reasons, our engineers have developed a device that facilitates the emptying process of the specially shaped granaries manufactured by us. The official technical inspection, licensing and localization of our device was performed by the experts of Szent István University in Gödöllő. Registration of the industrial protection of the device is in progress.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The structure indicated in the below animation is slidable to the forks of the forklift truck, and then they can be attached to the forklift truck by the pins. The side grips of the granary manufactured by us are slidable into the structure, while the fixation is provided by a hook equipped with a spring. The granary-moving cylinders use the hydraulic systems of the fork trucks. It is possible to operate the device from the cabin, by connecting it to the hydraulic quick connector located on the forklift truck.

IT CAN BE USED WITH THE FOLLOWING TYPE OF GRANARIES:
The device can be used in combination with the chip-storing granaries manufactured by us and shown in the below picture, which can be purchased also independently from the device. Of course, the granaries are equipped with industrial grips and wheels rotating to 360° around the horizontal and vertical axis, in order to ensure easy handling, furthermore, they also have a tap to drain any potential liquids. Although the development of the structure was primarily induced by the difficult operability of the chips, of course, anything can be stored in the granaries. On demand, we can produce the granary with other design, too. Of course, the chip-storing granary can be purchased also separately and it can be used also without the device!
