Bintzler Incorporated has a line of material
handling equipment which came about more out of need than anything
else. We were asked by different fork truck distributors to look
into solving certain needs they had. Some of those needs were special fork extensions,
mast modification, mast repair, special carts, and trucks for
When specials are required, our
engineering staff works closely with the truck manufacturer to
ensure that any modification gets their stamp of approval.
Belt conveyors, roller
conveyor (both powered and gravity type) as well as any similar
products are manufactured to suit. Most facilities do not fit into
a "cookie cutter" situation. That means that if a
standard item is purchased, most cases it needs to be modified.
Therefore, the discount you thought you got ends up costing more
are fabricated using structural steel channel. This gives
them a better resistance to bending than their formed
counterparts. There is a 1/2" x 1-1/2" flat bar
strap welded to the channel to wrap behind the fork heel.
Extensions made this way cannot slide off the fork as some
others do. The nose is tapered in two dimensions for ease
of insertion into or under the load.
Osha requires the extension be no more than 1-1/2 times
the fork length.
such as the ones pictured can be made to fit the
particular load to be carried. as well as any weight.
Caster brakes, floor jacks, urethane wheels to steel
wheels. Whatever the need. They can also be made to run on
an imbedded track in the floor.
catwalks, mezzanines are all custom manufactured to suit
the particular location and purpose. Platforms and
catwalks can be made as free standing as the unit
pictured, or as an attached unit for a piece of machinery.
conveyor can be supplied in any configuration. Whether for
automatic parts feeding, or to move material from one
place to another. They can also be supplied to be
adjustable where the pitch is changed, but the footprint
stays the same. As well as either gravity fed, or powered
rollers. The possibilities are limitless.
engineering staff will work closely with you and the
equipment manufacturer to be sure that you get what you
want, and it has the manufacturer's approval. This example
shown was one of many folding seats which when folded down
created a flat platform with which to load cargo. When
raised, the seats allowed for personnel transport.
