Gandhi Automation's dock levelers are designed for the most demanding loading and unloading operations.
Gandhi Automations offers complete logistics solutions by providing dock levelers, dock shelters, sectional overhead doors and dock houses.
Designed for power
Electro-hydraulic, mechanical and air-powered dock levelers offered by Gandhi Automations not only act as a bridge for the vehicle, but also facilitate fast, smooth and safe transition by compensating the difference in heights between the loading bay and the vehicle.
This contributes to minimising the amount of energy used, savings on heating and chilling costs, which results in maintenance of quality of the transported goods. Dock levelers offered by Gandhi Automations are designed as per EN 1398 standard for the most demanding loading and unloading operations.
Effortless and cost-effective
The cost of loading and unloading goods can be calculated precisely and is exactly definable, which allows for a scientific approach to find out the investment that goes into the process. Gandhi Automations has always designed solutions based on such a scientific approach and feedback from clients. The dock levelers offered by the company ensure loading and unloading with lesser effort and minimal cost. It is possible to load and unload products in a safe way, and in the process obtain remarkable energy savings. The loading bay remains with the dock leveler in rest position with the sectional overhead door closed until the vehicle is positioned. The driver drives back centring to the dock shelter and stops the vehicle the moment it comes in contact with the bumpers.
The sectional overhead door is then opened only when the vehicle is positioned, brakes applied and engines shut off. This eliminates any outlet for hot air and intake of cold air (vice versa when the indoors are air-conditioned), and intake of exhausting gases in the warehouse. After the sectional overhead door opens, the lip of the dock leveler connects to the truck bed for loading or unloading to occur.
At the end of the loading or unloading, the dock leveler is put in the rest position and the sectional overhead door is closed without moving the vehicle. The vehicle then departs at the end of the process.
Radius lip dock levelers
Radius lip dock levelers allow the dock to connect with the truck bed, thus making it possible to drive directly on and off with forklift trucks and so on. The self-cleaning lip hinging system does not retain rubbish with automatic end-of-run, so as to keep the 25 mm security distance between the folded lip and structure as per EN 1398 and EN 349.
Telescopic lip dock levelers
Telescopic lip dock levelers are ideal for connecting vehicles unable to drive near docks, ie sea containers, side loading railway wagons and so on. These types of levelers can be supplied with a lip extending up to 1 m.
Gandhi Automation's dock levelers are equipped with the most secure safety devices and accessories.
