Gandhi Automations Pvt Ltd offers dock levelers to ensure easy loading and unloading of products
Since its inception in 1996, Gandhi Automations Pvt Ltd has been into manufacturing, importing, distributing and installing products that are problem-free and easy to operate. The company offers complete logistics solutions by providing dock levelers, dock shelters, sectional overhead doors and dock houses.
The importance of efficient loading has been true essentially for two reasons - the lesser availability and the higher cost of manpower. This results in lesser qualified manpower being utilised which in-turn leads to damage in the goods. The dock levelers offered by the company ensure loading and unloading with lesser effort and minimal cost. The loading bay remains with the dock leveler in rest position and the sectional overhead door closed, until the vehicle is positioned. The driver drives back centering to the dock shelter and stops the vehicle the moment it gets 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 the exit of hot air, intake of cold air (or the opposite in hot and inside conditioned places) and intake of exhausting gases in the warehouse. After the door opens, the lip of the dock leveler connects to the truck bed for loading or unloading. Later the leveler is put in rest position and the door is closed, without moving the vehicle.
Radius Lip Dock Levelers allow the dock to connect with the truck-bed, thus making it possible to drive directly on and off with fork-lift trucks, roll containers, etc. Telescopic Lip Dock Levelers are ideal for connecting vehicles that cannot travel to the dock (eg sea containers, side loading railway wagons, etc). These types can be supplied with a lip extending up to 1 m.
