AUTOMATIC TRUCK BLOCKAGE SYSTEM
The K-AUTOBLOCK is an automatic truck blockage system. It was conceived to reinforce people’s safety by limiting risks of accidents that generally occur during transshipment operations.
The K-AUTOBLOCK allows the operator to block the vehicle at dock before the transshipment begins, and to release the vehicle once the transshipment is complete by simply pressing
push buttons on the control cabinet.
A signalization system by two-tone lights (for the driver) and by LED lights (for the operator) enables a simplifed usage for each participant.
A TIDY AND CONTROLLED PRODUCTION
The K-AUTOBLOCK is divided in three parts: hydraulic, electromechanical and mechanical.
Each part goes through individual supervisory measures. For example: the electromechanical part is controlled by specialized software with a control screen which checks each cycle.
At the end of the assembly process, each K-AUTOBLOCK is controlled and tested, then stored in transport racks.
• The K-AUTOBLOCK automatically releases the vehicle, even if the wheel is maintaining
pressure on the wheel-stop cylinder.
• If, during transshipment, the vehicles brakes are out of service (technical problem or brakes released), once the operator chooses to release the truck, the K-AUTOBLOCK automatically detects the vehicles progress and will not let it go (until it is correctly braked).
• The drivers do not require any instructions for the docking procedure.
