Joysticks are an extension of the forklift driver's arm. They must therefore be intuitive, comfortable, and extremely sensitive to operate. These features contribute to both safety and efficiency. Linde Material forklifts allow for high-precision operation thanks to the perfect coordination of hardware and software as well as the interaction of multiple components. The start of this chain is the Linde joystick in original manufacturer quality.
Benefits of Joysticks in Linde Quality
Linde joysticks operate with a precise, linear, and defined electrical output signal that is monitored by the controller. This means that the relevant output signal is the same at the same actuation angle, regardless of the direction of movement of the joystick, i.e., raising/lowering or leaning the mast forward/back. The mast reaction is always proportional to the joystick's actuation angle, enabling intuitive operation and precisely predictable truck reaction and thereby ensuring safe as well as highly efficient operation.
Comfortable and Reliable
Linde joysticks have uniform response characteristics across all the forklift models. As the joystick does not have a "dead zone," the work hydraulics always react immediately to the displacement of the joystick, i.e., the joystick movement also controls the mast movement. Moreover, all joysticks have an identical maximum actuation angle. These characteristics mean that drivers can always rely on uniform joystick behavior. No time is needed to make adjustments when driving different forklift models and no damage is caused by unexpected machine reactions.
Additional Safety Features
Durable and Cost-effective
The benefits of original manufacturer parts are particularly pronounced with regard to service life and cost-effectiveness: The high-quality materials used for Linde joysticks mean that they are designed for about six million actuations. While original manufacturer quality spare parts are generally more expensive, the exponentially longer service life more than compensates for these costs.
