Approximate calculation of the forklift’s residual loading bearing capacity after attaching the OKTOPUS® GI-B vacuum lifting devices.

Obtain the load bearing capacity Qst and the load centre LSP from the forklift handbook or request the values from the forklift manufacturer. The values X and Y are to be determined through measuring.

Please note: This form approximately determines the residual load bearing capacity remaining to your forklift for lifting sandwich panels after attaching the OKTOPUS® GI-B. A reduction in load bearing capacity e.g. at high lifting heights, is not taken into consideration here. A binding residual load bearing capacity and a stability check for the forklift/ OKTOPUS® combination can only be carried out by the manufacturer of your forklift.
