Description

Technial Field



[0001] The invention relates to an octagonal telescopic extensible container carrier vehicle for transporting containers.

[0002] In particular, the invention relates to an octagonal telescopic container carrier with a telescopic construction that prevents damage to the construction of the vehicle against torsional forces resulting from the rigid maneuvers of the vehicle, which can be extended and shortened by the movement of one or more nested frames.

The Current Status of the Technique



[0003] In the current situation, thanks to the telescopic adjustable container vehicles structure, it complies with all container types conforming to ISO 668 norms. Container vehicles with extensible construction are produced as front, middle and rear extensible in accordance with customer demands. Thanks to the the construction, telescopic container carrier vehicles can meet the needs of more than one container chassis vehicle. In contrast to the benefits of all this functionality, there are disadvantages of this construction.

[0004] When we analyze the existing constructions, it is seen that the chassis sections are the same. Telescopic sections of all competing companies are produced in quadrangular form. In rectangular construction, crosses are welded on untwisted flat surfaces. Torsional force resulting from the hard maneuvering of the vehicle that is offered to the customer after the welding process is applied to the welded flat area on the quadrant. Such forces cause weld failures and after sales complaints. At the same time, the low number of twists on the welded surface increases the weld deformation. Deformation after heat causes visual problems during and after production.

[0005] Another disadvantage of the telescopic structure is hard maneuvers made by the driver during the transportation of high tonnages. Such maneuvers deform the rectangular chassis section. As a result of the deformation, the distortion in the inner and outer frame structure causes the front-extensible, middle-extensible and rear-extensible platform assembly to be compressed. Vehicle to be adjusted according to the load after the jam cannot perform its functionality.

[0006] Another effect of the rigid maneuvers on the vehicle is the torsional force on the chassis when the rigid maneuver is performed. Four points of telescopic quadrangular contact with each other affect the point force with torsion. Correction of deformations caused by this kind of driver error is difficult and costly. After the field visits, it was seen that the quadrangular structure of the telescopic container vehicles broke down in a short time and the drivers tried to make the deformed telescopic structure usable by searching the flat surfaces. For the purpose of reducing all this deformation, high-alloyed sheet materials are used in functional telescopic vehicles. Because of the narrow angle of the rectangular geometry, these materials are stretching back after forming. There are also problems in the mounting of nesting frames after stretching back.

[0007] Examples of adjustable containers are GB2255054 and the United Kingdom patent document entitled "Adjustable Container Tools". The current invention includes chassis members 18, 19 with cross members 20, 20A, 25, 26, 27, 21 having movable cylinders 32, 34 in cavities 18, 19. The fixed element 21 carries the twist locks 23. Elements 25, 26 form part of structure 24 which is movable by arm 35 by a rear position in which the rear cap 40 can be held by the locks on the elements 25, 26 and the front housing can be held by the locks (27, 21) and have a forward position in which a container (25, 26) is supported. This is mentioned to as providing a convenient positioning of the container in the forward position. However, there is no mention of an octagonal telescopic extensible container carrier with telescopic construction, which prevents the damage of the vehicle construction against torsional force, which can be extended and shortened by the movement of one or more nested frames.

[0008] Consequently, the existence of the need for an octagonal telescopic extensible container carrier vehicle and the insufficiency of existing solutions necessitated an improvement in the relevant technical field.

The Purpose Of The Invention



[0009] The current invention relates to an octagonal telescopic extensible container carrier which meets the above mentioned requirements, eliminates potential disadvantages and provides additional advantages.

[0010] The main object of the octagonal telescopic extensible container carrier means; deformation caused by welding heat is minimized and damage to the vehicle construction is prevented. Thanks to the advantages gained by the octagonal structure, the number of twists is doubled and the damage of the vehicle construction is prevented. By preventing the deformation caused by welding heat, it is possible to visually improve the vehicle by eliminating the defects of the finished vehicle during the telescopic installation. The design of the crosses on the chassis according to the octagonal form gives the advantage of welding. In contrast to the quadrangular condition, after the torsion the weld cracking problems are eliminated and the torsion welding and brackets are evenly distributed to eliminate the shear force on the weld. All these welded production gains increase the quality of the vehicle and reduce the labor time.

[0011] Another object of the invention is the torsion force caused by the rigid driving maneuvers during the transportation of high tonnages and the telescopic vehicles increased the doubling of the number of twists in octagonal structure and doubled the strength. The torsional force generated by the rigid driving maneuvers installed on the chassis is doubled by doubling the contact point in the octagonal structure the point force is reduced to half and the strength of the vehicle is doubled. The geometric angles of the new construction are larger than the rectangle, thus facilitating the forming process of high-strength steels, reducing the streching back rate. Geometrically, the low surface area of the octagonal structure according to the rectangular structure reduces the cost of high-strength steel use. The high cost of high-alloyed steel makes it possible to achieve cost savings.

[0012] The above-mentioned objectives can be extended and shortened by the movement of one or more nested frames to attain their most general state, the rigid maneuvers of the vehicle with the rigid maneuvers against the torsion force of the vehicle construction to prevent damage to the telescopic construction, is an octagonal telescopic extensible container carrier vehicle, the telescopic chassis, which contains all the components and consoles forming the main skeleton of the octagonal telescopic extensible carrier, is the middle extensible platform assembly forming the middle region of the octagonal telescopic extensibe carrier which can be extended by the telescopic chassis to be carried by the telescopic chassis, rear extensible platform assembly forming the rear region of the octagonal telescopic extensible carrier, which can be extended by the telescopic chassis to extend the load, it comprises an octagonal cross section which is positioned at the front and/or back side of the telescopic chassis, which enables the connection of the middle extensible platform assembly and/or rear extensible platform assembly.

[0013] The structural and characteristic features and all advantages of the invention will be understood more clearly by the following figures and the detailed description made by making reference to such figures, and therefore the evaluation should be made in view of these figures and the detailed description.
