Forklift Starter

Forklift Starters - A starter motors today is usually a permanent-magnet composition or a series-parallel wound direct current electrical motor along with a starter solenoid mounted on it. When current from the starting battery is applied to the solenoid, basically through a key-operated switch, the solenoid engages a lever which pushes out the drive pinion that is located on the driveshaft and meshes the pinion utilizing the starter ring gear that is found on the flywheel of the engine.

The solenoid closes the high-current contacts for the starter motor, that starts to turn. Once the engine starts, the key operated switch is opened and a spring in the solenoid assembly pulls the pinion gear away from the ring gear. This particular action causes the starter motor to stop. The starter's pinion is clutched to its driveshaft by an overrunning clutch. This allows the pinion to transmit drive in only one direction. Drive is transmitted in this particular way through the pinion to the flywheel ring gear. The pinion remains engaged, for example in view of the fact that the driver fails to release the key once the engine starts or if the solenoid remains engaged as there is a short. This actually causes the pinion to spin independently of its driveshaft.

This aforesaid action prevents the engine from driving the starter. This is an important step because this particular kind of back drive would enable the starter to spin very fast that it will fly apart. Unless modifications were done, the sprag clutch arrangement would preclude utilizing the starter as a generator if it was utilized in the hybrid scheme mentioned prior. Typically a standard starter motor is designed for intermittent utilization that will stop it being utilized as a generator.

The electrical components are made to operate for about 30 seconds in order to prevent overheating. Overheating is caused by a slow dissipation of heat is because of ohmic losses. The electrical parts are designed to save cost and weight. This is truly the reason nearly all owner's guidebooks utilized for vehicles suggest the driver to stop for at least ten seconds after each and every ten or fifteen seconds of cranking the engine, whenever trying to start an engine which does not turn over immediately.

The overrunning-clutch pinion was launched onto the marked during the early 1960's. Previous to the 1960's, a Bendix drive was used. This particular drive system operates on a helically cut driveshaft that has a starter drive pinion placed on it. When the starter motor starts spinning, the inertia of the drive pinion assembly allows it to ride forward on the helix, hence engaging with the ring gear. As soon as the engine starts, the backdrive caused from the ring gear allows the pinion to go beyond the rotating speed of the starter. At this point, the drive pinion is forced back down the helical shaft and therefore out of mesh with the ring gear.

In the 1930s, an intermediate development between the Bendix drive was developed. The overrunning-clutch design which was developed and launched in the 1960s was the Bendix Folo-Thru drive. The Folo-Thru drive has a latching mechanism together with a set of flyweights inside the body of the drive unit. This was a lot better because the typical Bendix drive used in order to disengage from the ring as soon as the engine fired, even though it did not stay running.

When the starter motor is engaged and starts turning, the drive unit is forced forward on the helical shaft by inertia. It then becomes latched into the engaged position. As soon as the drive unit is spun at a speed higher than what is achieved by the starter motor itself, for instance it is backdriven by the running engine, and afterward the flyweights pull outward in a radial manner. This releases the latch and enables the overdriven drive unit to become spun out of engagement, hence unwanted starter disengagement could be prevented before a successful engine start.
