Forklift Starters

Today's starter motor is normally a permanent-magnet composition or a series-parallel wound direct current electrical motor with a starter solenoid installed on it. As soon as current from the starting battery is applied to the solenoid, basically through a key-operated switch, the solenoid engages a lever that pushes out the drive pinion that is situated on the driveshaft and meshes the pinion with the starter ring gear which is found on the engine flywheel.

Once the starter motor starts to turn, the solenoid closes the high-current contacts. Once the engine has started, the solenoid consists of a key operated switch which opens the spring assembly to pull the pinion gear away from the ring gear. This 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 a single direction. Drive is transmitted in this way through the pinion to the flywheel ring gear. The pinion remains engaged, for example for the reason that the driver did not release the key as soon as the engine starts or if the solenoid remains engaged because there is a short. This causes the pinion to spin independently of its driveshaft.

The actions discussed above will stop the engine from driving the starter. This significant step prevents the starter from spinning really fast that it could fly apart. Unless adjustments were done, the sprag clutch arrangement would prevent the use of the starter as a generator if it was made use of in the hybrid scheme mentioned earlier. Typically a standard starter motor is meant for intermittent utilization that will stop it being utilized as a generator.

The electrical parts are made to function for approximately thirty seconds so as to avoid overheating. Overheating is caused by a slow dissipation of heat is due to ohmic losses. The electrical parts are intended to save cost and weight. This is the reason most owner's guidebooks intended for vehicles suggest the operator to stop for a minimum of ten seconds after every 10 or 15 seconds of cranking the engine, whenever trying to start an engine which does not turn over at once.

The overrunning-clutch pinion was launched onto the marked in the early 1960's. Prior to the 1960's, a Bendix drive was utilized. This drive system works on a helically cut driveshaft that has a starter drive pinion placed on it. When the starter motor starts turning, the inertia of the drive pinion assembly enables it to ride forward on the helix, thus engaging with the ring gear. As soon as the engine starts, the backdrive caused from the ring gear allows the pinion to surpass the rotating speed of the starter. At this point, the drive pinion is forced back down the helical shaft and hence out of mesh with the ring gear.

The development of Bendix drive was developed in the 1930's with the overrunning-clutch design known as the Bendix Folo-Thru drive, developed and launched in the 1960s. The Folo-Thru drive has a latching mechanism together with a set of flyweights within the body of the drive unit. This was a lot better because the standard Bendix drive used so as to disengage from the ring once the engine fired, even if it did not stay functioning.

The drive unit if force forward by inertia on the helical shaft as soon as the starter motor is engaged and starts turning. Then the starter motor becomes latched into the engaged position. As soon as the drive unit is spun at a speed higher than what is attained 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, thus unwanted starter disengagement could be avoided prior to a successful engine start.
