  • Automatic Inductive Guidance System for Forklifts uses CANopen
    of this application is safety for the driver and the vehicle through an automatic self-test of the guidance system. With a resolution of up to ±0.04", the inductive guidance system is the ideal high accuracy solution for forklifts operating within narrow aisles. Unlike systems with selective guide information
  • Wireless Forklift Terminals that enable Real-time Work Instructions
    The adopted wireless LAN allows forklift operators to receive work instructions from the base station and give completion reports to it while in transit, significantly increasing the work efficiency.

There are other issues to be considered here, such as not having proper separation between pedestrians and forklifts, but that is for another column
  • Solar Mirror Assembly Lift with Fixture Clamps
    Autoquip recommended a high capacity scissor lift with a custom design fixture clamp on the lift platform for positioning and locking the pallets in place. The forklift operator will be able to load the pallet onto the platform and with a remote operation the fixture clamp will align and lock
  • Case Study: "Double Stack" Material Master Bulk Bag Conditioner (.pdf)
    with traditional means. Operators utilized baseball bats and forklifts in an effort to break up the material so it would discharge from the bulk bags, which created both a safety concern and an operational bottleneck.
