Intralogistics solutions: safety and assistance systems
For improved material handling safety with forklift trucks
The benefits of ELOKON's safety solutions include:
Instead of expensive structural measures or cumbersome aisle access controls, we use innovative, automated technology - such as the laser scanners in our ELOprotect system - to protect personnel in dangerous areas within narrow aisle warehouses.
Our material handling fleet management systems, such as ELOfleet, use access control measures to ensure that only authorised drivers and those with valid licences can use designated equipment. Shock sensors also ensure that excessively rough use of forklift trucks is recorded and reported.
With a forklift fleet management system such as ELOfleet, you can monitor up to four operating signals from all vehicles - no matter what type or brand - and analyse a uniform set of data. The productivity of individual vehicles or groups of vehicles can therefore be quickly and efficiently compared, revealing targets for productivity improvement.
Our radar-based ELOspeed driver-assistance system regulates the speeds of material handling equipment according to its location - indoors or outdoors. It allows vehicles to work at top speed when outdoors, but slows them down as they come inside, to ensure safe, low travelling speeds for all indoor operation. And all this is done automatically!
Our radio-based driver-assistance systems, such as ELOshield, help prevent accidents between forklifts and pedestrians as well as collisions between forklifts. If a forklift gets too close to a person or object, it automatically slows down and signals a warning.
Using the latest RFID technology, our systems improve safety at busy factory and warehouse interscetions. By pre-emptively alerting pedestrians and drivers to approaching vehicles - and, at the same time, automatically slowing the vehicles down to walking speed - the risk of a collision in risky high-traffic areas can be significantly reduced.
Some governments mandate safety measures where industrial trucks and pedestrians work in close proximity, such as in narrow-aisle warehouses (e.g. regulation DIN 15185-2 on industrial truck safety). In some cases, companies also have liability insurance requirements (e.g. regulation BGV D27 for industrial trucks). Our safety solutions make it easy to comply with the latest regulations and minimise the risk of accidents, particularly in narrow-aisle environments.
