Safer and more efficient material handling operations

Our system for the prevention of accidents between forklifts and pedestrians and forklift-to-forklift collisions came out tops in the safety category with the readers of Plant Engineering Magazine, from whom it received the majority of votes. „This award is further confirmation that our safety and assistance systems for industrial vehicles are the up-to-the-minute solutions for the current challenges in the intralogistics sector“, said Bradley. ELOshield is radio-based, detects when personnel or other vehicles encroach the danger zone of a forklift truck and warns the driver accordingly, for significantly enhanced safety in the warehouse.

The Plant Engineering Product of the Year Award honours innovative products and solutions in the manufacturing sector.
