Material handling safety solutions
Proximity detection and fully automatic systems to improve lift truck-pedestrian safety
Despite efforts to make material handling safer, lift truck accidents still cause too many injuries - and fatalities. Forklift accidents also result in costly damage - to goods and facilities as well as to the trucks themselves. And forklift accidents mean equipment downtime, too, which decreases material handling productivity. At ELOKON, we develop and deploy systems that improve lift truck safety. For everyone who works on and around your material handling equipment. And by making your lift trucks safer, we also improve their efficiency and productivity.
Benefits of ELOKON material handling safety solutions include:
Instead of expensive facility infrastructure or cumbersome aisle access controls, our ELOprotect system uses innovative, automated technology—including state-of-the-art laser scanners—to protect personnel in the narrow confines of VNA warehouses.
Our intelligent, radio-based ELOshield driver-assistance system helps prevent vehicle accidents. For every scenario: vehicle-to-pedestrian, vehicle-to-object, and vehicle-to-vehicle. If a vehicle gets too close to a person or object, it automatically slows down and signals a warning to the driver.
Our app-based ELOfleet forklift fleet management system provides access control to ensure only trained, authorized drivers can use equipment. App-managed safety checklists alert maintenance to any equipment problems. And advanced-technology MEMS shock sensors record and report excessive forklift impacts.
Our radar-based ELOspeed driver-assistance system regulates the speed of material handling equipment based on location—indoors or out. It allows vehicles to work at top speed outdoors, but slows them down as they come inside, to ensure safe indoor operation. And it’s all automatic.
Some governments mandate safety measures for industrial trucks, especially where they work closely with pedestrians, as in VNA warehouses. Some companies also have liability insurance requirements relating to industrial trucks. Our automated safety solutions make it easy to comply with such regulations and minimize the risk of accidents, particularly in VNA environments.
With our app-based ELOfleet forklift management system, you can record consistent data points across all vehicle types and brands. This uniform analysis enables a meaningful comparison of individual vehicles and work groups to identify specific targets for improved productivity.
Using the latest RFID technology, our systems improve forklift safety at aisle intersections in manufacturing plants, warehouses and distribution centers. Our technology pre-emptively alerts pedestrians and forklift drivers to approaching vehicles, and automatically slows vehicles down to reduce the risk of collisions.
