Safety for MH and production. Be smart, be safe – with ELOKON.

The safer way to more productivity
in intralogistics, automation and machinery operation

During the English "National Forklift Safety Month" in October 2019 we will also be focusing on the vital importance of safety for people, industrial vehicles and equipment. The UK industry body the FLTA (Fork Lift Truck Association) is spearheading this campaign and is working closely with its members, other associations and partners. These include the UKWA and BITA and the initiative is also supported by the UK’s leading intralogistics show IMHX.

The guiding principle of the 2019 campaign is as follows: Forklift safety. It’s no accident.

Forklift Safety. It's no accident.

Safety products for industrial vehicles

The increasing use of robots and automated guided vehicles (AGVs) also increases the risk of accidents for people working in the warehouse and in manufacturing facilities and plants. Our safety products, based on the latest technologies such as RFID, radar and lidar, can be installed or retrofitted for all types of industrial vehicles and brands. Our LEAD with Safety Strategy guarantees that our products - which have received national and international awards - meet the highest quality standards through the innovative use of technology.

ELOshield: forklift driver-assistance technology helps avoid collisions

Keeping workers safe around industrial trucks is a challenge. ELOshield is an innovative accident avoidance system for forklifts — and a 2018 Innovation Award winner and “Product of the Year.”

Using UWB technology, ELOshield automatically detects when a person (or another vehicle) enters “warning” and “protection” zones around lift trucks. Then it automatically alerts both the driver and pedestrians with visual, audible, and vibration signals.

ELOshield also improves safety for industrial workplaces

Whenever employees are involved in the operation of industrial machinery and plants, there is a risk of accidents, therefore it is vital to ensure safe working conditions in these areas.

The assistance system ELOshield ensures optimum safety in industrial workplaces by automatically detecting a person’s presence in a defined high-risk area in close proximity to a machine. The system can actively intervene in the machine‘s control systems to prevent dangerous movements and the person at risk is also alerted by acoustic and vibrating alarms.
