At the upcoming IMHX 2016 - which takes place at Birmingham's NEC on 13th-16th September - RDS Technology will be exhibiting on stand 11P25 its range of on-board weighing systems for fork lift trucks, the Liftalert, Liftlog 100+ and the new Liftlog 1000.
These systems offer load monitoring and weighing functions with an internal alarm to warn when load threshold is approached and at the overload point. The Liftlog products on show also offer a totalising feature, making it ideal for applications where multiple pallets are to be check-weighed or loading storage systems where weight limits are to be adhered to.
Negating the need to travel to a floor-mounted platform scale often sited in a remote part of the warehouse, the Liftlog range provides a time-efficient means of check weighing.
A hydraulic load sensor is used to measure the increase in system pressure and the Liftlog unit displays the weight to the operator. Also included is an overload alarm that will sound when the overload threshold is approached and at the overload point to further inform the operator of load status. This helps the driver to avoid potential tip-over, increasing the safety of the forklift and surrounding warehouse.
The new Liftlog 1000 is the latest product in the Liftlog range, offering +/-0.5% accuracy for fork lift trucks operating in the fastest loading environments.
It is a cost-effective weighing instrument that reduces loading cycle times and maximises tons per hour performance.
