Original Press Release:
RAVAS USA Introduces iForks, the New Generation Scale Forks for Forklift Trucks
RAVAS USA, The Mobile Scale Company, introduces iForks, the first completely wireless scale forks for forklift trucks, reach trucks and narrow aisle trucks. Since all components are fully integrated in the forks, the iForks have no external cabling whatsoever and the weighing system can be installed onto any forklift truck in a matter of minutes: plug & weigh! From that moment on, every load lifted by the truck is instantly and accurately weighed.
Each scale fork communicates the weight lifted with the weight indicator in the cabin via Bluetooth. The weighing system is powered by robust, exchangeable battery modules. All electronics and power components are exclusively developed by RAVAS for the iForks concept. Which is why they are not only resistant to rough use, but also extremely compact, keeping the fork dimensions (wxh = 5.2x2.1 inch) very close to those of standard lift truck forks and making sure that the user does not lose any handling performance.
The iForks weight indicator in the cabin shows the weight of the load on the forks and offers a complete range of weighing functions: gross/net weighing, total weight per shipment, code entry, date/time registration, and piece counting. The indicator can provide weight data transfer to a printer, a data terminal, or directly to a WMS or ERP system, via RS232, Bluetooth or WiFi. The display is equipped with backlight, making it perfectly readable even in the darkest corners of a warehouse or production environment. iForks offers Digital Calibration Technology: via the keys of the indicator the scale can be digitally adjusted, quickly and accurately. Which makes for a very maintenance friendly weighing system and low cost of ownership.
The user can supervise the power management of the iForks himself. The weighing system has an auto-shut-off function which automatically switches off the electronics after a prolonged period of non-use. Via a power management menu on the indicator the user can adjust the auto-shut-off time according to the use and application of the truck.
RAVAS develops, produces and distributes mobile weighing systems for forklift trucks, warehouse trucks and hand pallet trucks. Mobile weighing systems improve the efficiency of a company's internal logistics and realize immediate cost savings. Want to know more? Go to ravasusa.com or contact:
