Shock tactics’ highlight the need to protect valuable goods from damage
Lamerholm Electronics will use ‘shock tactics’ at IMHX 2010 to raise awareness of its highly effective damage deterrent labels.
To highlight the importance of protecting valuable goods from shock during storage, handling and transit, the company is giving IMHX visitors the chance to win a pair of Casio G-Shock watches.
Delegates who visit Lamerholm at Stand 20B60 will be invited to enter a prize draw to win a men’s Casio G-Shock multi-function sports watch and women’s Casio Baby-G digital watch, with a combined value of more than £150.
The company is urging visitors to test out its range of easy-to-use ShockWatch labels, which are designed to indicate mishandling of packages.
The self-adhesive ShockWatch labels, available in a range of five sensitivity levels, are a highly cost-effective way to determine whether goods have been subjected to impact and therefore help to discourage mishandling. The delivery of damaged goods not only incurs additional costs in collection and re-delivery but can leave a long-term blemish on the reputation of the manufacturer.
ShockWatch labels are among several damage deterrent products that Lamerholm is presenting at IMHX 2010, taking place at Birmingham NEC from 16th to 19th November.
The Hertfordshire-based company will be demonstrating an array of labels capable of detecting dropping, unfavourable changes in temperature, tilting, as well as its more sophisticated ShockLog technology, which continually monitors the conditions in which high-value goods are stored, handled and transported.
Also on display will be the Impact Manager, which is attached to forklift trucks to monitor driver behaviour and limit access to qualified operators only. The device is aimed at helping reduce the thousands of accidents involving forklift trucks that occur in UK workplaces each year, which cause serious injuries and even death in some cases, as well as damaging goods, machinery and warehouse infrastructure.
