iForks with RFID and load moment monitoring system for reach trucks from RAVAS at CeMAT

Thanks to its innovative approach, RAVAS has been market leader in mobile weighing for over 20 years. This drive for innovation is evident from RAVAS’ product presentations at the CeMat 2011: connectivity, integration of mobile weighing and RFID, and m-Forks, the first forks for counterbalanced trucks and reach trucks that do not only measure the weight of the load, but also the position of its centre of gravity.

iForks with integrated RFID: weighing and identifying at the same time
RAVAS has developed a version of iForks with an RFID reader integrated in the scale forks. This iForks version measures the weight of the pallet lifted and at the same time reads the ID-code in the pallet tag. It sends this combined information direct from the forklift to a WMS or ERP system. The ideal tool for efficient goods reception.

M-Forks: load moment monitoring for counterbalanced trucks and reach trucks
As a protection against breaking forks or overturning trucks caused by overload, RAVAS has developed the m-Forks. The m-Forks are fitted with a load moment monitoring system. The forks measure the moment force of the load: both the weight and the position of its centre of gravity are taken into account. A revolutionary product that contributes to user safety around forklifts and reach trucks. The m-Forks have standard fork dimensions. RAVAS has applied for a patent on its m-Forks.

RAVAS-Pro series: accuracy, versatility and connectivity in a single product
Two important characteristics of the RAVAS-2100 and RAVAS-6100 Pro versions are a high weighing accuracy and a high performance battery solution. Of course connectivity via RS, Bluetooth, LAN or WLAN is a standard option.

Both the RAVAS-2100 Pro and RAVAS-6100 Pro were developed for high end industrial applications, for example in food or pharma. The RAVAS-6100 Pro has a programmable scale terminal, that can also be supplied with a touch screen. Both systems have a multirange display graduation that starts off with 100g steps. The professional battery solution can power both 12V and 24V scale terminals. The pallet truck is supplied in epoxy painted or stainless steel version.

This year’s CeMAT has the theme: Sustainability in intralogistics. The show is staged in Hannover, Germany and runs from 2 to 6 May. RAVAS can be found in hall 26, stand D15.
