The Transmon ACAS system would have possibly prevented this.
ACAS = Active Collision Avoidance System.
I am not sure if I can post the promo video on here but if you want to see the video please email me at Transmon.
It's the perfect storm. Big forklift not normally used in a warehouse, he accelerates by mistake in reverse, doesn't brake so we have impact and a ramming impact, hits the weakest point in the warehouse the frame holding up the tunnel aisle. Because he is ramming the rack he takes out at least two frames causing the rack above to buckle at mid point. This causes the top part to bend out onto the rack opposite. The opposite rack beams become overloaded and are being dragged out and forward so they in turn buckle their frames. This causes both sides of the aisle to collapse into the aisle. This whole thing is ultra unusual. Rack normally peels from an end bay with the bottom of the frame giving way.The frame then leans in to the aisle and peels away from the back to back rack bringing with it several bays. But that is usually it, none of this dramatics.
It's almost as this was a movie. "Shaken not stirred" " Drink responsibly"
TC17, all; you must remember this occured in Russa where rules and regulations you are acustomed to do not apply.
I agree with Mrfixit.......why in the heck are they using that type of equipment inside and in a warehouse with racks. Also notice the racking, I would think they would have larger/thicker/stronger racking to hold up that type of weight, but of course with that lift truck ramming into the bottom racking at that speed, I am not sure if any other racking would have survived, just luck no one was fatally injured.
There is small company in Penticton that is just about ready to introduce thier product that would have eliminated that accident. www.psst1.ca. It' worth checking out.
That is unbelievable, Hope everyone was OK. I guess it was shaken.....not stired.....
Good example of ROPS in action
Solid tire (or cushion tire) counterbalanced forklifts are primarily used in the US, Canada, some in Germany and Austrailia. The rest of the world used pneumatic tire units.
However, operator error exists worldwide.
I suppose all trainers have experienced a time when a learner has pressed the accelerator instead of the brake but thankfully not with the same consequence.
It must be one of the best though !!!!!
To clean-up that mess?
Why on Earth are they using big duel wheel, diesel powered forklifts in a warehouse with isles and racking?
It appears that he suddenly accelerated just a sec before crashing into the racking.
What a mess!
