Companies involved in the world of material handling are increasingly integrating intelligent technologies and automated systems into their processes to match evolving challenges.

These advanced technologies, such as innovative forks and electric-driven attachments, enable the companies to greatly improve efficiency and lead to self-optimization of material handling process, including maximizing warehouse space and reducing handling times.

Bolzoni Group has developed a bespoke innovative solution range tailored to suit the client’s requirements: Easy-Connect.

The range is based on cutting-edge connectivity which offers a wide range of advanced technologies whilst supplying useful smart logistics solutions.

The Easy-Connect Product range - thanks to advanced sensors, lasers, cameras, embedded software and robotics - meets innovative and high-quality material handling expectations, especially for companies embracing the Industry 4.0 philosophy. 

In addition to the benefits of data collection and analysis through the system, our equipment enables better decision-making, increasing and improving safety and efficiency.

 

Damage reduction with Bolzoni Easy-FORK Vision System sensor

In case of limited operator visibility, especially when handling pallets on high shelves, Easy-FORK Vision Systems enhance the view and safe handling in storage areas.

The Easy-FORK Vision System includes a whole range of smart forks equipped with side, tip or front camera with line laser that allow full frontal visibility even with the load on the forks.

The Easy-FORK Vision System with front camera and line laser is particularly useful in case of low light environment, as the system integrates on the screen a fixed reference, aligned to the fork's tip, providing a landmark during the picking up phase.

The well-protected laser projects a linear blade with a 90-degree angle which is aligned with the fork tips and guarantees the correct reference when loading pallets.

Thanks to the camera position, the driver has a clear view on both fork tips, with a horizontal 120° view angle and a vertical 52° view angle. The color camera is equipped with 6 IR LED and high-resolution images are displayed on a 7-inch monitor installed inside the driver cabin. 

 

Intelligent pressure control systems with Bolzoni Easy-Connect Solutions

When it comes to handling white goods that are prone to damage and with a high unit value it is highly recommended to equip the forklift with damage prevention technological solutions.

Among the Easy-Connect solutions, the Easy-FORCE-C is a semi-automatic force control system, useful for White Goods handling. Through a touch screen, the driver selects the handling load category, type and configuration, and the pressure parameters are automatically set into the clamp to generate the correct clamping force. Moreover thanks to the GPS geolocalization and data collection, fleet managers can analyze handling data later, remotely, via a dedicated portal for managers.

Easy-MOVE clamps are ex-factory preset with load and pressure parameters agreed with the customer. Or simply switch it to single pressure manual mode.

Designed for home and appliance handling with a high level of product differentiation, the Easy-MOVE carton clamp is a laser sensor system with the most advanced technology in sensors and clamping force control.

This completely automatic system is driven by laser sensors and by an electric microcontroller that can detect load dimensions and input the correct clamping pressure through a proportional pressure relief valve. In fact, the change in clamping force is a key driver for load damage prevention.

In cases of paper roll handling, Easy-Connect technologies help to prevent paper roll out-of-roundness and to grant damage-free valuable paper roll handling. The Intelligent Paper Roll Clamp CTX G3, with a microprocessor control system and sensors, automatically uses the optimized, lowest possible clamping force for all handling situations and paper grades.
