Mitsubishi Forklift Trucks has introduced what it claims is the forklift and materials handling industry's first wireless scale.
In partnership with industrial technology company Mettler Toledo, Mitsubishi will install and calibrate the new scale direct from the factory and integrate it into the forklift carriage.
The scale uses radio frequency technology to do away with cables, and the compact terminal features a Windows-based touch screen.
Data from the scale can be uploaded to a computer for invoicing and tracking.
The scale allows operators to weigh materials from 5lbs to 5,000lbs (2.2kg to 2.2 tonnes) during loading.
No details of the pricing structure have been released.
