SafeLoad aims to prevent accidents
SafeLoad aims to prevent accidents
RAVAS introduces SafeLoad Zaltbommel, Netherlands RAVAS has introduced the RAVAS-SafeLoad, an aftermarket product for forklifts that provides both weight and stability information in a single combined display. The RAVAS-SafeLoad acts as an active load diagram: it calculates weight, load centre point and mast tilt, in order to decide whether a load is being lifted safely in the current situation. When the lifting is unsafe, the RAVAS-SafeLoad cabin display alerts the driver with both audio and visual signals. The system aims to help prevent tip-overs by providing drivers with the information they need to judge whether a load can be lifted safely or not. The RAVAS-SafeLoad is an aftermarket product that can be retrofitted on any make and model of counterbalance forklift.

The system is employed with its ITM5K industrial tugger, a machine with a capacity of 5,000 kg which features operator override and a PC touchscreen interface.
