TVH adds wireless camera system
Olathe, KS, United States
TVH in the Americas has introduced a new wireless camera system that can dramatically improve forklift safety and productivity. The camera system is easily installed onto any forklift or heavy machinery to allow operators to see all of their surroundings with ease.
The camera system includes a camera, monitor, a tall bracket to mount the camera, a fan-shaped stand to mount the monitor, a flexi-pack battery and charger with three adapters, two antennae for better connectivity and power cables.
Features include a built-in heater with anti-frost and anti-mist capabilities, a water-resistant housing and a sun shield for optimum visibility. Some other useful features are split-screen monitor, 30-35 hours of battery life with an on/off switch, night vision and a two-year warranty.
New Li-ion charger from Fronius
Li-ion battery charge system
Fronius Perfect Charging has developed a series of battery charging systems for the forklift manufacturer Linde Material Handling that are specially designed for use with lithium-ion batteries. Users can purchase the new devices as part of a complete system for five Linde forklift models with a Li-ion battery.
With lithium-ion technology, fleet operators benefit from a higher energy density and efficiency level compared to lead batteries and they can carry out opportunity charging at any time. This extends deployment times and makes the forklift trucks far less dependent on the energy supply.
The Fronius battery charging systems are available in the 9 kW and 18 kW power categories.
Camso launches usage calculator
Camso's usage intensity calculator
Magog, QC, Canada
Camso has launched a usage intensity calculator that facilitates tyre selection in forklift applications and helps to reduce operating costs.
The web-based tool quantifies different levels of forklift application intensities. Fact-based and built on thousands of hours of testing, it takes into account parameters like lift capacity and working environment as well as idle, travel and manoeuvring time. In a few clicks, the system outputs a forklift's application intensity score. It also offers a recommended Solideal tyre manufactured by Camso, promising maximum tyre life for the application analysed.
"Forklift fleet owners expect maximum life and that's what we promise. We believe tyre life should be a given," says Simon Richard, vice president and general manager - Aftermarket Division at Camso. "For this to be true, you need to be able to match the tyre to the intensity level," he says.
