Linde safety recognised
Linde picks up it inter airport Europe 2019 award
Linde Material Handling has won the inter airport Europe 2019
Excellence Award in the interRAMP category for its innovative Linde Safety Guard assistance system which helps to protect both pedestrians and forklift drivers.
The Linde Safety Guard assistance system works by using ultra-wideband (UWB) technology. The mobile, forklift-mounted units transmit radio signals with centimetre precision, even through walls and doors, and warn drivers and pedestrians of potential collisions via acoustic, visual and tactile signals. In this way, they prevent accidents and increase operational safety.
"We are delighted to receive the award and are confident that the system will enhance the working environment of logistics employees, helping to keep them safe and healthy, while also increasing productivity in ground handling," says Product Manager Fabian Zimmermann, who accepted the award on behalf of Linde Material Handling.
