Roncari USA and Unit Load Handling Systems, Inc. have been selected by Owens Illinois Canada Ltd. to supply the Roncari UFB model multi pallet handler forklift attachments for all its Canadian operations. The decision was reached after close and detailed evaluation of several competitive attachments in the OI operations.
Roncari and others accepted the challenge to design the attachments to handle all their varied sizes of pallets. From the testing of these trial units OI determined the Roncari was decidedly the superior machine with better design. A particular challenge was the requirement to eliminate the troublesome air cylinders and extra hydraulic functions from the design they currently used.
Advantages of the Roncari UFB are the simplicity and ruggedness of design, ease of use and total visibility through the center, which speeds operations and reduces product damage.
Five OI plant locations involved in the selection of the UFB on Yale forklifts.
