|The financial reporting season generates some interesting insights into the broader market.
This week, we include results from Konecranes and JCB - both a bit more cautious about the future than other giants in the sector.
Konecranes says customers are cautious about investing because economic growth has decelerated across the globe. It notes market uncertainty in North America, in particular.
Meanwhile, JCB also talks about difficult market conditions in most developing markets around the world and slower than expected growth in North American and European markets.
These comments contrast with last week's results from the KION Group which saw its orders go up in the second quarter of this year, especially in western Europe and China.

|Looking for a better way to separate your people and plant?|
Today’s workplace has become frantic. With
ever-increasing pressure to remain competitive in the global marketplace, we need to get jobs finished and out the door sooner. The bulk of workplaces rely on human effort to assemble, count, move and process a variety of goods. The tendency to work at a faster pace can increase the risk of making mistakes. Unfortunately, when it comes to people inadvertently walking into the path of a moving vehicle, or a driver not seeing a pedestrian in the vicinity, there is often never a second chance.
In an attempt to separate people and plant, marked walkways go some of the way to improve safety but compliance is not assured and the boundaries easily breached. It would be ideal if pedestrians and vehicles could be wrapped in protective bubbles to avoid injury in event of collision between. Though this is not practical, Orbit Communications may be able to offer you the next best thing - a virtual and invisible safety “bubble” that helps keep your people and vehicles apart.
Orbit’s BodyGuard i-Tag system is a pedestrian detection and warning system that provides an adjustable sized safety exclusion area around your vehicles to keep people and plant apart.
