INSIDE FORKLIFTACTION.COM

In last week’s newsletter, Forkliftaction.com News inadvertently described SMV Konecranes as SMV Lifttrucks. Forkliftaction.com News apologises for the error. SMV Konecranes has been the new name for the forklift and reach stacker manufacturer since it was bought by KCI Konecranes in September 1994. In this week’s industry profile, we interview the new president and CEO of KCI Konecranes, Mr Pekka Lundmark.

The Forkliftaction.com team is exhibiting in CeMAT 2005 at Hall 11, Stand E20. We will be wearing our trademark orange and a great big smile - See you there!

MEDIA RELEASES

Bolzoni Auramo Intelligent Carton Clamp ETX-G3S establishes a new way to handle white goods
Incorrect clamping force is one of the main causes of load and/or packaging damage in the white goods industry. Clamping force must be adjusted to suit the requirements of the logistic handling chain. In principle each load and each handling operation would require a specific clamping force setting. This is impossible without an automatic, intelligent clamping force control.

The Bolzoni Auramo solution is the Intelligent Carton & Appliances Clamp ETX-G3S Series which can be installed on almost all models of Bolzoni Auramo carton and appliance parallel clamps…..Read more with photos

Best-Selling Product Gets Even Better!

PORTLAND, OR. USA – Cascade Corporation has improved pallet-handling operations with the introduction of a new Single-Double High Visibility attachment. Single-Doubles, consistently one of the most popular attachments in the materials-handling industry, are so named because they claim the ability to handle either a single pallet or two pallets side by side.  Double load handling means fewer trips, which in turn doubles productivity and improves operator efficiency.

SAFETY FIRST

Kent O'Sullivan: The basics of adult learning
A high degree of instructor-student interaction is invaluable for maximising the amount of information a student retains. Compared to children and teenagers, adult students have special needs to be met for them to prosper in a learning environment. Therefore, an effective instructor has to be aware of the special challenges they might present.

Help my ancient Clark Clipper!
"I just bought an ancient Clark Clipper in operating condition. Today I took it across the lot and after a short while the power suddenly dropped and it ran like crap. If I wait a few minutes and restart, it runs good for a little while then bad again."

Not enough for the big trucks ...
"Hydrogen fuel cells for forklifts are still a little ways out. The problem is, they still don't supply enough power for the bigger trucks (36V applications). The big players, Cellex, Nuvera, General Hydrogen and Hydrogenics are getting closer to ..."
