Smart logistics and Industry 4.0 have created an ever growing demand for data input as a tool to optimise supply chains and reach required profit levels. RAVAS forklift scales provide data on material flows, making these data available to the proper people and software platforms in a company’s organisation, through the integration of connected trucks. These data allow companies to streamline their supply chains and reduce their cost. Smart attachments like RAVAS iForks will shift lift truck value away from mere materials handling, in the direction of data sampling.
iForks: a smart attachment for forklift trucks
RAVAS iForks are a smart attachment for forklift trucks. These weighing forks replace the standard forks on a truck. From that moment on, everything lifted on these forks is weighed at the same time. The weight information is represented on a driver display in the cabin of the truck, and can be shared with an ERP or WMS via the user’s existing wireless network. Integration with ID-scans and other devices, like dimensioning equipment, produces extensive data sets on materials moving through the supply chain. Information that provides immediate cost reductions. And RAVAS mobile weighing devices provide this weight information on the fly, without disrupting work cycles or internal logistics.
The trend is “Connect me”. RAVAS mobile weighing systems provide connectivity and integration: from the level of system integration, right down to data collection Apps for smart phones and tablets. RAVAS iForks are the perfect example of a smart attachment for forklift trucks. Existing attachments are equipped with sensors, to make them smart and allow integration within the Industry 4.0 environment. Fleets of trucks, connected via the Internet of Things, provide real-time input for global supply chain management. Smart attachments will shift truck value away from mere materials handling, in the direction of data sampling.
