The British Fork Lift Truck Association have nominated RAVAS MForks for the Awards for Excellence 2012, Safety category.

The British Fork Lift Truck Association have nominated RAVAS MForks for the Awards for Excellence 2012, category Safety. The FLTA is internationally recognized as a leading independent authority on fork lift trucks. It exists to maintain and raise standards in the materials handling industry.

Every year the FLTA nominates the most innovative, ground-breaking products and ideas of importance for the materials handling industry.

In 2010, RAVAS won the British FLTA-Innovation Award for iForks, a completely wireless fork scale for forklifts.

MForks is the first load moment monitoring system integrated into the forks of counterbalanced trucks and reach trucks. MForks measures both the weight of the load and the position of its load center.

MForks is designed to signal overloading of counterbalanced trucks and reach trucks, in order to prevent trucks from tipping
CAST YOUR VOTE!

Voting is possible until January 18, by this voting-card. You can find RAVAS on the voting-card in the category ‘Safety’. The FLTA ‘Pick of the Year’ is a trusted guide to the best new products and innovations in four categories. The Awards night will be held on Feb. 18, 2012.

In practice, it’s left to the forklift driver to interpret the load diagram and to decide whether a load can be lifted safely. Until today, no tool existed that indicates the actual load moment on the forks. MForks changes this: from now on every lift truck driver can have a clear indication of whether a load is being lifted safely.
