Votex-Bison has equipped its STAMPEDE model with the new FLEX-OPS® system of MSE-FORKS. This system is developed to optimize safety for workers and working environment and to prevent permanent fork deflection or fork breaking.
How it works: the patented system makes use of strain gauges that are glued directly to the forks of the Votex-Bison STAMPEDE. These strain gauges are connected to an indicator which shows the load weight on the (telescopic) forks, in percentages or in kilos. When overloading occurs the FLEX-OPS® will alert the operator with a visual or audiovisual signal. Also, the system saves data on the unsafe overload situation, it records the date and time.
Thanks to close cooperation between MSE-FORKS and Votex Bison Material Handling B.V. it is possible to come and see this system during the Logimat 2013 in Stuttgart. You will find Votex Bison in hall 8 stand 222.
The LogiMat will take place from 19 till 21 February. Opening hours: 9.00h – 17.00h.
