SOLUTRANS, the urban and road transport solutions show, was celebrated from 21 to 25 November, at Lyon Eurexpo.

 

Six themes were revealing major market trends featured in the 2017 edition of SOLUTRANS: the factory of the future, new motorisation and energy, connected roads and vehicles, deliveries in city centres, training and cybersecurity.

Our importer OPSYSELEC presence at the fair represented an excellent opportunity to promote the CLAITEC PAS (People detector) on the French market.

Storage spaces, industrial areas or truck loading and unloading areas are just some of the work sites where there never seem to be enough square meters to work on. From the forklifts, to the operators and the merchandise itself … all these elements create overloaded, narrow spaces where both control and prevention become key to averting accidents.

 

To help you tackle this kind of difficulties in your workspaces, we’d like to tell you today about the benefits of the NAS Solution for safety in narrow aisle – a highly sought-after product amongst our clients who always comment on its great performance.

The NAS solution warns forklift drivers – by means of a traffic light – when another forklift is already located in a zone considered to be of limited space. This development is especially useful in areas where forklifts commonly cross or manoeuvre and spaces with high intensity traffic of industrial vehicles, especially for retractable and trilateral forklifts.

 

The forklifts incorporate reflective coded bands that when detected by the detection sensors activate the traffic lights installed in the aisle. From that moment, and while the truck remains in the aisle, the traffic light will indicate its presence in the area to the rest of the vehicles or pedestrians that approach that place, avoiding collisions or risk situations in spaces where manoeuvres of any kind are significantly reduced.

The NAS solution stands out for its easy implementation: it only requires coded reflective strips for the forklifts, a code detection sensor, the control unit and a traffic light. In addition, the elements in this system stand out for their durability and robustness.

 

We invite you to find out more about the NAS system here.

We all know that the pace of work in the industry tolerates – less and less – any type of unexpected events, miscalculations or functioning problem of our main tools. It follows that every day is increasingly more important to be able to anticipate possible errors and prevent and act responsibly to cover all flanks.

That’s why in today’s post we’d like to introduce the TAG Low Battery Simulator (T-10sb), a highly effective tool for our daily operations.

 

As you know, the PAS System includes an element referred to as the AV-50 – the antenna responsible for the verification of the tags. This element also serves to corroborate if a T-10 tag is working correctly or if the battery is running on low and about to run out.

Of course, the AV-50 is an extremely useful device – to the point that it is currently placed in most PAS system installations. But when it comes down to business, we must also ask ourselves:

 

How can we put that verification antenna to the test?

 

And this is where the Low Battery Simulator appears. We can describe the simulator as a somewhat special T-10 Tag or a device with two pushbuttons – one that indicates if the battery level is correct and another that tells us if the battery level is running low.

 

The T-10sb is extremely useful when we first install the AV-50 verification antenna. In addition, some of our clients have requested this device because they also want to verify that the system works correctly from time to time – for instance, when they conduct annual or semi-annual reviews.

The Battery Simulator is also useful when testing registration software. In this case, the T-10sb’s unique identifier appears in the software every time the test is conducted, indicating whether the battery is at a correct level or whether it’s running on low.

 

More than 430 companies exhibited in the Logistics & Distribution fair on November 7 and 8.

The event included 8 conference rooms and more than 120 speakers to discuss the main innovations and trends in the sector for the coming years, among which the development of the digitized industry (Industry 4.0) and a circular consumption production model stand out that reduce costs and residues.

 

Our partner Faw Logistics presence at the fair represented an excellent opportunity to promote the CLAITEC PAS (People detector) on the Spanish market.

When it comes to loading or unloading a truck and receiving or dispatching merchandise, every single minute counts! There’s no time to waste! However, we should never lose sight of a very important fact – working in a hurry to get things done shouldn’t risk employees’ safety or provoke potential accidents.

 

That’s why today we want to talk about a new concept that has been generating very good results in this area.

 

Let us envision a logistic warehouse like so many others where trucks are parked outside for loading and forklifts circulate inside loading and unloading the merchandise. In this situation we can frequently observe that as the load is being handled, forklifts tend to enter or exit the trucks at high speeds, generating several potentially risky situations.

First, there is a danger of suffering an accident. Forklifts generally need a ramp to reach the interior of a truck. If they speed up on their way up, they can hit an obstacle or rollover, among many other potentially hazardous situations.

 

Then, we also need to take into account the gradual physical damages caused to the forklift operator. Every time the forklift goes over a ramp connecting the warehouse to the truck, the vehicle can shake with greater or lesser intensity, generating a blow on the back of that operator, which, after hours and days, can result in significant injury.

For all these reasons, we’d like to introduce you to the benefits of the LSA (Low Speed Area).

 

The LSA is a system that will allow you to regulate the speed with which forklifts circulate on the loading and unloading areas, preventing and minimizing risks and injuries for your employees.

The LSA solves the aforementioned problems and tackles several potential risks. The device is easily installed in the trucks and reflector strips are placed on the roof of the warehouse delimiting the slow speed zones and the fast speed zones. When the forklift drives through these limits, the system automatically detects at what speed it should be circulating and changes the pace of the vehicle.

Similarly, in the loading and unloading areas, the LSA limits the speed of the forklift and forces the driver to drive at a safer pace. The system allows to easily switch from an unlimited speed mode to a controlled speed mode, making it extremely easy to be used in all sorts of daily tasks.

Find out how the LSA works in this video.

 

Additionally, at Claitec we have also developed other products to work against the various risk factors that occur in the loading docks. We invite you to visit our website and find out further details: claitec.com

 

Around 7.500 people visited the Transport & Logistics Antwerp fair on October 17, 18 and 19.

 

Esquenet’s presence at the fair represented an excellent opportunity to promote the CLAITEC brand and products on the Belgium market.

Esquenet, Claitec’s importer in Belgium, exhibited its PAS (Pedestrian Alert System) and LSA (Speed Zoning) products ranges and latest developments.
