Meijer Handling Solutions will shortly be introducing its KOOI® ReachControl; a patented system that includes a flowmeter (base unit 100x80x60 mm / 3.93”x3.14”x2.36”) and an app to operate the system. As the name suggests, this flowmeter can detect the amount of oil flowing through telescopic forks.
The specially developed app, compatible with standard Android or iOS devices, can be used to receive and display data of the flowdivider. The more extensive version of the KOOI® ReachControl features the ability to stop the outer sleeves at certain customer adjustable lengths (at least 8 pre-sets).
A common problem in organisations where several different pallet sizes are used, for example in the packaging, paper and furniture industries, is that it is hard to find the optimum length of forklift forks because they are either too long or too short. If the forks are too long, they will protrude through the rear of the pallet when they are being inserted into it and catch any load located behind it when they are raised. This will damage the pallet and possibly the product, and in the worst case, someone could get injured.
