Sensor fork - safety and efficiency
Fork positioners and forks with built-in intelligence where intuition meets precision. When the field of vision is obstructed by the goods, only the gut feeling remains. SmartFork® is a product range with several different types of sensor technology for visibility, attention, position, weight, etc.
You can use SmartFork® in logistics 4.0 and replace gut feeling with safety and a whole new level of efficiency.
At Hagaberg, we offer SmartFork® optimally integrated on our own manufactured high quality fork positioners.
SmartFork® is developed by our partner Vetter Industrie in Germany. They also work with the same goals as us, to continuously develop advanced solutions to improve efficiency, precision and safety. Solutions that meet the highest standards of quality, reliability and service life.
Why invest in sensor forks?
20% of all machine accidents at work involves a forklift truck. Most reports of work-related accidents leading to sick leave, involves a forklift truck. That is 20% of all machine accidents. From 2008 to 2012, 87 fatal accidents related to machinery work were reported in Sweden. This is one third of all fatal accidents at work. This number of accidents related to machinery work were reported to the Swedish Work Environment Authority. This includes both mobile, stationary and handheld machines. In total approximately 30,000 accidents leading to sick leave for at least one day were reported during the period 2008 – 2012. This means about 6,000 accidents annually, with a small dip for the recession year 2009. The proportion of machine accidents is thus around 20 percent of the total number of reports.
