The forklift truck is a common piece of equipment for many industrial manufacturing operations that need to move enormous amounts (read: tons) of material from point A to point B, day in and day out. Most of these operations probably feel like they can’t live without forklifts. However, the convenience and expediency they provide in addition to sparing workers the task of lifting heavy loads often comes with an enormous price.
Forklift trucks can present a significant safety hazard to operators as well as anyone in the proximity of forklift traffic in the facility. When accidents occur, the monetary costs can add up quickly. Automated solutions, like PRAB conveying systems, are designed to quickly and efficiently move this material out of the work zone to an area where it can be processed, disposed of or recycled.
