Moving Loads Safely – A Solution to an Application Challenge Using SICK Safety Sensors

Materials Handling Challenge:
During a site visit with a very good Barclay customer to review a new Yale Reach Truck for his operation, our customer explained a problem they were having. There were two doorways that divided the areas of the facility where the reach trucks had to transport pallet loads of material. Apparently there had been several instances when the lift truck operator did not lower the load enough before entering the doorway causing damage to the lift truck and the load.  Our first suggestion was to provide more Operator Safety Training to improve awareness and discipline but after discussing further, the customer felt that this was not enough to prevent future occurrences.
Materials Handling Solution: SICK Safety Sensors
Barclay Rep Chuck Romaniak recommended a product by SICK USA, a leading producer of sensors for automation.  He set up a site visit with the Manufacturer Rep and demo of the product. It worked very well. Both doorways were outfitted with sensors and the reach truck with a variable alarm linked to the back-up alarm to make it loud enough for the noisy environment. The customer was provided with the software to adjust and or rebalance the system as needed. The technology is new for this type of application but is basically the same as what they use for E-Z Pass systems.
