Shoptalk: How the Forklift Laser Tine Guide System Works
Laser sight lines help operators accurate place forks
Accidents while loading pallet racks are a fact of life in warehouses and other industrial facilities resulting in damaged pallets, inventory, rack structure and injuries. Accidents on high rack bays are more common as drivers often can’t see where their tines are aimed as they pick pallets. And because this type of damage usually means lost inventory or dangerous falling items, these accidents are always expensive.
Tine guides give your drivers a bright red laser that provides a constant and highly-visible visual reference, even high up in a rack bay. Drivers can see exactly where their tines will enter the pallets, and if they are aimed at a beam or at the palletized load. With a reliable visual guide, loading pallets at any height becomes safer and more efficient —which helps you reduce labor costs and product damage while your drivers work faster and more confidently
