Ravas iForks 32: the Next Generation of Forklift Truck Scales

Ravas iForks 32: the Next Generation of Forklift Truck Scales
Ravas (Netherlands) – “iForks, the hugely successful RAVAS scale forks, are moving into their next generation! With only 52mm fork height and no external components on the fork shank, iForks 32 gets to look more and more like standard lift truck forks. The upgraded 3200 driver display offers attractive new features, like standard Bluetooth connectivity. Industry 4.0, here we come…”, shared Ravas.

Compact Lithium Ion batteries:
iForks 32 looks leaner than its predecessor: the big battery packs have been eliminated and replaced by more compact Lithium Ion batteries that supply the same capacity and more reliability. All scale components on the forks are now hidden below and behind the fork shoe, creating a slick, efficient look for iForks 32.

The changes to batteries and Bluetooth modules, and the elimination of the cover plates, leave no external components on the fork shank, making iForks 32 even more easy to fit onto fork positioners. And since machining of the fork shank is no longer needed, the structural strength of the forks has increased, making it possible to reduce the fork height to only 52mm. iForks 32 is now only marginally higher than standard lift truck forks.

New 3200 driver display:
The 3200 weight indicator offers interesting improvements, compared to the previous 3100. Its functions now include automatic tilt compensation, to automatically correct weight errors that occur when the mast tilts and the forks are not in horizontal position. And the 3200 instrument automatically logs tip loads and overload events.

Bluetooth 4.0 is a standard feature on the 3200, providing connectivity to PDA’s, tablets and smart phones. A RAVAS app is available from Google Play and the App store. It acts as a remote display and remote control for the scale, but also allows you to download data from the 3200 instrument and send it off via email.

iForks 32: all USP’s at a single glance:
  • Advanced 3200 driver display
  • No cabling, no external components
  • Standard fork shank, easy installation, fits on fork positioners
  • Forks are only 52mm high
  • Compact Lithium Ion battery packs
  • Automatic tilt compensation
  • Overload and tip load logging
  • Bluetooth 4.0 as a standard feature
  • With user and service app

The new iForks 32 Forklift Truck Scales will be available in 2018.
