iFork lifts existing and new customers to new heights

March 2, 2009

‘Particularly at this time we are very pleased to introduce iForks, the new solution in mobile weighing. The market is  difficult, there’s no arguing about that. But it is very easy to reach existing and new clients with this product because it is truly innovative! So says Henri-Peter van Seumeren, General Manager of RAVAS, talking about the launch of iForks, the first completely wireless scale forks. Of course, this is music to our ears here at Spark, as we’re partners in iForks development.

RAVAS iForksThe most innovative aspect of iForks is that it offers completely wireless fork weighing for forklift trucks, reach trucks and narrow aisle trucks. All the components are fully integrated in the forks which means there’s no need for external cabling. And the weighing system can be installed onto any forklift truck in a matter of minutes: plug & weigh!

Here at Spark we got our teeth into, among other things, the battery pack. Result: a battery pack that not only looks robust but in practice is extremely reliable too. What’s more, the battery packs can be exchanged quickly and easily. We’re most proud of the solution which allows the Electronics to be elegantly infused and assembled into the forks. At the same time the outside of the product clearly communicates the high quality of the system. It was a great project to work on with this Spark client from the very first hour!
