Intermec introduces Mobile RFID forklift kit
EVERETT, Wash., January 8, 2007 - Intermec Inc. today introduced the Adaptable Load Backrest and Antenna Cell system. This RFID (radio frequency identification) forklift installation system allows forklift drivers to use RFID and other data collection technologies to gather complete real-time inventory data efficiently and safely without leaving their vehicle.
Intermec partnered with Cascade Corporation, the world leader in the design and manufacture of lift truck attachments, to create an RFID-enabled forklift system that integrates durable, rugged inventory and data collection technology with existing forklift equipment. The system improves performance and safety while significantly reducing the cost of RFID forklift deployments in warehouse applications.
The Intermec Adaptable Load Backrest and Antenna Cell system can be made to accommodate almost all forklifts on the market, providing customers a factory-certified product designed specifically for their lift trucks that meets OSHA and industry safety requirements. Flexible and configurable, the Adaptable Load Backrest switches easily from one application to another, allowing the driver to accomplish pallet-, case- and even shelf-level readings without the costly and intensive labor associated with retrofit systems.
Intermec Mobile RFID forklifts bring together a variety of integrated Intermec products, such as the CV30 vehicle mount computer, the IV7 vehicle-mount RFID reader and the Adaptable Load Backrest and Antenna Cells to create an efficient platform for warehouse and distribution center applications requiring RFID tag shelf location, pallet and case level reading. Other featured products include Intermec's SR60 industrial-strength handheld scanner designed to quickly scan barcodes from as close as 27 inches and as far away as 36 feet, and the cordless SR61 scanner with mobility up to 100 feet from the host.
Industry experts will be able to see the Adaptable Load Backrest for themselves at two upcoming conferences: ProMat 2007 on Jan. 8 - 11 at McCormick Place South in Chicago, and the National Retail Federation show Jan. 14 - 17 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City, booth 337.
The Adaptable Load Backrest is available in North America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America and can be ordered directly through authorized distributors of Cascade Corporation attachment products.
