Zebra Technologies Corporation announced the ultra-rugged Android-based MC9300 mobile computer, which enables businesses to modernize their mobile solutions to keep up with the growing demands of e-commerce while shortening training time, improving fulfillment speed and accuracy and increasing productivity by as much as 10 percent compared to competing devices. Designed to give a performance edge to those on the front lines of business in warehouses, manufacturing, logistics, and back-of-store retail environments, the MC9300 is ideal for inventory management, receiving/put-away, returns processing, cross docking, quality control, parts tracking, and price audit applications. The MC9300 is also virtually water-, drop-, dust-, and tumble-proof. For challenging cold-storage environments, one MC9300 model features a system of heaters and a freezer-rated battery for frost-free operations.

The Forklift Safety Device Featuring Real-Time Residual Load Capacity

OE Attachments created the Forklift Safety Device (FLSD), which is currently a finalist for the MHI Innovation Award. Using a patented series of sensors and cameras, the device aims to prevent forklift-related accidents, injuries, and property damage by providing real-time monitoring and residual load capacity via a touchscreen monitor installed inside the forklift cab. The Forklift Safety Device provides auditory and visual alerts at all mast heights and positions whenever a safety hazard is imminent, which gives the operator ample time to take corrective action. The device also monitors and responds to external dynamic factors including acceleration, speed, ground slope, mast tilt, load center, and other conditions.
