Pallets get damaged and people can get hurt. Having a video record of what happened shows who was responsible and helps prevent future incidents. Issues typically decrease when forklift operators know they will be held accountable. Recordings can be useful training aids and are invaluable for proving that every pallet ordered was loaded in a trailer and that all were in good condition.
Without a solution in place:
- Payments can be withheld over pallet damage without proof of who was responsible.
- Claims are made for missing pallets.
- New operators may not follow training or checklists.
- Operator productivity is lower.
- Pedestrian safety incidents occur.
Using an HVS camera system:
- Managers can confirm operators are using seat belts, performing checklists properly, and driving safely.
- Forklifts and AGVs can be visually monitored in real time (using camera systems with Wi-Fi). Check in on the new operator’s productivity.
- Customers find that damage decreases substantially when operators know they will be held accountable.
- Evidence of what happened and who was responsible is stored in the case of an impact or a safety incident.
- There is proof that all pallets were shipped, and that they were all in good condition when they left your dock.
Warehouses often have narrow aisles, tall racking, and double-deep racking in order to store a higher volume of products. It is difficult for forklift operators to judge the height of their forks when picking from an upper rack level. Double-deep racking presents an additional challenge because operators must insert their forks without seeing the pallet when picking from the rear layer.
Rolls of material are often very large and can block the forklift operator’s view, making it difficult to maneuver the forklift. Rolls are easily damaged or soiled, causing scrap loss. It is difficult for the operator to place the ends of the roll core into rack receptacles without cameras to help.
Maneuvering a forklift is difficult since it requires driving in reverse for most jobs due to the load obstructing the frontal view. Rear-end steering makes the forklift take tight turns in the front but swing wide in the back.
Let's Build Something Together
HVS welcomes the opportunity to work with original equipment manufacturers (OEM) to help integrate camera systems into their products.
Eliminating visibility issues for operators will make your equipment easier and safer to use and will remove a possible barrier to purchase. HVS is able to design camera systems to integrate with your equipment, support its application, and suit its operating environment.
We have been in business more than 25 years.
We don't just sell you a camera system and make you figure out how to use it.
We develop product and can configure camera systems as needed.
We can special design a system to fuse into your product and manufacturing process.
For manufacturers wanting to build a camera system into their product, we go to great lengths to choose or develop the right equipment for their needs. We can tailor most features of our systems and we will work with your team to ensure that the camera system will smoothly integrate into your product and manufacturing processes.
