Electric, Counterbalance, High-Output Forklift
Schaeff's new stand-up, counterbalance forklift is known as the ECHO (Electric, Counterbalance, High-Output) 3000. The ECHO 3000 has several innovative features such as Brake/Lift and Reverse/Lift interlock that helps decrease the probability of accidents. These programmable settings prevent operation of the lift functions when brake pedal is released or when traveling in reverse (both can be disabled or enabled through programming). Brake/Lift Interlock helps remind the operator that he/she has to be in the operator compartment and on the brake before lifting can begin. Reverse/Lift Interlock helps remind the operator that he/she can't lift while in reverse, which helps keep the operator's eyes on the load while lifting. Schaeff, Inc., P.O.

Order Validation Software
RapidCHECK order validation software can confirm that the correct items have been assembled for an order. The software was developed in response to the high costs associated with inaccurate orders such as customer dissatisfaction, labor for return processing, labor for restocking, loss of stock incorrectly shipped and damaged stock from excessive shipping and handling. RapidCHECK compares the actual weight of an order against its expected weight, and if it doesn't match, the order is diverted to a check station to resolve the discrepancy. The software was developed using the Windows NT operating system, allowing Windows literate users to easily interface the system. Convenient window displays allow operators to set system weight parameters and check the real-time status of inducted orders. The software can stand-alone or be integrated with RapidROUTE Zone Routing software. Rapistan Systems, 507 Plymouth Ave. NE, Grand Rapids, MI 49505. North American Material Handling Show, Booth #810.

New software program is available in all Voyager electronic balances from Ohaus. Because of the simplicity and design of the user interface, each step of the density determination process is spelled out in plain text to the operator. Specific prompts are used for powdered metal parts in order to determine parameters such as oil impregnation. To find the density of a part, the user inputs the water temperature or density of other liquid. The sample part is placed on the weighing pan, and the sample weight is automatically stored in memory. The part is then suspended in liquid, the weight is captured again, and the density is calculated according to Archimedes' principle of fluid displacement.
