Wireless Forklift Signaling

Wireless Forklift Signaling Image


Once a filled pallet is conveyed from its wrapping station and arrives at the end of the conveyor, a forklift driver must be notified to remove it immediately so pallet-loads don’t get backed up, and the line keeps moving. When there are multiple conveyors and multiple forklifts, communicating and prioritizing can quickly become complex and difficult.


Banner’s wireless Call-for-Parts Kit offers a simple solution. When the pallet reaches the end of the conveyor, a wireless sensor sends a signal to a gateway, which prioritizes the conveyor requests and  routes them to forklift drivers. The drivers receive the request via an operator interface. To acknowledge availability, drivers press a button on the interface. Once the driver picks up the pallet, the gateway clears the job from the queue.
