Fairbanks Scales announces BlueLine Forklift Weigh Fork System

Fairbanks Scales Inc. the oldest scale company in the U.S. and provider of weighing equipment, announces the new mobile weighing, BlueLine Series Forklift Weigh Fork System, ideal for weighing pallets, boxes, crates and forklift loads. With the new mobile BlueLine Series Forklift Weigh Fork System, freight companies, warehouses and inventory management facilities can significantly speed the weighing process, increasing profits through reduced weighing time, increase shipment accuracy and improve product tracking. The system includes the weigh forks, an instrument, instrument mounting bracket, and power couplings.

The timesaving, on-the-go BlueLine Series Forklift Weigh Fork System easily converts an existing Class II or Class III cleat-type forklift into a mobile scale. Completely wireless, the BlueLine weigh forks use a rechargeable battery pack that works independent of the forklift. Weigh fork batteries hold their charge through 180 hours of continuous use and are easy to remove for recharging. The BlueLine Series instrument can be powered by a rechargeable battery, or it can be wired to the forklift’s battery power.

The BlueLine Series Forklift Weigh Fork System has models certified as “legal-for-trade” and are built to last, while remaining accurate and repeatable. Even if the forklift is operating on uneven floors or with a tilted mast.

Fast, easy installation and factory calibration allow the Fairbanks BlueLine Series Forklift Weigh Fork System to be up and running in minutes. Simple to mount on most cleat types, the new system does not require hydraulic lines, cables, hoses, or adapters. After the forks and instrument are secured and powered on, wireless Bluetooth Technology enables instant communication between the BlueLine weigh forks and instrument, without the need for cabling.
