Provided as standard fitting on new forklift trucks, forks are the basic attachment. According to the material handling need, the type of load, forklift trucks can be equipped with different types of attachments: paper roll clamps, bale clamps, drum clamps, revolving carriages, etc. Even forks can be upgraded and transformed into ''intelligent'' forks. These modular solutions can be installed on existing side shifters and fork positioners.
Designed for all forklift trucks, Bolzoni has a complete program of intelligent forks.
Intelligent forks are a great help to the forklift truck driver during loading, unloading and warehousing operations, in particular when moving pallets at high levels on shelves and during forklift manoeuvres.
The Bolzoni program of intelligent fork solutions
Designed for all forklift trucks, Bolzoni intelligent forkshave a robust design and are available in different sections and lengths. "It's a matter to improve safety and efficiency inside the working place," says Lorenzo Masoni, Bolzoni Group Fork Product Manager. "To equip forks with a camera allows to quickly engage the handling load, and to move in safety. Furthermore, in order to save time, the fork with the integrated weighing system is able to weigh the handling load, and to save data through an App."

The installation of the RAVAS scale forks iFORKS-32 on the forklift truck takes 5 minutes.
Forklift Truck Scales: iFORKS-32
Installed in minutes, scale forksare used to directly weigh loads during the transportation through forklift truck and to keep track of the load weight data.
These are powered by compact Lithium ion battery packs, without cabling, and have all weighing components well hidden below and behind the fork shoe.
The high accuracy weighing is obtained thanks to the automatic compensation of the mast tilt. This function automatically corrects weight errors that occur when the mast tilts and the forks are not in horizontal position.
Finally, the weighing data are transferred via integrated Bluetooth. Thanks to the RAVAS WeightsApp, available on Google Play and App store, the smartphone or tablet act as a remote display and remote control for the scale.
"This high technology RAVAS product has been distributed by BOLZONI since August 2020," says Lorenzo Masoni, Bolzoni Group Fork Product Manager, "and we highly recommend this product in combination with the fork positioner."
The RAVAS scale forks are easy to install on the Bolzoni Auramo and Meyer fork positioners. Here fitted on a MEYER 6-2504 shaft guided model.
