GKD Technologies and Kobelco team up at Bauma
It’s safety first at Bauma, and with this firmly in mind, GKD Technologies have teamed up with Kobelco Construction Machinery Europe, and have installed a GKD 2RCi slew control system to one of Kobelco’s demonstration machines at the show on stand FN1016.
The 2RCi rated capacity indicator has been fitted to a 2,700kg Kobelco SK210LC-10, in order to restrict the machine’s slew at the event whilst working in the outside demonstration area.
The GKD 2RCi is a highly flexible safety system which in its basic form is a simple load indicator – but can easily be configured to incorporate height and slew monitoring. Using intelligent motion cut facilities, the system can control the safe movement of height, slew and or load.
UK based, GKD Technologies designs electronic sensor technology and software for use as safety warning devices to protect people, machines and equipment in construction, earth moving and rail industries.
The company is also exhibiting at Bauma Munich, showing its full range of safety systems for Road & Rail machinery, in the British Pavilion, hosted by the CEA (Construction Equipment Association) in Hall B5 438H.
