Are you getting all you can from your forklifts? Equip them with rugged TOUGHBOOK technology, and connect them to the right systems, and your productivity and efficiency will reach new heights.
Automation points the way to the future
Automation is a growing trend in warehouses and beyond, driven by the need for 24/7 real-time track and trace solutions from dispatch to delivery. Unsurprisingly, forklifts have become a focus for automation, with the promise of 25% productivity increases. Rugged technology, such as TOUGHBOOK tablets and handheld devices, is the ideal companion to an automated forklift fleet, displaying information on product location, placement, and order priority, and sharing it via Wi-Fi or 4G capabilities for real-time communications and data exchange. And that’s only the beginning. The combination of your forklifts and our mobile solutions devices opens a whole world of possibility for your business…
Don’t let our ergonomic and lightweight designs fool you. TOUGHBOOK devices are heavy hitters.
Every aspect of our software has been tailored to make warehouse working a breeze: from built-in voice picking capability, to easy integration with your WMS to bring you lag-free working.
With integrated options such as Barcode readers and RFID readers, hot-swap battery features and flexible docking meaning you can take one device from forklift to desk, it’s time to say hello to warehouse management that doesn’t stop – all in one compact device.
TOUGHBOOK devices are specifically engineered with the unique and challenging warehouse and forklift environment in mind.
“TOUGHBOOK devices are 7 times more reliable than the industry average”
Rigorously tested resistance to dust, water, drops, shocks, vibrations and extreme temperatures, so you can take your work to the limits.
Toughened, anti-reflective, glove-enabled multi-touchscreens for undisturbed, seamless operation.
IP-certified and meeting military test vibration standards.
Like TOUGHBOOK devices, our fully-rugged vehicle docks and mounts are ergonomically designed and rigorously tested. What’s more, they provide a complete and safety-compliant solution that’s easily transferable between vehicles.
As well as off-the-shelf options, our docking solutions can be fully customised too. From conception to installation and beyond, our experts will work with you every step of the way to design the perfect docking solution to meet your business requirements.
At some point, every year, each of your forklifts will naturally be interrupted for a number of hours due to planned servicing or unplanned maintenance.
With fixed computers, whenever that happens, the computer is out of action too.
And conversely, should the computer need to be repaired, serviced or updated, the forklift itself becomes unusable.
Spread this across a large fleet and you could be losing significant working hours…and money.
Our specialist docks feature VESA mounting plates, meaning your devices can be moved easily and securely from bracket to bracket, and vehicle to vehicle. No damage and no downtime.
Your operators need instant access to digital information at their fingertips. But nothing should compromise their safety or your security.
Our screen-blanking software automatically disables device screens when vehicles are moving, reducing the risk of driver distraction. In addition, automatic screen lock on idle devices ensures any sensitive data remains fully protected.
To guarantee the smooth running of your operations, your drivers require instant and uninterrupted access to vital stock information, delivery scheduling, and communications. They also need to be able to capture and share data on the go. No delays. No downtime.
With optimised connectivity a must in today’s working world, our engineers are here to help you with first-class network integration support
For environments where excellent wireless signal is crucial, TOUGHBOOK devices feature optimised WiFi antennae, meeting the highest levels of connectivity standards for seamless connectivity. So you can enjoy high speed, low latency working, with stronger signal and ultimate connection stability.
Our devices come with integrated LAN, wireless LAN, and Bluetooth as standard, with optional WWAN (3G/4G) and GPS capabilities available for real-time information sharing and communication. Helping to reduce errors, improve speed and streamline workflows.
Our external antennas increase signal strength when in remote locations.
To stay productive, your forklift computers need access to power. TOUGHBOOK devices stay powered-up wherever your forklifts go, thanks to class-leading extended battery life, flexible input/output configuration options, and hard-wearing, lightweight power adaptors that can cope with fluctuating temperatures and the challenging conditions of warehouse working.
You can choose from fully rugged forklift DC/DC adaptors, developed specifically to prevent power surges and damage to your mobile devices. Available for 12-32Vdc, 20-60Vdc and 70-110Vdc power sources, the cable lengths and connectors can be customised to your exact requirements.
Extended battery life. Hot and warm-swap options. Up to 24-hour operational capabilities.
TOUGHBOOK devices can handle multiples shifts and multiple workers.
TOUGHBOOK has partnered with Lind Electronics to combine our devices with the Lind Shut Down Timer (SDT), that protects your forklift batteries and communications equipment from over-discharge, low voltage and high-voltage damage. It also means your computers are powered on or off in conjunction with your forklifts being started up.
Our docks and mounts can also be engineered to further optimise the wireless connection of your mobile computers thanks to optional dual-antenna pass-through?
TOUGHBOOK laptops and handheld devices are powerful tools. But connect them to a wide range of software, accessories and rugged peripherals, and they become the ultimate companion for your forklift fleet.
Developed as part of our end-to-end TOUGHBOOK Omnia software, you can now specify your rugged devices with voice capability. Operational even in noisy industrial environments, it delivers significant improvements in productivity, accuracy and efficiency. Your forklift operators simply use voice commands to carry out picking, repair and inventory taking, while being free to perform other tasks simultaneously.
We can also develop customised software and apps including custom image creation, personalised landing pages and applications, designed for your business and forklift workers.
The TOUGHBOOK devices in your forklifts can be specified with – or connect to – a wide range of specialist peripherals, including barcode and fingerprint readers, mobile printers, USB drives, multi-bay chargers, external PCs and monitors, and much more.
