iForks makes weighing of air cargo pallets fast and easy. While handling the pallet on the forklift, the scale forks measure the weight of the pallet and add the weight information to the AirWay Bill data set. iForks allow an air cargo handler to check the real weight of every pallet against the declared weight on the Air Waybill: weight differences are corrected on the Air Waybill, making sure that correct weights are invoiced. Increased revenues usually provide 100% ROI on iForks within months.
iForks are certified legal for trade, therefore the measured weight can be used for invoicing. iForks allow the check weighing of every air cargo pallet directly on the forklift truck, without loss of time. iForks is a completely wireless scale system for use on forklift trucks and can be installed on any forklift in a matter of minutes.
How does it work?
Every pallet handled on a forklift is automatically weighed by the scale forks, the weight shown on the iForks display in the cabin. The pallet is identified, e.g. by bar code scan, linking it to an Air Waybill data set. The pallet weight is transferred from the scale display to the WMS, where the weight on the Air Waybill is corrected if necessary. Data transfer from scale to WMS can be via cable if there is a data terminal on the truck, or via wireless to an existing WLAN network. Essential is that every pallet can be checked for weight, right on the forklift truck, during handling, without having to drive back and forth to a floor scale. That makes iForks extremely suitable for use during the rush hours that are such a defining aspect of air cargo handling.
Certified legal for trade iForks are certified legal for trade, class OIML III, certificate number T2735. This certification allows invoicing by the weight measured on iForks: it guarantees the accuracy of the scale, independent of the position of the load on the forks, and independent of temperature changes or electromagnetic fields.
What is iForks?
iForks is the first completely wireless set of scale forks for use on forklift trucks, reach trucks and narrow aisle trucks. Since all scale components are completely integrated in the forks, iForks has no external cabling whatsoever. iForks can be installed on any forklift in a few minutes: plug & weigh! From then on any load lifted is instantly weighed.
Low cost of ownership
The iForks weight display in the cabin shows the weight of the pallet load on the forks. It provides a range of scale functions:
- gross/net weighing
- total weight per shipment
- ID code entry etc.

RAVAS, The Mobile Scale Company, introduces iForks, the first completely wireless scale forks for forklift trucks, reach trucks and narrow aisle trucks. Since all components are fully integrated in the forks, the iForks have no external cabling whatsoever and the weighing system can be installed onto any forklift truck in a matter of minutes: plug & weigh! From that moment on, every load lifted by the truck is instantly and accurately weighed.
Each scale fork communicates the weight lifted with the weight indicator in the cabin via Bluetooth. The iForks weight indicator in the cabin shows the weight of the load on the forks and offers a complete range of weighing functions: gross/net weighing, total weight per shipment, code entry, date/time registration, and piece counting. The indicator can provide weight data transfer to a printer, a data terminal, or directly to a WMS or ERP system, via RS232, Bluetooth or WiFi. The display is equipped with backlight, making it perfectly readable even in the darkest corners of a warehouse or production environment. iForks offers Digital Calibration Technology: via the keys of the indicator the scale can be digitally adjusted, quickly and accurately. Which makes for a very maintenance friendly weighing system and low cost of ownership.
The user can supervise the power management of the iForks himself. The weighing system has an auto-shut-off function which automatically switches off the electronics after a prolonged period of non-use. Via a power management menu on the indicator the user can adjust the auto-shut-off time according to the use and application of the truck.
