Total Contract will Equip 200 Forklifts with Arbor's Gladius G0975 Rugged Tablet and Dock
SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 6, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Arbor Solution announces it has secured the first volume order from a heavy equipment manufacturer to equip its forklifts with rugged tablets. The customer purchased Arbor's Gladius G0975 rugged tablet with the VMC 975 dock for its forklifts in one factory. At the completion of the project, the manufacturer will install the Gladius G0975 on 200 forklifts across six factories. The tablets will be used to direct the driver while performing picks in the factory, and it will interface with a standalone barcode scanner, which collects the inventory information about what is being collected and distributed.
"After successful field testing in a hot, southwest location this summer, Arbor's Gladius G0975 and dock qualified at a fraction of the cost of competing products," said Brian Yurkiw, vice president of Arbor Solution. "In addition to satisfying all of the technical requirements at a low cost, Arbor was chosen because of its U.S.-based service, and its ability to create a system that easily integrated with the customer's existing IT infrastructure."
The Arbor Gladius G0975 tablet is MIL-STD-810G certified for drop and vibration and is IP65 certified as well, meaning it can withstand drops of up to four feet, as well as shocks and spills, and prevents entry of dust and 360-degree water spray. Its rugged characteristics make it perfect for the elements encountered in a factory setting, as well as allow the forklift to move in and out of buildings, without risking damage to the tablet from rain or extreme temperatures.
