Anti-collision technology that allows users to operate more than one vehicle in a narrow aisle.

Averting potential fire danger inside the tunnel

Plenty of people underestimate the danger of a fire spreading through a tunnel. Smoke and heat have no way to escape, and they spread at rapid speeds. The short amount of time needed for hot axles or cracked brake rotors on trucks or motor coaches to cause a fire is also well established. Despite all this, there is a way to identify overheating parts on a vehicle before it enters a tunnel and to pull that vehicle out of traffic: using the VHD Pro vehicle hot spot detector from SICK.

Increased safety for tyre-curing presses

Sick has been working with tyre manufacturer Continental to improve safety on its tyre-curing presses, which are in use at 16 locations around the world. Continental was seeking to equip the presses with a uniform, global safety concept while achieving optimum ergonomics and flexibility.

Vehicle safety in mining

The increase in mine productivity has led to a proportional increase in the size of the equipment used. Most vehicles have considerable operator blind spots, due to scale alone. Despite the best efforts of operators, accidents on mine sites remain an industry-wide problem. The reasons for accidents are diverse, so too are the collision scenarios.

Safeguarding your machine

In the early days of the industrial revolution, labour was cheap and there was little regard for pain and suffering of injured workers. In more recent times, we have evolved through changes in social attitudes, placing more value on people who work with machines. These changes ensure that we continue to develop safeguarding measures for existing and new machinery. The challenge is to continue to improve the existing safety of machinery and also, as we make advances in technology, any new hazards need to be managed in a way that aligns with what is expected from the modern-day employer.
