Expanding its line of low-profile rough-terrain vehicles, the manufacturer introduces the STM55LP trailer-mounted forklift. The three-wheel drive loader has many design features in common with the company’s four-wheel machines, product engineers affirm, including excellent visibility and a roomy operator’s platform. Conveniently transported to any work site, they add, the STM55LP also is easy to operate, as well as quick and nimble to help improve loading times. Sellick Equipment Ltd.
LOGO STRETCH WRAP
Logo Wrap is a patented method for automatically applying four-sided brand identification to a pallet of product as part of the stretch-wrapping process. Stretch film, custom printed with a company name or logo, can be applied using Logo Wrap to identify loads and their origins, plus provide extra advertising Û simply and affordably, the manufacturer emphasizes. Contact information or storage and transportation instructions also can be indicated, reducing material and labor costs associated with manually applying stickers or labels.
The Logo Wrap dispenser is easily integrated into any new or existing Muller Octopus stretch-wrapping machines. It applies the printed film under the standard stretch film during the normal wrapping cycle. ITW Muller
REBAR TYING TOOL
Now available in U.S. and Canadian markets as a replacement for the MAX RB395, the new RB397 Rebar Tying Tool handles up to #5 _ #6 rebar. A labor-saving device capable of reducing costs by one-fifth of current budgets, the manufacturer contends, RB397 is equipped with a 14.4v lithium-ion battery, increasing tying times per charge by more than 400 percent to 2,000 ties per charge. Additionally, a brushless motor extends the life of the unit’s twisting motor.
The RB397 also features a trigger lock, torque adjustment dial, reversible belt hook, carrying case, and automatic shut-off when the tool is not in use. It comes standard with charger and battery pack.
Reports released by NIOSH [HEATA #2003-0146-2976] and the Canadian Safety Association of Ontario [Final Report-WSIB Grant #01023] support company statements that the RB397’s simple operation reduces potential wrist damage and Carpal Tunnel claims, as workers use the rebar tool instead of tying by hand.

MULTIPLE-CELL SCALE SYSTEM MANAGEMENT
New iQUBE2 digital junction-box technology has the capacity to update up to 500 times per second, achieving unrivaled precision and profit levels, the manufacturer affirms. Thus promoted as the fastest equipment on the market for managing multiple-cell scale systems, iQUBE2 also raises the bar in onboard diagnostics, product developers note, by allowing users to identify noise, test for linearity, and monitor drift.
Additionally, as the diagnostic tool identifies a load-cell failure, a cell-emulation feature enables iQUBE2 to calculate an accurate weight based on comparisons to functioning cells. Accordingly, weighing can continue until a repair is made. Rice Lake Weighing Systems
