PBR International is a leading designer and manufacturer of innovative brake and clutch products. Surprisingly, the company encountered an issue with its forklifts traveling at unsafe speeds, compromising safety.


PBR had issues with controlling forklift speed when the tynes were elevated. It needed to control this by implementing specific zones within its operations depending on tyne height, the zone where the vehicle was operating, and the varying maximum speeds required.


Speedshield Technologies deployed its Lift Height Speed Control and RFID Zone Identification solutions.


PBR sets the forklifts' maximum speed based on the lower maximum speed of the area in which they were operating and the maximum speed of the tyne height. By enforcing speed limits in line with safe operating procedures in a variable speed zone, it created a seamless workflow that improved productivity, efficiency, and workplace safety.
