PLANTWORK AWARD – MERLO CDC

01 April 2013

MERLO HAS RECEIVED THE “PLANTWORK INNOVATION AND SAFETY AWARD” IN LONDON

After the considerable recognition received for its agricultural safety innovations, the Merlo CDC system (Controllo Dinamico del Carico - Dynamic Load Control) has received an important award to accompany the launch of this innovative technology applied to telehandlers designed for the building sector.
The Plantwork Innovation and Safety Award is organised by the most important building trade fair of Great Britain: Plantwork.
The award recognises the attention that Merlo has always paid to all-round safety and, after convincing the agricultural experts, it’s also winning over those who work in the construction and building fi elds.
The M CDC system analyses the type of device used, the weight, and the position of the raised load. On the basis of this information, it creates a load diagram in real time and the diagram is updated as the work progresses. In this way, the system can manage the approach of the safety limit, indicating it both visually and acoustically to the operator, who can therefore concentrate on his work while the system deals with the safety parameters and, at the same time, ensures top performance levels.
Following its general success in the agricultural world, this new technology will be offi cially presented for the British agricultural market during the Plantwork trade fair in May.
An important début therefore, and one that Merlo will be celebrating with two stands - one classic and one dynamic - where its telescopic handlers will be used for practical tests to show off their performance at its best.
