Safety first: GKD teams up with Kobelco in Munich

GKD Technologies has installed a GKD 2RCi slew control system to one of Kobelco’s demonstration machines at bauma 2019.

The 2RCi rated capacity indicator has been fitted to a 2,700kg Kobelco SK210LC-10, in order to restrict the machine’s slew at the event whilst working in the outside demonstration area.

UK-based GKD said the 2RCi is a ‘highly flexible’ safety system which in its basic form is a simple load indicator, but can easily be configured to incorporate height and slew monitoring. Using intelligent motion cut facilities, the system is said to be capable of controlling the safe movement of height, slew and or load.

GKD is also exhibiting at bauma, showing its range of safety systems for road and rail machinery, in the British Pavilion, hosted by the Construction Equipment Association.
