Safety, robustness and detection
Manufacturing the future of Material Handling & Off-Highway Vehicles
Applications we serve
Specialty vehicles applications
Crouzet produces high performance material handling components for safety, reliability and detection.
Aerial Work Platforms are often equipped with different tilt sensors. An overweight sensor, commonly activated, will not allow the platform to raise if maximum operating weight is exceeded. Sensors detect the weight point when the platform is off balance and risks a possible tip-over if raised further. Extensometers are key for telescopic machines to ensure performance and ease of attachment.
For electric material handling vehicles, safety switches are key to ensure operators safety by quickly switching off electricity supply. In addition, microswitches are integrated in the electric charging gun to detect if the device was pulled out from the charge adapter or from the vehicle.
The functions of an AWP are controlled by an operator, who can be located either on the work platform itself or at a control panel at the base of the unit. Compact and easy-to-install microswitches are integrated in these control panels to detect the manually operated positions in order to lift up / down the AWP.
Forklifts require robust and durable limit switch such as our 8387 family to accurately detect the fork positions. This type of limit switch ensures safety by delivering precise positionning of heavy loads and control of fast movement.
DC Brushless motors with integrated electronics are well suited to actuate auxiliary functions such as : steering drive, wheel motorization, brake, orientation of material handling.
Our SBR (Seat Belt Reminder) is a safety & patented switch which detects accurately the presence of the driver on his/her seat in order to monitor seat belt systems. This switch can be easily mounted on A or B face of a seat and is adaptable to seat design.
Crouzet successfully serves Material Handling by meeting the rigid standards for every critical application. Our highly experienced staff in design, engineering and production provide technically innovative and custom solutions for high volume production.
