Case Study: Eliminate Vibration & Reduce Driver Fatigue

Problem

Nissan Canada Inc. introduced a new line of fork lift trucks featuring an innovative “floating cab” designed to eliminate vibration and reduce driver fatigue.

Situation

Drummond Equipment, Inc. was asked to supply mechanical equipment to simulate the vibration frequency and amplitude generated by a running lift truck so the benefits of the “floating cab” could be demonstrated at an indoor materials handling show.

Solution

Under our direction, the motor was removed and replaced with a MARTIN® NTK® Oscillator (NTK-110) with 50 lb. weight on a mount bracket of our design. In addition to the NTK-110 and mount bracket, the customer also purchased the air line accessories required to complete the equipment package.
