RDS logs the weight at RSC

12 December 2012

The Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) has chosen RDS South West to supply Liftlog 100 on-board weighing systems for counterbalance fork trucks used in its workshop and pre-assembly building.

The Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) has chosen RDS South West to supply Liftlog 100 on-board weighing systems for counterbalance fork trucks used in its workshop and preassembly building.

Central to the RSC six week, five-play residency at New York's Park Avenue Armory is the transportation of a full-scale replica auditorium of the Royal Shakespeare Theatre.

Designed, engineered and built by the RSC's in-house team to comply with both European and US building legislation, the auditorium is a four tier, 19m high construction made up of individual seating units with built in fork channels that allow them to be easily weighed by the forklift installed Liftlog 100.

Previously the team used a more complex jib and load cell arrangement.

This was time consuming to install and remove from the forklift as it was required to move between weighing and lifting tasks. The non-intrusive fit of the Liftlog 100 has no impact on rated lift capacity and the trucks are now free to operate as normal.

Commenting on the effectiveness of the system, Gary Wright, logistics manager, said: "The ease of use and reasonable price tag of Lift 100 has significantly speeded up the process."
