Material handling

Material handling Equipment is used for transporting goods horizontally inside or outside a warehouse. Counterbalanced trucks, warehouse technology and walker devices move the goods flow, while both the turnover of goods and cost pressures continually increase.

An important parameter for meeting the requirements of manufacturers in terms of:      

  • handling capacity and speed
  • safety
  • user benefits
  • component standards close to those of the automotive industry
  • economic viability

is the prompt, contact-free measurement of rotational speed in modern material handling equipments. This is particularly the case in equipment with AC electric drive units. RHEINTACHO speed sensors perform this task to the highest levels of customer satisfaction.

The company has focused on the measurement of rotational speed for over 116 years; this is reflected in the extent to which RHEINTACHO speed sensors exceed the industry standards.

With our well-founded technical and specialist know-how we can also provide support to you, even over longer project times, until a successful outcome is reached.
