Intermec has entered into an aftermarket reselling agreement with NACCO Materials Handling Group, Inc. (NMHG), to provide vehicle-mount computers, handheld bar-code scanners and RFID technology equipment for NMHG's Hyster and Yale brand lift trucks. ADC and RFID-enabled forklifts are now available for order directly from the lift truck brands with Intermec equipment installed, giving customers the convenience of having a single point of contact for service and support. The brands are also authorized to resell Intermec Medallion service contracts.
“The material handling and information technology industries have converged to the extent that customers are recognizing the efficiencies of enabling technology at the point of material handling,” said Jonathan Dawley, manager of business development. “NMHG recognizes that the forklift is becoming an information portal that can deliver efficiencies to customers well beyond the standard features of the truck."
NAACO estimates that approximately 70 percent of warehouse forklifts in North America have mobile computing or data collection equipment installed.
“The opportunity to synergize the forklift and the customer demand for data via mobile computing is undeniable,” Dawley said. “Our partnership with Intermec gives us the capacity to offer our customers the very best of both the material handling and technology worlds."

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
