What does a foundry package forklift have to do with the boy scout motto, “Be Prepared?” The motto reminds everyone to be prepared for workplace environments by learning beforehand what you will need in all the environments your forklift will work in. Another saying comes to mind, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound cure.”
“The Heat Is On” is more than just a popular song by Eagles lead singer Glenn Frey, it’s also a great metaphor for forging and casting applications. And the heat isn’t just on the street, it’s also on your forklift and on forklift operators. Luckily, there are a number of ways you can combat these high temperatures to increase productivity and reduce the possibility of premature wear on your equipment.
