Trône Seating will bring a world first to CeMAT 2018 in Hanover. The fully electrically adjustable forklift seat remembers the preferences of its user and ensures that the seat is always correctly adjusted. Various optional and unique features, such as vibration measurement and the Wake-Up Call, complete the special concept.
After several years of development, the time has now come: on 23 April, at the CeMAT trade fair in Hanover (Hall 26, stand G17), Trône Seating will unveil the TRÔNE Memory seat, the first electrically adjustable forklift seat with memory on the market. “Sitting well on the forklift is vital for the driver,” says director/owner Frans-Jozef van Seumeren of Trône Seating. “This means not only providing a good seat with all the relevant adjustment options and shock absorption, but also ensuring that the driver always can rely on those correct settings. Particularly when a truck has several users, the correct re-adjustment of the seat often fails.”
Healthy and safe working conditions
Thanks to its special character, the completely newly developed Trône lift truck seat makes an active contribution to healthy and safe working conditions. It comes with 4 electric motors as standard, which can be operated via the intuitive button operation on the side of the chair. All ergonomically important positions can be adjusted, such as forward/reverse, backrest inclination, seat length adjustment and seat tilt. An optional 5th motor controls the adjustment of the lumbar support. With a choice of seat and back cheeks, it is easy to adjust to the working conditions. Of course, the Trône itself automatically adjusts the correct level of shock absorption to the driver’s body weight, but it is also available with semi-automatic damping.
Unique applications and software
Unique to the new forklift seat is the software and associated optional applications. For example, the Trône has a memory for personal settings (up to 999 drivers) and can easily be accessed via smartphone or linked to the digicard, transponder or truck activation log-in code.
In addition, the seat offers Track & Trace functionality, driving behaviour monitoring, vibration measurement, service module and a Wake-up call. Frans-Josef van Seumeren: “Even though you are sitting on this chair like a monarch, the Wake-Up Call works like a reminder. He warns not to have the same sitting and working posture for hours in a row, but to make other movements as well. The Trône Memory chair is a serious step towards the prevention of work-related complaints.”
Expertise and advice
The Dutch firm Trône Seating BV not only offers the delivery of the Trône Memory chair, it also offers expertise and advice when it comes to good and safe sitting. Although the company name is young, the team has over 42 years of experience in the engineering, composition and sales of ergonomically optimal sitting and working comfort.
