Multitel Pagliero chooses Gefran to increase the safety of work at height

March 28, 2022

Elevating Work Platforms (EWPs) are essential tools to facilitate and speed up interventions that require the achievement of important heights in different areas, from construction to plant engineering and maintenance. In these applications it is essential to ensure maximum operator safety, hence the need to rely on an extremely reliable sensor fleet. This is one of the main reasons that led Multitel Pagliero S.p.Aan Italian company specialised in the production and marketing of truck-mounted and tracked aerial platforms – to choose the quality of the Gefran pressure and position transducers.

"When it comes to safeguarding people in the workplace and in the specific case, at height, there are no margins of error" says Fabio Pagliero, CEO of Multitel Pagliero SpA. "From components to final welding, the efficiency of our aerial platforms must be 100%. Sensors, in particular, play a key role in ensuring the best performance of the vehicle, guaranteeing the highest degree of operator protection. Requirements perfectly satisfied by Gefran solutions, used today on all our models. The high standards of repeatability, linearity and signal certainty allow us to give the platforms the desired speed and movement characteristics".

Gefran offers a complete package of sensors for the lifting equipment's main movements. These products are particularly robust and ideal for work vehicles typically subject to shock, vibration, pressure and temperature peaks. In particular, the pressure control of the Multitel Pagliero machines' hydraulic circuit is entrusted to the KH probes, SIL2 certified, with a film sensing element deposited on a steel membrane, latest generation SMD electronics and a compact design, made entirely of stainless steel.

To the pressure measurement the GSF wire position transducers and the GIB inclinometers are added, equipped with high precision MEMS technology, thanks to which it is possible to determine the extension and angular position of the operator cabin and prevent the overturning of the vehicle.

In addition to the products in the catalogue, the Gefran Team has developed in co-design with the Technical Office of Multitel Pagliero a series of solutions with customised mechanics, with the aim of making the individual components perfectly integrated with the machines.
