The computing demands of food processing applications are unique and Glacier Computer fixed-mount and forklift mounted devices are specifically designed to meet these challenges.
Glacier rugged computing hardware has allowed food processing companies to bring traceability, formula verification, and weighing directly to the manufacturing floor. Glacier units give workers on the plant floor direct access to critical information while also allowing for instant data input imperative to the food processing industry.
The Glacier S9000 boasts a large high-bright 15” display and touchscreen housed in a stainless steel enclosure. The S9000 is sealed to exacting industry standards and can be cleaned under high pressure by an array of food processing industry disinfectants. The S9000 has an Intel based computing architecture and runs all Windows applications while communicating wirelessly or via hard-wired Ethernet. All I/O ports are sealed and are engineered to withstand any mandatory industry cleaning procedures.
The S9000 engineers designed the enclosure to be smooth and free of any grooves or crevices thus easy to clean and preventing the ultimate potential build-up of any harmful bacteria.
Glacier food industry customers also have important data collection and transmission needs away from the literal food production itself. Demands including ingredient delivery, finished goods movement to a warehouse bin location, customer order fulfillment, and loading of trailers, all require rugged data collection equipment. Glacier’s Kodiak all-in-one forklift computer is designed specifically for lift truck mounting including forklifts, stock pickers and pallet trucks. The Kodiak is a PC-based computing platform with wireless network connectivity, touchscreen interface and Intel processor. Forklift operators receive orders and instructions while then transmitting updates and status on the forklift computer. The Kodiak’s internal 12-48VDC converter and integrated mounting system make it the ideal choice for forklift computing.
