JLT Mobile Computers Selected by Volvo Car Body Components for Use in High-Tech Manufacturing Facilities
Volvo Car Body Components chooses the rugged VERSO™+ 10 computer to add control and connectivity to forklifts in its Olofström plant in Sweden
Växjö, Sweden, 4th October 2017 * * * JLT Mobile Computers, a leading developer and manufacturer of reliable computers for demanding environments, has started the delivery of JLT VERSO™+ 10 rugged vehicle mounted computers to Volvo Car Body Components. Supplied by logistics solution provider and JLT sales partner Idnet, the rugged mobile computers will be installed on forklifts used at the customers manufacturing plant in Olofström, Sweden. Delivery of the order was in progress as the 100,000th rugged JLT computer rolled off the production line, making Volvo Cars the lucky recipient of JLT’s landmark PC with an exclusive 100,000-hour warranty, guaranteeing more than 4,000 days, or 11 years, of continuous 24/7 use [announced in press release Oct 4th, 2017].
The VERSO+ 10 computer stands out from the competition by integrating the latest PC performance in the industry’s smallest rugged form factor. JLT Mobile Computers achieves this by its attention to detail throughout the design and manufacturing stages. As a leading manufacturer in its own industry, these are values Volvo Cars not only recognizes but expects from its top tier suppliers.
“When the customer, Volvo Car Body Components, was about to select IT equipment for their production facility in Olofström, Sweden, they requested a solution that was designed to withstand the toughest operating conditions,” said Per Redenius, Key Account Manager, Idnet. “We advised them to choose JLT Mobile Computers because we are confident that the rugged computers they develop and supply will provide years of trouble-free service.”
With an Intel® quad-core processor running the latest 64-bit Windows operating system, and a 10.4” scratch-resistant projective capacitive touch screen with JLT PowerTouch™ technology, the VERSO+ 10 computer is ready for the most demanding applications. Thanks to the JLT QuickLock™ feature the computer can easily be mounted and dismounted in a vehicle to simplify service. All these features are packed into the industry’s smallest form factor, making the VERSO+ 10 a perfect choice for installation in tight forklift cabins.
The delivery of the VERSO+ 10 rugged computers to the Olofström plant through Idnet is the first major engagement with globally established Volvo Cars, and positions JLT Mobile Computers well for future expansion as JLT is committed to support them in their continued success.
