Because we work so closely with our customers, we have become experts in customization. We can modify our Stringo vehicle movers in many different ways to ensure that they fully meet our customers’ needs.
We provide a range from minor tweaks to full machine overhauls with brand-new added features. Modifications may be needed due to new customer requirements or because something in a customer’s environment necessitates new functionality.
Here are a three different examples of custom solutions that we have provided to different customers to meet their special needs.
1. Safety requirement: Charge without lifting the cover
We have modified vehicle movers for a Japanese customer so that the machines could be charged without having to lift the cover. Normally, the cover needs to be lifted to access the charging inlet, but, by modifying the machines, it is now possible to charge without lifting the cover, which meets this particular customer’s safety requirements.
2. Safety requirement: Additional foot guard
For another customer, we incorporated an additional foot guard on two Stringo 550s. Normally, the foot guard is located around the drive unit, but the foot guard on these specific machines now covers almost half of the vehicle mover. This modification also stemmed from the customer’s requirements for safety.
3. Efficiency: Side slot for quicker battery replacement
A third example involves a 550 for which the customer needed the ability to exchange the battery for a fully charged replacement without suffering downtime. By building a slot on the side through which the battery can be removed, instead of needing to be lifted upward as before, we were able to provide a practical solution to quickly replace a depleted battery. With this customization of the Stringo 550, battery changing has never been easier. Changing out a dead battery for a fully charged battery just takes a few short minutes, which means the customer can keep its Stringo working hard over multiple shifts.
Minor tweak or full customization? You got it
“When you order a vehicle mover from us, we help you to choose the model, accessories, and modifications you need. We offer full customization, which basically means that, for us, everything is possible; from minor changes to fully customized machines with brand-new designs and added features,” says Magnus Grafström, CTO of Stringo.
