Introducing the latest addition to our innTilt family: the TLE Tilt Machine that complements its predecessor, the Tilt Testing Tool. Both machines are expertly designed to adhere to the stringent requirements of the EN 12195 standard.

This standard is pivotal in ensuring that cargo securing equipment meets the highest safety and performance criteria. The new tool, like its forerunner, is engineered with precision and is dedicated to providing reliable, accurate testing results. This advancement represents our commitment to innovation and excellence in the field of transport simulation testing, ensuring that our clients have access to the most advanced technology in compliance with international standards.

Introducing the EN12195-1 Standard

In the rapidly evolving world of supply chain and goods transportation, load safety and stability have emerged as paramount concerns. Industry professionals are increasingly focusing on achieving secure and efficient transportation, recognizing that a poorly secured load can lead to not only regulatory fines but also accidents and substantial financial losses. This heightened focus on load security has catapulted load testing to a prominent position within the road transportation industry, especially in light of new regulatory frameworks like Directive 2014/47/EU, which mandates safe shipment of goods.

Moreover, the introduction of a new European standard, EN12195-1, specifically targeting cargo and load securing, marks a significant step forward. This standard aims to enhance load stability while bolstering safety across the supply chain and logistics sectors. As the industry adapts to these changes, compliance with these standards becomes crucial for ensuring safe, efficient, and regulation-compliant transportation of goods.

More specifically, annex D2 of EN 12195 Standard describes the tilting test as a method to evaluate load stability and validate the lashing systems for road transportation.

 EN12195-1 Standard

The EN 12195-1 standard is a European norm that specifies requirements for securing cargo during road transport. It covers the principles of cargo securing, including the calculation of forces acting on the cargo and the methods for securing it. This standard is essential for ensuring that goods are transported safely, minimizing the risk of accidents caused by shifting or falling cargo.

Ensure EN 12195 Standard Compliance with the Advanced TLE Tilt Machine

Safe Load Testing Technologies has innovatively enhanced load stability in transportation with the TLE Tilt Machine, a sophisticated solution for performing tilt tests on palletized units. This tool stands out due to its ability to deliver simple, fast, and repeatable tilt tests with consistently accurate results​​. It represents a significant technological advancement over other market alternatives, requiring fewer elements for such tests and ensuring high repeatability, making it ideal for packaging optimization and quality control​​.

New validating tool to evaluate load stability in line with the EN 12195 standard

The TLE Tilt Machine is specifically designed to automatically perform tilt tests and measure load deformation using high-precision sensors. This data can be easily exported for analysis, and the machine features an independent and intuitive controller for test parameter configuration and execution​​.

Additionally, it can be combined with the innVision ST vision measurement system, which includes a high-speed camera and software for measuring load deformation. This integration significantly reduces analysis times by over 90% compared to standard manual procedures​​.

In line with the EN 12195 standard, which ensures load retention in road transport, the TLE Tilt Machine employs Annex D2 testing to validate lashing systems. The machine achieves an equivalent acceleration based on the coefficient of friction between the surface and the element under study, adhering to the specified standard requirements​​.

It’s widely used by transportation and logistics companies across Europe as a guideline for safe and effective cargo handling and transportation. Compliance with this standard is critical for maintaining safety standards in the transportation industry.

The machine is available in two models: the TLF500 for loads up to 1500 kg and the TLF200 for loads up to 2000 kg, with both offering a maximum tilt angle of 30 degrees and a maximum tilt of 0.5 g​​.

This flexibility and adaptability make the TLE Tilt Machine a crucial tool for ensuring load stability and compliance with industry standards in the transportation sector.

It can measure load deformation using computer vision, greatly enhancing the efficiency of analysis​​.

Moreover, the TLE Tilt Machine assists in:

Assessing packaging resistance in controlled environments.
Measuring packaging material properties under static accelerations.
Reducing packaging material use.
Enhancing understanding of the distribution process, enabling modifications to reduce exposure to transportation threats.
Facilitating quicker, more accurate decision-making and improved response times in package design and distribution processes.
Decreasing risks while maintaining product quality and properties​​.

Load Stability Testing Benefits

With this new tool, Safe Load Testing Technologies has a triple objective:

Increase transport safety: to increase road safety thanks to better load stability, avoiding, this way, numerous accidents caused by load elements falling during transportation.
Cost optimization: Packaging material optimization not only concerns the cost of the raw materials in question. Reducing the number of losses due to product falling or damage during transport or handling is also indicative of packaging optimization. A holistic vision when designing the product + packaging is very important. It should be considered that the product + packaging will be transported and there will be more and more different channels for distribution. Optimizing product packaging for the distribution channel allows for a drastic cost optimization too.
Enhance sustainability: besides, thanks to the optimization in the use of materials, we can help the environment and we contribute in a positive way to take care of our planet. Any company whose product is susceptible to damage in transport or whose pallets are susceptible to deformation endangering transport, now has the possibility to verify their pallets in their own facilities in a fast, reliable and professional way, optimizing them to increase security, contribute to sustainability and increase logistics and cost efficiency.
