TiltWatch Plus

The ShockWatch TiltWatch Plus provides a 360º monitoring of the degree and orientation of a product that has been tilted and provides a more significant analysis of the tilt. It indicates if a product has tilted left, right or overturned throughout transit. The sensor is automatically armed by removing the adhesive backing from the unit. When the shipment is tilted over 30º or flipped over, the TiltWatch Plus will show the angle and direction of the tilt or, if upended, by where the ball bearing is housed.

Tilting is a common occurrence with products during shipping or transit. Some goods may incur severe damages when shipped tilted. Implementation of this damage prevention programme provides psychological reinforcement of proper handling procedures and changes the behaviour of material handlers. It provides an obvious deterrent to mishandling throughout the supply chain.

A key element in the success of the Tilt indicators is the companion tools available. Used in conjunction with the TiltWatch products, these tools include Companion LabelsAlert StickersAlert Tape and supporting documentation. This packaging constitutes a highly effective damage reduction and prevention solution. Please watch our video to learn more about how to use the TiltWatch Plus.
