COMING SOON - A New Way to Load and Unload Your Pickup - PowerLoader by MasterHaul



Coming in 2020
PowerLoader Loads and Unloads the Truck Automatically! 

Masterhaul is a new company with some new ideas of how to make far better use of a pickup truck or typical service body. The product offerings include the ability to make use of a wide range of optional modules that allow maximum use of a pickup truck bed or service body. Here are some of the features and how they can benefit your business.

The PowerLoader eliminates the need for additional resources required by existing truck mounted lift gate products.

  • No need for workers to transfer heavy cargo from a liftgate into the truck bed.
  • No need to purchase utility trailers to tow products that don’t fit on a liftgate, e.g. large power equipment, construction materials, pallets and many more.
  • Enhanced Productivity– a quicker job site process equates to more jobs being completed per day, and more revenue being generated per week, per month, per year! A great ROI
  •  Mobility – ability to take/deliver resources to work place without having to transfer and / or utilize another form of transport. Offload the truck in seconds when empty truck is needed 
  •  Enhanced Safety – No human requirements for lifting or moving loads into the bed 
  • Double + the load size capability – Load platform is same size as truck bed, NOT the tailgate
  •  Optional and Unique Dump feature – Not offered by others
  •  Optional conveyor belt feature – Automatically drops the load off at destination
  •  Quick and easy to install - No drilling required
  •  Switch & utilize for multiple trucks - Unlike Liftgates that are a permanent fixture once installed
  •  Safer Weight Distribution v Liftgate: The PowerLoader allows easy positioning of the cargo forward in the cargo area. Cargo loaded by liftgates must be re-handled to move it forward. Improper cargo location may reduce steering and braking performance and increase rear axle system fatigue.
  •  Remote Control– For all operational systems
  •  Reduced Injuries caused by getting in and out of the truck bed
  • ·         Slipping off the Liftgate
  • ·         Injury by Falling Cargo
  • ·         Being injured by Liftgate Mechanism

FORD COLLABORATION WITH GRAVITY SKETCH INTRODUCES CO-CREATION FEATURE, ALLOWING DESIGNERS ACROSS GLOBE TO WORK IN SAME VIRTUAL REALITY SPACE

  • Ford is the first automaker to work with Gravity Sketch – a 3D VR tool that enables designers to come up with more human-centric designs
  • Co-Creation feature in Gravity Sketch gives global designers at Ford the ability to use the same 3D virtual reality design space, improving collaborative efforts and real time decision-making when designing vehicles.
  • Co-Creation has the ability to save designers time and reduce the requirement for global travel during the development process of creating new vehicles

DEARBORN, Mich., May 6, 2019 – A designer from Shanghai and another from Dearborn step into a virtual design space together to make changes to a global vehicle design. Both walk around the 3D design, review it and make changes on the fly. Once finished, the two remove their VR headsets and return to their separate workspaces -- thousands of miles apart.

Thanks to Co-Creation, a feature developed by Gravity Sketch in collaboration with Ford, designers across the globe can create, collaborate and evaluate vehicle designs with one another in real time without leaving their physical workspace.

Ford is the first automaker to work with Gravity Sketch – a 3D virtual reality tool that enables designers to create more human-centric vehicle design. Designers trade in their sketchpads for a headset and controllers to become immersed in virtual reality, imitating gestural interactions through motion tracking that replicates sketching with pen and paper. Designers can draw, rotate, expand and compress a 3D sketch. The Co-Creation feature allows multiple designers to engage in content creation, while making these real-time adjustments.

Consumer purchasing trends differ in each global region, meaning an attractive design in one region may not be as appealing in another. Co-Creation gives designers from different regions the opportunity to come together in one space and review a 3D sketch to make important decisions earlier in the design process.

”The Co-Creation feature adds more voices to the conversation in a virtual environment, which results in more efficient design work that may help accelerate a vehicle program’s development,” says Ford Design Manager Michael Smith.

Gravity Sketch allows designers to speed the process from weeks to hours, skipping the 2D stage and working with a 3D model from the beginning. Through Co-Creation, a designer can transfer to another designer’s point of view within virtual reality to see from his or her perspective. This is especially helpful when training other designers in Gravity Sketch.

Across five global Ford design studios, dozens of interior and exterior designers are now experimenting with Gravity Sketch for workflow feasibility and its capability for real-time co-creation and collaboration. Shifting to a model that designs and evaluates in virtual reality could revolutionize the entire process by drastically reducing development time and allowing for more 3D representations in the evaluation stage.

“Our collaboration with Ford designers has enabled us to get immersed in their creative process and discover ways to help fine-tune this application to better suit their needs so they can build the best possible vehicles for their customers,” said Oluwaseyi Sosanya, Gravity Sketch CEO & Co-founder.
