Cranevision Safety
CRANEVISION provided machine-vision-based crane safety that detects and prevents unsafe lifting conditions, specifically: 1) Side Pulling (off center lifts), and 2) Accidental Snagging of the Hook or Rigging.
Safemove Testing
SAFEMOVE provides collision protection for cranes. The system allows multiple arbitrarily-shaped No-Fly Zones to be configured in the workspace.
Coil Crane with EXPERTOPERATOR
Coil-Moving Crane with EXPERTOPERATOR (EO) crane control. Data from 2012 AISTech Conference presented: Load swing reduction, reduced load positioning time, collision reduction.
Safe Crane at Steel Plant
Bridge crane at steel plant is difficult to drive. The crane is a 10-ton, class D manufactured by Whiting. EXPERTOPERATOR crane control makes the crane easier and safer to drive.
EO at Whiting
40-Ton EOT bridge crane equipped with "EXPERTOPERATOR" motion control. EXPERTOPERATOR is more than just crane anti-sway. It makes it easier to drive the crane, makes positioning more efficient, reduces both load swing and collisions.
"EXPERTOPERATOR" Examples
"EXPERTOPERATOR" crane controller at several industrial installations: Abell-Howe crane at Johnson Controls, 20-ton shipping crane at Southwire, Coil Crane at a steel mill, shop crane at CraneWerks, and Demag Crane at ASAV.
15-Ton Coil Move With EXPERTOPERATOR
EXPERTOPERATOR on 20-ton crane. The operator positioned the load twice. Once with EXPERTOPERATOR enabled, once with EXPERTOPERATOR disabled.
Swing Control Demonstration at Crane Werks
Demonstration of "Expert Operator" crane controller. This anti-sway crane control reduced load swing by 85% - 95%. It works with complicated loads, like long stacks of I-beams. It does not utilize sensors of any kind.
Expert Operator on Demag 5-Ton Crane
Demag crane equipped with CAMotion's "Expert Operator" crane controller. The control intercepts commands from the operator - converts to commands into "expert commands" - and then sends the converted commands to the crane.
Novice to Expert in 30 Seconds
Huge bridge crane at steel manufacturer is difficult to drive for beginner. "Expert Operator" technology transforms beginner into expert in under 30 seconds.
Anti-Sway on 30-Ton Crane
CAMotion's anti-sway system on a 30-ton crane. Here the operator is intentionally trying to induce cable sway, but cannot. CAMotion's anti-sway is passive, sensorless, and accommodates complicated rigging configurations.
Crane Control at Caterpillar
CAMotion's Crane Manipulation System (CMS) for Caterpillar Inc., a leading manufacturer in the heavy machinery industry. CAMotion's CMS provides swing-free motion, the capability for precise and automatic positioning, and protection from collisions.
