Avoiding Slack Rope When Lowering a Lifter to the Ground

By July 27, 2023No Comments

Recently, Laser-View Technologies provided a major aluminum extrusion manufacturer with a new safety system. This consisted of a Slack Detection Sensor on the lower block wired to a controller mounted on the bridge through a cable reel.

This system will stop the Hoist Down motion once the lifting device touches the ground and before the lower block can fall over too far, thus avoiding a slack rope condition. Ultimately this allows the manufacturer to avoid potential damage to their hoist, their loads, and their nearby personnel.

If you’re interested in experiencing the benefits of a Slack Detection Sensor, consider adding this system to your hoist today! Contact Laser-View Technologies to get started.
