Application Brief: Metal Stamping Facility Crane Collison Monitoring
Industry: Materials Handling
Application: Metal Stamping Facility Crane Collison Monitoring
Product (Part Number): Crane Sentry® collision detection
Summary: Consider the potential safety concerns, downtime and costs faced when an overhead crane, such as the cranes that handle die changes at a metal stamping facility, collides with equipment on the production floor. Many of these facilities have massive stamping presses, with low overhead clearance and difficult sight lines above the presses.
The objective in this scenario is to prevent risky materials handling activities, like maneuvering a crane with a suspended load over very tall machinery with difficult sight lines. Laser‐View Technologies has helped solve this very problem in metal stamping facilities, and other industries, with the right combination of materials handling expertise, a Crane Sentry® controller that provides the ability to set protected zones around machinery or any other designated areas.
