At this year’s AISTech conference, Laser-View Technologies’ President, Steven Lubeck, presented “Collision Detection: Safety Improvements to High-Bay/Low-Bay Overhead Cranes”. He discussed the safety risks involved in utilizing dual-elevation runways with two cranes. Then he listed various techniques available for detecting and preventing overhead crane snags and collisions in such configurations.
One technique he discussed was the use of a High Bay/Low Bay Overhead Crane Sentry® Collision Detection System. Systems like these use laser sensors to monitor bridge position so operators can make sure that the hoist is raised before high bay cranes can run past the low bay cranes. It also ensures that the cranes on the same elevated runway don’t collide with each other.
For those seeking to enhance anti-collision safety and bolster the reliability of their overhead crane system, implementing such advanced systems as these can significantly amplify the benefits of your existing setup.
