Force Transducer System for two Overhead Travelling Cranes

Overhead Travelling Crane Project

When a crane company needed to lift an object that weighed 57t with two overhead travelling cranes that each was able to lift 30t, the company used a force transducer system from Vetec.


The force transducer system

The system consisted of:
- Two displays
- Two load pins
- One remote control


The system was able to measure the weight on the two overhead travelling cranes. The weights on the two cranes were then shown on each of the two displays. Furthermore, the remote control could control the crane.


The advantages of the system were increased workplace safety and efficiency, due to the fact that the solution gave a precise overview of the lift. In addition, it also made sure that the two cranes lifted equally and didn’t overload.
