Lift platform – lift height

Side supports against tipping over are installed for lift trucks and lift work platforms. The crane or the platform can only be put into operation when the supports are completely extended so that there is also no danger of tipping in the case of…

Obstacle recognition on climbing robots

The scanCONTROL 2600 sensors used form a barrier above or below the detector depending on the climbing direction. Due to the detector size, a correspondingly large measuring range of 100 mm in the X and Z directions is required. The sensors are…

Lift height measurement in heavy-duty lifters

The supports on bridges must be renewed from time to time. The supports bear the weight of the bridge superstructure and absorb vibrations and expansions of the bridge. As the properties of the rubber bearings change over time, they must be…

Reduced risk of tipping with loading wagons

In order to increase the safety of loading wagons, automatic braking systems are used. The brakes are activated if the lateral acceleration of a loading wagon becomes too high due to high speeds and tight curves and if the wagon threatens to tip…
