The renowned German vehicle manufacturer Liebherr has introduced a brilliant grab for the mobile harbor cranes. This smart grab has been named as Smart-Grip that is said to have the ability for boosting productivity over twenty five percent. The company has launched a game changing technology that functions as a smart system that has the ability of optimizing the rate of grab filling in an automatic smart way. The smart-grip offers a variety of benefits such as zero overloads and exceptional performance.
The new technology introduced by Liebherr functions intelligently for increasing the filling rate and helps in avoiding overloads and saves on hardware. Conventionally, just seventy percent of the capacity of the grab is utilized because of sup-optimal angles of the grab and a material density that varies frequently. Attempting to get the 2 in the right way must be a tough challenge for the operators and demands a collection of various grabs to serve to different kinds of materials. Because of extensive and keen analysis, the company strived hard for bringing up the perfect model of grab-fill for a variety of material densities for optimizing the filling rates. The latest high tech system also includes an automatic component that adjusts the behavior automatically to suit the compression, bulk density, and granularity and other related criteria.
When the grab moves through the first few cycles of load, the filling is optimized automatically from seventy percent to the maximum capability available keeping in view the size of the grab, the load of the crane along with out-reach. The company states that the intelligent system can achieve the maximum rate of the grab filling in the initial 7 cycles. This system also works for preventing the overload which can result at the time of pulling load at the grab of a sticky kind of material. This leads to the overload of the crane and leads to shutdown of the pending work unless the system is reset. The mentioned special feature improves productivity on one hand and extends the longevity of the crane on the other hand by attempting to avoid the stress resulted by the sudden overload shutdowns and saves time and fuel.
The smart-grip avoids overloading automatically and besides this the crane has the feature of manual operating and can be operated for different kinds of loads in a manual way. If an operator of the crane wants to load forty ton truck for instance, he can manually set the system to fill the grab up with forty ton. Isn’t it amazing? The intelligent system might also be utilized for cranes manufactured by Liebherr in old times. The installation of the system has been previewed to be simple, easy, and quick.
Smart-grip is the ideal solution for optimizing grab filling rates. Liebherr has collected in-depth data and has done keen analysis and because of this the company has managed to deduce the ideal grab fill model via data mining. The system adjusts automatically and recognizes the bulk density and compression itself. It recognized the current frame conditions as well including the impression depth and kind of grab. The system makes sure that the grab fill rate is above seventy percent. Within 7 cycles, the grab’s total capacity is utilized.
