Overhead Crane Position Measurement

Bridge Cranes Integrate Laser Distance Sensors at Steel Mills

Steel mills producing large coils of sheet stock store their inventory on the floors of huge warehouses.  The large, heavy coils are picked and placed using overhead cranes, often referred to as bridge cranes.  These cranes ride the length of the building along two, parallel rails.  A hoist moves on the trolley and lowers a hook or other mechanical grabber to move objects.  Operators control the crane’s movement via an overhead control cabin or by remote-control from on manufacturing floor.

It is designed to enable a user, propelled by gravity, to traverse from the top to the bottom of the inclined cable by holding on or attaching to the freely moving pulley. Zip-line tours are becoming popular vacation activities and ride managers often implement a high speed camera system to photograph riders during their decent.
