We have developed a smart boom control system for mobile cranes that is being tested by crane manufacturer Mesera Cranes Finland in their prototype crane. The new Tip Control-system for cranes is based on our xCrane control system, which is a turnkey electrical control system for mobile cranes.
A crane with a tip control system automatically moves several cylinders with one joystick movement. In other words operator controls the tip of the boom instead of controlling lift boom, outer boom and extension individually.
The tip control system makes crane work easier and more efficient, which leads to more productive operation every hour and every day. It´s easy to learn and use for the unexperienced crane operators and offers clear advantages also for experienced users by increasing well-being at work.
