How to Optimise Vision for Crane Drivers Whilst Handling Oversized Cargo

How to Optimise Vision for Crane Drivers Whilst Handling Oversized Cargo

One of the most common and annoying problems that crane operators face occurs when they must handle oversized cargo since they are forced to use Over Height Frames, and this greatly hinders their vision. This is so because the OHFs get between the spreader and the flat rack that they have to load / unload.

Hitting the corner pieces becomes very difficult, thus disrupting the usual loading and unloading rhythms, spoiling the overall efficiency of the terminal.

To avoid this, TEC presents its OHF BA-030ET that includes a system made up of two cameras and a screen installed in the cabin where the crane operator can see an image of the Flat Rack corners and thus hit the mark without interference, increasing the pace and speed, and efficiency of loading or unloading.
