Tandem Operation

Tandem operation of cranes (such as bridge cranes / overhead cranes) or trolleys for the ARATEC Positioning Solution System – increased functionality and operating efficiency of your installation.

The tandem operation of cranes or trolleys increases the functionality and the operating efficiency of your installation.

The module enables two independently driven bridge cranes to operate in tandem. Using this method two cranes or trolleys can transport certain goods like a single machine and the permissible skew is freely configurable.

Excellent Reliability, Optimum Travel Profile and Minimum Wear

Production and warehousing facilities usually have a parallel layout where multiple conveyor systems are installed side by side. The cranes operate independently of each other within their particular workspace and the dimension of transported goods is limited to this working space. Cranes that are transporting long goods, for instance, can quickly reach the available space limits as well as their rated load capacity.

During regular operation, cranes travel independently of each other. With the ARATEC Positioning Solution System from PSI Technics, two cranes can now be coupled to operate in tandem mode for the transport of unusually dimensioned goods or loads that exceed the cranes’ rated capacity. ARATEC couples the cranes automatically by squaring both machines, driving them to identical positions. Once coupled, the cranes move in tandem, while simultaneously compensating for certain irregularities, such as those due to mechanical differences like slightly different travelling wheels, motors or drives. Once the positioning task has been completed, the system can be switched back to regular operation as needed.

Option 3, Master mode:
The master crane moves to the position of the subordinate crane.

Option 2, Subordinate mode:
The subordinate crane moves to the position of the master crane.

Option 1, Master-Subordinate mode:
Both cranes move to a predefined position.

FLP6000AOC – Advanced Oscillation Control

The ARATEC's FLP6000AOC software reduces mast oscillations – even of highly dynamic stacker cranes – to a minimum. The test setup shows that the ARATEC Positioning Solution System with enabled FLP6000AOC compensates for mast oscillations in near-real time, even when the oscillations are caused by external disturbances.
