LASE releases strad positioning tool

20 Mar 2017

LASE's positioning tool can be retrofitted

Safety specialist LASE has launched a product to measure the exact positioning of straddle carriers under ship-to-shore cranes.

LaseSPC - Straddle Positioning Crane offers laser-based positioning through a 2D measurement system consisting of two 2D laser scanners mounted on the water and landside sill beam.

The straddle carrier is equipped with reference markers on all four portal legs and when under or on approach to the crane, the measurement system detects it and calculates its exact position.

It can offer exact positioning of up to two straddle carriers in a multi-lane operation and is available for retrofit on existing cranes.
