Positioning the trolley

The KH53 is perfectly suited for positioning the traveling trolley on a crane. It provides good repeatability of up to 0.3 mm, and long reading distances of up to 55 mm. It is extremely rugged in the event of shocks and vibrations, and stands up to the affects of severe weather. With the position data of the traveling crane, it is possible to very precisely load BigBags (flexible intermediate bulk containers) with little deviation. Due to its wear-free measurement design, the positioning systems can be reliably used for many years and enable high productivity of the crane with low maintenance costs.
