Finnish crane manufacturer introduces new ARTG system to container handling industry
Konecranes launched its new Automated RTD (ARTG) system to the container handling industry at TOC Europe in the Dutch city of Rotterdam last week.
In a statement, the Finnish crane manufacturer said that the new system will provide RTG terminal operators with operational cost savings, greater productivity, increased predictability and increased safety.
The new ARTG system is based on the company’s 16-wheel RTG and boasts a Remote Operating Station with a specially developed Graphical User Interface (GUI), and an IT system that interfaces with the customer’s Terminal Operating System (TOS).
The holistic combination of its steel structure and Active Load Control system copes with the wide range of surface variations inherent in RTG container yards and with the variations inherent when a crane of this size runs freely on rubber tires, according to Konecranes.
