Roanoke, Va. (January 15, 2015)
TMEIC has received an order to supply Maxview Smart Move™ System on two RTG cranes at DP World Vancouver Terminal.
DP World has chosen TMEIC’s crane automation expertise for several of the world’s newest terminals.
The Maxview Smart Move™ System is tailored for RTG and RMG cranes.
It dynamically measures the spreader position and the objects below the crane, providing trolley slowdown and stop inputs to the crane control system to help prevent spreader collisions and stack topples.
The Maxview® system uses a laser scanner and Maxview® software modules to measure and continuously update the profile of containers and other obstructions under the crane.
Maxview Smart Move™ creates a slowdown envelope around the spreader, and limits the hoist or trolley speed as required to prevent hard contact during operation, reducing damage and operating noise and increasing your yard crane productivity.
“RTGs may not move fast, but they can cause a lot of damage when topples occur… and they do.
We at TMEIC are very pleased to partner with DP World in the application of Maxview Smart Move to their RTGs.
This leading edge technology will prevent box topples and provide soft landings for every move.” Alan Peterson, Global Sales Leader
“DP World Vancouver has been utilizing Maxview® laser scanning systems for over 5 years on our quay cranes.
Throughout this time we have realized a significant reduction in quay crane downtime and cargo damage.
Applying this technology to RTGs is the next step for us in creating a safer work environment in the yard, reducing damage and improving operator efficiency.
The TMEIC team has a proven track record in delivering innovative technologies that are supported well and make sound commercial sense.“ Joel Werner, Manager, Engineering & Maintenance.
