R&M Materials Handling Offers New ControlMaster Anti-Sway System
R&M Materials Handling, Inc., Springfield, Ohio, has introduced the ControlMaster Anti-Sway System R&M, a new QX modular crane package option designed to eliminate sway while moving and lifting loads. The system automatically adjusts the crane’s traveling movements by using a mathematical calculation to estimate load swing. The calculation is based on the distance between the center of the rope drum and the load (pendulum length).
The ControlMaster Anti-Sway System maintains, accelerates, decelerates, or reverses the travel speeds and directions to keep the hoist directly over top of the load, allowing operators to move a load from one place to another without creating load sway, regardless of lift height.
