Developing history of remote control for tower crane

Views: 0     Author: Site Editor     Publish Time: 2021-09-09      Origin: Site

Radio remote controls are now standard equipment on most self-erecting tower cranes, and are even becoming common in some parts of the world for top slewing units. Perhaps you are wondering how they became like a complete crane cab in a box.

This passage is going to talk about the followings of remote control for tower crane:

  •  At the beginning

  •  Developing progress

  •  About us


1) At the beginning

In Europe, remote control is only used for small top-swing tower cranes up to 100 or 120 tons. The limiting factor was that operators of larger cranes needed to feel how the crane would react to the load so as not to operate too roughly.

With digital readouts sandwiched between the controls, the remotes began to look more and more like load moment indicators in the cabin of a mobile crane. They tell the user how much the load is, how much weight is a percentage of the maximum, how high the load is, and even how strong the wind is blowing.

What is remarkable is how quickly this happened. Tower cranes have moved from simple motors to computer control in about 20 years - perhaps half the time it took to develop mobile cranes.

Remote controls played a key role in this development. Early on, crane owners realized that small cranes weren't always busy, so operators using remote controls could help with rigging and other field work during downtime. While of course more costly, the addition of a remote control could save an entire payroll.


2) Developing progress

Use these remote controls and then the driver can do other things. If you have a remote control, you can walk next to the load. If you had to gently lower the load, you could stand next to the load and have a good view of everything.

These early remotes would only replicate the crane's main levers. Remotes were an aftermarket business.

But now remote controls are no longer a special thing. 20 years ago, remote control of cranes that could be operated without cables was some kind of magic. Now it has become the standard for all crane applications, especially tower cranes, truck-mounted cranes and mobile crushers.

A key milestone was the decision by manufacturers to start working directly with remote control suppliers to develop cranes. These critical decisions were made because the market moved toward radio remote controls and manufacturers gradually realized this should be offered as standard. Then the introduction of a standard remote control was a gradual process. It's not about cost; the market is looking for solutions and we think we should follow suit.

This initiative is important because it integrates the remote control into the technical architecture of the crane. Since manufacturers buy one unit for each crane, remote control manufacturers can expect larger orders. By adding from the aftermarket to the OEM business, radio remote controls become mainstream.

Another feature of this new arrangement is technical cooperation. When OEMs began working with wireless remote control design engineers, the remotes became higher performing products.


3) About us

The company has passed certifications in most major industrial countries around the world, such as the European Union, the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, Japan, Canada, Italy, Portugal, and Belgium. The products are exported to dozens of countries overseas and received unanimous praise from customers.

We pursue the development concept of safety, reliability and efficiency, and continue to innovate and introduce more new products to meet more customer requirements. It is believed that in the future, LCC brand remote controls will be favored by more consumers. If you are interested in our controllers, you can visit our product detail page, we are always here to help you.
