Visual position aid increases safety
Coil cranes and hoists simplify storage, loading and unloading when handling coils. However, when the lifting equipment is incorrectly positioned, it can lead to collisions and damage the coils. For steel processors, these incidents may result in substantial financial losses. XtrAlign positioning lasers from LAP can help prevent the risk of damage. Laser lines give visual aid to the operator to safely position the lifting devices. Mounted directly on coil lifters/grabs/tongs, the lasers project the hoist’s best position onto the ground. If all lines are visible to the operator, the device can safely be lowered.
Lasers with line or cross optics are most suitable for the application. The lasers can be manually focused for optimum projection visibility and adjusted without tools in any mounting position.
