Optimum precision on the Palfinger loading crane
Radio control by hand movements: pilot in the field.
At the stonemason company Karl Mietz, pilot has already been in use now for several months on a Palfinger crane for the transportation of stones. The operator can easily control the slewing gear and main arm functions by hand movements; the telescopic and jib arms are operated with the mini joystick of the transmitter.
“Considerable work simplification”
“With this new control, we can operate the entire crane with just one hand”, Tobias Mietz, manager of the family company from Crailsheim, Germany, reports. “This means that we always have a hand free for other tasks, and makes work so much simpler.”
