Automatic Coupling System

Fully Automatic Coupling System

Our automatic coupling system allows changing of various crane lifting attachments/tools by the crane operator from the crane cabin without any help in only a few minutes. The system basically consists of two upper and two lower coupling units. The upper coupling units are attached to a traverse beam of the travelling crane while the lower coupling units can be mounted on a variety of lifting tools such as tongs or magnet beams. Further to the mechanical coupling the system also links all electrical connections necessary for the lifting tool control.

Consequently our automatic coupling system is ideal when several lifting tools are used on the same crane. The system significantly reduces time when changing lifting tools and makes handling a lot more efficient. The automatic coupling system is designed to the customer’s specific requirements and is robustly engineered for the use under the severe conditions encountered in steel mills.
