APPLICATION

SPICA detects coil edge to position grab prior to handling coil with a hoisting crane.
It can be used in an automated system or as a help to the crane operator with a simple display.
 

MEASUREMENT PRINCIPLE

Two detectors check the edges of the coil. They are situated on each lateral part of the grab. They are placed in order to be exactly on top of the edge when the grab is ready to go down without touching the coil.
The distance to the coil could be approximately 1,5 m to 2,0 m.

A third detector is placed in the middle of the grab with a 90° orientation.
Its functioning is different: it is dedicated to the centering in the other direction.
