CHAM, Switzerland ­­– Following its introduction at bauma in 2022, Wolffkran’s High Speed Positioning System (HiSPS), an electronic crane assistance platform that uses automatic trolley response to reduce sway and load damage, is now available to order.

This automatic response comes from two battery-powered sensors placed on the crane’s trolley and hook block, which detect rope movements and adjust the slewing gear and trolley accordingly. When engaged, the HiSPS can stop swinging loads in seconds, said Wolffkran. The trolley’s automatic response to rope movement also prevents diagonal load pull and optimizes anti-collision systems.

The HiSPS also contains smart technology to help drive operations, including the ability to save hook positions to be reached automatically later, allowing positioning precision even in limited visibility. Movement and positioning data is also collected during operations, which can be integrated into building modelling tools and digital construction systems.
