January 2010 – Crane tracking system modernized during production

At the slab yard of the ThyssenKrupp Heavy Plate Mill the existing Crane Tracking System was modernized in a very short time during operation of the mill. The existing hardware of another supplier was already 10 years old and no spare parts are available anymore. 3 cranes had to be equipped with modern Panel PCs, and the peripheral devices for position detection of the cranes needed to be modernized by up-to-date technolgy based on Industrial Ethernet.

LogoTek developed a new warehouse management client software for the cranes, that provided the functionality of the old system, as well as several modernizations and additions of functionality. A modification of the existing yard management database software could be avoided.
