STORA ENSO WOOD
The crane’s task is to automatically place the perpendicular interim storage bundles into interim storage for completion by CLT timber parts. The bundles are laid on the ground according to a grid set out in the interim storage area and taken to the production unit as required.
Opened bundles are brought back to the interim storage area. The bundles are picked up by the Voith fork hanger with rotatable forks. In order to be able to hold an off-centre load on the hanger, the hanger is attached via 4 ropes set out in a rectangle.
Stabilisation is achieved by placing a pin in the uppermost hoist setting as the crane and trolley only travel in the uppermost hoist setting.
The crane receives the tasks from the production control system and then performs them independently. One of the characteristics of this project is an access way that virtually crosses the warehouse that can only be crossed via two bridges with the crane.
This protective area is maintained with safety control according to category 3. The crane, together with all automated control systems, was completely planned and implemented by Voith.
