Smooth handling of transformer bushings in a narrow layout
Solving has installed a customised, radio-guided and battery-powered Mover to move transformer bushings in a production area. The Mover frame is telescopic and thus adjustable to loads of various lengths. Due to a very narrow layout, the Mover must be able to drive omnidirectionally: forwards, backwards, crossways and diagonally. The Mover is controlled with a portable remote-control unit, allowing the operator to supervise and drive both the Mover and load in a safe way. Additional safety is provided by collision sensors, which warn the operator whenever an object is detected in front of the Mover.
