Every time a spreader is lowered too quickly onto a container, there’s a greater risk of an impact that will reduce the lifetime of the machine and increase maintenance costs. The Kalmar Softlanding System automatically slows down lowering speeds when the spreader gets close to a container, protecting both equipment and container from damaging impacts and giving operators valuable peace of mind.
The Kalmar Soft Landing System is available for:
The Kalmar Soft Landing System uses an ultrasonic sensor to measure the distance between the container and spreader to prevent operators lowering too fast. When the distance has been covered it gives a signal to the control unit to slow the lowering speed, preventing unnecessary impacts and equipment misuse. The system has two different levels of speed reduction that activate one at a time when the limits are reached.
