Automated crane track measuring system

The RailControl system consists basically of three components:

  • vehicle (self-propelled, battery-powered or towed and pulled)
  •  measuring equipment (tachymeter/ total station / theodolite)
  • special evaluation software

The automated process developed by ThyssenKrupp GfT Gleistechnik GmbH in cooperation with Vermessungsbüro Hanack und Partner gives you many advantages:

Well-proven measurement principle

  • Checking for compliance with tolerances according to VDI 3576
  • Minimum interference with your operations
  • Possibility of measurements in the loaded (travelling crane) and unloaded state (stop); the difference can be used to make conclusions about the movements of the travelling crane.
  • Fault analysis tool to deal with problems during crane travel and increased wear
  • Possibility of monitoring by tachymetric measurements; the results can be integrated into a superior coordinate grid; repeated measurements are possible at any time.

RailControl can be used on any crane track. It is of special interest everywhere where an interruption of the operation is (almost) impossible (e.g. in high-bay warehouses) or cannot be compared to the loss; also in overhead cranes etc.

Make sure that your crane track is measured regularly - timely detection of defects saves costs. Get in contact with ThyssenKrupp GfT Gleistechnik.
