Development of a Crane Control Panel for an International Customer

Development of a Crane Control Panel for an International CustomerSTA-CON LLC is the industry-leading control system manufacturer and is proud to have maintained that reputation for 40 years. Our commitment to quality and competitive pricing has attracted customers from various industries, including our partnership with clients in the machine control industry. We were recently contracted for an international emergency crane control panel development project.
Being a flexible, customer-oriented company, we manufactured the 15-ton overhead crane control panel. When another company couldn't meet the customer's needs in the timeframe required, we stepped in and expanded our manufacturing range for this market.
We started by generating designs and drawings based on the original manufacturer's documentation. We then began construction methods per European standards. The crane control panel design included sequencing trolley motors, brakes, bridge and hoist motors. Measuring 30" high x 48" wide x 10" deep and made of steel, this complex panel featured variable frequency drive (VFD) controlled motors, crane braking control and sequence, an external pendant control interface, ventilation louvers. All of these components had to be manufactured to customer and IEC standards, inspected, tested, and complete within 4 weeks.
Our venture into this new market proved successful both from the customer's perspective and from Stacon's. It showed our flexibility, performance capabilities, and manufacturing range. We are always looking for new and innovative ways to put our expertise to use. Contact us for more information.
