FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Atlanta-Based Robotics Firm CAMotion Announces Completion of R&D Crane for Caterpillar Inc.
Atlanta-based robotics firm, CAMotion, completed the design, installation, and commissioning of their Crane Manipulation System (CMS) for Caterpillar Inc., a leading manufacturer in the heavy machinery industry. CAMotion's CMS provides crane operators with a means of commanding swing-free motion, the capability for precise and automatic positioning, and protection from collisions. CAMotion's CMS generally reduces payload swing by 85-95%, can automatically position payloads within an inch of desired positions, and prevents collisions between the crane and surrounding equipment.
The crane that Caterpillar equipped with CAMotion's CMS is located at Caterpillar's Production Center of Excellence, in Mossville, IL. The facility hosts a variety of new equipment, and serves as a testing center for promising technology. Over the next several months, Caterpillar's CMS-enabled crane will undergo a battery of tests to measure production, safety, and energy benefits.
CAMotion hosts several CMS product demonstrations monthly near their head quarters, in Atlanta, GA. For more information about crane control solutions, or to schedule a product demonstration, contact Khalid Sorensen.
