Columbus McKinnon has expanded its Intelli-Crane family of automation solutions with the new Intelli-Guide Auto-Dispatch System. Using Magnetek radios, drives and automation programming integrated with motors and brakes, Intelli-Guide allows operators to automatically send a load to different pre-programmed areas in a facility with the push of a button. As the load moves to the programmed destination along a determined route, operators can work on a different task or start on the next step of the production process, increasing productivity and efficiency.
Intelli-Guide systems can be configured to your exact requirements, giving you flexibility to meet the needs of your unique manufacturing processes. Designed for use on cranes and monorails traveling long distances, even in hazardous environments, Intelli-Guide is ideal for the aerospace, automotive, metals manufacturing, storage and retrieval, and marine terminal industries.
