AMCS Technologies has installed its anti collision system on four Potain tower cranes working on the extension of the Chanel leather goods factory in Verneuil-en-Halatte, northern France.
The four Potain tower cranes include the MD 285, MD 345 and two MDT 308s, all which have a maximum capacity of 12 tonnes. They have been equipped with the DCS 61-S anti collision system, which calculates the distances between the cranes and their loads in three dimensions and merges the data with the actual real time movement speeds to maintain safe distances between each crane, automatically bringing them to a stop should they stray into predetermined proximities or no-go zones.
When complete, the plant will cover 25,000 square metres and will make ‘off the shelf’ bags and small leather goods. It should be completed by the end of 2020.
