SIMOCRANE Final Landing System (FLS)
Safe operations with superior performance
Siemens has taken the next step in advanced automation developing an efficient system to support remote landing operations. The Final Landing System (FLS) assists the operator to use the cranes’ full capacity at the same time achieving safe and accurate operations. FLS supports remote operator guidance when positioning in auto mode. Using the latest camera or laser technologies together with an innovative assistance via automatic functions, the operator has high control for pick-up and set-down operations.
Innovative technology improving productivityFLS system assists the operator to land the spreader with high precision by means of multiple accurate container recognition functions. For different scenarios, the system contributes for a superior cranes’ performance and accurate stacking.
Accurate stacking in different operational scenarios
The landing is guided and actively controlled in six degrees of freedom allowing movements in three-dimensional space to stack accurately based on specified ground gradient. The sensors provide velocity and height measurements defining all objects positions.
FLS integrates all the data for gantry, trolley, trim,list, skew and hoist allowing the operator to easily find the best angle to stack accurately. On that way, FLS contributes to shorten the cycle time of automatic container handling resulting in superior crane performance.
Siemens Final Landing System can use cameras to recognize the top corners of the container underneath at which the empty spreader shall land on. The cameras used for remote operations can also be used for FLS avoiding extra investments.
Cranes' full capacity with accuracyFLS offers valuable benefits for improving stacking. These advantages are built by offering the state-of-the-art technology, with a system designed taking into consideration the daily reality in container terminals around the world. The main benefits terminals can achieve with FLS:
