  • Crane Planner 2.0 – in-house development for perfect crane operations
    We started developing the Crane Planner 2.0 – a modern deployment planner for crane operations – in 2016: first at our plant in Nenzing (Austria) for smaller crawler cranes, then also with the mobile and crawler cranes from our plant in Ehingen (Germany). Our joint team from both sites – comprising software developers, product managers, design engineers and designers – made this planning software for our cranes ready for market and took it to customers.

    Digital world premiere – live product launch of our LTM 1150-5.3

    Summer 2020: the design of our new jewel in every crane fleet was progressing, and the first prototype was in production. But then the question arose from marketing and product management: How are we going to present our new LTM 1150-5.3, now that the fall trade shows are canceled due to the coronavirus? After a quick brainstorming, it was clear that the only way to do a product presentation would be virtually. A script was worked out, and the handover building was promptly transformed into a film studio. There had never been a virtual product launch at Ehingen before, but this digital world premiere was a complete success thanks to the efforts of everyone involved.
