After the launch of SmartGrip in June 2014, many customers expressed their interest in this innovative technology. In the meantime, several cranes all over the world have already been equipped with SmartGrip, which stands for more turnover, less stress and zero overloads. This technology for optimised grab filling rates is not only available for new cranes but also suitable for retrofits of existing cranes.
In order to increase productivity, Port Polnocny in Poland decided to install SmartGrip in two existing LPS 600s which are also fitted with Pactronic. In Senegal, two LHM 550s will soon start operation for Necotrans. The installation of SmartGrip allows for highly efficient bulk operation without overloads.
Due to the strong interest from its customers, Liebherr expects several new SmartGrip installations in new and existing mobile harbour cranes in the near future.
