Planning crane jobs not just safely but also efficiently and economically is one of the challenges of the everyday crane business. The safety level required for crane work can be achieved by the interaction of your well-trained crane operators and our LICCON control system.

But how can ballast transport, for example, be reduced whilst still achieving the same or even higher performance?

The increase in economy is often a question of good planning – and it is here that we want to provide support.

The LICCON work planner enables you to plan low cost crane jobs efficiently.

This is where our unique VarioBase® system comes to the fore – its smart software calculates lifting capacities in real-time and displays them on the crane’s monitor. That means that much higher lifting capacities can be achieved in the areas above the outriggers, significantly improving efficiency. However, it also leads to so many different lifting capacity states that they can no longer be shown on paper in the form of lifting capacity charts.

This is where the LICCON work planner comes in – a system for planning, simulating and documenting crane jobs on a PC and in a crane cab. We supply the latest software version with every machine together with the original crane data sets so that you are always up to date and you can plan your crane jobs using this planning tool very efficiently and safely.

An example of this:

  • The LTM 1750-9.1 delivers a lifting capacity of 18 tonnes with 94 tonnes of ballast with the standard 360┬░ table and a radius of 45 metres.

    The LTM 1750-9.1 delivers a lifting capacity of 18 tonnes with 94 tonnes of ballast with the standard 360° table and a radius of 45 metres.

  • With VarioBase┬« it achieves a lifting capacity of 18.2 tonnes over the outriggers with just 54 tonnes of ballast with a radius of 45 metres.

    With VarioBase® it achieves a lifting capacity of 18.2 tonnes over the outriggers with just 54 tonnes of ballast with a radius of 45 metres.

  • This has enabled us to make less into more: 40 tonnes less ballast that has to be transported to the site, and an increase of 200 kilogrammes in lifting capacity. This enables you to save resources and work more economically.

    As an aside, you can do that in the LICCON job planner with just five clicks! Try it.

    Integrated in Liebherr mobile cranes, the tool enables your crane operator to simulate the job you have planned on site before completing the actual hoist. This is a good idea if a foureyes principle is required or if the conditions have changed between when the job was planned and when it is due to be completed. It means that the worst case scenario of an impossible hoist can be avoided on the site.

    After completing your plans, the job planner can produce complete documentation of all the details in the form of a PDF file. After all, only if your driver knows how you have planned a job and with what criteria, will he be able to carry out that job on site.
