The trolley is typically mounted on rails that run along the boom of a container crane, allowing it to move horizontally. It is equipped with a spreader, which is an adjustable frame that can be raised, lowered, and rotated to securely grasp and release the containers. Our trolleys can also equipped with advanced features like automated control systems, collision detection, and remote monitoring capabilities. This helps safety, efficiency, and overall operational performance.

Core of lifting

The core of lifting container cranes consists of several essential components that work together to facilitate the efficient and safe movement of shipping containers.Components that work together are:
• Trolley
• Spreader
• Boom
• Gantry
• Operator’s cabin
• Safety features

Active load control

Active load control utilizes advanced sensors, actuators, and algorithms to actively monitor and manage the motion of containers during the lifting and transportation process. The systems address these issues by continuously adjusting the movement of the crane and its components to minimize unwanted motion.Key features include:
• Anti-sway systems
• Positioning assistance
• Energy optimization
• Safety improvements

Bogies are the wheeled structures that support the container crane's weight and facilitate its movement along the rails. The primary purpose of a bogie is to distribute the weight of the crane and its load evenly across the wheels. This helps prevent damage to the rails and ensures the stability of the crane during operation.

Container crane cabins are the control centers for the operators who manage the movement and placement of shipping containers at ports and terminals. We gives a lot of attention to the design of container crane cabins focuses on providing a comfortable and safe working environment for the operators.  Some key features include:
• Ergonomic design
• Visibility
• Climate control
• Noise reduction
• Safety features
• Communication equipment

The best assets for the job

One of the key features of ship-to-shore container cranes is their ability to move along rails parallel to the dock, enabling them to service multiple berths and handle several ships simultaneously. This mobility increases the efficiency of cargo operations at busy ports.

Skilled operators can work in a control cabin located high above the ground, providing an unobstructed view of the entire loading and unloading process. Advanced computer systems and cameras will be used to monitor and control the movement of the crane and the containers.

In recent years, there has been a trend towards automation in container handling, with some ports implementing remotely operated or even fully autonomous cranes. Lagendijk integrates these technologies to aim further increase of efficiency, reduce labor costs, and improve safety in port operations.
