Fassi reaffirms once again as "leader in innovation", thanks to the integration within the group of a company specialized in the production of industrial sensors (TSM sensors), which has allowed Fassi to be the first company in its sector to introduce digital applications on articulated cranes
The ultimate goal of Fassi is to incorporate sensors to the cranes to improve the safety and efficiency of the machines in which they are installed. Currently working with four families of products: inclinometers, cable transducers, magnetostrictive linear position sensors and rotary angle sensors. Through the precise measuring of their parameters, it is possible to manage all functional situations automatically.
Inclinometers measure the angle with respect to Earth’s gravity and guarantee the stability of the machine with high precision.
Thanks to the recent introduction of MEMS gyroscopes, it is now possible to guarantee increased static and dynamic accuracy of the signal, compensating for any external disturbances such as, for example, vibration.
Cable transducers monitor transverse stability by measuring the outreach, or rather the distance from the centre of gravity, with a mechanical system (in practice, a wire), up to a maximum distance of 10 metres. They also guarantee a high level of protection, above all in demanding working conditions.
Magnetostrictive linear position sensors are another form of linear sensor which measure the position of a cylinder through a magnetic cursor placed on a shaft for a maximum distance of three metres. They are made of stainless steel and can be fitted to either the exterior or the interior of the cylinder. The technology guarantees elevated precision, with a maximum margin of error of just a few tenths of a millimetre for a precise measurement of the full range of operation. Furthermore, as there is no mechanical contact, the life cycle is practically infinite.
Rotary angle sensors use magnetic technology to measure the angle of rotation, for example, the rotation between the joint and slew-ring. They are available with an external rotor or spindle, allowing for various fixing solutions according to different requirements.
Thanks to the partnership with TSM Sensors, Fassi crane operation is safer and more closely monitored: in Transgrúas we are very satisfied of this agreement.
