Epec’s control system was installed into translifters manufactured by TTS Liftec Oy and the MultiTool configuration tool was used to program the control units. The translifters were also equipped with a modern GlobE remote management solution.
TTS Liftec Oy, located in Pirkkala, is a company that manufactures translifters and straddle carriers for ports and the heavy industry. The translifters are used to move loads of up to 200 tons and their control units must endure vibrations, heat and sub-zero temperatures.
“These conditions definitely set strict durability requirements for the machines and their control units”, says automation engineer Mika Rinta-Koski from TTS Liftec.
The machines are used in heavy-duty work, so the operators must be able to trust them completely.
