LSM Technologies / Orlaco Camera Solution enhances Tyre Handler Safety
Since our news article LSM Technologies / Orlaco Camera Solution for Tyre Handlers back in Sept 2007, the Tyre Handlers at one of our mine sites clients have now been updated with the latest LSM Technologies Camera Viewing Solution so as to further enhancement to safety.
The objective was to further enhance safety during fitting large tyres to Mining Equipment by completely eliminating a fitter between the tyre handler arms.
So as to fit large tyres to the wheel hub, it was previously required to have a fitter guide the Tyre onto the hub so as to align the studs and air valve.
Subsequently, an LSM designed a Camera Solution which was supplied and installed by our Bowen Basin Distributor- Acubis Group.
The two Tyre Handlers have now been fitted with a heavy duty camera systems consisting off:
- 216 time Zoom Camera with Pan and Tilt mechanism.
- 10" High Bright LCD Monitor.
- Hand keypad Controller.
- Suitable cabling to the fork mast sheaves (avoids using RF communications which may result in video interference).
With the powerful capacity of the Zoom Camera (zooms to 216 times) the Operator can now align and fit tyres accurately without damaging the tyre / studs / valve and eliminates the need for a fitter between that Tyre Handlers arms.
The Zoom Camera Viewing Solution also can connect another two fixed cameras for other "blind" areas / Viewing needs such as for Rear and Side viewing.
LSM Technologies standard Warranty of three (3) year or 20,000 operating hours applies.
