OneBase®Crane Guidance System

OneBase®MFT Kranleitsystem

High-Efficiency Crane Guidance System

ABF Kranleitsystem


With the OneBase®MFT crane guidance system, the entire material handling in the warehouse is carried out transparently and priority-controlled – whether it involves transport orders for manually operated or fully automatic cranes.

In the case of manual cranes, material is picked up and discharged in the same way as with the forklift guidance system, tracked fully automatically without additional barcode scans. The existing cranes are equipped with additional hardware for this purpose (see figure on the left). Transport orders are generated by the crane control system, which are then displayed on the crane terminal and carried out by manual crane control of an operator.

For the management of fully automated warehouses, the input of transport orders is done in the same way as for manual cranes. Nevertheless, the request to carry out the transport is not only displayed, but also forwarded to the crane control system (PLC).

The Crane Guidance System works perfect on automatic cranes. Bellow a example of two automatic cranes in a cantilever rack:

The OneBase®MFT Guidance System not only assists forklifts and cranes, moreover it is the optimal intralogistics solution for hybrid fleets of ground vehicles, traction engines and tugger trains. The Guidance System makes sure to optimize the management of the warehouse through automatically movement of the material.


Positioning made easy - with LPR® of Symeo

The position detection of manually operated cranes occurs through the components of our partner Symeo. 

They have specialised in the positioning of means of transport under special circumstances. (areas that are unclear, strong and smoke development as well as strong vibrations and extreme temperatures)
