Hird will be showcasing the major advantages of 3B6 load monitoring systems at Vertikal Days on Wednesday 14th and Thursday 15th of May.
3B6 load systems are installed by many of the world’s leading mini crane and materials handling machine manufacturers, including Valla pick and carry mini cranes, CVS Ferrari dock handlers, Terex and Manitou.
They can also be retrofitted to a wide range of machines to significantly improve safety and operational analysis, leading to enhanced productivity. These include:
- Mobile cranes
- Reach stackers
- Telescopic handlers
- Pick and carry cranes
- Dump trucks
- Drilling and pilling machines
- Wheel loaders
- Lattice boom cranes
- Rail road loaders
- Knuckle boom cranes
Hird is the UK and Ireland distributor for 3B6 which produces a range of load monitoring devices, focusing primarily on cranes, including mini cranes, lifting equipment and plant machinery. 3B6 load systems also include digging systems for load shovels and excavators.
Carl Cooper, Hird’s mini crane sales manager, said: “What sets 3B6 apart from many other suppliers of load monitoring devices is that it offers full systems control and management with its CAN BUS systems.
“For example, a mini crane operator has a powerful safety aid to help prevent accidents. But the company also has access to powerful data about how the mini crane is being operated, which can help improve productivity and security.
The manufacturer has an on-board diagnostic and control system that can monitor the machine, including engine management, enabling remote transfer of data between the equipment and the manufacturer.
“This allows the manufacturer to inform the machine’s owner about its condition, including service requirements or what repairs might be required.
“3B6 load monitoring systems help ensure the machine, its loads and the surrounding worksite are not damaged through overloading or mis-use, reducing risks, which impacts positively on other costs, such as insurance.
“Many Tier 1 contractors also now require their suppliers to use machines with safety systems, like 3B6 load monitors, installed. So it is an important element of improving the quality of service and winning important contracts.
“We would welcome a visit to our stand in the Vertikal Days market place from any machine operator or supplier who wants to find out more about 3B6.
