2. A monitoring system is installed to monitor the working status of the crane in real time.

3. The hoisting mechanism of the ladle crane adopts redundant system design to ensure the safety and reliability of lifting liquid metal.

4. It is with wireless transmission and electronic scales, real-time transmission of the weight of liquid metal.

5. Each crane is designed with an electric room, and an electric fan or AC unit is installed in the electric room to ensure the safe and reliable operation of the electrical equipment.

6. ladle crane hoisting mechanism adopts the planetary reducer structure. If one motor fails, it can still complete the lifting work in a short time.
