Next-Level Automation

Workplace safety, efficiency, and performance can make or break a business; our individual automation packages and features make sure you get them. We can add them to your crane at any time, and if your crane was not designed or built by our team at Zenar, we can still assist you in maximizing its value with the latest in robotic, laser, and radio frequency technology.

Positioning Assistance System

Our Positioning Assistance System uses sensors to allow operators to consistently position loads with precision. This is exceptionally valuable in position-critical applications with limited visibility, like when using charging cranes, ladle cranes, and shipping cranes.

Proximity Warning Systems

The radio frequency technology used in our Proximity Warning System warns crane operators of possible collisions between cranes, vehicles, and pedestrians, making worksites safer for everyone.

Semi-Automatic Positioning

This feature allows the operator to select a predefined position and transport the crane from the present position to the desired position by pressing the semi-auto command when the load is at a safe height. This can dramatically improve operational efficiency with accurate positioning of the load in less time.

Shock Load Prevention

Shock Load Prevention automation connects to a crane’s hoist drive system to monitor the load and control the speed of the hoist, reducing the possibility of sudden shock to the crane’s hoist and rigging. As a result, it avoids damage to both equipment and inventory, maximizing the lifetime of the crane.

Condition Monitoring and Diagnostics

Condition Monitoring and Diagnostics allows maintenance teams to track essential crane functions and troubleshoot problems from the floor. As a result, fewer hours are spent climbing up and down ladders and testing functions, so you can get your crane back to moving material like it should.

No-Fly Zone

This feature uses predetermined no-fly zones to keep overhead cranes from flying over certain areas where other equipment or shelving is permanently stationed. When paired with anti-collision technology, a crane can respond in real time to the objects in its environment while automatically avoiding no-fly zones wherever it travels. 

Collision Avoidance

When combined with Semi-Automatic Positioning and No-Fly Zone Automation, Collision Avoidance technology serves as a failsafe in preventing crane collisions of all kinds, including crane-to-crane, crane-to-wall, and crane-to-wracking or storage systems.

Sway Control

Sway Control automation limits load sway by automatically compensating for load weight and force using the bridge and trolley. Not only does it improve positioning, but it also helps prevent accidents created by swinging loads.


Maximize the life of your crane wheels with automatic anti-skewing technology. Using two sets of positioning sensors on either side of the bridge, the Anti-Skew feature will automatically keep an overhead crane straight and prevent typical wear and tear caused by skewing.

Our Process

Our process is designed and crafted to take on any of your needs, making sure you get a custom crane solution that fits your project like no other. We want your voice to be heard when we build every component and won’t stop working until the quality of the finished product is unrivaled.
