Crane manufacturer Tadano has entered a cooperation with HeavyGoods, a provider of software for swept path simulation, axle load calculation and load securing.


As a result of the cooperation, Tadano’s entire range of all-terrain cranes are preloaded in the HeavyGoods crane catalogue. This means that users do not have to manually enter extensive crane datasets into the system. Instead, they can select preloaded datasets that have been verified by the crane manufacturer. 

HeavyGoods managing director Susann Beyersdorfer explained: “With our HeavyGoods app, users can simulate crane driving manoeuvres directly online on Google Maps or on their own drone aerial imagery, PDF site drawings, or official survey maps. They can then view the simulations as swept paths in video format.”

Martin Lottes, team leader of concept design at Tadano, added: “Our customers are often faced with the challenge of how best to navigate tight spaces to get their cranes onto the construction site. In these cases, HeavyGoods is a huge help when it comes to selecting the best route.”
