Kronos introduced Smart Boom Control on Gripto timber loaders

Smart Boom Control is now available on Kronos Gripto timber loaders. Kronos is the first manufacturer to introduce Smart Boom Control on tractor-operated timber loaders. Previously, a similar system was available only on the biggest forest machines.

“Smart Boom Control lets the operator control the tip of the loader in any direction by joystick. In traditional systems, the operator has had to move the tip by extending or retracting numerous different hydraulic cylinders one by one,” explains Product Manager Dennis Grankvist.

Working with Smart Boom Control offers more precise, faster and higher quality results. The boom moves seamlessly instead of in stages. An electronic damper prevents sudden movements when the boom reaches its maximum outreach. The rotation of the boom can also be set to a steady speed, regardless of whether the boom is one meter or ten meters from the driver.

The system’s sensors are located outside of the hydraulic cylinders, but inside the boom, making them easy to change if necessary. The system’s intelligence is integrated into the valve board’s controller and also has diagnostic capabilities. Smart Boom Control is suitable for both tractor-operated and self-propelled machines.
