Welcome back to Safety Factor. In this episode, we are talking about overhead cranes and smart, non-contact measurement solutions. Non-contact measurement solutions, like side-pull detection, no-fly zones, and sway reduction, can make your overhead crane more efficient.

Today, we are joined again by Steven Lubeck, President of Laser-View Technologies, a provider of non-contact measurement sensors and systems for industry, and Mazzella Companies’ Mark Shubel, Director of Business and Training Development for Crane Service, to discuss how smart non-contact measurement solutions can help make overhead cranes more efficient.
