Cavotec “digitises” logo with LogoGrab smart phone app

We’ve teamed up with smart phone app innovator LogoGrab to enable customers, suppliers and the general public to interact more easily with Cavotec.

“We’ve “digitised” our logo, making it simpler for people to engage with us. It couldn’t be easier to use, and the beauty of it is, that it uses our existing logo,” says Julia Weinhart, Manager, Cavotec Group Communications & PR.

Point and shoot: logo grabbed

LogoGrab reads company logos much the same way as a QR code to link to content such as homepages, social media channels, event news or promotions. The technology uses existing logos: there is no need to incorporate QR codes.

Anyone who downloads the LogoGrab application to their smartphone will be able to use the app to read the Cavotec logo wherever it appears – print advertisements, event panels, financial reports, even a Cavotec product – and the phone will instantly direct the user to Cavotec content on the phone’s internet browser.

“We’re delighted Cavotec has taken the time to connect their logo to LogoGrab. The app is an ideal way for people to connect with the brands they want to do business with or that they are interested in,” says LogoGrab Co-founder Luca Boschin.

LogoGrab, based in Switzerland currently expanding in the US market, was established in 2012. The company already has some 600 customers ranging from small firms and sports clubs, to mid-size corporations and major multinationals.


New lightweight Radio Remote Control unit

New Radio Remote Control (RRC) unit

Small and perfectly formed: our new lightweight Radio Remote Control unit.

We are delighted to announce the arrival of a new lightweight radio remote control (RRC) unit, the MC3100. The unit, already in service with two of our customers, has been designed for frequent, extended use to control mobile cranes, tower cranes, crusher machines and other machinery.

As with many of our innovative systems and technologies, customer feedback has been critical to developing the MC3100.

“The MC3100 responds to three key demands identified by our customers: safety, ergonomics and the capacity to perform under severe mechanical stress,” says Cavotec Micro-control’s Peter Grönholm.

We anticipate the unit being especially useful for the general industry, farming and agricultural sectors where operators need to control smaller cranes and other equipment more frequently and for longer periods than many heavy industry and offshore energy applications.

We have designed advanced RRC units for the oil and gas, mining and tunnelling  and general industry sectors for many years, including explosion proof units. All the safety features that our engineers developed in the systems that serve these demanding applications have now been incorporated into the MC3100. Here’s a recent post about how our RRCs will be used on the world’s largest deepwater drilling ship, the Dalian Developer.
