Fast, safe and reliable Overhead Cranes from Logiqs

The Overhead and 3D (X/Y) Cranes produced by Logiqs streamline the transport of both empty and full plant containers and have been successfully implemented in countless greenhouses and plant nurseries throughout the world.

Overhead Cranes are also our tool of choice for the supply and removal of rolling benches to a bench cleaner.

Transporting benches filled with plants can be especially useful in the flexible supply to your order picking area and in the transportation to and from a possible second layer.

All our overhead cranes are built with reliability and safety in mind and controlled automatically through our industry leading Dat-A-Control software.

Our Overhead cranes are split into two categories:
Overhead Cranes

Logiqs Overhead Cranes have a light-weight design and offer growers a high level of flexibility and reliability.

We produce overhead cranes for empty benches, for the logistic area of the greenhouse and empty bench management, but we also produce overhead cranes for the handling of benches that are full of plants for various production processes or logistical configurations where that might be needed.

The run length of an Overhead Crane can be as long as 100 meters, making it possible to connect multiple greenhouses if they are directly adjacent.

The hourly transport capacity of an Overhead Crane is dependent on the run length.

3D Overhead Crane (X/Y Crane)

For large-scale greenhouses that have high capacity requirements for order picking, Logiqs developed the 3D Overhead Crane.

This overhead crane can serve a large surface area, and move on both the X and Y axis.

This solution is ideal for order picking, giving the grower immediate access to all the containers within the cranes reach.

The run length of a 3D Overhead Crane can be as long as 100 meters (with a max width that corresponds to the length between greenhouse pillars) making it a highly flexible and efficient logistics solution.

The hourly transport capacity of the 3D Overhead Crane is entirely dependent on the run length.

Automated rolling bench systems using one several overhead cranes have multiple advantages compared to growing on the ground or on manual benching systems.

  • Easy management of highly diverse crops with high numbers of lots;
  • Increases production capacity;
  • Lowers labour costs;
  • Optimal space usage in the greenhouse;
  • Multiple complex logistics flows are possible;
  • Modular system design that allows phased deployments.
Fully automated control using Dat-A-Control makes our cranes faster and safer than manually controlled systems.

The 2D-Shuttle is a unique greenhouse automation solution, which is designed and built by Logiqs. This system is unmatched in its modular design, that allows for a flexible and scalable system.

The 2D-Shuttle is the semi-autonomous vehicle that rides underneath the rolling benches, using the heating pipes as rails, and in doing so, can automate large greenhouse surfaces.

The A-Track transport lines ensure bench movements between rows and connect the growing area to the work area.

Each individual A-Track Transport Line section is powered by just one drive unit, using two speeds: a fast one for normal bench movements and a slow one for precise positioning of the bench on the lifting frame.

When an A-Track transport line is connected with an isle of rolling benches, it’s also fitted with a pneumatic lifting frame for the bench handoff between transport line and 2D-Shuttle.

Throughout its history, Logiqs has developed various solutions for automatic transport of containers using Automatic Transport Carts, for the transport of one or multiple rolling benches simultaneously.

These automated carts can be mounted either on the central concrete path in the middle of your greenhouse or on the side-wall of the greenhouse.

The Overhead and 3D (X/Y) Cranes produced by Logiqs streamline the transport of both empty and full plant containers and have been successfully implemented in countless greenhouses and plant nurseries throughout the world.

Our Overhead Cranes have lightweight designs that don’t create high forces on the greenhouse structure while at the same time being highly durable and reliable.

Our lifts are custom made for the specific size of benches used by the vertical farm as well as if regards to the building height.

The lifts are produced using only the highest grade components, they use four independent electromechanical actuators for maximum stability and in order the evenly distribute forces.

Automated irrigation, on individual bench level, finally made possible by our Automatic Irrigation Booms and Dat-A-Control.

The Automatic Irrigation Booms/gantries from Logiqs are the most versatile all in one irrigation solution available today.

Available with a full software integration using Dat-A-Control, our Automatic Irrigation Booms allow growers to considerably reduce labor costs, improve product quality and conserve both water and feeds.

Why a LOGIQS rolling bench system?

Our long-term relationships with growers help us to fully understand their needs and ambitions and reach the desired automation results at the best possible price point.

We believe in sustainable automation and we don’t automate just for the sake of doing so. Because we only succeed when our customers are also successful in their production activities.

When necessary, long term phased plans can be made where the grower can fully understand how the greenhouse’s logistical system can be upgraded in time, even going from manual systems to a full automation level.
