Visitors from throughout the world come to the small German town of Wernigerode, at the foot of the Harz Mountains, to go walking and to ride on the old steam railway. From now on, some visitors will also be making their way to an industrial estate on the outskirts of the town to experience live crane control simulation.

The new Emotron crane centre opened in January 2007 and is one of only a few facilities of this kind in the world. The first trainees travelled all the way from Latin America and the next planned visit will be from Russia, which shows that cranes using Emotron products can be found in industrial environments and ports all over the world.

The centre gives crane customers the opportunity to experience the unique functionality and user-friendliness of Emotron variable speed drives in crane control at first hand. A crab carriage on a 20-meter long rail mounted on the ground allows for realistic simulation of driving and hoisting.
 
Emotron is now offering combined theoretical and practical crane training courses. Scheduled training courses take place in the third week of every month and last for two days. Emotron personnel will also benefit from the new arrangement, both for internal training and for testing new crane functions.
