In 2010, a major government public safety agency set out to improve and enhance their current radio communications system. In order to continue to carry out their mission, improved interoperability between regions was necessary. In cases where units from multiple regions were deployed to support an incident, a need for frequency pairing operating on wide spacing was crucial to minimize interference. A vital part of this project was increasing the separation between transmit and receive frequencies which then required the installation of high quality wideband lowband antennas.
With acquisition of South Korea-based Model Solution, Laird is committed to providing the highest quality products while delivering all aspects of innovation, reliable fulfillment and speed to give customers reliability in manufacturing, leading designs with superior service and speed of delivery.
Being located near key customers and having the ability to turn around prototypes within hours, Model Solution’s rapid prototyping capabilities enhances existing design innovation and manufacturing proficiencies within Laird to deliver a wider portfolio of capabilities to customers.
In 1995, Barrick Goldstrike studied its options for the Meikle-Rodeo ore bodies. Spread out over one-and-a-half miles in Elko, Nev., the Meikle-Rodeo ore is embedded in what one company official calls “a very large block.” However, the ground is highly fractured, so safety is the primary concern. Mine workers who operate load haul dumps (LHDs) could easily be at risk in what can charitably be described as an uncertain environment.
NLMK, a leading international steel company which produces a comprehensive range of flat and long steel products, recently installed a Laird LRC-M1/CT24 radio remote control on a shipping crane at their Sharon, Pennsylvania facility. Following a rebuild in 2004, the 1955 P&H Overhead Crane was equipped with a radio control and in September 2012 the company decided to update the radio remote control system.
AK Steel, a leading producer of flat-rolled carbon, electrical and stainless steel, is upgrading remote control of 18 locomotives with Laird's Cattron-Theimeg MP 96 Portable Remote Controllers (PRCs).
MP 96 controllers are undergoing installation for locomotive switching operations at four AK Steel facilities in Middletown, Ohio, Ashland, Ky., Rockport, Ind. and Butler, Pa.
“We chose Cattron-Theimeg because of the quality of the product, reasonable price and our positive experiences with previous Cattron products” said Michael Thompson, shift manager at Middletown.
