Steel industry uses ladle crane as a vital material handling equipment. Design and procurement of the ladle crane is not up to the mark. Type of load, height to hoist, angle of tilt, space etc ascertains the crane specification. Mathematical analysis, taking all these factors has become an important research area. Earlier researches on ladle crane dynamics are not with so details analysis and providing so many feasibilities. Simulation of Ladle Crane dynamics on ladle hoisting and ladle tilting has been discussed. A methodology to build a dynamic of ladle crane is exhibited. The methodology provided, may be used as an assistant tool is proposed so that it will help industrial designer to build or modify a ladle crane model of most technologically innovative and as per requirement and demand. Efficient and effective crane operation is the basic target of this study. A simulation study is made with different parameters to show how these influence the system’s performance. A comparative study of efficient drive systems performed and from these a mathematical model is build to analyze, simulate.
