YawSTOP is a patent pending solution that has been developed by the R&D department at Kolberg Caspary Lautom.

There have been many attempts to create a gyroscopic solution to control rotation for suspended cargo. What the previous solutions all had in common was that they could not produce a continuous counter torque without having to reset the mechanism. This problem made these devices unpractical and heavy.

YawSTOP uses an unique gearing mechanism that enables the unit to produce a continuous counter-torque to the suspended cargo as long as power is supplied to the unit. The crane-operator can remotely rotate and lock the cargo at any angle without the need for personnel with tag-lines. YawStop is a fully scalable concept and can be adapted to any load.

Current stage:

At this point we have successfully tested and validated the YawSTOP prototype, and we aim to reach the market with our product during 2019.
