They have been designed for the overhead moving of loads within a building, such as in production and assembly areas: gantry cranes. As they are fixed to the building, they allow for three directions of movement, which cables, hoses and energy supplies also have to follow. Short downtimes, low maintenance requirements and the functional reliability of the system are important from an economic point of view, but also with regard to occupational safety. Due to the individual building conditions and areas of application, gantry cranes are usually custom-made, from the crane track to the energy supply system. Our energy supply systems have been developed for different operating conditions, but also for the various standards of the international markets. They are designed in an optimal way, as a complete system or individual component, and with a predictable service life.
Light, compact and durable energy chain solutions for single-girder travelling cranes
Lightweight, robust, cost-effective: e-chains for double-girder travelling cranes
Modern steel production takes place in steel plants with increasingly high levels of integration. What technical challenges result from this for the transport and conveyor plant used, especially for the cranes in steel plants? How can an energy supply be achieved that is both reliable and efficient? There are two options: festoons and energy chains. What system has more advantages?
The quick and easy to install position measuring system for every type of crane. Provide your crane with millimetre-accurate positioning and also create the possibility of integrating other smart plastics products, which further increases the safety and performance of the system.
A slab transport crane in a hot rolling mill works reliably in heat and dust. Energy and signal supply to the trolley and cabin is ensured by "heavy duty" energy chains.
At a Belgian waste disposal company, the trailing cables were replaced by energy chains in two travelling cranes. They reliably guide the cables over 116m travel.
