Heavy loads, long travels and extreme weather conditions are just a few challenges for crane systems: where deadlines are still tight and safety must always be guaranteed, e-chains are a reliable alternative to busbar systems, festooning and motor drums with less maintenance and noise. With the right energy chain, a coordinated and reliable solution can be found for every application scenario.
Whether indoors or at the port, for bulk goods or container handling - all our products have been developed according to one motto: Tech up, cost down!
Maintenance and servicing for current crane systems is growing not only in size, but also operational complexity. The intelligent energy chains of the future therefore "talk" to the user and take away this complexity from them. Learn more about our condition monitoring (i.Sense) and predictive maintenance (i.Cee) systems in this blog article.
New container ships require ever larger STS cranes with ever higher requirements for availability and reliability. This also has an impact on the design and selection of the energy supply system, which is increasingly being equipped with sensors. Find out more about self-monitoring roller energy chains in this blog article.
An exceptionally space-saving solution has been developed for the energy supply system of a fully automatic crane system, which has proven itself under the highest loads and in continuous operation - and which today creates 50 percent more storage space.
A roller energy chain is in operation at one of the largest bulk handling ports in Western Europe. On the massive ship-to-shore crane, it operates without incident despite continuous operation and over 100 metres of travel.
