EKKE Single-Girder Overhead Traveling Cranes with the New Demag EKDR Rope Hoist Optimized for Crane Applications

Press release date: January 25, 2010

Single-girder overhead travelling cranes provide you with high-quality Demag technology at a particularly attractive price. They ensure maximum rigidity for a minimum deadweight. This keeps the load on the crane runway low, and a cost-effective design can be selected for the building. They also offer the benefits of outstanding crane geometry, resulting in exceptional travel characteristics. The new Demag DR rope hoist is of optimum design for crane applications. Therefore, the entire crane installations meets your demands for greater efficiency.

Benefits

  • Computer-optimised box section as the crane girder
  • End carriages of torsionally rigid, welded box girder construction
  • Travel wheels of highly wear-resistant GGG 70 spheroidal cast iron with self-lubricating properties
  • Connections between the main girder and end carriages manufactured to mechanical engineering tolerances for minimum wear
  • Travelling rope hoist of low-headroom design offering particularly favourable hook approach dimensions to serve the largest possible area
  • Power supply to the crab by means of highly flexible flat cable with protective earth conductor
  • Control pendant suspended for separate travel on the crane girder, display for installation monitoring
  • Optional: Radio remote control with display and proportional pushbuttons
  • Optimum anti-corrosion protection of all parts thanks to pre-treatment of steel components to industry standard
