The QX® Crane Package Offers Ease Of Operation, Reduced Maintenance, And Quick Assembly


SPRINGFIELD, OH (August 14, 2008)-The QX® Modular Crane Package by R&M Materials Handling offers a pre-engineered, modular crane package intended to maximize performance. Designed to expedite simple assembly, ease of operation, and reduced maintenance, the QX® Modular Crane Package is the perfect solution for most industrial crane applications.

The Spacemaster® SX Electric Wire Rope Hoist, with lifting capacities from ½ to 80 tons and lifting speeds from 10/1.5-62/10 fpm, is the highlight of the QX® Crane Package. The large diameter rope drum of the Spacemaster® SX Hoist offers low headroom, easy positioning, closer approaches, and reduced component wear. The Spacemaster® SX Hoist is outfitted with additional performance-enhancing features including sealed brakes, a two-speed hoist motor, and trolley inverter control.

The QX® Modular Crane Package simplifies assembly and ensures operational safety. Plug-in electrical cabling (available for most packages) facilitates simple, fast installation and allows you to control movements from a convenient pushbutton station. The QX® Modular Crane Package comes with standard safety features, including an electro-mechanical weight overload limit switch that prevents lifting loads in excess of 110% of the rated capacity.

The Spacemaster® SX Wire Rope Hoist technology guarantees high performance. The large rope drum diameter ensures near true vertical lift for the single-reeved models and creates smooth movement, fast load positioning, and short frame lengths. The variable frequency drives come standard on trolley and bridge motions, produce smooth acceleration and deceleration, and ensure accurate load placement.

The QX® Modular Crane Package requires minimal maintenance and reduces the cost of downtime. The sealed, dust-proof brakes on the trolley and hoist motors require little adjustment for over a million cycles, while the rope drum reduces wear on hoist components and enables the use of more cost-effective crane girders.

The QX® Modular Crane Package includes end trucks capable for CMAA Class C or Class D crane duty. The modular design of the bridge drives includes a gearbox, motor, and brake, specially designed for crane applications. The bridge controls feature a standard inverter that offers two-speed or two-step infinitely variable speed control. Additionally, the QX® Modular Crane Package includes festoon systems, equipped with CSA approved PVC flat cables, and plug connections on cables available for most packages.
