Energy chains for double-girder travelling cranes

In contrast to single-girder travelling cranes, double-girder travelling cranes or double-girder gantry cranes are designed for significantly higher lifting loads. The cranes usually bridge large hall areas and therefore often require rapid movement of the goods to be transported.
This requires robust energy chains, guide troughs and cables for high travel speeds and accelerations, which can also be easily retrofitted into existing crane systems and allow quiet movement.

e-chain E4.1 iSet

e-spool energy chain - the alternative to a cable drum without slip ring

e-spool uniquely combines two different energy supply systems: one standard energy chain is guided by a roller, providing the correct length and tension of the energy supply system through an integrated spring. In the home position, the energy chain is completely rolled to save space. The twisterband connects the roller with the shaft end block, serving as an interface to the supply side cables.

Liftband energy chain - vertical applications up to 13m

liftband - modular, quiet, space-saving - vertical guidance of energy, data and media. With the liftband, high vertical applications can be implemented, which have a lot of space available horizontally but only allow for low system heights.

e-drum energy chain

Its modular system allows flexible adaptation to the application in question. The modular system of the e-drum enables the user to create a compact and durable guidance and drum-reeling system for energy, data, air and fluids.
