Optimised design

EKKE single-girder overhead travelling cranes

Optimum performance and cost-effectiveness

Our EKKE single-girder overhead travelling cranes feature maximum rigidity for a minimum deadweight. This keeps the load on the crane runway to a minimum – and a cost-effective design can be selected for the building. This approach provides you with a cost-effective solution. They also include a hoist unit with high handling speeds and the benefits of outstanding crane geometry, resulting in exceptional travel characteristics. For greater overall efficiency. What other benefits do EKKE units offer?

  • Crane girders made of computer-optimised box sections
  • End carriages of torsionally rigid, welded box-section design
  • Improved cost-effectiveness offered by the hoist thanks to extended service life as part of the Demag standard design (1,900 hours of service at full load)
  • Improved load handling thanks to increased lifting and cross-travel speeds
  • Low-sway load motions thanks to infinitely variable cross-travel speeds

Product information

The benefits at a glance

High stability and design rigidity

  • Torsionally rigid, enclosed box-section profile with reinforced connection (welded diaphragm plates)
  • Engineering tolerances in the crane girder connection area
  • End carriages of torsionally rigid, welded box-section design
  • Favourable travel characteristics and minimum wear thanks to low-maintenance drives
  • Travel wheels of highly wear-resistant GGG 70 spheroidal-graphite cast iron with self-lubricating properties
  • Optomum travel characteristics with minimum wear of crane runway and travel wheels

Highly cost-effective

  • Low deadweight reduces investment layout – crane girders made of computer-optimised box sections
  • Increased efficiency thanks to rope hoist with extended service life due to Demag 2m+ classification (1,900 hours of service at full load)
  • Reliable monitoring and preventive maintenance thanks to CAN Bus technology to meet tomorrow's demands for high data transmission reliability (category 3 to DIN/EN 954)
  • Optimum utilisation of the available height and space thanks to compact travelling hoist design and large hook path
  • Reduced construction and operating costs thanks to optimised designs

Efficiency and performance

  • Minimum wear of crane runway and travel wheels thanks to low-maintenance drives
  • Control pendant suspended for separate travel on the crane girder with display for installation monitoring
  • Power supply to the crab by means of highly flexible flat cable with protective earth conductor
  • Optional radio control with power and signal transmission via energy chain system
  • Optional radio control with display and proportional pushbuttons

Equipment options

 With our wide range of equipment options, we match our standard cranes to the individual requirements of your application:

  • automatic height adjustment of the control pendant to facilitate load attachment
  • control by pendant switch
  • control via bi-directional radio control with proportional pushbuttons
  • smooth starting helps to avoid load sway
  • end carriages with horizontal guide rollers eliminate skewing and thus the lateral forces which otherwise act on the crane runway
  • limit switches or slack rope relays protect the hoist and load from damage
  • bypass control system prevents collisions with obstacles along the crab travel path
  • anti-collision protection and crane distance controls ensure the safe operation of several cranes on one runway
  • cranes fitted with two crabs make it easy to handle long and awkward loads
  • comprehensive range of load handling attachments satisfies the most varied requirements.
