Safe, reliable and efficient operation

DFO | DFM end carriages

Solutions ready for connection to cranes and superstructures

Our end carriages are compact, rail-mounted travel units for direct connection to crane girders and other load-bearing structures. The end carriages consist of a torsionally rigid box section, our wheel blocks and one of our geared motors. They offer excellent travel characteristics – also for high loads

Minimum force transmitted

to the crane runway and building structure by travel units that are specially designed for crane applications:

  • Travel units with precisely manufactured wheels made of wear-resistant material provide for smooth running characteristics
  • Variable-speed inverter-fed drives for precise positioning and gentle loads on the entire design
  • Low maintenance costs: the travel units are rated for the entire crane service life
