Single-Girder Cranes

EKKE Single-Girder Overhead Traveling Crane

Our Single-Girder Overhead Crane Offers Optimal Design, Performance, and Cost-Effectiveness

At Demag, our EKKE single-girder overhead traveling cranes feature maximum rigidity for a minimum deadweight. The cost-effective design of our single-girder crane can be specifically selected to your building and keeps the load on the crane runway to a minimum. This approach provides you with a cost-effective solution.

The EKKE single-girder overhead crane also includes a hoist unit with high handling speeds and many additional benefits including:

  • Outstanding crane geometry resulting in exceptional travel characteristics
  • Greater overall efficiency
  • Single-girder cranes made of computer-optimized box sections
  • End carriages of torsionally rigid, welded box-section design
  • Features the Demag standard design (1,900 hours of service at full load), offering improved cost-effectiveness and extended service life
  • Increased lifting and cross-travel speeds, leading to enhanced load handling
  • Low-sway load motions thanks to infinitely variable cross-travel speeds

Benefits for Our EKKE Single-Girder Crane

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
  • Favorable travel characteristics and minimum wear of crane runway and travel wheels thanks to low-maintenance drives
  • Travel wheels of highly wear-resistant GGG 70 spheroidal-graphite cast iron with self-lubricating properties

Highly Cost-Effective

  • Low deadweight reduces investment layout
  • 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 due to CAN Bus technology to meet tomorrow's demands for high data transmission reliability (category 3 to DIN/EN 954)
  • Compact traveling hoist design and large hook path, allowing for optimum utilization of the available height and space
  • Reduced construction and operating costs

Efficiency and Performance

  • Low-maintenance drives to decrease wear of crane runway and travel wheels
  • Control pendant suspended for separate travel on the crane girder with display for installation monitoring
  • Power supply to the trolley 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

When it comes to our wide range of equipment options, including our single-girder cranes, we match our standard cranes to the individual requirements of your application. We are able to meet your unique needs with:

  • 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 to help avoid load sway
  • End carriages with horizontal guide rollers to 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 to prevent collisions with obstacles along the crab travel path
  • Anti-collision protection and crane distance controls to 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 to satisfy the most varied requirements
