Mounting on location
Following up on previous news item, here a short impression on the mounting of 2 oieces of single girder overhead travelling cranes, working load 5.000kg wit a span of 27 meters.
It is always an impressive operation which of course needs a lot of preparation and planning, starting with the transportation of the crane, is the width of the crane not to great, is there transport guidance needed, van we enter the buiding, is the floor strong enough for a truck., is there enough space to turn the crane en lift it onto the tracks ?
Are there no obstacles, is the span correct , is there space enough above the crane rails ?
Single girder overhead cranes
Recently delivered 2 pieces single girder overhead cranes, working load 5,000kg with a span of 27 meters, suitable for intensive use and equipped with STAHL crane components with an ISO classification M6
The choice here was clearly not for the cheapest version, this fault is still made all too often, but for a robust version with a STAHL steel wire roof and drives in the ISO M6 class suitable for heavy work.

Speciale STAHL chainhoist
We got a complex request from a customer for a double chain chain hoist with a short headroom and suitable for a mono beam with a curve of 90º, radius 1.000mm, capacity 2x 750kg, but with the possibility of lifting a load in one of the hooks of 1.500kg.
Together with the engineerings department of STAHL cranesystems, we set to work to develop a suitable solution for this situation and of course we succeeded.
Special ATEX suspension crane
Another good example of a special AEX solution form STAHL cranesystems.
This is a suspended crane fitted with 2 pieces of ATEX wire rope hoists suitable for tandem lifting of a load.
Crane inspection and maintenance
Our crane inspectors are even active in the most remote areas of Europe, such as in IJsland where we have been able to realize a number of great projects in the past.
For a number of hydroelectric powerstations in Iceland, we have been asked to do a preliminary survey for upcoming major maintenace and modernization later this year.
Good preparation is very important in this case, as the locations are far away from civilization.
Davit crane inspection
In the late of this year we were able to inspect 48 davit cranes fot one of our customers at the Westermeerwind wind farm on the IJsselmeer.

Explosion-protected chain hoists.

Special ATEX lifting solution
In petrochemical industry explosive gas mixtures can occur even in open air and safety risks cannot be taken.
Often a standard ATEX solution is suficient, but a soon as it becomes special and a standard ATEX solution is no longer possible, then they quickly end up with the the specialists at STAHL cranesystems.
In this situation it handle a special ATEX wire rope hoist that is equipped with an articulated trolley in combination with a large lifting height. The articulated trolley ensures that the hoist can run under a mono beam with a curve. As power supply there was an ATEX V-shape festoon system been used.
Crane for an aggresive enviroment
Double girder overhead crane for aggressive environment
Often an overhead crane is often bought based on the purchase price and it is not properly examined whether the crane is suitable for the environment where it is used.
In the longer term, the maintenance and repair costs to keep the crane in operation can increase considerably.
Its better to make the right material and preservation choices in advance so that your new crane will last not only 10 years, but perhaps even 25 years.
Of course thorough annual maintenance remains necessary, but the repair costs will be considerably lower.
Recently delivered a new crane to the Vecom group, a specialist in surface treatment of stainless steel and other metals for the industry.
The crane is equipped with high-quality preservation, plastic festoon system, acid-resistant cabling and stainless steel fasteners.
Automatic grabbing crane
Recently and with proud we have succefully installed a fully automatic grabbing crane for continuous operation, a nice sample of modern technology.
