EMH introduces double-girder free-standing crane29 June 2023
Engineered Material Handling (EMH) has extended its Nomad its free-standing crane range with the addition of a double-girder version.
The company said the double-girder cranes are “durable solutions for extremely heavy usage or when higher hook height is required for safe clearance under the hook as well as better space utilisation”.
EMH describes its Nomad range as “flexible solutions for manufacturers when needs change or when a traditional overhead crane installation is either difficult or impractical”.
Available in widths up to 50ft and heights up to 25ft, and with capacities of 2.0 tons to 10 tons, the cranes are modular and assembled using bolts, enabling them to be “dismantled, relocated, and reassembled when the need arises”.
In addition, the base plate design allows most Nomad systems to be installed without footers.
EMH can retrofit existing Nomad crane installations with double-girder capabilities.
Nomad cranes are available for one, two, three or four-cell manufacturing systems, with “safety-enclosed-type runway electrification, brackets that are welded on runway support columns, and with the conductor bars installed in the field”. Each system comes with mounting plates, bolts and bumpers and with top-running end-truck travel speeds of 80ft or 120ft per minute (variable frequency drive). Wire rope hoists provide lifting speeds of 16ft or 2.6ft per minute with trolley speeds of 65ft per minute (variable frequency drive). Bridge conductor cables are pre-wired to quick-disconnect plugs.
Nomad Cranes come standard with radio controls and each system comes complete with a hand-held AAA battery-operated radio controller. Rechargeable models are optional. A back-up pushbutton station can be provided as an option.
