Radio controlled standard cranes supplied by Demag Cranes & Components can now be fitted with optional high energy chain systems, which can be used to guide power supply or control cables.
Providing for improved clearance dimensions, with smooth travel and minimum wear, these optional energy chain systems are available for the entire range of standard cranes from Demag.
They can be supplied for all:
- single and double-girder cranes
- cranes with rolled I-beam and box-section girders; as well as
- overhead travelling and suspension cranes equipped with rope and chain hoists.
The improved clearance dimensions of these energy chain systems can provide additional safety where cranes need to travel over obstacles, eliminating the need for a cable accumulating section. Removing trailing cables arrangements also eliminates the need for their C-rail support brackets.
The energy chain systems fully protect cables, producing little wear which consequently minimises the need for maintenance. Energy chains run smoothly in a specially designed channel mounted on the side of the crane girder. The underside of this channel is partly perforated, enabling dust, accumulated dirt and any moisture to escape.
In addition, Demag Cranes employs special multi-function channel brackets which, together with the matching attachment system, not only make them easy to install, but also enable other cables to be laid out of sight behind the channel.
