Moving cranes safely
Cranes are indispensable wherever heavy loads need to be moved efficiently and precisely. They are powerful tools when it comes to moving materials on construction sites or handling cargo in ports. The prerequisite for ensuring smooth crane movements is safe operation of the different axes. The wide range of movements that have to be carried out by tower cranes and luffing jib cranes or gantry and overhead cranes require powerful drive technology and a reliable control system.

Solutions for operating cranes
From automating the overall function and special technology modules to typical drive systems in the undercarriage, hoisting gear and rotation as bottom or top slewing cranes or crane trolleys, KEB’s system solution focuses on the efficient and safe movement and operation of the various axes. This is implemented, among other things, in an easily configurable crane control system.
Axes connected to the electrical power supply use different charge states to exchange energy and – in conjunction with energy supply and recovery devices – supply consumers in the immediate vicinity.
Motors and gears with positive connections and holding brakes round off the entire package and convert movement commands into motion.
