The equilibrium crane, more easily referred to as the E-Crane®, is a truly revolutionary and multifunctional crane for heavy-duty material handling applications. Designed for bulk material handling, storage, process feeding at ports and terminal, steel mills, scrap-processing facilities, anywhere high production handling of bulk materials is required, the E-Crane® is especially well suited for heavy-duty production cycles and difficult working conditions. The E-Crane® features an unprecedented reach of up to 50 meters, lifting capacities of up to 45 tons, push down force equal to 50% of the rated capacityand significantly reduced power consumption and operating costs.
The E-Crane design is based on an ingenious parallelogram style boom that provides a direct mechanical connection between the counterweight and the load. This unique system ensures near perfect balance throughout its full working range. Compared to conventional cranes that require as much as 80% of their available energy just to move the boom, stick, and grab, the E-Crane principal results in significantly lower maintenance and lower operating costs.
