Single-girder bridge crane : a prosystem light handling
For all things related to light handling, AMIO Levage offers a concept based on three profiles in steel, meaning that monorails, single-girder bridge crane and double-girder overhead cranes can be constructed quickly and easily. The PROSYSTEM 125, 200 and 260 profiles can cover a load capacity range up to 2000 kg. They are surface-treated with a shockproof powder coating and are delivered as standard in lengths ranging from 1 to 8m in RAL 1007 yellow. Other colours and surface treatments are available upon request.
Conical connections guarantee excellent alignment between profiles and are made using CHC bolts and square nuts which are easy to fit. This type of assembly means that the system can be adapted according to user needs.
Patented trollies for moving the overhead crane girders single or double and electric chain hoists are durable, quiet and offer a resistance of about 1% of the weight of the load.
Whether handling flows are linear, meshed, or branched, the use of the Prosystem modular light handling system means that savings of up to 30% can be made on each installation.
This is a versatile solution for moving loads of up to 1500 kg. Modular and high capacity, the technology of the PROSYSTEM monorails means that linear monorails can be built quickly and easily with or without PROSYSTEM curves, the PROSYSTEM shunting system, or a PROSYSTEM turntable. It is state of the art and complies with EC directives relating to machinery and general accident prevention guidelines. Suspended monorails hung according to PROSYSTEM technology require minimal maintenance. Monitoring should take place at least once per year. This also goes for all lifting devices regardless of brand or type of device.
Prosystem monorails can be fitted with curves with a maximum load capacity of 1250 kg. The curves are available in 15°, 30° and 45° and can be freely connected to one another with common connections. The curves can be suspended, either from the building structure if previously planned, or from an independent metal structure.
Prosystem monorails with curves can be fitted with a flat cable or conductor rail for the electrical supply to the hoist. Other parts are available such as turntable, shunting as well as locking systems for the entire Prosystem monorail range.
The PROSYSTEM single-girder crane
The PROSYSTEM single-girder crane with standard headroom is the most ergonomic solution due to its three-dimensional construction. Its maximum capacity is 1500 kg, its coverage is extensive and load swing is minimised. The manual push trolley automatically centres the load prior to being lifted. The entire system can be directly suspended from the roof structure, if initially planned, or mounted on a freestanding support frame, fixed to the floor by chemical anchors.
The PROSYSTEM reduced height single-girder crane has a maximum load capacity of 1500kg. Its construction is ideal for areas with limited headroom. This means that lifting height can be maximised. The profiles are raised between two tracks to increase lifting height and reduce the distance travelled by the hoist carriage. The system can be directly suspended from the roof structure if this is self-supporting, or mounted on a freestanding support frame, fixed to the floor by chemical anchors.
The PROSYSTEM double-girder crane
This maximises capacity due to distribution of the load over the two girders. The maximum load capacity is 2000kg. The hoist can be suspended from the bi-rail steering trolley or rested on it, increasing lifting height. It is located between the two bridge profiles. Its capacity is vast and load swing is minimised. The manual push trolley automatically centres the load prior to being lifted. The entire system can be directly suspended from the roof structure, if initially planned, or mounted on a freestanding support frame, fixed to the floor by chemical anchors.
The PROSYSTEM raised double-girder crane has the same specifications as the previous crane, the differences being lifting height and direction. The two girders are mounted onto mechanical parts to raise the two girders to a maximum height, reducing carriage travelling in view of the fact that the crane girders are located between the crane rails.
Light handling motorisation
All PROSYSTEM light handling systems handling use horizontal movement through manual pushing, but all of the above proposed solutions can be fully motorised, either with or without bipolar or unipolar motors that can be controlled using frequency converters or switches.
