e-spool – the alternative to a cable drum on EOT cranes

Jens Göbel | 15. July 2020

The e-spool is a chain-based drum application without a slip ring. Ideal for applications and lifting devices that have no space for a collection basket (lift band). The cables routed in the chain are not exposed to tensile stress, which has a positive effect on the service life of the cables.


Cable routing for lifting devices on indoor / EOT cranes

Jens Göbel | 26. June 2020

The lift band was specially developed for vertical applications on indoor / EOT cranes. A spiral energy chain that can be stored in a collecting basket. The cables are routed through the spiral energy chain without being exposed to any tensile stress. The retainer belts attached to the system ensure that the energy chain is safely stored in the special basket. The system is light, requires very little space on the lifting device and it is almost maintenance-free.


ready for smart – does that make sense in offshore applications?

Richard Habering | 26. May 2020

Offshore – where service work costs millions: is that really necessary? Energy supply at drilling rigs, construction machines and shore power applications – cold, wet, dirty and heavy. Real stress for thick cables, hard hoses, but also for sensitive bus and data cables. Too much stress leads to breakages – which usually cost a lot […]


Preventing electrostatic discharge Chapter 1: ESD clothing

Maria Burkanova | 18. May 2020

Our bodies are very good electrical conductors. Electrostatic charging is almost unavoidable. Electrostatic charging occurs if you rub two materials together and then separate them, for example. Simply walking around can be enough to cause an electrostatic charge of several thousand volts. The invisible hazard – as described by experts. “ESD protection” is therefore very […]


Short or long strain relief teeth for triflex R?

Marius Glaue | 14. April 2020

The use of strain relief components for energy supply systems is very often forgotten or simply underestimated and, when they are considered at all, they are often the wrong ones for the task at hand. This is extremely annoying and costs an unnecessary amount of time. But doing without strain relief is no solution either […]
