Zig-Zag on the EOT crane – the somewhat different cable routing for lifting applications

Jens Göbel | 13. August 2020

For many lifting applications, a compact and space-saving solution is extremely important. However, the more cables have to be routed together in a system and the longer the lifting height, the less the choice of possible solutions. When the already presented liftband or e-spool reach their technical limits, the only thing left is the so-called zig-zag installation method.

Zig-zag on the indoor crane – the unusual cable guidance for lifting applications

Jens Göbel | 24. April 2020

For many lifting applications, a compact, space-saving solution is extremely important. But the more cables coming together in a system and the higher the stroke, the fewer the plausible solutions. If the liftband or the e-spool reaches its limits, the zig-zag installation is often the only thing that remains.

e-spool – the alternative to the cable drum on an indoor crane

Jens Göbel | 21. April 2020

The e-spool is a chain-based drum application without sliding contacts. Ideal for applications and load-carrying equipment constructions that have no room for a collection basket (lift strap). The cables guided in the chain are not exposed to tensile strain, which has a positive effect on the service life of the cables.
