Eden Technology has set itself the goal of improving the energy efficiency of Mobile Gantry Cranes since it was established. The result has been a machine equipped with fully electric systems: lifting, translation and steering powered by a battery pack or an on-board generator.
The new machine model - which has been patented - is called EVA and introduces two absolute novelties:
- the whole engine is made up of electric motors
- the machine steers without any actuator device
This leads to significant energy savings (on average 18% and up to 22%), the reduction of plant engineering, the reduction of general costs and greater reliability due to the reduction of components (which among other things become exclusively electrical).
The high energy efficiency is ensured by a battery pack (industrial Lithium technology) or in the worst case, by diesel-electric generator, that powers the electric motors (VFD driven), it depends of the needs and specific need. Machine assembly and disassembly times have also significantly decreased.
All steering operations are carried out in the cabin with the usual joystick manipulator. The movement of the wheel carriages takes place without the use of pistons, racks, motorized fifth wheels or other mechanisms, but using the same electric motor that provides the translation.
The machine that makes your company greener!
