ADVANCED PRODUCT FEATURES
Some of the advanced product features include:
PROGRAMMABLE CONTROL UNIT
A Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) enables monitoring of FEM data including running time, work cycles, motor starts and emergency stops. This visibility of data helps ensure proactive maintenance to prevent breakdowns and avoid any potential downtime. Fault recordings make identifying and correcting faults a much quicker process.
ANTI-SWAY SYSTEM PROGRAMMABLE CONTROL UNIT
On the standard linear ramps used for horizontal crane motions, the load can sway during acceleration and deceleration. This swaying or oscillation can cause problems for control and positioning. The anti-sway applications offered in the Güralp GMD range increase safety, and protect the load and hoist – reducing maintenance.
Stress and accelerated wear can occur on the wheels of a crane when the rails are uneven, the wheels are different sizes, misaligned, or when wheels slip on the rail due to unbalanced loads. The anti-crab system is able to detect the speed the crane moves over the rail and adjusts to prevent slipping or misalignment.
LOAD-DEPENDENT SPEED CONTROL
Through the load cell on the electric wire rope chain hoist, the system recognises if it is loaded or not. The speed is adjusted proportionally to the load, increasing as the load decreases, decreasing as the load increases. With Radio Remote Control, an optional radio remote control unit allows you to monitor the weight handled errors, warnings and other system status information.
ELECTRONIC OVERLOAD CONTROL
As an additional safety feature, the Güralp GMD electric wire rope hoists have a built-in overload application which stops the system when overloaded.
VARIABLE FREQUENCY CONTROL
This feature provides speed control for when the crane is accelerated or decelerated, ensuring softer stops and starts to avoid shocks and impacts for increased longevity.

WHAT IS AN OVERHEAD CRANE USED FOR?
Overhead cranes assist in the lifting, transport and movement of large, heavy loads in a variety of industries. With a permanent crane mounted above your working area, heavy items can be moved to where they need to be without the use of forklifts or other machinery.
HOW DOES AN OVERHEAD CRANE WORK?
Overhead cranes provide 3-dimensional lifting for heavy loads: side to side; forwards and backwards; and up and down. The lifting device – the hoist or hoist crane – is mounted on a trolley for horizontal movement across a bridge beam connected to one or more horizontal girders (single or double beam) which are supported at either end by end trucks. The end trucks are attached at right angles to the girders and move on fixed runways. The horizontal travel of push-type cranes is powered manually by the operator; alternately, an electric overhead crane is powered by electricity.
WIRED ROPE HOISTS AS AN OVERHEAD SOLUTION
Electric wire rope hoists are the preferred winch system in many heavy duty overhead cranes around the world because of their superior tensile strength. They can be used across a range of load capacities, typically from 5 to 100 tonnes.
