Suspension rails for electric cranes to lift engines
The requirement was to replace the original suspension device with a new one and at the same time to modify it so that it can reach a larger area and make the handling less physically demanding. Another requirement was to replace the steel structure attached to the roof trusses, which supports the suspension device itself. As a result, we designed the construction differently, so that in the end the operator moves with less mass or weight. We used a suspension device with light aluminium profiles and two bridges. After that we attached an electric chain hoist with cable control to each of them.
Approximately 60 metres of a steel rope with a diameter of 5 mm have been used for this suspension device. Individual ropes ensure the stability of the device and reinforce the entire construction.
