Efficiency, flexibility, and sustainability in material handling with eRTG
November 23, 2023 11:59 am
The Electric Rubber Tyred Gantry Crane is a material handling solution with electric motors, high flexibility, and advanced safety features, ideal for diverse industries and load-handling needs.
The Rubber Tyred Gantry Crane referred to as RTG, is a gantry crane equipped with tires that grants it the exceptional ability to traverse outdoor yards, workshops, or manufacturing facilities with effortless ease. Being tyre-mounted, it does not require any permanently fixed rails, leading to extreme flexibility in movement across the shop or yard area. This can be credited to indigenously developed electronic steering controls. ElectroMech holds the distinction of being the pioneering company in India to introduce steerable and electrically operated RTG cranes to the market.
Rubber Tyred Gantry cranes are the ideal choice for various infrastructure construction projects where flexibility in material handling is important. They can be used to handle various objects, such as precast segments, steel structures, pipes, concrete slabs, etc. In addition to construction, eRTG cranes can be used in the wind energy sector to handle long tower sections, wind blades, and turbines. In the process equipment manufacturing industry, eRTG helps transport equipment to storage yards and further loading it onto trailers. eRTG is useful where the terrain is not suitable for installing gantry cranes or where temporary facilities for projects are being used. eRTG has been designed to be easily dismantled, transported, and installed at different locations.
Unlike traditional hydraulic-operated RTGs, eRTGs operate on electric motors, eliminating the problem of oil leakage. The use of electric motors also has several benefits over traditional hydraulic RTGs. One of the main benefits is that eRTGs produce fewer emissions, which helps reduce the environmental impact of material handling operations. Additionally, electric motors are more efficient than hydraulics and require less maintenance, resulting in lower operating costs.
eRTGs are also equipped with advanced features such as a load indicator, a gradient limiter, and other sensors that ensure the highest level of safety. eRTGs can be operated by a single person with a remote control.
Salient features of eRTG:
- Flexibility: the ability to operate on uneven surfaces with grade ability up to 5%
- Electrically powered: no hydraulics are involved (neither a power supply nor a runway are required).
- Intact Floor: There is constant pressure on the floor, irrespective of the load lifted.
- High Safety: Safe handling of long, heavy, and odd-shaped items
- Versatility: Capability to work on various surfaces, e.g., concrete, asphalt, compacted floor
- Reliability: ElectroMech’s proven technology equipment with guaranteed service support.
- Portability: Can be conveniently disassembled and transported.
- Low Cost of Ownership: low maintenance, uptime, high productivity, low expenses on developing infrastructure.
- Robust structure: designed for dynamic loading conditions.
