The eme Gantry Crane is a revolutionary piece of maintenance lifting equipment, combining lightweight and portable design with unprecedented ease of use. The eme Gantry Crane features eme's innovative SLP Design and Smooth-Ride System.
"When we sat down to design the eme Gantry Crane we asked ourselves one question: How do we make this piece of equipment easy to use? It was that guiding principle that caused us to rethink Gantry Crane design, from the casters all the way through to the trolley. From there we created eme's innovative SLP Design and Smooth-Ride System. The SLP Design forms the basis for the Gantry Crane's strong and lightweight chassis, while our Smooth-Ride System maximizes Operator safety and functionality," stated eme President, Michael Flynn. With its all aluminum construction, high weight-to-lift ratio (up to 26:1), and Operator friendly design, the eme Gantry Crane is the equipment of choice for Operators and Engineers.
Leveraging advanced technological design, eme has created the most user friendly Gantry Crane available in the marketplace today. The eme Gantry Crane was designed with one primary principle in mind: ease of use.
To achieve its goal, eme combined state-of-the-art computer engineering design and simulation tools with cutting edge material compound analysis to create the aluminum eme Gantry Crane. Through its intense design and testing process, eme created its innovative SLP Design and Smooth-Ride System. The innovative SLP Design gives eme's Gantry Crane its strong, lightweight and portable chassis that can be easily assembled by only one or two Operators. eme's Smooth-Ride System allows the Gantry Crane to be easily moved, safely by the Operator -- even under full load. The eme Gantry Crane features only premium parts and finishes throughout, including powdercoated surfaces, padded handles, adjustable legs, Grade Nine Bolts, and high grade aluminum welding. All eme Gantry Cranes come with engineer stamped drawings.
SLP Design: Easy to assemble
The SLP Design is extremely strong and light and its architecture is the underpinning of the Gantry Cranes' lightweight and portable structure. The SLP Design's all-aluminum chassis features several of eme's innovations including a super lightweight beam and DirectConnect, whereby the gantry legs bolt directly into the beam. The SLP Design's unique single piece lightweight beam, at just 5lbs per foot for most models, is lighter than an I-beam, but offers the strength of a full beam, but without the weight. The lightweight beam makes it easy and safe for Operators to build the eme Gantry Crane from the ground up in about 5 minutes.
Using plates for reinforcement, eme has created its unique DirectConnect feature, whereby the Gantry Crane legs bolt directly through the lightweight beam, creating unprecedented connectivity, structural integrity and simplicity. There is no need for an Operator to engage in dangerous conduct such as standing directly underneath the beam during assembly or using heavy rigging equipment to mount the beam. The lightweight legs can be easily moved along the lightweight beam to vary the span or maneuvered to create a Cantilever. Using the SLP Design, eme has created Gantry Cranes weighing as little as 155 lbs and Gantry Cranes that have lift-to-weight ratios of up to an unprecedented 26:1.
Smooth-Ride System: Easy to move
eme's Smooth-Ride System means that the eme Gantry Crane can be easily moved by Operators, even under load. eme's signature Smooth-Ride System consists of the 360 Locking Surround Beam Trolley and premium casters. The unique 360 Locking Surround Beam Trolley design allows the trolley to lock 360 degrees around the entire lightweight beam and ride on top of the beam rather than on a tiny fraction of the beam like most traditional I-beam Gantry Cranes. This innovation makes it impossible for the trolley to derail. By riding on top of the entire beam, the trolley is able to evenly distribute the weight across the surface area of the trolley, allowing for the trolley to ride smoothly across the beam while under load. The premium casters combined with the high structural integrity of the SLP Design allows the eme Gantry Crane to roll smoothly under load. The casters lock independently for swivel and roll, giving the Operator unparalleled flexibility.
