Engineered Material Handling (EMH; Valley City, OH) recently introduced the new NOMAD XW, expanding and extending its NOMAD Freestanding Crane line and capabilities. With NOMAD XW, overall widths up to 60 feet with overall heights up to 25 feet and capacities from 2 tons up to 20 tons are now possible. Modular NOMAD Cranes provide flexible solutions for manufacturers when needs change, or when a traditional overhead crane installation is either difficult or impractical. Specifically:
- Base plate design allows most NOMAD systems to be installed without footers. With easily bolted assembly, NOMAD Freestanding Crane Systems are easily dismantled, relocated and reassembled when the need arises.
- NOMAD Cranes are available for one, two, three or four-cell manufacturing systems, with safety-enclosed-type runway electrification brackets welded on runway beams, and with the conductor bars installed in the field.
- Each system comes complete with mounting plates, bolts and bumpers and with top running end-truck travel speeds of 80 or 120 FPM (VFD). Wire rope hoists provide lifting speeds of 16/2.6 FPM with trolley speeds of 65 FPM (VFD). Bridge conductor cables are pre-wired to quick disconnect plugs.
- NOMAD Crane Solutions come standard with radio control. Each system comes complete with a hand-held AAA operated radio controller. Rechargeable models are optional. A back-up pushbutton station can be provided as an option.
