Improved access shortens downtime
Downtime, scheduled and unscheduled, is unavoidable, but facilitating faster, easier servicing can reduce the impact and costs of downtime. Alimak container crane access lifts are an extremely cost-efficient means of reducing service time by enabling faster, safer access during downtime.
Most servicing on container cranes is at height, therefore, providing maintenance engineers and of course the crane-driver with a faster means of access, and the facility to transport payloads up to 600 kg at speeds of 0.8 m/s means that all downtime time is reduced. Typically as little as 1-minute from bottom to top in a lift compared to 15 to 20 exhausting minutes by ladder, stairs and walkways - possibly longer when carrying service tools and components.
Since 1971, we have provided crane lifts to Port Authorities around the world for ship to shore cranes as well as RTGs and RMGs. With almost 3000 installations in close to 100 countries, you will find Alimak lifts on the structures of every major crane manufacturer.
Come visit us in London and we will be pleased to tell you more. You will find us at stand number F2.
