With CTI crane systems, even the most complex material handling tasks can be solved cost efficiently
The optimum material handling in production is a decisive factor in efficient production processes. In many cases, automatic cranes are the best transportation means for different material handling requirements.
CTI Systems provides various types of cranes including:
All cranes are adapted to defined tasks and are specifically designed for:
With the correct locking devices, the crane trolleys can also be moved onto CTI monorail tracks systems or into the tracks of other crane bridges.
Loads of up to 65 tons can be transported quickly and reliably.
CTI offers every level of automation from manual operation through step control to fully automatic operation, all control types can be achieved.
Our grab and load suspension systems are tailored to precisely meet the individual application and the material to be transported.
1. OVERHEAD CRANES(bridge cranes)
Overhead crane systems enable travel across very long distances and allow several crane runways to be arranged next to each other in parallel.
The ´crane trolley runs suspended in the flange of the crane runway. From there, working in conjunction with the CTI interlocks, the crane trolleys can pass to the crane bridge in the adjacent track or cross over to a monorail system.
These crane systems can be supplied with single or double girder bridges. The latter can also carry CTI teleplatform trolleys teleplatforms are telescoping work platforms that allow maintenance personnel access to elevated working areas e.g. on aircraft.
2. INTERLOCKING CRANES
Equipped with interlocking devices, the operation of crane trolleys is not simply limited to either single or double girder crane bridges. The crane trolley can pass to the crane bridge in the adjacent track or cross over to a monorail system.
Furthermore, they can also be operated in changeover mode in the monorail tracks developed by CTI.
Travelling cranes run on top of crane runway beams and provide advantages for heavy duty operations. The bridges with spans of up to 30 m are able to carry loads up to 65 tonnes, without the need to be suspended from the roof structures.
4. AUTOMATIC CRANES
Automatic cranes - also known as “process cranes” can be designed from any of the earlier crane types. However, automatic cranes are designed to be fully integrated in production processes. They are usually equipped with a custom-made grab system, interlocking systems, indexing units or special devices aplied in various manufacturing processes. The PLC controls their use during the respective production phase.
