ELMA Technology has over 80 years of experience in the automation of crane and hoist systems. The last few decades our engineering department has become a true specialist in developping, building and commissioning the drive & control systems for cranes.
Being the representative of Spohn & Burkhardt, a well-known manufacturer of control stands and joysticks, and Autec, a manufacturer of remote control, Elma has access to a large database of innovative solutions. Elma focuses on the development and supply of complete drive- and control systems for cranes, ranging from conventional DC systems to the latest hybrid systems.
The design of the drive and control systems will be done based upon your technical specifications and requirements. These systems are filed in detail in a Technical File in accordance with the new SIL or PL standard as required by the Machinery Directive.
All our designs comply with the EMC directives.
Projects, whether they are small or large, for a new or an old construction, Elma is your partner. Arguments for refurbishing an old system are the extension of the lifetime, reducing the “down time” and therefore increasing productivity and reducing the “total cost of ownership”. Apart from AC crane systems, our engineering department has extensive knowledge and experience of DC installations. Also hydride solutions using the regenerative energy is one of our specialties.
