*In case you were wondering: The phrase "resistance is futile" became prevalent in popular culture from its use in the television show TNG. The Borg uttered the phrase in several Star Trek episodes and the film Star Trek: First Contact (which used the phrase as the tagline for the 1996 film).
The intelligent eepos design, the inter-product compatibility, and the practical accessories form the basis for minimised investment and operating costs. The simple installation also has a positive effect on the overall cost.
With the eepos modular aluminum system, you will choose a crane system of the next generation. This innovative technique has remarkable advantages.
Eepos - The easiest crane system to move:
Eepos systems are demonstrably one of the easiest crane systems to move of those that are available on the market at this point in time. In comparison to customary suspended runway systems, the operator of an eepos system requires only one-third of the power to move a load. Trolleys in the aluminium profiles also run distinctly more quietly. These are measurable and noticeable ergonomics
Load to be moved
0.5 - 0.8 kg
0.2 - 0.4 kg
1.3 - 1.9 kg
0.5 - 0.8 kg
2.5 - 3.8 kg
1.0 - 2.9 kg
3.8 - 5.6 kg
1.5 - 2.9 kg
5.0 - 7.5 kg
2.0 - 3.8 kg
Mono and Double Runways
The eepos standard system construction kit can also be used to realise special systems. The external nuts mean that add-on pieces can be added flexibilty. The eepos transfer units allow different crane rails to be connected where necessary, e.g. in adjoining production areas. This distinctly increases flexibility if for example, handling during installation work needs to be realised on different models in one production phase or if crane systems are needed at other workplaces in the event of production disturbances.
Manufacturing and materials
The Eepos aluminium profiles are manufactured by extrusion pressing. The material used is an EN AW 6063 T66 aluminium alloy. The colour is aluminium, anodized in its natural colour. The accessories are made largely of galvanized steel (suspension points, profile connectors, bolts, etc.). Some accessories are made of reinforced, high-performance plastics.
The design of our profiles, regarding the regulation of the tolerances, is based on DIN EN 755-5.
The standards DIN 4132 (Crane Runways), the DIN 15018 (Cranes) and the DIN 18800 , Part 1 (Steel Structures; Design and Construction) form the main basis for the construction of the Eepos crane system construction kit.
The accident prevention regulations (APR‘s) must be adhered, from the planning stage up to operating the crane system construction kit.
If dimensioning and installation are carried out an accordance with Eepos specifications, the systems conform to the technical regulations and the laws governing technical equipment as well as the APR‘s, DIN, VDE regulations and the Machine Directive 98/37/EC.
Manufacturer‘s declarations and data sheets are supplied with the Eepos crane system construction kit.
In addition to the above-mentioned regulations, numerous VDI directives are taken into consideration for construction.
The Eepos aluminium crane system successfully underwent inspection by the Employer‘s Liability Insurance Association on 03.05.2007.
In order to use Eepos products for their intended purpose, it is imperative that the safety instructions are taken into consideration.
In areas where fine dust is processed, varnish applied or other products are processed which are explosive, an Eepos crane system may likewise be used. Modifications to a few system components allow the systems to be used up to explosion protection category II. Please consult one of our sales team for your design principles.
For clean room applications (ISO classification 7, corresponding ISO14644-1) the grooves and openings of the profiles are sealed with cover profiles. We are pleased to offer you also all-in-one solutions including modification of the lifting equipment and other components. Please contact our sales team to discuss your design criteria.
