Cranes are an essential part of any port. Without them, the transport of cargo would be effectively impossible.
But you may be surprised how many products we can provide you with our large range engineered solutions enhance equipment durability, safety and compatibility.
Our rolling elements like Slewing bearings, Tapered roller thrust bearings, SKF Explorer gearbox bearings combine material and design innovations to increase bearing service life.The range includes angular contact ball bearings, spherical roller bearings, cylindrical roller bearings.
Crane lubrication. Vibration, high mechanical loads, contamination and moisture are all threats to bearing service life. Like any mechanical system, slewing rings and bearings in deck cranes and pulleys on cantilever arms require proper lubrication to function optimally.
SKF and Lincoln automatic lubrication systems deliver the exact quantity of the appropriate lubricant to the right place at the right time while the equipment is running – without downtime. Automatic lubrication systems are able to pump long distances within a wide temperature range and can reliably service difficult-to-access points. Just explore our Relubrication Program as well!
Increase service life with e-chain® cable carriers for port & terminal cranes. For over 30 years, high-strength plastic e-chain® cable carriers have been trusted and proven on thousands of port and terminal cranes worldwide. While unforgiving environmental factors such as high winds, UV rays, saltwater and extreme temperatures can cause traditional cable management systems such as festoons to fail, energy chain cable carriers are able to withstand the harshest conditions while operating reliably.
Downtime is costly in these conditions, but energy chains from igus® offer the high performance needed to ensure continuous, failsafe operation.
Port cranes serve a relatively simple, but critical, purpose: handling and transporting shipping containers to and from ships and throughout a terminal. DURBAL® offers a wide range of services in the field for cranes.
The product portfolio ranges from standard and high-performance rod ends and spherical plain bearings of various dimensional series and hydraulic rod ends in different versions.
