ANUPAM LAUNCHES HIGHLY EFFICIENT, RELIABLE and ECONOMICAL DESIGN RUBBER TYRED GANTRY CRANE (RTGC) for container handling at CFS and DRY PORT.

CFS is the place where containers are stuffed, de-stuffed and aggregation/segregation of export/import cargo takes place. With the growing volume of trade, the need for quick clearances of goods at the port has been gaining importance. Accordingly, the concept of CFS has grown in importance along with the development and growth of ports. A CFS is an extended arm of Port/ICD where import/export goods are kept till completion.

At the CFS, normally the containers are handled by Reach Stacker on average of 20 moves/hour. Considering the available soil strength and economics for improvement of soil strength, staking height at CFS of standard ISO container is restricted to one over three to four. There is no definite organized plan for staking of container at many CFS and many times one ISO container undergoes 4-5 time handling before completion.
ANUPAM launches low value and highly reliable RTG Cranes, as an option to Reach Stacker.

Specially Designed Cranes for Ecovix, Brazil

First ever such crane designed in India as per CMAA (Crane Manufacturers Association of America) standard

Anupam achieved another milestone by supplying seven custom designed EOT cranes to Ecovix, Brazil. These specially designed and customised cranes were delivered to Ecovix for their shipyard at Rio Grande, Brazil, in August 2012.

Out of these seven, two cranes of 150t (75/75)t + 75t capacity with 45.6m span are innovatively designed for 180 degree rotating/tilting operation of shipyard panel lines. These cranes have three hoists; the upper trolley has two hoists with lifting capacity of 75t each, suspended from both end of the girders. The lower trolley has one hoist of 75t capacity which tilts and rotates the panel lines at 180 degree. These cranes have two trolleys located on two wide box girders – upper and lower. This arrangement of the trolleys and hoists facilitates tilting a full section of panel lines in the air by means of the lower trolley passing beneath the upper trolley. By lowering the block of the lower trolley, the load can be transferred to the two hoists of the upper trolley. After the lower trolley has passed beneath the upper trolley and raised the load again on the other side, the manoeuvre of tilting the section through 180 degree is completed. All the electrical controls such as panels, PLC, resistors are housed inside the wide box girder. 

Remaining five cranes are of various capacity and packed with modern features; two cranes of 26t (15t on magnet) - 45m span EOT cranes with Rotating Spreader Beam, two cranes of 21t (15t on magnet) - 30m span gantry cranes with Fixed Type Lifting Beam and one crane of 21t (15t on magnet) - 30m span EOT crane with Fixed Type Lifting Beam. All these cranes are mechanised with sophisticated PLC controlling system, anti sway technology, wireless transmission of control signals and permanent magnets for handling steel plates of 16m (l), 3.5m (w) and 38m (th).

The Anupam cranes are also packed with special electrical features such as PLC controlled through LAN, remote controlled special anti-collision system and position controlled motion to meet the stringent operational requirement set by customer. The main speed drives are of high efficiency and high performance vector/inverter drive. They are designed and constructed to provide quiet operation and require little maintenance. All the drives are equipped with capabilities to protect the control circuitry. Back-up protection for the drive system is provided by circuit breakers external to the drives. The Drives are made to signal the PLC if any of the parameters have gone off-limit or if there is any failure of any function. The speeds of drives are step-less and variable from low to full speed. Accelerations and decelerations are linear and have provisions for limitations of acceleration or deceleration to pre-set value even if any excessive fast controller action is being applied. Decelerations are accompanied electrically and re-generatively with the brakes being applied only when the motion has slowed down to essentially stopped condition.

These cranes are very special in its kind and designed for the first time as per the CMAA (crane Manufacturers’ Association of America) standard, in India by ANUPAM, says Mr. Tejas Parikh, General Manager-Contracts, Anupam Industries Ltd. Anupam is constantly engaged in evolving design innovation with pioneering spirit and this achievement is one such example of our commitment acknowledged by the customers.
