The gripper module is a block gripper that has been specially developed for the transport of foam blocks. To achieve the optimal cross drive speed and prevent swaying during the cross drive, the block gripper is fixed in the uppermost lift position.
Depending on the length of the block lifting system, 2 or 4 monorail trolleys and 1 or 2 block grippers are equipped with a central control system and a suitable power supply system for the electrical supply of the monorail trolleys and block grippers.
In the case of the mounted bridge design, the block lifting system is divided into two bridge systems. Single girder systems for lower loads and a track gauge of up to approx. 12 m or double girder systems for higher loads and a track gauge of up to approx. 30 m.
Portal block lifting systems are only used where the installation of crane rails is only possible on the hall floor.
