A specialty of GPI are the EMS trolleys with lifting unit for the hanger using a specially designed scissor lift. The so-called pantograph scissor lift of GPI. In contrast to the conventional scissor lift, which should be known well from the lifting table construction, the GPI scissor lift allows a very compact design.
Amongst others, it offers advantages in length and width of the lifting units, whereby even with long strokes up to 4,500 mm it is still possible to realize a pitch of 3,000 mm, depending on the dimensions of hanger and material to be conveyed, at least on straight tracks. In addition, due to design and style itself, weight of the lifting unit is significantly lower in comparison to the conventional construction. Thus, for GPI it is possible to realize also EMS trolleys with lifting unit and hanger for the C1-rail profile (180x60 [mm]) with a payload of 750 kg, wherein the weight of the hangar itself, which is mounted on the lower frame of the lifting unit, has to be included in the payload.
The product is already applied at the heavy EMS (Rail profile 240x80 [mm]). In this case, car bodies with a own weight of 2.5 tons carried in a hanger built like a portal frame, are transported in a final assembly line and lifted or lowered to the specific working heights of the sequenced work stations.
A large number of GPI made EMS trolleys with lifting unit and hanger have proven themselves in daily production. They are in use everywhere, where within the production process the product has to be offered to the employee easily accessible on different height levels. Amongst other it can also be used as lifting shuttle, if between pick-up and delivery location logistic routes or similar are situated. Many other applications are possible.
Basically a redundant array of lifting belts to reduce risk of falling is used. Switch for Belt crack monitor the operation. Any place where persons are directly at risk, especially, for example on overhead jobs, the lifting unit is made sufficiently reliable with other elements, so that a safety certification by an official body in full will be met.
Let us know your requirements. We certainly will find the right solution.
Classic EMS technology has a vast field of applications and found its right place in a lot of industry branches within the last decades. Amongst others connection of production or manufacturing lines, transport of goods to and from storage in- and output maybe in combination with picking or passing of assembly lines are typical cases of use.
By use of track components as straight, horizontal curve, 2-/3- way switch convergent/divergent, turn table, star switch, crossing, parallel shifting station, lift station, vertical bow for inclination / declination track nearly every required routing can be realized. But the transport task can only be satisfied by the right combination of carrier and hanger (load frame). Possibly light design in whole is a key to success and therefore GPI has a special focus on it.
The sector of electric monorail systems is one of the special strengths of the GPI professionals. For complex transport tasks with flexible demands the EMS is the right choice. You can either choose the traditional construction in accordance with C1 (VDI directive 3643) for loads up to 1 ton or the larger version for loads up to 6 tons.
However value of benefit can be taken not till than a reasonable application in form of a well reviewed routing layout with efficient interfaces for loading and unloading goods is elaborated, maybe including operator activity and development of an according individual load frame. Especially looking on this aspects GPI has the claim to consider these requirements from the beginning in planning and configuring your EMS-installation including structure and installation steelwork from the very beginning.
Wether EMS installations in logistics, in production or assembly areas or for AWT (general goods transport in hospitals), the GPI-team knows where to look at and leads your project through all necessary phases in a reliable and constructive manner – from the concept to the turnkey hand-over. Well-tried as well as most modern technology for the energy and signal transmission can be considered in the same way as professional project management by use of current utilities and tools.
