BCP long travel end carriages have been sold since the 1960’s. Balkankar Podem are established as a major European manufacturer of overhead lifting cranes, gantry cranes and bridge crane components.

Most up to date crane manufacturers now offer inverter frequency driven products for the travel motion of bridge cranes because they offer so many benefits.

Advantages of inverter driven 50hz overhead bridge cranes.

  • Frequency inverters reduce the cranes load sway and hook swing.
  • Enhances safety of the operation, reducing wear.
  • Extra smooth and gentle movement; starting and stopping, as well as travelling.
  • The brakes, gearbox and trolley wheels, are protected against extreme wear and tear. Reverse plugging cannot take place.
  • Reduced maintenance cost, as parts almost never wear out.
  • Has the ability to alter the cranes long travel speed, within minutes.
