Trolleyrail maintenance

Nowadays, most modern container cranes operate at high speed. Travel speeds up to 300 m/min are no exception. Together with the hoisting movement, the trolley movement is the most intensively used movement of an STS crane. On a track of less than 100 metres, wheel sets of modern container cranes easily move more than 10,000 km per year. The smallest misalignment of the steel wheels on steel rails has a major impact on the service life of the trolley rails and wheels.

Accurate rail mounting not only significantly slows the wear process, but also contributes greatly to the daily comfort of the crane operator, resulting in a completely different crane driving experience.

We can supply and install complete trolley rails for you.

Welding operations

Welding of short rail end pieces
The welding electrode we use, matches the quality and characteristics of the parent material as closely as possible. It is of the utmost importance that the weld is made professionally and according to the correct procedure in order to approximate the quality and service life of the rail.

The following properties are important in this respect:

  • Preheating
  • Dry and clean welding environment
  • New electrodes
  • Controlled cooling (hot box)
  • The weld is fully supported, no weld-through and is delivered without (shrinkage) stress.

Mobile milling on laying surface of cranes

In some cases, the bearing surface of the end pieces is permanently deformed. This is often the case with cranes which have waited a long time to be serviced or to replace the end pieces, where the deck is either broken in or deformed. In this case, the surface can be milled. For further questions, please contact our experts.

Trolley rail parts

In addition to the trolley rail maintenance, we also provide an extensive range of trolley rail parts, often available from stock, such as short rail end pieces, steel base plates, (trolley) rail clips and a custom-made maintenance platform for trolley rail.
