Why Swing Bearing Selection is CRUCIAL for Long Life

E-Crane Quality: Swing Bearing Selection
It has been mentioned that E-Crane uses "Single Row Ball Slewing Rings" by our friendly competition. Let us set the record straight and give you some genuine information on "Slewing Rings" used by E-Crane®.
The single row ball configuration with four point contact raceways is a commonly employed slew bearing for cranes and some material handlers. This design does not meet the E-Crane standards! Therefore E-Crane only uses 'Roller Slewing Rings' with a line contact between roller and raceway.
 New Job Story: Mulzer Crushed Stone


After three years of successful operation of their 1500 Series barge mounted E-Crane, Mulzer Crushed Stone ordered their
second barge mounted E-Crane in 2014 for their Shamblin Stone operation in Dunbar, WV.
This machine is used for unloading barges of aggregate. The E-Crane unloads the material directly into a hopper, located on an adjacent barge to the E-Crane barge. Because the E-Crane is barge mounted, Mulzer has the flexibility to transport the entire barge unloading system to wherever they need to perform barge unloading operations.

 Two Victories for two E-Crane Employees

  Ironman, Vichy, France
Dodentocht, Bornem, Belgium
Bart De Vrieze, an employee of E-Crane, won his medal for the Worldchampionship 2017 in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.

Sunday, August 27th, 2016, he  participated the Ironman competition in Vichy (France) and crossed the finish line after 8 hours, 59 minutes and 36 seconds on the 4th place in his age category and overall rank on the 21th place from 1.837 athletes.

It was a long and impressive effort to reach the finish. First Bart had to swim 3,8 kilometers. His swim was followed by a 180 km bike ride and finally he had to run a complete marathon (42,195 km).
On Friday August 12th 2016 several thousands of participants awaited eagerly at the Kloosterplein for the start of the 47th edition of the International 100 km Dodentocht.

Louis Remmerie, Service Engineer at E-Crane was one of the participants of this real historical event in Belgium and finished at 23 hours and 41 minutes.
