The calibrated, robust and shock-resistant KGY crane scale was specially developed for the requirements of long-term industrial use.
Due to the low overall height and the individually adaptable bearings, the crane lifting height is only minimally limited. Weighing via two integrated load cells provides the most accurate measurement results even under the toughest conditions. This crane model has a mechanical safety factor of 5:1 - so it can carry ﬁve times the rated load.
That's why KGY is one of the safest industrial scales on the market!
All EHP crane scales have a mechanical safety factor of 5:1 - this means that our scales carry ﬁve times the nominal load without tensile components breaking. Compared to almost all competitor products, our crane scales are not only certiﬁed for weighing. Due to their high safety standards, EHP crane scales can also be used for goods transport (according to EN 13155).
The digital crane scales LKe (CE-M approved) and LK (calibrated) have been specially developed for use in harsh industrial environments. With its solid die-cast aluminium housing and reinforced fro...
Weighing technology: Precision and High-Tech Quality
EHP Wägetechnik GmbH was founded in 1979 and was initially active in the field of machine and plant controls. Today, with more than 24,000 crane scales in use worldwide, EHP with its weighing technology is the leading suppliers of systems for weighing tasks.
The realisation that earlier weighing systems with analogue displays were unstable, difficult to read and weight values could not be transferred correctly led EHP to develop the first digital crane scale, initially for extreme foundry use in ambient temperatures of up to 1,600° C. The first crane scale was developed by EHP for use in the foundry industry.
In 1986, the Baden industrial company was the first company in the world to design a calibratable crane scale. Since then, the product range has been continuously improved and expanded. Today, EHP crane scales are used wherever goods are transported and handled by crane and at the same time have to be weighed quickly and efficiently. State-of-the-art radio technology transmits weight data from EHP crane scales over a distance of up to 500m to the user's IT infrastructure, even under the most difficult environmental conditions.
The second pillar of EHP Weighing Technology is compact and high-precision load cells. With a nominal load of up to 100,000 kg per unit, these precision assemblies are used in the components business.
Typical fields of application in addition to crane scales are silo, hopper, road and vehicle scales as well as special machine construction.
As crane scale and load cell manufacturer research, software/hardware development, design and production all comes from one source - all "Made in Germany".
