March 11, 2021
NOMAD XW, from EMH, offers overall widths up to 60 ft, overall heights up to 25 ft, and capacities from 2 up to 20 tons.

NOMAD XW, part of the NOMAD Freestanding Crane line, offers overall widths up to 60 ft (18 m), overall heights up to 25 ft (7.6 m), and capacities from 2 to 20 tons. Modular NOMAD Cranes provide flexible solutions for manufacturers when needs change or when a traditional overhead crane installation is either difficult or impractical.


The base plate design allows most NOMAD systems to be installed without footers. With bolted assembly, NOMAD Freestanding Crane Systems are easily dismantled, relocated, and reassembled when the need arises.


NOMAD Cranes are available for one, two, three or four-cell manufacturing systems, with safety-enclosed-type runway electrification brackets welded on runway beams, and with the conductor bars installed in the field. Each system comes complete with mounting plates, bolts, and bumpers, and with top running end-truck travel speeds of 80 or 120 FPM (VFD). Wire rope hoists provide lifting speeds of 16/2.6 FPM with trolley speeds of 65 FPM (VFD). Bridge conductor cables are pre-wired to quick disconnect plugs.


NOMAD Crane Solutions come standard with radio control. Each system comes complete with a hand-held AAA-operated radio controller. Rechargeable models are optional. A backup pushbutton station can be provided as an option.
