At the end of December 2016, E-Crane commissioned a new 700 Series, Model E4290 PD-E at Stelimet, Genk, Belgium. Stelimet was looking for a crane for feeding a shear and stockpiling scrap around the shear. The ideal situation for Stelimet is to stockpile as high as possible in order to optimize the use of the storage area. As the shear is operated by remote control, an excellent view into the shear was absolutely necessary. Also, the liability, safety, energy consumption, and service reaction time of the supplier were important issues for Stelimet.

The "E" in E-Crane stands for Equilibrium. The design is based on a parallelogram style boom that provides a direct mechanical connection between the counterweight and the load, ensuring that the E-Crane remains balanced throughout its working range. Compared to conventional cranes that require as much as 80% of their available energy just to move the boom, stick, and grab, the E-Crane makes gravity work for you instead of against you, reducing horsepower requirements and power consumption by up to 50%, and significantly reducing maintenance and operating costs.
The E-Crane series offers models with up to 50 tons duty cycle capacity and 150 ft/50m horizontal outreach. Its modular design allows each E-Crane to be tailor-made to the client's specific requirements.
