ErgoMove solution

07 June 2021

CROMATECH HAS relied on Blickle wheels and castors for some time to make sure that its transport units, some of which weigh up to 1,000kg, can be moved safely and reliably from point A to point B on train platforms and over long distances in rail depots.

Getting the transport units moving and bringing them to a stop involved a lot of work as the conventional wheels and castors were operating at their limits. This increased the risk of musculoskeletal disorders for the rail operator’s service employees who are responsible for moving the transport units around all day. 

Blickle had the ideal solution to meet this challenge: the ErgoMove 1000 electric drive system. This system is suitable for loads of up to 1,000kg and reaches speeds of up to 4 km/h. It reduces the amount of force required to get loads moving to a minimum, even on an incline. The integrated inversion brake reduces the physical strain involved in braking. ErgoMove also includes a steering support system. The system is controlled with an ergonomic handle which transfers the motions of the user to the drive castors.
