Overhead cranes can help improve the safety and efficiency of your assembly, storage, or production facility. There are many applications for overhead cranes such as aerospace, automotive, aviation, marine, mining, railroad, steel, and utility manufacturing or maintenance operations.
- Bridge Cranes are an overhead crane that transport it’s load around the working area. They have three main components: parallel runways, hoist, and bridge. The bridge connects the runways, which allows the hoist to move forward and back. The hoist raises and lowers the load and can move left and right. Bridge cranes can be configured in single and double girder systems.
- Gantry Cranes are free standing overhead cranes. They are used when an overhead runway system is not optimal. They utilize a track or rail system to guide their freestanding legs however, they can directly on the floor.
- Jib Cranes are overhead lifting devices often found in smaller work areas for repetitive or unique lifting applications. The can be very versatile when used in conjunction with overhead bridge cranes.
- Monorails can be configured as a freestanding structure or supported from a building structure or roof. Monorail systems can be designed with curves, elevation changes, and branches. This can allow the monorail system to maneuver to different areas throughout your facility.
- Enclosed Track Crane systems provide an ergonomic and cost effective alternative to conventional overhead crane systems. These systems really shine when working height and space is restricted.
