Different Types of Container Gantry Crane for Sale
We mainly produce three kinds of gantry cranes to suit different container handling needs. Before choosing a crane for your application, you should take a close look at these types of gantry cranes and their differences in order to make the best option.
- Rail mounted container gantry crane
This RMG crane is widely used in rail transfer yards and large storage yards to load, unload, transfer and stack a large quantity of containers. This type of gantry crane usually travels on a fixed rail path and mainly consists of main beam, rigid and flexible legs, running trolleys, lifting mechanism, crane running mechanism, electrical system and cab.
The main beam can be outreached at one side or both sides to form a single cantilever or double cantilevers, or else you can choose a cantilever-free model. The use of cantilever structure is determined by the working site, the container lifting and transferring requirements. For instance, when you need to move containers through two legs, the rail mounted container crane with double cantilevers is the best option as it expands lifting space and has greater headroom. The RMG container crane without cantilever has relatively simple structure as it does not require containers to pass through the space between two legs.
Rail mounted gantry crane parameters:
- Lifting Capacity: 30.5t~100t
- Lifting Height: 15.4~18.2m
- Lifting Speed: 12~40m/min
- Work Duty: A6
- Power Supply Mode: cable reels or slip line
- Rubber-tyred gantry crane
This RTG crane is a mobile gantry crane widely applied in container terminals and depots.
