Classifications of Industrial Gantry Crane
Our gantry crane is designed and fabricated to meet the practical needs of customers, and you can find the most suitable type for your businesses in Aicrane.
- Single girder gantry crane
The AQ-MH type single girder gantry crane, also known as single beam crane, is mostly suitable for heavy load transportation up to 20 ton. It is widely used in various industries which require small and medium sized load lifting. The single girder crane has simple but solid structure and can greatly increase productivity of your business.
Industrial single girder gantry crane parameters:
- Load capacity: 3-20t
- Span: 8-35m
- Lifting height: 6-18m
- Lifting speed: 0.33-8m/min
- Trolley running speed: 20m/min
- Crane running speed: 20m/min
- Work duty: A3, A4
- Double girder gantry crane
AQ-MG double girder crane is a typical type of heavy duty gantry crane, which is highly demanded by many industries with heavier lifting needs. This type of lifting equipment can handle large and heavy loads quickly and efficiently, saving a lot of time and money for you. In addition to the double girder A frame gantry crane, we also provide U frame gantry crane for you to handle large sized objects, such as large containers.
Double girder industrial gantry crane parameters:
- Load capacity: 5-500t
- Span: 18-35m
- Lifting height: 6-18m
- Lifting speed: 1.5-11.5m/min
- Trolley running speed: 10-40.1m/min
- Crane running speed: 16-50m/min
- Work duty: A3-A7
- Industrial semi gantry crane
The semi gantry crane is designed and built to solve the space issue as it can save more workspace in your facility. The gantry crane usually falls in two main configurations, single girder and double girder, and it is adaptable for various indoor and outdoor places, such as workshop, warehouse, storage yard and shipyard.
Industrial semi gantry crane parameters:
- Load capacity: 5-32t
- Span: 12-30m
- Lifting height: 6-12m
- Lifting speed: 6-11.5m/min
- Trolley running speed: 37-40.1m/min
- Crane running speed: 37.7-40.1m/min
- Work duty: A3-A6
In addition, we supply cantilever gantry crane, indoor gantry crane, outdoor gantry crane and so on to suit your specific needs. A basic understanding of gantry crane types is very helpful for you to choose the right equipment.
What To Consider When Selecting An Industrial Gantry Crane?
When looking for an industrial gantry lifting equipment, it is very essential for you to consider a few questions so as to make the best decision. Some things to consider include but are not limited to:
- The obvious consideration is gantry crane specification, including lifting capacity, span and hook coverage needed for your crane. What material are you going to handle? What is the size of it? How heavy is the load?
- The frequency of use. Is the crane used intermittently or constantly?
- The way it moves. Which way would you like to make the gantry crane move, along rails or on rubber tires?
- How can the crane improve safety in the material handling process?
- How much money will you invest in a gantry crane?
When considering these questions, you should also think in the long run. For instance, a 5 ton gantry crane is enough for you right now, but a rapid growth of your business in the near future may require a larger crane, so thinking ahead can help you save a large amount of money. If you are not sure which type of gantry crane will best serve your needs, contact our sales manager online or email us. We will assist you in the whole selection process.
Industrial Gantry Crane Operation
The gantry crane can be operated by means of wireless remote control and cabin control. With respect to different lifted objects, working environments and work duties, you can choose a proper operation method.
Wireless remote control is an economical option for many small and medium lifting applications, and it requires a single person to accomplish the operation work. Besides, the remote control allows the operator to choose the best position as well as avoid dangerous locations in the operating process, effectively ensuring the personnel safety. It has many advantages, such as low cost, minimum maintenance and long working life.
Cabin control is more often applied in heavy duty gantry crane to ensure a secure operation. The cabin driver is required to receive professional training and acquire relevant qualification. For safety consideration, the cabin is usually outfitted with an emergency stop button. In case of emergency, you can press the button to cut off the power supply.
Industrial Gantry Crane Structural Feature
The crane mainly consists of gantry frame, hoist trolley, crane running mechanism and electrical device.
The gantry frame metal structure is mainly composed of main beam, end beam, supporting legs, and the lower beam, and it usually adopts Q235 and Q345 steel materials. Besides, each part is connected by high strength bolts.
The trolley consists of two main parts, hoisting mechanism and trolley running mechanism. The hoist mechanism is used to lower and raise heavy loads. Different lifting devices such as hook, grab, electromagnetic chuck and spreader are available according to the materials to be lifted. The trolley running mechanism drives the trolley to move forward and backward along main girder.
The crane running mechanism is used to drive the whole equipment to move in the working areas and it can be divided into track and trackless operation. With regard to different applications, working environments and ease of use, you can select the most suitable running mechanism.
The electrical system is usually equipped with several protection devices. For instance, for many outdoor applications, the crane will be equipped with rain cover to protect the electrical device.
