Truss gantry crane is suitable for carrying out small and heavy duty lifting work in a variety of outdoor areas such as port, railway, shipyard and quay. The truss structure is designed to prevent the attack of strong winds and storms. Therefore, the truss type gantry crane has numerous advantages such as light weight, low cost, small wheel pressure and excellent wind resistance. With regard to different girder constructions, the truss gantry lifting equipment can be classified into single girder and double girder.
We manufacture multiple types of gantry cranes to serve a wide range of applications. We are also capable of designing customized gantry lifting system for your special needs. Contact us now to get a free quotation.
Truss Gantry Crane Design
Our truss gantry cranes are designed to cater to individual lifting applications of customers. This truss type gantry crane falls in two main configurations including single girder crane and double girder crane. Each type can be built with certain designs as needed.
- Single girder
The single girder gantry crane is a kind of small and lightweight gantry crane, usually equipped with AQ-CD and AQ-MD electric hoists. European standard hoist is also available on demand. The gantry crane is an efficient lifting solution to handle small and medium sized materials with capacity in a range of 3 ton to 16 ton. The crane span generally ranges from 12 to 30 m.
The single beam gantry crane usually has low lifting speed, simple structure, light dead weight, easy fabrication and installation, making it perfect to lift and move light loads.
Single girder truss gantry crane parameters:
- Lifting Capacity: 3t~26t
- Span Length: 12~30m
- Lifting Height: 6~18m
- Working Class: A3, A4
- Traveling Speed: 20~30m/min
- Lifting Speed: 3-8m/mim or 0.3/3-0.8/8m/min
- Double girder
The double girder crane has the capability to undertake heavy lifting tasks. Its capacity is in a range of 5 ton to 200 ton and span ranges from 18 to 35 m. This style of truss lifting system is a typical A frame gantry crane, and the main beam can reach beyond the crane runway on one side or both sides to form cantilevers. The supporting legs can be divided into rigid legs and flexible legs, and the latter is designed to compensate structural deformation caused by the change of temperature.
Compared with single girder crane, the double girder gantry crane has larger capacity, greater lifting height and speed. It also has strong rigidity, high utilization, wide adaptability and stable performance.
Double girder truss gantry crane parameters:
- Lifting Capacity: 5t~200t
- Span Length: 18~35m
- Lifting Height: 6~18m
- Working Class: A5
- Traveling Speed: 28~45m/min
- Lifting Speed: 3.5~12.5m/min
With respect of different working environments and lifting requirements, the gantry crane adopts different designs, such as with or without cantilever, light duty or heavy duty truss design. According to the type of materials to be dealt with, a variety of lifting tools are available such as hook, grab, electromagnetic chuck and spreader.

Tips on Safe Use of Truss Gantry Crane
Each year many gantry crane accidents occur because of human errors or components failure. Some accidents may not only threaten the safety of property, but people’s lives, thus it is critical to ensure a safe operation.
For crane operators, they need to receive professional training and obtain relevant certificate before taking the jobs. During operation, they should strictly comply with operation manuals and always focus on the lifting work. Any negligence may lead to serious or fatal accidents.
Regular inspection and maintenance of gantry crane should be conducted in order to make sure it is in a good working condition. Due to truss structure design, this gantry lifting system has a large number of welding points, so a frequent detection of welding points should be conducted so as to ensure a secure operation. Besides, a variety of safety devices like rain cover are usually equipped to protect the equipment.
