Cranetech Heavi Gantry Cranes
What is a Heavy Gantry Crane?
A standard gantry crane a type of overhead crane with a girder that is supported by freestanding legs at both ends. The girder can be single or a double girder configuration depending on the application or lifting requirements.
CraneTech manufactures heavy lifting gantry cranes. These are also called hevi gantry cranes and can be either portable or semi-portable, depending on the needs of the client. The crane design is available in both single and double girder formats and can be used both outdoors and indoors.
The gantry crane is an excellent alternative to a normal overhead crane when there are restrictions due to the existing building structures and where additional supporting steelwork for the crane would result in unnecessary costs and a loss of floor area.
Typical uses of the gantry cranes are in applications such as stockyards, the concrete industry, and the marine and shipbuilding industry.
CraneTech uses a specially developed helical worm drive to ensure a minimum profile of the floor carriage. The efficient and simple steel structure minimizes wheel loadings and allows for an easy erection due to the pin-jointed legs.
The marine and shipyard industry requires heavy and safe lifting requirements. BD CraneTech has many years of experience manufacturing hevi cranes for our clients.
The construction industry often uses tower cranes. However, it has been shown that gantry cranes can improve safety and productivity. Heavy gantry cranes are useful for bigger infrastructure projects.
Heavy gantry cranes are essential in the petroleum and gas industry. Hevi lifting cranes are required for material handling quickly and safely.
