Basic information about cranes

Overhead cranes

The gantry is a device that works in intermittent motion, which is equipped with a lifting and lowering mechanism. Overhead cranes belong to the larger category of cranes, i.e. lifting and transport devices used for vertical / horizontal movement of loads or people.

The gantry cranes are made of:

  • supporting structure
  • crane travel mechanism
  • trolley
  • the driving mechanism of the trolley
  • lifting mechanism
  • electrical apparatus and installation
  • safety devices
  • controls
  • cabins - in constructions with a cabin

Most often, overhead traveling cranes are used in short-term transport in industrial halls, in landfills, on railway sidings and in shipyards.

We divide the cranes:

  • for control: control from the working level, remotely, from the cabin
  • due to the type of drive: manual, hydraulic, electric, pneumatic, mixed
  • due to the construction of the supporting structure: bridge, gate, suspended
  • due to the purpose: general purpose hooks, special
