Gantry Cranes

Gantry cranes are large and powerful lifting machines used in various industries and construction sites for heavy-duty material handling tasks. They are characterized by their distinctive structure, which includes a horizontal beam (often called the bridge) supported by vertical legs or columns at each end. These cranes are designed to move heavy loads horizontally along the length of the bridge and vertically by raising or lowering the load with a hoist or trolley system.

Gantry cranes are highly versatile and come in various configurations to suit different applications. They can be categorized into two main types: full gantry cranes and semi-gantry cranes. Full gantry cranes have legs on both sides of the bridge and provide excellent stability and load capacity. Semi-gantry cranes, on the other hand, have one end of the bridge supported by columns, while the other end runs on a runway or rail system. This design allows them to be used in areas with limited space or where one side of the work area is obstructed.

Gantry cranes find applications in shipyards, construction sites, manufacturing facilities, warehouses, and more. They are used to lift and move heavy objects such as containers, machinery, and construction materials. Gantry cranes are known for their efficiency, precision, and ability to handle substantial loads, making them an essential tool in industries where heavy lifting and precise positioning are required.

Floor-mounted and portable lifting solutions

Gantry Cranes offer an economical solution to lifting materials in indoor and outdoor environments. Full and semi-gantry cranes provide a feasible and cost-effective alternative for handling materials. The gantry crane is ideal in applications with no requirement for supporting steelwork, beam structures, runway columns, or concrete foundations.

Portable gantry cranes use polyurethane wheels and are completely mobile and practical for light lifting, particularly in smaller manufacturing and fabrication shops. Businesses can relocate the entire crane within their facility or to a new location when required.

FULL GANTRY CRANES

Complete Flexibility

A full Gantry Crane is a type of overhead crane or bridge crane that has a runway at the floor level rather than the ceiling. Full gantry cranes are ideal for really large loads such as ships or engines, and are effective either outdoors or indoors. Single and double designs are available to suit your application.

Features:

  • Capacities up to 50,000 lbs
  • Single or double girder options available
  • Ideal for outdoor applications

 

SEMI-GANTRY CRANES

Optimizing Workspaces

Semi-gantry cranes allow you to maximize your workspace by not needing a runway system from the top of the building.

Features:

  • Capacities up to 20,000lbs
  • Ideal for centralized workstations
  • Ideal when existing building structures are not suitable to take overhead cranes

 

PORTABLE GANTRY CRANES

Economical and Versatile Lifting

The Portable Gantry is an economical solution for applications where lifting is required without the cost of adding supporting steelwork.

  • Capacities up to 10,000lbs
  • Span available up to 40’-0”
  • Fixed and adjustable height models are available
  • Non marking polyurethane wheels on swivel casters with swivel locks are standard
  • Lightweight & portable with easy on site manual assembly
  • Ease of use for relocations
