An optimal area coverage can be achieved by providing the overhang on both sides of the under slung crane. The highest position can be increased by a suitable crane and end carriage design
The best feature about the gantry crane is that it can be used for indoor as well as outdoor functionalities. More often than not, they can be seen being operated in open yards or compounds.
They can also be used for sheds where columns do not have enough strength for overhead cranes to be stationed on them. Gantry EOT cranes can also be utilised in open compounds of cement plants. Besides that, they can be used at the sites of flyovers and bridges that have cement girders. Even the heavy fabrication yards make use of these Gantry or Goliath cranes. The manufacturers design the main girder considering class, frequency of operation and duty cycle. Basically, the girder could be of different types, including RSJ, plate box or truss. Depending on the model chosen by the customers, these cranes may also sport a double girder design.
On the website of a reliable manufacturer like S.Cranes , individuals can come across a number of varieties among goliath EOT crane. They can browse through different features and acquire instant quotes on the equipment they desire to buy. S.Cranes assures that their designs have compact dimensions and are low weight as well as easy to operate.
These GANTRY CRANES/ GOLIATH Cranes can be seen working in open compounds of cement plants, casting of cement girders for bridges/ flyovers. These GANTRY CRANES/ GOLIATH Cranes are also seen being widely used in heavy fabrication yards. We have supplied several such GANTRY/ GOLIATH CRANES to L & T in Hazira, Orrisa and Oman.
Main Girder : The girder is designed considering the class, the frequency of operation & the duty cycle. The girder could be RSJ type, plate box type or truss type for single girder with its bottom flange as path for trolley of hoist. The girder could also have a double girder design for heavy duty applications, Where a suitable track is provided on top of the girders for travel of crab wheels.
The motors used in these machines are sturdy and durable at the same time. Other special features comprise limit switches, push button stations and maintenance platform with hand railing, to name a few. Investing in them would prove to be worthwhile.
Semi-Gantry Crane: At times, due to site constraints an overhead or a gantry crane cannot be used. However sometimes a semi gantry crane can be a workable solution for such sites. This crane has only one leg and hence is called as semi Gantry Crane. In this crane one end carriage runs on top of an existing rail, which saves space. Thus more working area is made available for the movement of load. Also cost is saved since existing rails and DSL are being used. The other end carriage is below the crane leg and runs on rails fixed at the ground.Download Brochure
To prevent over hoisting and over lowering of hook.
Extra light, handy, easy to operate. Wireless Radio remote controls are also conveniently and widely being used now.
Easy, simple & safe maintenance of the Crane extended partially or along the full length of the girder.
Electric / Electronic soft start modules electrically coupled to the long travel drives to achieve jerk free, cushioned and smooth starts.
Modular design, covering a very wide operating range. The systems are designed for ease of installation and maintenance and reliable operation, with fuseless circuitry, ducted wiring and non-screwed terminals. Each drive group is equipped with a motor overload protection device to provide effective protection against inadmissible overloading.
