When it comes to any production, choosing the right crane for the job is essential to ensuring your project runs smoothly and safely. Understanding the different types of cranes and which one will suit your needs is critical. At Hoosier Crane Service Company, we want to help avoid any costly downtime by initially supplying the correct equipment for your needs.
Overhead cranes are a common sight at almost any manufacturing plant. They are chosen for their versatility, reliability, and use in lifting heavy loads. They can lift 1/4 ton - 100 tons, which equates up to 200,000 pounds. Selecting the right overhead crane parts can help you make sure that your crane operates smoothly to get the job done day in and day out.
The difference between overhead cranes and gantry cranes comes down to structure. Gantry cranes have the main girder with two (one) support legs that "straddle" the object or workspace. This design makes them useful in a wide range of applications from general maintenance to production. Oftentimes, workspace is tight, resulting in custom gantry cranes to fit your company’s needs.
Jib cranes come in many forms; the most frequently seen examples are: free standing i-beam, wall bracket jib, wall cantilever jib, mast style jib, workstation jib, and articulating jib. These cranes stand out by being cost-effective and typically have a quick installation time compared to other material handling options.
All cranes are custom designed to fit your specific needs and the materials you are working with. Understanding the crane uses, and limitations can help you make sure that you get the right equipment for the job the first time.
