Hoosier Crane builds Under Running Bridge Cranes

Hoosier Crane can design and build your under running bridge cranes. An under running crane is typically an underhung, single girder crane where the wheels ride or operate on the bottom flange of a runway beam or track. The hoist/trolley wheels will ride on the lower flange of the bridge beam or track.

Under Running Overhead Cranes

Under running bridge cranes are typically for capacities under 10 tons and are most commonly ceiling supported for maximum floor space utilization. Your current building design will need to be evaluated to assure that the ceiling mounted, under running crane design is the correct choice. In cases where the ceiling supported systems are not feasible, freestanding support systems are also available for under running crane applications. Under running bridge cranes will also maximize the hook end approach of the hoist. The simple reason is that the bridge beam will be located under the runways and can extend (cantilever) out past the runway beams.

Other names that under running bridge cranes are commonly called: underslung cranes, underhung cranes
