CRANE TYPES

​Overhead Cranes
Overhead Crane
  • A crane with a movable bridge carrying a movable or fixed hoisting mechanism and traveling on an overhead fixed runway structure. Our Preventative Maintenance plans will ensure your equipment meets all OSHA and HIOSH standards. Optional training for your staff to ensure you meet operating standards available per request. Our experts are available to reach all of Hawaii and the Pacific region.

 

Gantry Cranes
  • A type of crane built atop a gantry, which is a structure used to straddle an object or workspace. They are also called portal cranes, the "portal" being the empty space straddled by the gantry.

  • A crane similar to an overhead crane except that the bridge for carrying the trolley or trolleys is rigidly supported on two or more legs running on fixed rails or other runway.

 

Cantilever Gantry
  • A gantry or semi-gantry crane in which the bridge girders or trusses extend transversely beyond the crane runway on one or both sides. 1910.179(a)(5)

 

Wall Mounted Crane
  • A crane having a jib with or without trolley and supported from a side wall or line of columns of a building. It is a traveling type and operates on a runway attached to the side wall or columns.

  • EOT Crane

  • An E.O.T. crane stands for Electric Overhead Travelling crane. This is used for handling & moving a maximum specified weight of the components called capacity of the crane within a specified area. The crane can be operated manually or by electric power.

 

Single Girder Crane
  • Overhead traveling crane that is mounted on a single beam.

  • Single girder cranes have advantages like compact size and external shape, low headroom, light weight and small wheel pressure.

  • Single girder cranes need to conform to the general portal crane GB/T14406 - 1993 and the relevant provisions of the GB5905-86. In general the lifting weight should be under 50 t and the span within the 35 m. If the requirements of the leg width, high working speed or lifting weight are greater, it’s better to choose double girder crane.

 

Double Girder Crane
  • Overhead traveling crane that is mounted on a double beam.

  • Double girder bridge cranes are an important tool for the production process mechanization and automation in the modern industrial production and transportation industry. The he double girder bridge crane is widely used in the indoor or outdoor industrial and mining enterprises, iron and steel industry, railway transportation, port terminal, logistics and other departments and places

 

Pole Jib Crane
  • A crane having an arm guyed at a fixed angle to the head of a rotatingmast.

 

Semi Gantry Crane
  • A gantry crane with one end of the bridge rigidly supported on one or more legs that run on a fixed rail or runway, the other end of the bridge being supported by a truck running on an elevated rail or runway

 

Work Station Gantry Cranes
  • Workstation gantry cranes are used to lift and transport smaller items around a working area in a factory or machine shop. Some workstation gantry cranes are equipped with an enclosed track, while others use an I-beam, or other extruded shapes, for the running surface. Most workstation gantry cranes are intended to be stationary when loaded, and mobile when unloaded. Workstation Gantry Cranes can be outfitted with either a Wire Rope hoist or a lower capacity Chain Hoist.

 

Free Standing Cranes 
  • Free standing crane system is an engineered crane system that is attached to footings cut into the existing slab or into the slab itself if it meets the correct engineering criteria and not attached to the building. The system can be designed for a variety of applications. The building does not have to be engineered for the loads imposed on it by a free standing crane. These cranes can be put in without affecting the integrity of existing buildings and can be moved as needed. The crane systems from Craneveyor are completely free standing, while many other manufacturers require their cranes be attached to the building in some way.

 

Mobile & Truck Mounted Cranes

 

 

Mobile Crane
  •  A cable-controlled crane mounted on crawlers or rubber-tired carriers or a hydraulic-powered crane with a telescoping boom mounted on truck-type carriers or as self-propelled models. They are designed to easily transport to a site and use with different types of load and cargo with little or no setup or assembly.

 

Wheel Mounted Cranes (Wagon Crane)
  • Consists of a rotating superstructure with powerplant, operating machinery and boom, mounted on a base or platform equipped with axles and rubber-tired wheels for travel.

 

Truck Mounted Crane
  • A crane mounted on a truck carrier provides the mobility for this type of crane. This crane has two parts: the carrier, often referred to as the Lower, and the lifting component which includes the boom, referred to as the Upper. These are mated together through a turntable, allowing the upper to swing from side to side. These modern hydraulic truck cranes are usually single-engine machines, with the same engine powering the undercarriage and the crane. The upper is usually powered via hydraulics run through the turntable from the pump mounted on the lower. In older model designs of hydraulic truck cranes, there were two engines.

 

Side Lifter Crane
  • This crane is a road-going truck or semi-trailer, able to hoist and transport ISO standard containers. Container lift is done with parallel crane-like hoists, which can lift a container from the ground or from a railway vehicle.

 

All Terrain Crane
  • A mobile crane with the necessary equipment to travel at speed on public roads, and on rough terrain at the job site using all-wheel and crab steering. AT‘s combine the road ability of Truck-mounted Cranes and the maneuverability of Rough Terrain Cranes.

 

Pick and Carry Crane
  • A Pick and Carry Crane is similar to a mobile crane in that is designed to travel on public roads, however Pick and Carry cranes have no stabilizer legs or outriggers and are designed to lift the load and carry it to its destination, within a small radius, then be able to drive to the next job. Pick and Carry cranes are popular in Australia where large distances are encountered between job sites.

 

Carry Deck Crane
  • A carry deck crane is a small 4 wheel crane with a 360 degree rotating boom placed right in the center and an operators cab located at one end under this boom. The rear section houses the engine and the area above the wheels is a flat deck. Very much an American invention the Carry deck can hoist a load in a confined space and then load it on the deck space around the cab or engine and subsequently move to another site. The Carry Deck principle is the American version of the pick and carry crane and both allow the load to be moved by the crane over short distances.

 

Telescopic Handler Crane
  • Telescopic Handlers are like forklift trucks that have a telescoping extendable boom like a crane. Early telescopic handlers only lifted in one direction and did not rotate, however several of the manufacturers have designed telescopic handlers that rotate 360 degrees through a turntable and these machines look almost identical to the Rough Terrain Crane. These new 360 degree telescopic handler/crane models have outriggers or stabilizer legs that must be lowered before lifting, however their design has been simplified so that they can be more quickly deployed.

 

Crawler Crane
  • A crawler is a crane mounted on an undercarriage with a set of tracks (also called crawlers) that provide stability and mobility. Crawler cranes range in lifting capacity from about 40 to 3,500 short tons (35.7 to 3,125.0 long tons; 36.3 to 3,175.1 t).

 

Railroad Crane
  • A railroad crane has flanged wheels for use on railroads. The simplest form is a crane mounted on a flatcar. More capable devices are purpose-built. Different types of crane are used for maintenance work, recovery operations and freight loading in goods yards and scrap handling facilities.

 

Floating Crane
  • Floating cranes are used mainly in bridge building and port construction, but they are also used for occasional loading and unloading of especially heavy or awkward loads on and off ships. Some floating cranes are mounted on pontoons, others are specialized crane barges with a lifting capacity exceeding 10,000 short tons (8,929 long tons; 9,072 t) and have been used to transport entire bridge sections. Floating cranes have also been used to salvage sunken ships.

 

Ariel Crane
  • Aerial crane or 'Sky cranes' usually are helicopters designed to lift large loads. Helicopters are able to travel to and lift in areas that are difficult to reach by conventional cranes. Helicopter cranes are most commonly used to lift units/loads onto shopping centers and high-rises. They can lift anything within their lifting capacity, (cars, boats, swimming pools, etc.). They also perform disaster relief after natural disasters for clean-up, and during wild-fires they are able to carry huge buckets of water to extinguish fires.

  • A “crane” is a machine for lifting and lowering a load and moving it horizontally, with the hoisting mechanism an integral part of the machine. Cranes whether fixed or mobile are driven manually or by power.

  • An “automatic crane” is a crane which when activated operates through a preset cycle or cycles.

  • A “cab-operated crane” is a crane controlled by an operator in a cab located on the bridge or trolley.

  • “Floor-operated crane” means a crane which is pendant or nonconductive rope controlled by an operator on the floor or an independent platform.
