WHAT IS AN OVERHEAD CRANE USED FOR?

Overhead cranes assist in the lifting, transport and movement of large, heavy loads in a variety of industries. With a permanent crane mounted above your working area, heavy items can be moved to where they need to be without the use of forklifts or other machinery.

HOW DOES AN OVERHEAD CRANE WORK?

Overhead cranes provide 3-dimensional lifting for heavy loads: side to side; forwards and backwards; and up and down. The lifting device – the hoist or hoist crane – is mounted on a trolley for horizontal movement across a bridge beam connected to one or more horizontal girders (single or double beam) which are supported at either end by end trucks. The end trucks are attached at right angles to the girders and move on fixed runways. The horizontal travel of push-type cranes is powered manually by the operator; alternately, an electric overhead crane is powered by electricity.

WIRED ROPE HOISTS AS AN OVERHEAD SOLUTION

Electric wire rope hoists are the preferred winch system in many heavy duty overhead cranes around the world because of their superior tensile strength. They can be used across a range of load capacities, typically from 5 to 100 tonnes.

ELECTRIC HOISTS

With many years of design and Engineering experience, our Electrical hoist range offers an efficient and reliable option for your day to day operations. By minimizing downtime, eliminating additional labour and the increased control of suspended loads, our hoists offer greater accuracy and reliability, which minimizes operational costs on a daily basis. With load ranges from 80Kg to 100t, our electric hoist units will cover all your lifting and materials handling requirements. 

MANUAL LIFTING EQUIPMENT

Manual lifting equipment is generally referred to manual chain blocks, lever hoists and push-pull or geared trolleys. These are meant for infrequent use and usually have lower duty cycles as a result. With manual hand cranking operations, these units and applications are generally utilized for low duty areas, which are generally small service areas with limited access, and where vertical lifts are preferred. These units range from 125Kg to 20ton .
