Crane and its varieties

The construction of the crane beam (or bridge crane) is not as complicated as it might seem at first glance. By and large, it consists of end carts and the beam itself. They are manual or electric, even remote control is provided. A beam crane also includes subdivisions by variety. For example, you can find a supporting crane-beam, supporting on two beams, suspended or suspended on two spans.

The above structures are quite widely used in various industrial and erection and lifting works. In all cases when the movement of weighty objects is implied, moreover, the direction of the processes can be different, both in the vertical direction and in the horizontal.

Basic crane

This type of bridge crane is installed directly on the supporting structures (above). The control is electric, carried out by the operator from below. In addition to the stationary remote control, a remote control method is also provided. As seen from practice, if necessary, several crane beams can form a single mechanism, due to which the load easily moves through the entire space of the workshop, or even through several workshops. What is convenient quickly and profitably.

Overhead crane

This device is characterized by the presence of a movable beam, which walks along two crane tracks. It is controlled by an electric hoist, which in turn is located on the moving beam itself. Lifting and moving loads is possible both in horizontal and vertical directions. The wheels that are located at the ends of the movable beam and attached directly to the rails directly affect the performance of the structure, and they, in turn, are located at the very top of the workshop or warehouse.

Important to remember! The carrying capacity of overhead bridge cranes does not exceed five tons. Heavier loads are moved by cranes, which imply a support structure.

It is not recommended to buy overhead cranes on hands through unknown sellers, since in the future there may be certain numerous difficulties in installation work and installation of the purchased structure. Practice shows that in this case all the shortcomings fall on the shoulders of the buyer, and if the equipment sold was flawed (defective), then they will have to be eliminated directly when setting up the equipment. Therefore, it is better to purchase new equipment, the question of price will become more profitable already at the end of installation.
