Outdoor gantry crane is the gantry lifting equipment used for outdoor lifting purpose. Outdoor cranes are widely applied for loading and unloading material in construction site, industrial and mining enterprise, rail way engineering, logistics companies, and automobile factory. Outdoor industrial cranes have many types to meet different working conditions, such as girder cranes, rubber tyred gantry crane, rail mounted gantry crane, cantilever gantry crane, rolling gantry crane, travelling gantry crane, heavy duty gantry crane etc. Ellsen Group, one of famous gantry crane suppliers, produces best quality outdoor gantry crane for sale.
Types of cranes for outdoor lifting work
Ellsen produces kinds of lifting gantries to meet customers’ needs. What’s more, span, height, loading tons, gantry wheels, gantry trolley, gantry beam, crane remote, crane controls, crane hook and other gantry crane all can be customized according to different outdoor gantry crane design.
L type single girder gantry crane is applied to general material handling service in outdoor freight yard or along railway lines, such as loading, unloading, lifting and transferring work. Given certain lift height, the overall height of L type gantry crane is reduced out of its structural features. As a result, the cost is lower. L type outdoor gantry crane is featured by deadweight, light wheel load and reliable performance!
Single girder industrial gantry crane is applied for highway, bridges, port station and other construction workshops for general handling and lifting operations. The whole machine adopts truss structure, light weight, small wheel pressure, and reliable performance. The whole gantry crane system uses a single main beam, the trolley on both sides of the main beam under the rope, could lift larger loads.
A type double girder overhead gantry crane is used for lifting material outdoor. Three-in-one reducer is adopted for long travel and cross traverse mechanism for easy maintenance. What’s more, it has complete safety measures, such as wind siren, break-proof shaft, overturn-proof etc.
U type double girder gantry crane also can be used for outdoor lifting and transporting work. As there is more space under legs of gantry crane, it is fit for conveying larger products. Saddle support isn’t needed for U type gantry crane, so overall height of crane is reduced given certain lift height.
MH model electric hoist gantry crane, is used together with CD, MD model electric hoists. It is a track travelling crane with small and medium size. According to girder types, it can be divided into two types, box type and truss type. This gantry crane is s regular crane, widely use at open ground and warehouse to load, unload, grab materials. It has two controlling methods, namely ground controlling and cabin’s controlling.
BMH model electric hoist gantry crane, one kind of semi gantry crane, is used together with CD1 MD1 model electrical hoist. This lifting gantry is a general purpose use crane, often used in shop to lifting goods. The product has ground controlling or remote controlling system to unload or grab materials. Using the special gear box can make the working area widely.
Rail mounted gantry crane is used in dock and yard station. It adopts a special container hook which can lift 20 feet, 40 feet and 45 feet standard containers. Electric drive system is full of AC frequency conversion, PLC control speeding, CMS intelligent monitoring and management system to monitor the running state of equipment. Three-in-one reducer is adopted for long travel and cross traverse mechanism for easy maintenance. Safety protection devices can ensure the security!
Rubber tyred gantry crane is dedicated machinery, container yard stacking operations are widely used in ports container freight yard. Using a dedicated container spreader which can lift 20 feet, 40 feet, 45 feet standard container and hydraulic storage tanks. Crane and trolley travelling mechanism adopt the three-in-one reducer, easy for maintenance. Tires can achieve 90° turn, change field operations, and with the function of oblique 20° and 45°.
Port wheel mounted gantry crane with shield (DMC for short) is mainly used for installation of cutter and field of shield machine, which is underground trenchless device, and used for lifting of duct piece supporting tunnel during work progress. Professional spreader with 360° rotation is fit for installation of cutter from different angles. Double trolley mechanism is applied for lifting cutter by tandem operation or lifting duct piece by separate operation. Exposed gear drive is applied for lifting mechanism to save cost.
Differences between outdoor crane and indoor crane
There are a couple different types of gantry cranes that you can have installed. These cranes are actually built on top of what is called a gantry. This is simply a structure that will support the hoist and trolley that will be used to move the merchandise up and down, plus back and forth. They can be called portal cranes or overhead cranes, and even bridge cranes in some cases. The main distinction between most of them is that some of them are built outdoors, whereas others are built indoors, and each one requires a completely different support structure.
Wide applications of outdoor gantry cranes
Most businesses require equipment and materials to be moved either from one part of the premises to another, or on and off vehicles for delivery or receiving. If you need to lift heavy weights, a crane or a hoist will be needed. A basic hoist in its simplest form will lift loads from a fixed point where a block and pulley is suspended. These were originally used on the outside of a warehouse to lift goods to various floors levels, comprising simply a wooden or steel beam mounted against a wall above an opening or doorway. To move goods or equipment around a building yard, you will need a crane. The crane is a machine which can lift weights and move them horizontally to another position. The main reason for their use is to save labor, improve efficiency and the work environment.
