Why a truss gantry crane is lightweight and anti-wind designed
If you are going to install a gantry crane at your facility, there are two important aspects to consider. First of all, it should be lightweight which means it will be easier to put into place. It should also have the ability to deal with high wind conditions, similar to what many people experience when they are working on the docks. This is usually made possible when you are installing what is called a truss gantry crane. It uses a truss on the top, instead of the solid beam, which will make it less likely to be affected by the wind, and can also add extra support due to its construction.
Overview of a truss gantry crane
These gantry cranes are designed with a truss overhead. A truss is a structure that consists of multiple girders that all work together to create a supporting structure. For example, if you have ever seen a bridge that is made in a truss design, these are some of the most stable bridges that are in existence. They are constructed with joints, also referred to as nodes, and it is because of the nodes that it will have a much higher tensile strength. In the same way that you add rebar to concrete in order to increase tensile strength, the same is true when you are designing this type of bridge. In regard to a truss gantry crane, the truss up top will not only make it less likely to be affected by windy conditions, but it will also add extra strength to the entire apparatus. You could actually add trolleys and pulleys that could lift substantially more without compromising the structure of this type of gantry crane unit.
Which type of truss is best?
The type of truss that is used will depend upon the company that you purchase it from. There are only a few different characteristics to choose from. This will include simple, planar, and space frame trusses that are all designed to provide extra support. There are different types of trusses including lenticular, bowstring, Pratt and Warren. All of these will work very well with a crane that you are installing, helping to provide the extra support that you will need for moving your merchandise.
