How to choose this product
A gantry crane is a crane which uses a hoist to move heavy objects. The hoist is frequently attached to a rail or multiple rails allowing the user to move the object horizontally. The gantry cranes are mounted on rails or rubber tyres. They also exist in semi-portal meaning that one side is fixed onto a wall or immovable support while the other is mounted on rails or wheels. Often used in heavy industries these cranes can also be adapted to workshops to transport lighter loads.
Gantry crane are particularly suited to lifting very heavy objects and have been used in dry docks for shipbuilding. The crane straddles the object (often ship engines) to place them for the construction of the ship. Lighter versions of these cranes are also used in workshops.
The gantry cranes are mounted on rails to allow movement in a linear direction or can be mounted on rubber tyres which allows the crane to be more versatile. For the semi-portal one side of the crane is fixed on a rail on a wall while the other side is mounted on rails or wheels parallel to the wall.
How to choose
The application and the size of the object to be transported will dictate the choice of gantry crane to be used.
