Overhead Cranes in UAE
About Overhead Cranes
Overhead cranes are used in warehouses to more heavy or large objects to and fro from the dock area. It is also used in the production process to assemble unfinished products and to load manufactured goods onto railcars or open trailers or move objects from trucks to the storage area. Overhead cranes provide better safety and load control when compared to forklifts because with overhead cranes stack goods precisely and therefore the risk of accidents or dropping goods is avoided.
There are different types of overhead cranes such as top running cranes, under running cranes, single girder bridge crane, and double girder bridge crane. Top running cranes travel on rails that are mounted on runway beams. Under running cranes move on the bottom flange of the runway beam. The top running cranes can carry heavier loads when compared to the underhung or under running cranes. Double girder cranes support more weight than a single girder crane. Single girder cranes have a weight lifting capacity of fifteen tons but the double girder crane has to limit.
