The Advantages of Gantry Cranes

Overhead gantry cranes come in many shapes and sizes, but what they all have in common is how they can bring significant advantages to your facility. Whether you use a portable gantry crane or a rail-mounted double leg gantry, you can expect to experience a number of benefits.

These can include:

  • Optimized Efficiency: Many of these models feature automated controls, making them much easier for workers to use. Technologies including programmable logic controllers and other computerized systems allow for highly precise movements. They also make it possible for operators to have the cranes position themselves automatically and use preset routes for standardized tasks. This means they can get work done much faster and deliver increased throughput, which means you’ll get more done in less time.
  • Better Control: With advanced digital automation found in many of these machines, they can operate more efficiently and with greater precision than other material handling solutions. Many of these units come equipped with variable frequency drive (VFD) controls, which automatically adjust the frequency of the motors. VFD controls allow operators to set customized speeds for specialized applications. They also make acceleration and deceleration much smoother, preventing sudden starts and stops that can create unsafe working conditions. Another advantage of VFDs is that they mean less wear and tear on the brakes and other components, which in turn means a potentially longer lifespan for the equipment. This advanced technology adds up to higher productivity as well as enhanced safety for those working around them.
  • More Flexibility: Whether you have a portable 2-ton gantry crane or an overhead model, these units take up less space than other solutions. With the ability to easily wheel them out of the way or keep them mounted high above workers’ heads, you’ll have more floor space to get the most out of your workstations. The portable units also can be relocated to another space to maximize their usage. They also enable workers to lift heavy loads in areas where forklifts can’t reach or would not be safe to use. The ability to assemble and disassemble them quickly also makes them easy to deploy virtually anywhere throughout your facility.
  • Lower Costs: Because these cranes can life a substantial amount more than other systems, you can get more work done with fewer pieces of equipment and less manpower to operate it. This means you may be able to save a significant amount in terms of operating costs, adding to your bottom line. The portability and versatility of these cranes also make them cost-effective alternatives to other solutions. Rather than choosing an overhead crane system that requires a permanent installation, you may be able to use one of these gantry cranes to provide the same lifting capacity without the same outlay of capital. The experts here at American Equipment can help you sift through your options and select the mobile crane solution that makes the most sense for your specific applications.
