Hoist UK's Single Girder Overhead Cranes are manufactured to the highest standards using components from Verlinde, and can be supplied for loads up to 80,000kg and with spans of up to 30 metres. This single girder crane system is configured with a VT Electric Wire Rope Hoist. The system benefits from a travelling motor gear box ensuring that the motor starts quietly and smoothly whilst offering 2 travelling speeds and variable travelling speeds. There are also top running end-carriages that feature direct drive wheels, rubber buffers and the end carriages are fastened with a plate bolted onto the girder.
The Single Girder Overhead Crane (Top Running with Electric Wire Rope Hoist) technical information:
Before you chose an overhead crane there are important factors to consider, including your desired load capacity, service rating, mechanical and electrical components, remote/radio control, as well as pivotal factors and limitations of your facility which includes building size, obstructions, installation, inspection and preventative maintenance.
The end user required a manual overhead crane system rated to 7,000kg to be integrated into a newly developed maintenance plant for their hydroelectrical scheme to power a mountain gondola.
Our design engineers coordinated the design of the crane system with the contractor from the early stages of the project so that we could make use of the buildings steelwork for installation. Access restrictions were a particular challenge because the 7 metre crane bridge needed to be installed before the plant’s roof went on.READ MORE
