Gantry cranes

Gantry or goliath cranes are versatile cranes used for lifting some of the heaviest loads in the world. They are used in heavy services like steel stockyards, pre-cast segment, construction sites and many outdoor applications.

They are the right material handling solution where the existing factory structure cannot bear the wheel loads of an overhead crane. Loads need to be handled outside the crane span as in the case of an overhang on either side of the rails or where there is a requirement to relocate the crane after work at a particular site is complete. ElectroMech has a proven track record of robust and gantry cranes capable of withstanding the rigours of such sites.

ElectroMech designs and manufactures gantry cranes in single girder and double girder configurations. These cranes can be completely customised for SWL, span, lifting height, speeds, and a class of duty depending on the application.

Our gantry/goliath cranes are designed for flexibility in hoisting. Single girder gantry cranes deploy standard hoists whereas double girder gantry crane uses either a standard ABUS crab or a fully customised open winch type crab.

Multiple hoisting trolleys running on the same bridge or auxiliary hoisting mechanisms on the main trolley offer the selection for safe and smooth operation. Variable frequency drives control the motion with precision. Depending on the site requirement, power supply is through a cable reeling drum or an onboard generator for outdoor services.
