Underslung Overhead Bridge Cranes
This type of overhead crane hangs from the underside of fixed runway rails, hence the term underslung. The runway rails are typically supported by a roof structure or alternatively can have their own support structure extending down to the floor below. This crane design is predominantly configured as single girder crane and can be supplied with wire rope or chain hoists to lift the load.
Benefits of this design include:
Standard Features Include:
- Reduced load swing, making the crane safer to use for even inexperienced operators
-Reduced stress on the crane structure, wheels and driveline components meaning that the
crane will last longer, require less maintenance and cost significantly less to run
Customised configurations are available including:
-Multiple hoists per crane -Tandem crane operation
-Anti collision and exclusion systems Ikusi Radio remote system for convenient, wireless control.
-Modifications for mining, petro-chem., foundry and galvanizing industry use
