Goliath Gantry Crane

These cranes are essentially the same as the regular overhead cranes except that the bridge for carrying the trolley or trolleys is rigidly supported on two or more legs running on fixed rails or other runway. A gantry crane has a hoist in a trolley which runs horizontally along gantry rails, usually fitted above a beam spanning between legs which themselves have wheels so that the whole crane can move at right angles to the direction of the gantry rails.
These cranes come in all sizes, and some can move very heavy loads, particularly the extremely large examples used in shipyards or industrial installations.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ):

A Gantry or Goliath Crane is a type of overhead crane that has a horizontal beam supported by legs at both ends. It operates on a runway or track installed at ground level, allowing it to move horizontally to lift and transport heavy loads.

  • Shipping yards
  • Ports and harbors
  • Construction sites
  • Steel mills
  • Warehouses
  • Outdoor storage facilities

  • Bridge: The horizontal beam that spans the width of the crane and supports the hoist mechanism.
  • Legs: Vertical structures that support the bridge and provide stability.
  • Hoist: The lifting mechanism attached to the bridge for raising and lowering loads.
  • End trucks: Wheeled assemblies mounted on the bridge that allow horizontal movement along the runway.

  • Versatility: Suitable for outdoor and indoor applications, including uneven terrain.
  • High lifting capacity: Capable of lifting heavy loads ranging from a few tons to several hundred tons.
  • Accessibility: Can reach areas that are difficult to access with other types of cranes.
  • Flexibility: Can be customized with various features such as adjustable heights and spans.

  • Containers
  • Machinery and equipment
  • Construction materials
  • Bulk cargo (e.g., sand, gravel)
  • Steel beams and pipes
  • Large fabricated structures

  • Overload protection: Prevents the crane from lifting loads beyond its rated capacity.
  • Emergency stop button: Allows immediate halting of crane operations in case of emergencies.
  • Limit switches: Prevents over-travel of the crane along the runway.
  • Anti-collision systems: Detects and avoids collisions with obstacles or other cranes.
  • Safety barriers and warning signs: Alert personnel to the presence of moving cranes in the area.

Gantry Goliath Cranes can be powered by electricity, diesel, or hydraulic systems, depending on the application and environmental conditions.

Yes, Gantry Goliath Cranes can be customized to meet specific requirements regarding lifting capacity, span, height, and operational features.
