Freestanding Cranes Details

Freestanding Cranes Customized Options

It is important to determine the weight that the Freestanding Cranes will lift. The biggest reason is safety.
Lifting Freestanding Cranes more than they are designed for can be dangerous to your workers and increase the stress and maintenance of Freestanding Cranes and building superstructures.
You want to make sure your Freestanding Cranes can lift enough weight for your work today and in the future.

The lift height is the distance from the floor to the saddle of the hook when the hook is in the highest position.
Lift height is a crucial metric in any project as it ensures there is enough room to lift or lift and reposition the load you are lifting.

A workstation crane’s span is essentially its width across the bay-or the measured center-to-center distance between the runway beams.

It’s important because it determines how much material is required to build the bridge girders and most significantly affects the cost of the Freestanding Cranes.

Voltage requirements vary depending on your location.

The description of what you are lifting determines the type of crane you have, e.g. hook, grapple, electromagnet, C-hook, or double hook system.

If the Freestanding Cranes are installed outdoors, there is more to consider. Not only do you need to account for wind and weather, but the design must include covers to protect the hoist and motor when not in use.
And if it is a special environment, such as explosion-proof, etc., special overhead cranes are also required.

Freestanding Cranes Components

There are mainly bridges, crane walking systems, hooks, hoists, trolleys, and electrical equipment.

It consists of the main beam, end beam, walking plate, column, test cage, cabin, and platform.

Main beam

Welded box-type double main beam;
The steel plate material is steel Fe37 or Fe52;
The main end beam is contacted by high-strength bolts;
The main beam can be an ordinary track beam or a non-track beam;

end beam

The end beams are welded by rectangular tubes or high-quality steel plates;
The main beam and the end beam are contacted by bolts;

Crane Travel System

The ground control adopts a soft start, with a small current, no axial swing, less motor, suitable for the frequent start, and good green energy-saving effect.
The cabin controls our ZDR series tapered winding rotor, three-phase asynchronous motor, or electromagnetic brake motor, with high mechanical strength, compact structure, and adjustable braking torque.
The motor starts smoothly and brakes safely.
The sky wheel, platform wheel, and brake wheel are processed by medium frequency induction quenching and power frequency quenching, and the hardness of the heat treatment is controlled by a Leeb hardness tester.

Hook – Use a hook attached to the crane to support the lifted load (can also be a grapple, electromagnet, etc.).

Hoists – A device that lifts and holds, raises or lowers a load using a wire rope or chain hoist or electric winch.

Trolley – consists of a motor, a reducer, and a trolley frame.
The trolley supports the hoist and moves horizontally along the crane bridge in order to position the hoist and hook before picking up or lowering the load.

electrical equipment
The safety contact wire has high conductivity, low pressure, and high set electric sliding speed.
The wire ropes in the electric box are neat and easy to maintain.
The power supply of the trolley is provided by the flat cable.
Smooth sliding and beautiful appearance.

protective device
The outdoor crane is equipped with a hoisting mechanism, an electrical control box, and a rainproof device.
Set the trolley travel interval device.

anti-collision device

Sound and light alarm device

operating device
Pendants, Remote Controls, Cabin Controls
Dedicated cabins for overhead cranes or capsule cabs with a wide field of vision and comfortable operation.

Freestanding Cranes Type

Freestanding Cranes are usually small and light cranes, which can be divided into 4 types according to different frame structures: workstation bridge cranes, workstation gantry cranes, workstation jib cranes, and monorail cranes.

Workstation bridge cranes can be produced as freestanding workstation bridge cranes, ceiling-mounted workstation bridge cranes, headerless workstation bridge cranes, and wall-mounted traveling cranes.

What are Freestanding Cranes?

Freestanding Cranes are a type of machine or equipment used in an industrial setting that allows you to lift and move heavy objects from one location to another in a precise manner.
Freestanding Cranes consist of two parallel rails that rest on longitudinal I-beams and are contacted to opposite steel columns by brackets. The hoist, the lifting part of the electric winch, travels along the bridge.
Commonly used in various manufacturing companies and factories, the following are the applications of Freestanding Cranes:

  • aircraft manufacturing
  • Car manufacturer
  • chemical production
  • coal collection
  • put up
  • cement plant
  • glass factory
  • brick factory
