The main purpose of the Double girder gantry crane?

Applied to materials handling between fixed span, and it’s one of the most widely used cranes with the largest number of varieties of different specifications.

Widely used in carrying, assemble and unassembling general weights, and also can equipped with various special hoists for a special operation.

Forbid to use in the conditions as easily combustible, explosive, corrosive (acid, alkali, plating, steam, etc.)


Hook double girder gantry crane has a strong carrying capacity (up to 550 tons);
Large span (span is between 12 and 35m, and can be customized if needed);

Good overall stability (double beams, lifting equipment on the top, better force);

Variety of varieties (common type is the most used type if, in a special environment, it can also be specially made for waterproof, explosion-proof, etc.)

The whole machine has a novel structure, beautiful appearance, and good manufacturability (better wind resistance, longer service life)

Standardization, generalization, and serialization of parts and components (frequent use will inevitably cause some parts to be damaged, don’t worry, we will provide you with parts quickly, and at the time of your initial purchase, we will prepare additional vulnerable parts for you Parts, the best possible way to ensure the normal operation of your gantry crane)

Application Scenarios

Double Girder Gantry Crane is mainly used in Steel, Forest Products, Inter-modal, Biomass/Pellet, Concrete, and many other industries. Our product can be used in outdoor workplaces for loading and unloading operations, such as port, open yard, stockyard, shipyards, warehouse, railway freight station, construction site, etc.

Main Structure

Main composed of gantry mounting, trolley & crane traveling mechanisms, and electric parts.

Gantry Mounting

1.”A” type structure, using tack bolts and contacting bolts to settle main parts;
2. Provided max. the room between legs to ensure the objects could be lifted between legs at the cantilever end;
3. All partial rail box beam structure main girder, the camber meet standard (0.9~1.4)/1000S, flange and bolts contact main girders and legs;
4. Box structure legs, both sides contact separately with main girders and lower separators.
5. Q235B or Q345B materials (similar as Fe37 or Fe52).


Consists of a trolley frame, lifting mechanism, and trolley traveling mechanism, etc.

Trolley Frame

Welded of steel plate with high intensity and strong rigidity.

Equipped with lifting mechanism and trolley traveling mechanism.

Lifting Mechanism

1. One set of independent driving devices for single hook and two separate driving devices for double hook (main and auxiliary).

2. Lifting mechanism working principle, through high speed rotating of YZR type crane special motor, and gear coupling drive involute gear reducer. Then the low-speed shaft of the reducer turns the wire rope drum. As long as the control of motors and their positive and negative rotation can achieve the lifting function of the hook.

3. In order to ensure the security and reliability of the lifting mechanism, the brake is installed on the high-speed shaft of the reducer. And the load limiter is installed on the bearing pedestal which supports the drum to avoid overload.

Trolley Traveling Mechanism

1 . Trolley traveling mechanism working principle, the involute vertical gear reducer driven by a motor. The low-speed shaft of the reducer contacts to the active wheel of the trolley frame in the way of centralized driving. The motor adopts double-output gear and there is a brake on one end of it.
2 . There are four wheels installed under the trolley. Two of them are active wheels and the others are driven wheels. Driving devices include 1. Motor; 2. Brake; 3. Reducer; 4. Compensating shaft; 5. Coupling; 6. Wheels, etc.

HxPnR high conductive, small pressure.

Security Protection

1. overload & short circuit protection

Master air switch in the master circuit, small air switch or fuse protection as overload, and short circuit protection in the control circuit. Overcurrent & overload protect functions are set in all control cabinets.

2. zero position protection

 Every controller should be back to zero position, then restart the master contactor when the crane starts or restart to work.

3. limit protection

(1)limit switch in the lifting mechanism breaks the control circuit when the hook gets the limitation for ensuring security.

(2)limit switches in both trolley and crane travel mechanisms break the control circuits when traveling to the limit position. It can only travel to the other side.

(3)limit switches are also set in the door of the cabin and balustrades. The master power can be started when these doors are totally closed.

(4)emergency protection

The emergency switch could quickly break the power in an emergency.

(5)overload protection

Overload limiter is set in lifting mechanism, it could break power, alarm with sound and light and show the number when overloaded.

Control Mode

Cabin control, fully enclosed, steel plate bending production with enough strength and stiffness, broad vision;

Linkage control design could ensure drivers operate safely and comfortably. Safe and convenient passageway, comfortable seat. The cabin is equipped with a fire extinguisher, the display screen of overload limiter.
