Heavy Overhead Cranes Details

Customized Options

It is important to determine the weight that the overhead crane will lift. The biggest reason is safety.
Lifting overhead cranes more than they are designed for can be dangerous to your workers and increase the stress and maintenance of overhead cranes and building superstructures.
You want to make sure your overhead crane 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.

An overhead 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 overhead crane.

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 overhead crane is 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.

Overhead Crane Components

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

Crane Bridge

 The cross-bridge of an overhead crane runs longitudinally alongside crane tracks or crane rails which are laid on runway beams over the square operating area. Crane Bridges are manufactured from steel plates or steel beams which are contacted with end carriages or end girders kits to move on the runway.

Hoisting Trolley: wire rope hoist, electric chain hoist, winch

The lifting trolley consists of the lifting mechanism which contains the overhead crane parts and components such as a brake, motor, reducer, drum, and set of pulleys. The motor drives a drum that rotates through the reducer to power the wire rope or chain that lives up and down the load. And also the lifting trolley of an overhead crane can be grouped in the wire rope hoist trolley, electric chain hoist trolley, and processed open winch trolley which is usually used in heavy-duty applications, such as in steel mills for hot ladle handling, etc.

Driving Mechanism: Motor, Reducer, Wheels & Brakes

The driving mechanism of overhead cranes can be grouped into two parts, one is for the long traveling of the overhead crane and the other is for the crossing traveling of the lifting trolley.  Various types of motors, reducers, wheels, and brakes are adopted for different uses and applications.

Power Supply: Conductor Bar, Festoon System & Cable Reel

The power supply is very important for the complete overhead crane system. There are mainly three types of power supply systems by using conductor bars, festoon systems, and cable reels.

The major types of overhead cranes adopt electricity as the driving power and there are all other types of power supply such as pneumatic power and hydraulic power. As for the electric overhead crane, the supply systems have mainly consisted of the following crane parts and components such as festoons cable, conductor bars, or reel cables to deliver power to the crane runway,  bridge crane control, and trolley and hoist.

  • Conductor Bar – A conductor bar system is adopted on the crane‘s runway or monorail. They can be established on crane runways with more than one bridge. The electric power is supplied through a sliding shoe collector system, the safer way of power supplier for overhead cranes.
  • Festoon System – A festoon system can be mounted on a track, I beam, or square rail, which can be grouped into flat or round cables. The festoon system is used for the power supply of the crane trolley which moves along the track and the festoon cable hangs below the track and expands or retracts with the position changing or traveling of the trolley.
  • Cable Reel – Spring-loaded cable reels or motorized cable reels are widely adopted to release, retrieve, and store the conductor cable, for mainline power along a runway or monorail.


Each and every operation or movement of overhead cranes are managed by crane controls. Based on different applications or types of overhead cranes, the overhead crane is operated by different crane controls. Namely, there are three types of crane controls are used, the pendant crane control, the wireless remote control/radio control, or driver’s cabin control, which also can be classed into various types.  

For heavy-duty overhead cranes with 24 hours working time or applications that are not suitable for human operation, the automatic crane control is realized by software programs, which is namely used on automatic cranes.


Crane runways are important crane travelling components and parts.  Based on the crane application conditions and types of overhead cranes, the most suitable crane runways will be selected among the top running runway structure, ceiling-mounted runway, wall-mounted runway, or free-standing runway, etc.

How to select the right crane runway for your crane? The factor that needs to be confirmed is the length of the runway, which determines the speed and movement of the trolley and hoists up and down the runway. For more information, please feel free to contact us. The installation of a crane runway is challenging work depending on the type of supporting structure or mounting support where the bridge crane will be installed.

Overhead Crane Type

Overhead cranes come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and capacities, and choosing the right type of overhead crane is critical to streamlining the production process.

According to the structure, it can be divided into a single girder overhead crane and a double girder overhead crane.

The different hook devices, can be divided into hook overhead cranes, grab overhead cranes, electromagnet overhead cranes, and container overhead cranes.

What is a Heavy Overhead Cranes?

Generally speaking, an overhead crane is a type of material handling equipment that can safely and precisely lift and move extremely heavy loads and objects from one location to another using an overhead crane space or gaps in a manufacturing plant in a precise manner. Location.

Overhead cranes consist of two parallel rails that rest on longitudinal I-beams and are contacted to opposite steel columns by brackets. The hoisting part of the electric hoist, the hoist, travels along the bridge deck.
Due to the nature of the lifting work, overhead cranes are precisely configured and designed to suit the specific form of load application. Overhead cranes come in many sizes, types, shapes, and configurations, with different types of overhead crane components and crane components.

Overhead cranes are used for loading and unloading, handling, lifting molds from forming machines, or feeding raw materials. The two main reasons for installing an overhead crane are efficiency and safety. Overhead cranes operate many times faster than floor-mounted or floor-mounted equipment. In hazardous, hazardous, and harsh conditions, such as the presence of heated metal, and explosive or toxic materials, overhead cranes can move materials safely, increasing your productivity while keeping workers safe.

Commonly used in various manufacturing companies and factories, the following are the applications of overhead cranes:

Frequently Asked Questions

Overhead cranes can lift and move heavy objects from one location to another without taking up floor space by being erected at a high place in the facility through the headspace of the facility. is a machine that lifts, lowers, and moves equipment.

The hoist of the overhead crane is suspended on the bridge beam by a trolley and travels between the runways of the overhead crane system.

Overhead cranes include bridge cranes, gantry cranes, jib cranes, workstation cranes, monorail cranes, top-running cranes, and under-running cranes.

The difference between an overhead crane and a gantry crane is that the overhead crane girder is on the internal frame of the building.
Whereas gantry crane girders are attached to the legs of the gantry so that they can operate without runway beams and columns. Ladders and handrails need to be attached to at least one leg to climb up the gantry.
Overhead cranes are widely used in indoor areas or inside buildings.
Gantry cranes are more widely used in outdoor areas or outside buildings.

Overhead cranes are often called bridge cranes or overhead bridge cranes.
They are also called Electric Overhead Travelling Crane for short. Or EOT Crane for short.
The abbreviation EOT crane is commonly found in military and government bid specs for overhead cranes.
In some places, a simple search, oh crane, is used. The overhead crane is abbreviated as oh crane.

The crane beam is one of the important parts of the crane, and it is a structure used to fix the sliding operation of the hoist. Balance and support loads during overhead lifting.

This is usually not fixed, according to your needs, if you are, it can usually be 0.2 tons to 550 tons, however, if there is a special industry that needs a larger lifting capacity, it can also be customized, the largest overhead crane in the world has a capacity of 20,000 tons.

Crane span is the measured center-to-center distance between runway beams. During the consultation period for the price of overhead cranes, the span is the main measurement data.

This usually does not have a fixed value and needs to be determined according to the capacity of the overhead crane, span, lifting height, environmental factors, etc. However, we have included a table for reference that we hope can help you.
