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

A gantry 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. For example 380V/3phase/50Hz.

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.
