Monorail Cranes System

monorail cranes have a distinct appearance among all overhead cranes. Their hoisting does not move side to side like a standard bridge crane. Instead, it moves up and down. The track that monorail cranes operate on may be modified to fit bends.

Monorail 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 monorail 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Monorail 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 monorail crane is suspended on the bridge beam by a trolley and travels between the runways of the monorail crane system.

monorail cranes can be installed in different ways, freestanding monorail cranes and ceiling-mounted monorail cranes.

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 5 tons.
