Crane weight and lifting by the mast to withstand, and it spreads to the ground track. The portal crane is named after this gantry base.

What are the specific differences between gantry crane and mobile gantry crane?

Gantry crane generally consists of four parts: the main beam leg car electric control part, design and installation in alliance with national standards, recommended standard design, calculation of strength, stiffness, stability and so on. Installation of each mobile gantry crane due to different venues, the environment, a variety of different conditions and restrictions, in theory, have a set of installation programs, but the small span, small lifting weight gantry installation, specializing in the installation of workers experience is very rich, they know how to install.

Gantry crane installation:

  • Laying a cart rail (usually by the demand side ), but before installing the mobile gantry crane must be re-testing of the track, gauge error cannot exceed 10 mm;
  • Crane cart installation, to ensure the carts on both sides of the parallelism, verticality, you can pull line, pull the diagonal, all antonyms and other means to carry out correction;
  • Lifting the splicing good legs, connecting it with the cart, and the wind cable tension, the general one leg 4 cables, after loosening the hook (cable fixed legs will not dump down.
  • Lifting spliced good girders (girders have a piece or two, user requirements to be set) on both sides at the same time, on the erected legs.

Recommended Working Conditions for Gantry Cranes

  • Gantry crane is mainly used in the highway: Beam yard hanging template, crane beam, frame beam
  • Railway: Beam Farm hanging template, crane beam, frame beam
  • Shipyard: Hanging welded plate
  • Also used in cargo handling and other occasions

How does the gantry crane make energy-saving emission reduction?

Gantry crane is the abbreviation of the portal crane, and energy-saving emission reduction is mainly in the crane selection and manufacturing phase, the selection of energy-saving effect of four-bar linkage gantry crane, motor selection of energy-saving motors and low resistance bearings, installation of high-efficiency frequency control system. In the operation can try to make the grab full, hook locks according to the choice of goods weight hanging crane lock. As far as possible in the production organization based on a single piece of groceries size and weight to arrange the appropriate berth and door machine operations.

What problems should pay attention to about the gantry crane lubrication?

Lubrication did in order to ensure the normal operation of various parts of the crane and can extend the service life of gantry crane, at the same time, lubrication will affect the production efficiency and so on. Gantry crane lubrication is a very important part of the crane’s routine maintenance. Gantry crane lubrication is very important.
The material of lubrication must be clean, and lubricants of different brands cannot be mixed. In addition, the choice of lubricants above should be appropriate, according to the rules of regular lubrication. Always check the gland seal lubrication system.

In lubrication, to keep the power outage, so as to avoid accidents, of course, except for the lubrication of electric systems. Gantry crane lubrication, for moderately higher lubrication points, should increase the number of lubrication and installation of insulation or cooling device. Try to grease to the friction surface.
It also needs to pay attention to the sodium-based grease absorbent easy to failure, therefore, should not use this lubricant in wet areas.

Gantry crane application safety regulations

In order to avoid unnecessary losses, the crane operator needs to pay special attention to safety issues when using lifting equipment
Such as double-girder cranes, gantry cranes, hanging cranes, etc. These are the lifting equipment. For reasons of ambient safety, basic safety precautions should always be followed during installation and maintenance to prevent the risk of fire, electric shock, and personal injury. Including the following aspects:

  • Never install the device in an unknown liquid pipe to prevent accidental production.
  •  Never install the power cord during a lightning storm.
  •  Do not immerse the power supply in the water.
  • In any case, all matters related to product installation, modification, and maintenance, the power must be cut off before the completion of all work in order to power back.

In circumventing the relevant safety issues outside the environment. Lifting equipment installation precautions also do the following analysis:

  •  before the test should be checked in the case of cutting off all the power.
  •  brake operating mechanism, the adjustment should not be too loose or too tight, in order to prevent the car phenomenon and the impact of the phenomenon is appropriate.
  • Track alignment not only to track the vertical direction of the bend but also the school lateral bending because the lateral is not straight, the wheel will be stuck in the process of crane operation, so the lateral bending is the focus of alignment.
  •  Platen can be used on the 3rd ordinary carbon steel, welded according to the requirements of processing.
  • The joint position of two parallel rails should be staggered, and its offset distance should not be equal to the base distance of the front and rear wheels of the crane.

    Marine gantry crane

The quantity of various construction projects is constantly increasing and the intensity is constantly increasing. More and larger hoisting machines are being used in the construction of highways, railways, and bridges, among which gantry cranes, Erecting machines and gantry cranes and other forms of mechanical equipment more widely used. Gantry crane is essentially a type of bridge crane deformation, mainly for outdoor freight yard, yard cargo, bulk cargo handling operations. For road lifting equipment, gantry crane is a gantry crane, its structure has some differences, but the main application is very similar. In the process of shipbuilding, we also use gantry cranes for loading and unloading of various cargoes. 

Gantry cranes are widely used in ports, a wharf for material lifting. It can also be used in shipment constructions and mega-hydro electronic projects, etc. Some this kind of crane can be equipped with low-level sewing with carrier-beam.The gantry crane for shipbuilding is mainly used for the assembling of the hull of the slipway. There are always two lifting trolleys: one has two main hooks, running on the track of the upper flange of the bridge; the other having the main hook and an auxiliary hook running on the track of the lower flange of the bridge in order to flip and hoist the large hull sections. Lifting capacity is generally 100 to 1,500 tons; the span of 185 meters; lifting speed of 2 to 15 m / min, and 0.1 to 0.5 m / min of the micro-speed.

One is the spring buffer. The structure of the spring damper is very simple, a total of three parts, namely,  spring and shell. The principle of its main work is to prevent the accident from occurring when the crane hits the spring damper and converts the energy into the compression energy of the spring. The last is a hydraulic shock absorber. The working principle of this buffer is that when a crane collision occurs, the hydraulic buffer can make the various parts of the crane go through a process in order to play a buffering role.
