Intermodal Gantry Crane Custom Design

We have a team of professional engineers dedicated to providing tailored solutions for your intermodal terminals. Designing the right intermodal gantry crane involves careful consideration of specific parameters. To ensure the crane is uniquely designed to meet your needs, you need to provide essential information, including:

  • Load Capacity: It involves understanding the weight of the heaviest containers the crane will handle regularly.
  • Span of the Crane: Calculating the span carefully ensures the crane efficiently reaches all necessary positions without compromising stability, considering the layout of the working site.
  • MaximumLifting Height: This parameter considers the height of container stacks and potential obstacles on the working site, ensuring the container gantry crane meets vertical operational demands.
  • Container Type and Quantity: Understanding the type and quantity of containers to be lifted helps tailor the crane’s handling capabilities. Whether it’s 20-foot or 40-foot containers, this information assists in optimizing the crane’s design to match the specific needs of the operation.
  • Containers Handled Per Hour: Providing information on expected throughput enables our engineers to optimize intermodal gantry crane design for maximum productivity, considering factors like hoisting and movement speed.
  • Working Site Characteristics: The working site environment plays a vital role in custom design. Factors such as ground conditions, wind loads, and environmental considerations must be factored in to ensure the crane’s stability and longevity in various operational conditions.

The Versatility of Intermodal Gantry Cranes in Logistics

Intermodal gantry cranes play a crucial role in various industries, particularly in transportation and logistics. These cranes are designed to handle containers and cargo in intermodal terminals, where different modes of transportation, such as ships, trains, and trucks, converge. Here are some key applications of intermodal gantry cranes:

  • Container Handling in Ports: One of the primary applications of intermodal gantry cranes is in ports for handling shipping containers, facilitating the efficient transfer of cargo between vessels and the port.
  • Railway Intermodal Terminals: Intermodal container cranes are utilized in railway intermodal terminals to transfer containers between trains and other modes of transportation. They play a vital role in the integration of rail transport with other modes, such as trucks and ships.
  • Truck Intermodal Terminals: At truck intermodal terminals, gantry cranes are used to lift and move containers between trucks and other transportation modes. This helps in optimizing the transfer of cargo from road transport to ships or trains.
  • Distribution Centers: Intermodal gantry cranes can be employed in large distribution centers to manage the efficient movement of containers. They play a crucial role in streamlining the logistics process, ensuring quick and accurate transfers between different transportation modes.
  • Container Yards: Gantry cranes are often used in container yards where containers are stored temporarily. These RMG cranes help in organizing and stacking containers efficiently, making it easier to locate and retrieve them when needed.
  • Cargo Handling at Inland Ports: Inland ports, located away from traditional coastal ports, often use intermodal container gantry cranes to handle containers and cargo. These cranes facilitate the transfer of goods between different modes of transportation, supporting intermodal logistics.

How Does An Intermodal Gantry Crane Work?

Take a look at how intermodal gantry cranes work and their pivotal role in facilitating the smooth transfer of containers between different transportation modes.

Key Components of Intermodal Gantry Cranes

  • Gantry Structure: The gantry structure consists of horizontal girders supported by vertical legs that run along tracks. This design allows the crane to traverse the length of the facility, covering various loading and unloading points.
  • Spreaders: Intermodal gantry cranes are equipped with specialized spreaders, which are devices attached to the crane’s hoist cables. These spreaders securely grasp and lift containers, ensuring a stable and controlled transfer between different modes of transportation.
  • Hoisting System: The hoisting system is responsible for raising and lowering the spreader with precision. It is a crucial component that enables efficient loading and unloading of containers onto and from ships, trucks, and trains.
  • Trolley System: The trolley system facilitates horizontal movement along the gantry structure. This system enables the crane to position the spreader accurately over the desired container, optimizing the loading and unloading process.
  • Power Supply: Intermodal gantry cranes are typically powered by electricity. The power supply can be provided through a variety of means, such as cable reels, busbars, or conductor rails. This ensures a continuous and reliable source of power for the crane’s operations.

Operating Sequence of Container Handling

The operation of an intermodal gantry crane involves a systematic sequence of movements to efficiently handle containers:

  • Approaching the Container: The gantry crane moves along its designated tracks to the location of the container to be handled.
  • Positioning the Spreaders: The trolley system and hoisting system work in tandem to position the spreader precisely over the container.
  • Lifting the Container: The hoisting system raises the spreader, securely lifting the container from its current location.
  • Horizontal Movement: The trolley system moves the container horizontally, positioning it over the intended mode of transportation (ship, truck, or train).
  • Lowering and Release: The hoisting system carefully lowers the container into place. Once securely positioned, the spreader releases the container, completing the transfer process.

Integration with Other Container Handling Equipment

Our intermodal gantry cranes are often integrated into the overall terminal infrastructure, working in conjunction with other equipment such as reach stackers to ensure a smooth flow of containers within the terminal.

Reach Stackers For Container Terminals

Reach stackers play a crucial role in efficiently stacking and retrieving containers in a vertical arrangement. Their telescopic boom allows for precise handling of containers, enabling operators to reach containers even in tight or stacked configurations. The collaborative use of container reach stackers and intermodal container gantry cranes enhances the overall efficiency of container handling operations, particularly when dealing with containers of varying sizes.
