Crane systems (Overhead Crane), also known as overhead hoists, are essential lifting equipment with two main movements (horizontal and vertical above the workshop) to ensure lifting, moving, and transporting loads within the working space of the crane system in the workshop. It consists of a bridge crane moving along rails mounted on both sides of the working space, with a hoist moving vertically along the bridge. The hoist is used to lift, move, and transport heavy loads, making them a vital tool for various manufacturing and construction activities.

Crane systems are essential equipment in industrial projects

Electric overhead cranes were first produced and applied in 1910 in Germany, and they have been continuously used to this day due to their convenience and cost-effectiveness in lifting and handling heavy and bulky loads (such as iron, steel, concrete, etc.). The lifting capacity of overhead cranes is also substantial, ranging from 1 ton to 500 tons, primarily operated by electric motors. As a result, overhead cranes find wide applications in the industrial sector in general.

Crane systems with various sizes and load capacities are widely used due to the numerous benefits they provide

The benefits of using crane systems include:

  1. Increased efficiency and productivity
  2. Enhanced safety
  3. Reduced risk of injuries for workers
  4. Improved material handling

Factors to consider when purchasing crane systems for businesses:

  1. Load capacity
  2. Lifting height
  3. Span length
  4. Speed
  5. Duty cycle
  6. Environment
  7. Control options

Different types of crane systems include single-girder and double-girder overhead cranes, gantry cranes, and jib cranes, with both freestanding and wall-mounted options.
