What Are Overhead Cranes?

Overhead cranes (also known as bridge cranes) comprise two or more parallel runways with bridge rails spanning the gap between them. Lifting devices such as hoists are suspended from the bridge rail. They offer many possibilities for handling loads quickly, safely, and efficiently.

The parallel runways allow the bridge rails to move horizontally, lifting and transporting the load along the length of the workplace. Bridge rails provide the same movement but on an opposite axis, allowing horizontal travel across the width of the workplace. Depending on the application, these movements can be done by pushing manually, or electrically powered for precise operation and ultimate control of heavy loads.

Why Are Overhead Cranes Used?

Overhead cranes are useful for several tasks, including moving products through stages of production, transporting heavy loads, or loading and unloading. They are very versatile, and a variety of safe working loads can be provided.

Overhead cranes are a brilliant piece of equipment to have in any warehouse or production facility. They allow workers to move items efficiently and easily, as well as lower heavy products down to the ground, improving safety for anyone using it.

They can also be supplied as part of a full turnkey solution. Overhead cranes can be equipped with a hoist, lifting equipment such as grippers or bespoke manipulator systems. They are adaptable, which makes them a favoured choice for industrial and manufacturing industries.

The Benefits Of Using Overhead Cranes

Overhead cranes increase health and safety in the workplace as they remove the burden of manual handling. They can benefit your workers and business and can help in various ways:

  • Lifting something too heavy for a person to handle manually.
  • Raising an item to a location that is not easily accessible for the person.
  • Reducing the risk of Musculoskeletal injuries and repetitive strain injury through incorrect manual handling.
  • Avoid employee fatigue.
  • Improving the efficiency of the production line.
  • Reducing the risk of workplace accidents and damage to products

 

This material handling equipment offers a customisable manual handling solution, allowing it to be tailored to the task at hand.

Handling Concepts' Overhead Crane Solution

This overhead crane solution can lift loads up to 1000kg, creating a flexible handling solution for the automotive parts it transports. The system covers an area of 25 metres on one axis and 5 metres on a second axis, allowing horizontal travel across the workplace.

An electric hoist provides a foundation for additional lifting accessories and can be manually pushed as part of the trolley.

Using the crane system means that the workplace utilises the overhead space and does not cause space restrictions at ground level.

The overhead crane removes the need for workers to manually lift loads, reducing the risk of workplace injuries. It also increases production line efficiency, as it provides greater horizontal travel than a traditional industrial manipulator.
