What is an Overhead Crane?
An overhead crane, commonly referred to as a bridge crane, consists of parallel runways with a traveling bridge spanning the gap. It is mainly found in industrial environments and is typically used for manufacturing or maintenance applications, where efficiency and downtime are critical factors.
- A hoist is the lifting component of an overhead crane which travels along the crane bridge.
- A gantry crane is a bridge that is supported on two or more legs running on a fixed rail at ground level.
