            Single girder overhead cranes are light small lifting overhead cranes or bridge cranes with two-side connection/both ends in the cement column or metal  bracket shaped like a bridge, which suspended from the workshop, warehouse etc and  travel under I-section or H-section steel beams. The bridge is laid along the track on both sides of the viaduct, so that they can make full use of the space under the bridge to lift the material without the hindrance of the ground equipment. Single girder overhead cranes consist of main bridge girder (single), end truck, electric hoist and electric system to help move heavy loads for 3 directions: Up-Down, Left-Right, Forward-Backward. Single  girder overhead cranes are designed to assist with a wide range of lifting tasks and moving operations which will contribute to your daily  productivity and overall success and proved to be a powerful and reliable solution for assorted industries while serving multiple applications in a diverse set of environments. They are the most popular, pragmatic and cost efficient lifting cranes (light duty track traveling crane).

           The main role of single girder overhead cranes is timely and safely complete the object  displacement by intermittent and cycle work, with electric trolley or other  means of lift devices such as grab or electromagnet. They are important tools and equipments for  material handling to achieve mechanization and automation. They also have the functions of reducingthe burden on workers during modern industrial production process, improving labor productivity and efficiency, saving the cost of the workshop. Besides, they have become indispensable lifting  production to a certain extent and suit the tailor-made requirements of customers.

           Using high-quality components can reduce failure rate and maintenance costs. The system benefits from a travelling motor gear box ensuring that the motor starts quietly and smoothly whilst offering 1 or 2  travelling speeds and variable travelling speeds. Latching devices allow direct transfer of the  hoist trolley between the crane and a suspension monorail, flexible connections  between the crane girder and end carriages enable single-girder cranes to operate on tracts that are not parallel. There are also top running end-carriages that  feature direct drive wheels, rubber buffers and the end carriages are fastened  with a plate bolted onto the girder. Lifting mechanism,  trolley and crane can be controlled independently and work synchronously or individually. Various parameters tested to ensure strong construction, smooth operation and high load bearing capacity. Besides, safe slide wire/cable provides high conductivity and small voltage drop power, current collector slide speed is swift.

           Our single girder overhead cranes also come standard with travel  limit switches,  they feature maximum rigidity and minimum deadweight. This maximizes crane  runway loading and enables a more cost-effective building design and overall  system solution. And environment which requires  special used crane instead. Ramhoist crane packages are pre-engineered,  complete crane component packages utilizing cutting edge  technology. Plug-in cabling and bolted structural connections simplify assembly. What’s more, there are normal headroom (general type, also called LD type) and low headroom (European type) for both Top Running Single  Girder Cranes and Under Running Single Girder Cranes.

           Due to their various main girder connection variant, the single girder overhead cranes are applicable to transfer, assembly, check and repair as well as load and unload various materials in the various indoor and outdoor environment such as factory, plant, warehouse, stockyard, mine, machinery manufacturing, concrete industry, assembly repair, production workshop, garage, metallurgical steelmaking field, petroleum, petrochemicals, ship building, electric power, paper making, railway  transportation construction field, civil aviation, port/harbor and logistics  turnover etc, especially for the applications that require precise positioning of the material handing, large parts and precision assembly, even in buildings  with low ceilings. However, this type of single girder overhead cranes are banned to be used in some dangerous environment, such as, combustible/  flammable, explosive, or corrosive gas

Detailed Description

1. Bridge Girder | Main Girder
           Horizontal beam of the crane bridge for hoist traversing is linked and supported by the end trucks.The frame of crane beam is either no-weld U-shape for general type (normal headroom) with one stop molding rolled beams and channels, or square box frame for europen type (low headroom) with rolled section (enclosed computer-optimised box-section), torsion resistant welded diaphragm plate for reinforced connection and have non-destructive test. Both are simplified open kind design and with tight, robust, solid, rational and high strength/rigidity structure by Q235 or Q345  steel plate (similar with foreign steel plate Fe3 or Fe52)  and with advanced technology, outstanding design, auto production, best grade and premium material which pass shot blasting ensures high efficiency and low  noise operations. Low deadweight reduces investment layout, it has smaller body  to get more lifting space and optimal/best use of the room under the bridge.
         European type is different structure and main girder is box type. The advantages are reducing itself height, to some extent increasing the crane lifting height, while general type means the main girder is normal U-shape.

4.European type overhead crane VS General type overhead crane
           European type equipped with low headroom hoist/trolley and more advanced on structure design. Compared with general type overhead crane, the limiting distance is minimum from hook to wall, and headroom is the lowest and minimum, which makes cranes work more close to the front. The net height is lowest, can maximum the lift height and highest possible hook position can be achieved, which increases effective working space of workplace. European single girder overhead crane is compact lifting machinery designed and manufacturing in the strict according  with FEM, DIN and ICE standard. Compared with general overhead crane (bridge crane), the weight is reduced by about 15-30% of common crane, max wheel pressure is reduced by about 10-30%. Lifting height is reduced by about 20%-25%, and hook limit is smaller so the working space is bigger.
           Optimum utilisation of the available height  and space thanks to compact travelling hoist design and large hook path, thus reduce construction and operating costs. The crane is very expedient equipment  for material handling in little production divisions and where there headroom is very low.

5.Low-energy & free-maintenance
           With German motor, the total power can be  20% lower than normal crane, save energy. Composite transmission mechanism has less mid device, the efficiency can be higher. Frequency control speed, the can  be low-high speed 1:10, which will improve the working efficiency with more than 20%. Free maintenance and easy maintenance design will reduce the maintenance cost for you. Components which are imported from abroad, the break down rate is very low and will reduce your cost when using the crane.

           Safety monitor, which is called the crane black box, it will record every operating.
           Electrical anti-swaying system, which can help the crane working with precise position control.
