Are you planning to establish a warehouse? Well, that’s a good investment that will see you generate a lot of revenue. However, there’re some pieces of equipment that you must have in your warehouse for it to operate smoothly. One of them is the warehouse overhead crane. This is a crane that’s mounted and is used to lift and transfer different kinds of materials and goods within the warehouse. That is, it loads, unloads and horizontally moves items efficiently and safely. This is an indication that it’s among the very important equipment required, and therefore, there’s the need to have the best quality. Our company has years of experience in designing and producing industrial devices, such as overhead crane, gantry crane, marine winch, construction winch, travel lift, steel structure, flat transfer cart, and smart car parking system. We’re able to design your requested overhead crane according to your needs/intended use.
What’s the general use of an overhead crane?
Overhead crane is used for lifting and transporting material in a factory, warehouse or even in a workshop. Warehouse overhead crane is manufactured in various dimensions depending on the size of the warehouse and the type of lifting work. A warehouse can either adopt the single girder crane or the double girder type. Warehouse overhead crane travels on the rail of the building or the supporting structure. Another type of crane that we manufacture is the gantry crane. This is very similar to the overhead crane, has two supporting legs and can be used for indoor/outdoor lifting and transporting work.
Parameters of a Single Girder warehouse overhead crane
- Lifting capacity: 0.5t-20t
- Span length: 7.5m-31.5m
- Lifting height: 6m-18m
- Working class: A3-A4
- Operating Temperature: -20 degrees – 40 degrees
Parameters of Double Girder warehouse overhead crane
- Lifting capacity: 5t-320t
- Span length: 10.5m-31.5m
- Lifting height: 6m-18m
- Working class: A5
- Working temperature: -20 degrees – 40 degrees

Warehouse Crane System
The system consists of three crucial parts: Bridge, lifting mechanism, and control/electric system.
Bridge- used for supporting and moving items in a longitudinal direction and consist of a traveling mechanism and metal structure. The metal structure includes features like the main beam and the end truck while the traveling mechanism consists of a transmission device, brake device, drive device, and wheel groups.
As for the lifting mechanism, some of the devices involved are the electric hoist/crane trolley which is used for lifting and transferring materials in a horizontal direction.
When it comes to the control system, there’re two types, that is, the manual control and the remote control
Benefits of having a warehouse overhead crane
- It has precision controls that allow items to be lifted and placed in their right position.
- The cranes are installed and positioned so high above to avoid floor obstruction when moving and lifting materials
- Its bridge crane works efficiently to reduce the risk of injuries
- Makes operations easier and faster.
Some other types of equipment that work hand in hand with a warehouse overhead crane are:
The marine winch which would be very suitable if your warehouse is located near a water body like a port. It’s mainly used on a boat, shore, a port for anchoring, fixing, mooring or towing winch. Another facility is the construction winch which can be applied in pulling or lifting materials in an industrial site, factory, warehouse, or in a mine. Lastly is the travel lift that is used for lifting the boat from the water, putting the boat into the water, transporting the boat on land, or for maintenance work.
Are you planning to expand your warehouse or some parts of the factory? Choosing the right construction material determines the foundation of your structure. The steel structure is a kind of light material for building factory, warehouse and It makes the building process simple, fast and safe. You may also add a flat transfer cart in your factory to assist in transporting steel plate or other material. Additionally, Having a Smart car parking system would save much land area and parking time.
