Overhead Crane Case Study

The Challenge:

  • To provide our customer, a leading trucking accessories supplier, with a complete design build of an under running 5 ton overhead crane system. The job incorporated the 5 ton overhead crane system and (2) ½ ton jib cranes.

Special Considerations:

  • The general contractor needed design build capabilities for the overhead crane and runway system. Crane-Tec provided complete design of the under hung runway system and incorporated it into the general contractors special overhead crane truss system.

Our Team Approach:

  • Our engineers, armed with building drawings, determined runway steel and hanger design. Engineered drawings with overhead crane loads were submitted to the general contractor for approval. Crane-Tec’s experienced field crew installed the complete system and jib cranes in under 3 days to meet the G.C.’s demanding schedule.

Results: 

  • The general contractor maximized the strength of the building while Crane-Tec supplied a turn key overhead crane system and the owner maximized floor space. The overhead cranes were ahead of schedule allowing the owner to set up manufacturing machinery with the use of the overhead crane.
