20 ton Freestanding Overhead Crane System
20 ton Freestanding Overhead Crane System & 2 ton Freestanding Overhead Crane System
Crane-Tec was recently contracted to supply multiple overhead cranes and runway systems to a leading fabrication and engineering firm in Indiana. The customer had purchased a spec building that wasn’t designed for overhead cranes and came to Crane-Tec for their overhead crane solution. Crane-Tec worked with the customer and the General Contractor to designed a 20 ton free-standing runway system to accommodate (2) 10 ton 70+ foot span single box girder overhead cranes and multiple 2 ton jib cranes.
Crane-Tec worked closely with the customers General Contractor and assisted in the design of the necessary crane footers. Crane-Tec engineers design and completely independent freestanding 20 ton overhead crane system that is capable of supporting 2 ton jib cranes. Crane-Tec also designed and installed a 2 ton freestanding workstation crane that utilized 4 ton center bay columns so the owner can easily add a 2nd 2 ton system in the future.
All the crane and structural steel were installed successfully and on-time. Electronic eyes were installed on the 10 ton cranes to keep them from touching and bridge travel limit switched were instated on the runway to reduce impact of cranes into the end-stops.
The customer’s facility is now up and running and the cranes have become an iatrical part of their fabrication process.
