Overhead Cranes by Crane-Tec – View photo gallery »

Crane-Tec overhead cranes offer a high standard of quality and a broad array of solutions to meet almost every application. Over the past 30 years we have developed superior standards of quality for building overhead cranes. All of our overhead cranes meet CMAA Specification 74 for overhead cranes. Crane-Tec is a master crane builder utilizing a high-end line of R&M Materials Handling hoists and endtrucks. Additionally we can supply a number of other top of the line manufacturer’s crane components based on the customer’s needs.

We take overhead crane quality seriously and that is why we implement the Crane-Tec Quality Pledge: To supply the highest quality overhead cranes at the lowest reasonable cost. Every crane is double checked for quality before leaving the shop. A third and fourth check is made by our experienced field crew during installation. A final check is made by the project manager, who is present during all crane start-ups.

Unmatched Clearances

The floor area under your new crane can now be used more efficiently. Better hook to wall dimensions (A) compared to the competition.

Lower roof heights / maximum lifting heights

Your new building design can be smaller and more functional giving you savings in initial construction. Better hook to ceiling dimensions (H) compared to the competition.

Lower operating costs

Smaller building dimensions equate to continual savings in heating and/or air conditioning expenses over the lifetime of your building.

Maximum Flexibility

Factory layout and material flow planning is optimized.
