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.

 

Case Study

The Challenge:

  • To provide our customer, a leading forklift manufacturer, with a complete under running 12 ton overhead crane system. The job incorporated the 12 ton runway system and four under running overhead cranes.

Special Considerations:

  • The customer 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 customers metal building.

Our Team Approach:

  • Our engineers, armed with building drawings, determined runway steel and hanger design. Engineered drawings with loads were submitted for approval. Crane-Tec’s experienced field crew installed the complete system and overhead cranes in under 4 days, allowing the customer to use the equipment in the installation of new machinery.

The Challenge:

To provide our customer, a major automotive parts manufacturer, with a freestanding runway system for a new facility in Ohio. The job incorporated (7) seven 15 ton double girder overhead cranes complete with freestanding runway systems.

Special Consideration:

The general contractor needed design build capabilities for the foundations and runway systems. Double girder overhead cranes with low headroom hoists were utilized to minimize crane and building steel costs.  Crane-Tec engineers armed with metal building drawings designed a cost efficient and space saving runway system.  All cranes were installed with hoist monitoring systems which facilitate scheduled maintenance and allow for problems to be detected before turning into costly breakdowns.

Results:

The general contractor maximized the strength of the building by utilizing tie-back columns along exterior walls; Crane-Tec supplied a complete crane system and the owner maximized floor space.  The overhead cranes were weight tested and turned over to the customer ahead of schedule.

The Challenge:

To provide our customer, a carpenters training facility, with a freestanding runway system for a new facility in Indiana. The job incorporated (1) Ten ton top running single girder  overhead crane and complete freestanding runway systems.

Special Consideration:

The general contractor needed design build capabilities for runway systems. Single girder overhead cranes with low headroom hoists were utilized to minimize crane and foundation costs.  Crane-Tec engineers armed with building and foundation drawings designed a cost efficient and space saving runway system.

Results:

The general contractor maximized the space inside of the building.  Crane-Tec supplied a complete overhead crane system and the owner maximized floor space.  The cranes were completed and turned over to the customer ahead of schedule.
