Providing Solutions for Plastic Products Industry

Crane-Tec worked our magic again when a large international manufacturing company asked us to build and install a 15-ton top running double girder crane that will operate on an existing 10-ton capacity runway system.  Here’s what we came up with:

Special Considerations:

  • The existing runway system is designed for 10 ton.
  • The lifting height of the new 15-ton crane can be no less than the existing 10 ton crane.

Solution:

Crane-Tec’s team collected information on the existing 10-ton crane and runway system and our engineer offered two solutions:

  • A 15-ton top running double girdle crane with a low headroom trolley hoist and a 15’-0” end truck wheelbase. The wheelbase was calculated to not overload the existing 10-ton runway system.
  • A 15-ton top running double girder crane with a low headroom trolley hoist. The trolley hoist has load limiters and travel limiters to restrict the 15-ton load to the center one-third of the crane span. The rail-side one-thirds are limited to 10 ton.

Results:

The customer selected solution #1.

Crane-Tec furnished, installed, and tested the new 15-ton top running double girder crane with low headroom trolley hoist and a special 15’-0” wheel base on time.

 

Precision Needed For Railroad Engines

Crane-Tec was called upon to do a project for a Railroad Engine Maintenance Facility.  Our team of experts were asked to engineer, build and install a free-standing, 20-ton crane system in an existing facility.  This new setup would be used to service railroad engines.

 

Special Considerations:

  1. The customer’s application required precise movement and positioning
  2. Adding a freestanding runway system into an older, existing building.

 

Solution:

Working with the customer and general contractor requirements, Crane-Tec engineers designed a freestanding, 20-ton crane system.  We recommended variable speed control for the bridge, trolley and hoist.  We also added a true vertical lift hoist.

Result:

Crane-Tec engineered, built, installed, and tested the complete 20-ton top running double girder, heavy duty, radio remote controlled crane and free standing runway system.
