What is Gantry Crane?
A Gantry Crane is a type of crane that is supported by one or more legs that run on a rail or set of rails. These cranes are typically used for loading and unloading cargo from ships at ports, or for moving large or heavy loads within a manufacturing or warehouse facility. Gantry cranes can be either fixed or mobile and come in a variety of sizes and lifting capacities. They have a horizontal beam that spans an area or space where the load needs to be moved, and are equipped with a hoist to lift and move the load. They are commonly used in ports, shipyards, heavy manufacturing plants, and other industrial applications.
