FEM/DIN Single Girder Overhead Crane

The most outstanding feature of FEM/DIN single girder overhead cranes are that the drive mechanism adopts a three-in-one reducer (hardened gear reducer, inverter brake motor), so the structure is also more compact. It is precisely because of this special design that the blind spot range of the overhead crane is smaller in the front and back, so that it can utilize the production area to a greater extent. The brake pads inside the three-in-one gear motor are maintenance-free for life, which can save the maintenance cost in the later stage.

Offset Trolley Single Girder Overhead Crane

Offset trolley single girder overhead cranes are girder cranes with angular trolley structure. It has better height space utilization compared with single girder electric overhead travelling cranes. The structure of the product is often used in the case that the position of the overhead crane in the plant is low, but the headroom height between the top surface of the track and the lowest point of the plant is large. This structure can better utilize the height space inside the workshop and can effectively raise the hoist lifting height.

FAQs

What is top running and under running cranes?

Top running cranes and underhung cranes are two types of overhead cranes that are distinguished by the way move along their runway systems.

Top Running Cranes

Type: Single girder electric overhead travelling cranes / Low headroom single girder overhead cranes/ FEM single girder overhead cranes / Offset single girder overhead cranes / Manual Single Girder Overhead Cranes(top running ytpe) / most type of double girder overhead cranes

Applications: Top running cranes are commonly used in industrial settings, manufacturing facilities, and warehouses where heavy loads need to be lifted and transported across a large area. Compared to underhung cranes, top-running cranes are typically larger and a better choice for higher capacity lifting applications, such as those involving 10 tons or more.

Advantages:

  • Can handle heavier loads.
  • Suitable for longer spans.
  • Generally more stable.
  • Easier installation and wide availability of parts.
Under Running Cranes

Type: Underslung single girder overhead cranes / Underslung double girder overhead cranes / Manual Single Girder Overhead Crane(under running type)

Applications: Underhung cranes used in factory buildings without load-bearing columns, but the roof can be load-bearing.

Advantages:

  •  Ideal for facilities with limited headroom.
  • Can be more cost-effective in certain situations.

In summary, the main difference between top running and underhung cranes lies in how they are supported and move along their runways. Top running cranes run on the top of the runway beams, while underhung cranes run underneath the runway beams. The choice between these two types of cranes depends on factors such as the available space, load capacity requirements, and the specific needs of the application.

What do I need to consider when choosing a single girder overhead crane solution?

You need to determine from which angle your plan favors more consideration:

  • You want to save more money
  • Maximize space utilization
  • To maximize space utilization and minimize maintenance.

You may focus on one or more of these aspects, but the most important thing is to customize a solution that is more suitable for you in terms of the actual situation of your plant. DGCRANE has a lot of experience in customizing single girder overhead travelling cranes, such as this example, where we have helped our customer to customize a single girder overhead travelling crane solution that fully meets their needs, and has received a very positive feedback.
