Top Running Crane Sets for Overhead Travelling Cranes

Overhead Cranes with an Optimized Design

Overhead Cranes with an Optimized Design

Single-girder and double-girder overhead travelling cranes offer maximum stability with optimized dead weight. This minimizes the load on the crane runway – and enables a crane to be set up in a cost-effective design. With Demag crane components and pre-configured crane sets, our crane construction partners manufacture cranes that are tailored precisely to your requirements. We also offer a wide range of hoists, chain hoists to 80t wire rope hoists, from the basic variant to the smart high-end solution with intelligent assistance functions. In addition, overhead travelling cranes have excellent crane geometry that ensures excellent travel characteristics, and enables precise adaptation to the contours of the envelope for all-round greater efficiency and ease of use.

What else distinguishes overhead travelling cranes?

  • Crane girder made of torsionally rigid box-type girder section or sturdy profile-section girder according to DIN standard for optimal load distribution
  • Crane gantries in torsionally stiff design for top or side connection
  • Hoists with a wide range of configuration options:
    • DVR rope hoist up to 80 t
    • DC chain hoist with up to 5 t
  • Minimized sway with load movement thanks to stepless cross-travel

Product information

The benefits at a glance

High stability and system strength

  • Torsionally rigid trolleys optimized for overhead crane applications, optionally with top or side connection
    • up to wheel size Ø 250 in profile version
    • from wheel size Ø 320 as welded box-section girder with bulkhead plates
  • Flange travel wheels designed according to EN1563 GJS 700-2
  • Optimal travel characteristics with minimal wear on the crane runway and wheels

Extremely cost-effective

  • Rope hoists with extensive equipment options (e.g. electrical system, assistance functions)

Equipment options

With a wide range of equipment options, we adapt our hall or overhead cranes to your individual requirements:

  • Control via wired switch
  • Control via bi-directional radio control
  • Frequency-controlled drives help prevent sway
  • Crane gantries with horizontal guide rollers reduce the skewing forces applied on the crane runway
  • Operating limit switch or optional slack rope control protects hoist and load from damage
  • Intelligent assistance functions for safer and more efficient operation
  • Bypass control prevents collisions with obstacles in the travel range of the travelling hoist
  • Anti-collision and crane spacing devices enable safe operation of several cranes on one runway
  • Crane equipment with two travelling hoists helps with long and bulky loads
  • Extensive range of lifting devices for a wide range of requirements
