Top Running Crane Sets for Overhead Traveling Cranes

Overhead Traveling Cranes with an Optimized Design

Single-girder and double-girder overhead traveling 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 preconfigured crane sets, our crane construction partners manufacture cranes that are tailored precisely to your requirements.

We also offer a wide range of hoists, from chain hoists to 80t wire rope hoists, with the basic variant to the smart high-end solution with intelligent assistance functions. In addition, overhead traveling cranes have excellent crane geometry that ensures excellent travel characteristics and enables precise adaptation to the contours of the envelope for greater efficiency and ease of use.

What else distinguishes overhead traveling 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

FAQs on Crane Sets for Overhead Traveling Cranes

What are the key components of a an overhead traveling crane set?

There are many components that make up an overhead traveling crane set. While it can depend on the application, the typical components include the bridge (main girder), end trucks, hoist, trolley, runway beans, and electrical controls. However, some additional components include festoon systems and safety devices.

What types of traveling cranes are available in crane sets?

Crane sets can be tailor-made for various types of overhead traveling cranes including single/double girder cranes, gantry cranes, and other types of cranes. Before determining the crane and set needed, it is important to consider the specific application and load requirements.

How do I choose the right crane set for my application?

A crane manufacturer or specialist can help determine the crane set that is most suitable for a project. Some of the factors to consider include lifting capacity, span length, lifting heigh, duty cycle, and the material type being handled.

What safety features are included in overhead traveling cranes?

Safety features are an integral part of the design and engineering process of crane sets for traveling cranes. Common safety features include overload protection, emergency stop buttons, limit switches, anti-collision devices, warning alarms, and more. These features ensure safe and smooth crane operation and enhance the safety of both the equipment and the employees operating it.

How often should I perform maintenance on a crane set?

Typically, a preventive maintenance schedule is established to ensure the proper functionality of your overhead traveling crane set. Depending on the application, maintenance may be required more frequently, with factors such as usage, environmental conditions, and manufacturer recommendations playing a role. Be sure to consult with the manufacturer for specific care and maintenance requirements.

What are the power requirement for crane sets for traveling cranes?

Crane sets for traveling cranes are powerful pieces of machinery and require sufficient electrical power. Specifically, the power is crucial for the operations of the hoist, trolley, and other components. The power requirements will depend on the applicable crane specifications.
