When it comes to lifting and lowering heavy objects, the best equipment often be overhead crane and gantry crane. But what is the difference between them? And how to choose the right crane for our needs.
• Difference in Design.
The major difference between them is that the girder, whether it’s single or double, does not rest upon runways built into the structure. Overhead cranes, also called bridge cranes, are mounted inside of the building
• Difference in Applications
Mobility is a key factors to them. For one point, overhead cranes are great for warehouse type factories that space is limited. While the gantry crane is more flexible for it’s much easier to disassemble and used outside.
• Differences in Capacity
Generally, overhead crane are typically have higher load capacity with higher classification and lower energy consumption. While gantry crane with same capacity have higher energy consumption.
