AHMEDABAD, India - Jan. 19, 2021 - PRLog -- Double Girder Cranes

Double Girder Crane is one of the types of EOT Crane. Also known as double beam cranes or double bridge cranes, they are essential for the production process, mainly in the transportation industry for lifting goods.  Double girder EOT crane manufacturers have designed the cranes widely used in all the indoor and outdoor industrial companies, steel industry, logistics, chemical industry, etc. You can notice that the double girder crane's shape is like a parallel bridge supported with parallel tracks on both ends.

Parts of Double Girder cranes
Double girder cranes consist of three parts, electrical, mechanical, and metal structure.

Electrical structure: These parts are comprised of electrical wiring and equipment.

Mechanical structure: This structure is divided into three different mechanisms, lifting, trolley running, and bridge travel mechanism. The lifting structure helps lift the loads vertically, the trolley mechanism is for lateral movement, and the bridge travel mechanism allows for the longitudinal direction of lifting loads. This helps in loading and unloading the goods in three-dimensional space.

Metal Parts: This structure consists of a trolley frame and bridge.

Safety Measures to consider while using double girder crane

To pull out double girder cranes' safety measures, the crane manufacturers in India have provided some routine inspections to be followed during the cranes' operation.
  • All the regions where the crane can reach people needs to be regularly maintained with safe distance, and movable objects should be not less than 0.5m away. If people cannot reach and no passageway, then keep space up to 0.1m. One should carry out protection measures if the distance is not maintained.
  • The main components of the crane have specific safety requirements in terms of size. The opening increases should be 15%, torsional deformation should be less than 10%, bushing wear should be less than 50%, and plate hook spindle wear should be less than 5%. There should no defects on the hook and pulley.
  • Ensure the performance of lifting height limiter and travel limit switch is safe and reliable.
  • There should not be any extrusion, deformation, burning, etc. The connection with the clips and wedge to fix the wire rope is in good condition. Balance wheels set should meet the requirements and in good condition.

One should do a thorough routine check of double girder crane as it plays a significant role in preventing accidents at the sites. Ambica Engineering is also known as a single girder EOT crane manufacturer that provides quality equipment at low maintenance cost.
