Customization Solution Design
Aicrane’s project consultant and engineers collaborated closely with the company to discern their specific requisites. Following meticulous evaluation, our crane engineers proposed an AQ-HD single girder overhead crane with the lifting capacity of 20 tons and a maximum lifting height of 6 meters. Engineered to span the entire workshop length, it featured a European standard wire rope electric hoist for seamless horizontal load movement, complemented by a three-in-one variable frequency motor to ensure smooth crane operation.
Safety was paramount for Aicrane and our customers, and the crane was outfitted with a suite of protective measures which encompass an overload protection system, emergency stop buttons, and more, assuring secure lifting operations.
The manufacturing of the 20 ton overhead crane was executed by Aicrane’s adept production team, employing top-notch materials for superior durability. The primary girder was crafted from Q235B high-quality carbon structural steel, adhering to the European FEM standard for box girder structural design. Precision welding was ensured through the use of a dual-gun gantry welding machine, guaranteeing minimal welding deformations and optimal girder alignment.
Employing a large floor boring machine, the end beam underwent a comprehensive single-pass machining process, safeguarding dimensional accuracy and fit tolerance. The wire rope electric hoist adhered to FEM design standards, incorporating frequency conversion speed regulation to mitigate impact and enable precise positioning.
Delivery and Installation
The logistics were meticulously managed by Aicrane’s shipping and documentation team, responsible for container booking and verification of customs clearance documents. This ensured timely delivery to the customer’s designated port.
A skilled team of engineers and technicians engaged by the client undertook the crane’s installation and commissioning, with Aicrane’s installation engineers providing real-time guidance online to ascertain compliance with requisite safety and performance benchmarks.
Operation of the Overhead Crane
After the meticulous installation under guidance of Aicrane’s expert team, the specialized 20-ton overhead crane stood tall in the workshop of the Costa Rican manufacturing company. With precision and grace, it effortlessly hoisted heavy loads, seamlessly integrating into the daily operations of the workshop. The smooth and reliable performance of the crane elicited satisfaction from the company’s staff.
In summary, the 20-ton overhead crane project for the workshop in Costa Rican stands as an example of proficiency of Aicrane in tailoring solutions to meet unique operational demands, all while upholding rigorous quality and safety standards throughout the process.
