Precast Cranes and Hydraulic Transporter for Precast Yard

Aicrane provides three kinds of precast cranes. Overhead cranes are utilized for lifting and transporting heavy loads within the facility, offering high lifting capacities and precise positioning. Gantry cranes provide similar capabilities but operate on rails or tires, enabling them to cover larger areas. Straddle carrier cranes are ideal for transporting precast components horizontally across the yard, offering flexibility and speed. Hydraulic transporters are employed for moving exceptionally heavy or oversized elements with ease, utilizing hydraulic power for smooth and controlled transportation.

Gantry Crane

Gantry cranes facilitate the lifting and movement of heavy precast concrete components with precision and efficiency. There are several types of gantry cranes commonly used in precast yards, including regular model gantry cranes, rubber tyred gantry cranes, and heavy duty gantry cranes.

Regular Model Gantry Crane

Regular model gantry cranes are versatile lifting solutions commonly used in precast yards. Aicrane provides single girder gantry crane models like AQ-MH and AQ-NMH. There are other types like AQ-MG, RMG which have higher load capacity.

These cranes feature a horizontal bridge supported by two legs that run along rails or tracks installed on the ground. They are ideal for lifting and moving precast concrete elements such as beams, columns, and panels within the yard.

Rubber Tyred Gantry Crane

Rubber tyred gantry cranes are gantry cranes equipped with rubber wheels for mobility. Unlike regular model gantry cranes, rubber tyred gantry cranes do not require fixed rails or tracks for movement, making them highly flexible and suitable for outdoor applications in precast concrete yards.

Heavy Duty Gantry Crane

Heavy duty gantry cranes are designed for lifting extremely heavy loads in demanding industrial environments, including precast yards. These cranes feature robust construction and powerful lifting mechanisms capable of handling oversized and overweight precast concrete elements with ease. Heavy duty gantry cranes are typically custom-engineered to meet the specific requirements of each precast yard, ensuring reliable performance and maximum efficiency in material handling operations.

In summary, gantry cranes are essential equipment in precast yards, offering versatile and efficient solutions for lifting and moving heavy precast concrete components. Whether it’s a regular model gantry crane like rail moutned gantry crane, a rubber tyred gantry crane, or a heavy duty gantry crane, each type offers unique advantages tailored to the specific needs of different precast yard applications.

Overhead Crane

An overhead crane is used for lifting and transporting heavy precast concrete elements. These overhead cranes typically consist of a horizontal beam that spans the width of the yard and moves along elevated runways, supported by structural columns. The lifting mechanism, which can include a hoist or trolley, is attached to the bridge and is used to raise and lower loads.

In a precast yard, overhead cranes are employed to move precast concrete panels, beams, columns, and other structural elements from production areas to storage or loading areas. Overhead cranes are often customized to suit the specific needs of the precast concrete yard, such as the size and weight of the elements being lifted, the layout of the facility, and safety considerations. Aicrane provides various kinds of overhead precast crane. There are several heavy duty overhead crane models like AQ-LH, AQ-NLH, AQ-QD, AQ-QDX. We also have light duty overhead crane models which has better flexibility. Overall, overhead cranes play a vital role in streamlining operations, improving productivity, and ensuring the safe and efficient handling of precast concrete components in the yard.

Straddle Carrier Crane

There are several kinds of straddle carrier cranes for sale. The tyre straddle carrier is a kind well suited the precast concrete yard.
