Road & Bridge Construction

Aicrane is well aware of the complexities and high demands of the road and bridge construction industry:
heavy machinery, intricate engineering designs, environmental impacts, stringent regulations,
and the need for precision and efficiency.
In road and bridge construction, precast concrete components need to be transported
from the precast yard to the construction site, where they are then placed in specific positions
and combined with other components.

Our offerings of high-quality handling and assembly equipment,
innovative technologies, and comprehensive services are designed to enhance project safety
and productivity at every stage, from planning to completion.

Solution for Road & Bridge Construction Industry

Different lifting machines can be combined as road and bridge construction solution for various scenarios. Aicrane provides two solutions for precast components transportation and assembly operation.

Precast Componnents Transportation Solution

For precast bridge construction, the prefab concrete beam need to be transferred from the prefab yard to the construction site. The solution for prefab yard requires combination of several heavy lifting machinery.

Option 1: General Purposed Gantry Crane

The gantry crane within the prefab yard is designed to handle and position prefabricated concrete beams and other materials with precision. If there are already rails in the prefab yard, we recommend the rail mounted gantry crane which can use on the existing rails. They are suitable for lighter concrete components. The gantry crane excels in relocating beams, loading them onto hydraulic transporters or trucks, and executing lifting tasks within the yard.

After we show the design of straddle carrier to customers and get their approval, the product will be produced. Then it will be transported to the construction site. Firstly, the carrier is utilized to adeptly lift and position prefabricated segments onto the carrier itself from hydraulic transporters. Subsequently, it transports these segments to their designated installation points. One of its features is the capability to align and securely connect the segments once in position, ensuring seamless integration into the overarching structure.

Option 2: Utilizing Hydraulic Transporter with Launching Gantry Crane

The launching gantry crane is suitable for large-span, river-crossing bridge construction, especially for continuous beam bridges and continuous rigid frame bridges that require high precision and high load-bearing capacity.The launching gantry crane plays an important role in the assembly of beam segments of bridges. The JP150-50 launching gantry crane is also suitable for road construcion. Aicrane can provide customized solution for both hydraulic transport and launching gantry crane to make sure them fit each other in size and load capacity.
