Gantry Cranes

Advantages of Gantry Cranes are:

  • Can be used where overhead runways are not practical.
  • A much greater bridge weight than an equivalent overhead crane.

Gantry Cranes are generally used for moving heavy loads, often outdoors. EMH has designed and built many large gantries with features such as rotating hoists, multiple hoists and enclosed cabs.

EMH builds a complete range of gantry cranes including single girder, double girder, double leg, single leg, and cantilever styles for indoor or outdoor service. Capacities, spans and heights are virtually unlimited.
