Common Overhead Crane Questions
At American Western Steel, we offer electric hoists for our overhead cranes. Electric hoists control the trolley mechanisms and the traveling mechanism. The advantage of our San Antonio electric hoists is that they are a 3-in-1 devices providing lifting, horizontal travel, and vertical travel operations.
Our overhead cranes are powered by three phase AC power systems. Power must be installed as movable, because the crane system travels the length of the crane rails installed. Ask us about our San Antonio crane installation services.
The speed of bridge cranes is measured in the lifting speed, trolley speed, and traveling speed. The largest factor influencing the operational speeds is the weight of the object being carried/moved. Low speed for heavy objects is recommended for safety of operation.
Overhead cranes need buffers in order to protect the crane system and surrounding areas from being struct by bridge or object being carried. There are three types of buffers that are widely uses: The spring buffer, rubber buffer, and hydraulic buffer.
