Industrial overhead crane

Overhead cranes, also known as bridge cranes, are usually used for hoisting materials in workshops, warehouses, and stockyards. It runs through the tracks on both sides of the viaduct, lifting materials without obstacles, and making full use of the space under the bridge. Overhead cranes are currently the most widely used and the largest in number. It is an important equipment for realizing modern industrial production and crane transportation mechanization and automation.
