Gantry Cranes


The special design will not only save weight in the range of the crane girder, but also at the pillars. Unlike other designs, our single girder gantry cranes require only two supporting pillars. At the lower section, the pillars are shaped oval and parallel to the crane track to protect the crane against lateral buckling. At the top of the crane however, the pillars are oval and parallel to the main girders to increase the stability in the direction of the main girders. The results of these exceptional characteristics are high stability in all directions with a low dead weight in contrast to conventional systems. The OVAL profile also avoids water deposits on the crane and protects the steel structure against rust. The aerodynamically favorable properties of the girder and the pillars prevent the drive units from damage by reducing the wind loads. Because of these properties our gantry cranes are best suitable for outdoor operations.


  • Only 2 instead of 4 pillars required
  • Low dead weight
  • Higher stability than conventional systems
  • Low contact surface for wind
  • Best suitable for outdoor operations
  • Also available as semi-gantry cranes

By means of the modular system our gantry cranes are specially designed according to your requirements.



Double Girder Gantry Cranes


Our innovative double girder gantry cranes use the stable OVAL profile not only for the crane girders, but also for the pillars. Round shapes and durable constructions are characteristic for our gantry cranes in patented design. In addition to weight savings and the high stability the OVAL profile also provides good aerodynamic characteristics and prevents the girders from corrosion by water or dirt sedimentation. These properties make our double girder gantry cranes best suitable for outdoor operations.
The double girder gantry cranes feature the familiar benefits of the single girder gantry cranes and allow also heavy-duty applications by the use of a parallel arrangement of two OVAL profile girders. Consequently, capacities of up to 350 tons and spans of up to 50 meters are possible. Due to the modular system our double girder gantry cranes are specially designed according to your needs.


  • Low dead weight
  • Low contact surface for wind
  • Spans of up to 50 meters possible
  • Higher stability than conventional box girder constructions
  • Less abrasion by weather conditions
  • Suitable best for outdoor operations
  • Also available as semi-gantry crane
