Gantry crane, also known as goliath crane, is a type of self supported crane that is used in different types of building projects. They are extensively used in construction sites, granite industry, shipping yards, scrap yards, ports, container handling and in the ship building industry. The principal reason for using them is that they offer economic means to lift heavy weights and can be used as a replacement for certain types of overhead cranes. Since gantry cranes are constructed in a way that they operate on the ground, one does not require a runway structure which can help in saving on concrete foundations. It is also quite easy to install a gantry crane and run all associated operations with it.



Whether mobile or mounted, it is quite easy to assemble and disassemble a gantry crane. These cranes are usually available in aluminum, steel or in any other lightweight material along with flexible spans and heights. Mainly the gantry cranes are divided into three different types, namely portable gantry cranes, adjustable gantry cranes and the motor driven gantry cranes. Of these three types, the portable and adjustable gantry cranes are operated manually. Each of these three types are used extensively in the industrial sectors as they are all equally productive and come with a range of useful features.
