RE: Difference Between HOIST CRANE and OVERHEAD CRANE (Translation English-Spanish)

Hello everybody:

Though my mother tongue is not portuguese, I have found this interesting site where you can find a good source of information.

This section specifies the kind of equipment you require. Overhead Cranes come in four basic configurations;

Top Running
The Crane bridge travels on top of rails mounted on a Gantry Beam supported by either the building columns or columns specifically engineered for the crane.

Under Running
The Crane Bridge travels on the bottom flange of the runway beam which is usually supported by the roof structure or a Goal Post Structure.

Single Girder
The Crane consists of two end carriages, a single bridge girder and the trolley hoist unit. The trolley runs on the bottom flange of the bridge girder.

Double Girder
The Crane consists of two end carriages, two bridge girders and the trolley hoist unit.

El que no puede andar, se sienta.

RE: Difference Between HOIST CRANE and OVERHEAD CRANE (Translation English-Spanish)

I may be wrong but I think Over Head Crane and Hoist Crane are the same thing also called Bridge Crane

Chain block is this: http://www.motherland.com.sg/catalog/images/niko-c...


Over Head Crane = Hoist Crane = Bridge Crane = PUENTE GRUA

Traveling Rail Beam = Viga de Riel de Traslacion
Traveling Rail = Riel de Traslacion
