Top running cranes consist of an overhead traveling crane that rides on
the top of the runway beams. Top running systems can typically transport
or lift loads of up to 35 tons and have an average span of 90 feet.
Underhung cranes, also referred to as under running cranes provide less
lift than top running cranes. Most underhung crane systems are limited
to a span of 75 feet and a load capacity of up to 25 tons.
Bridge girders for both single girder and double girder crane systems are constructed using a structural
steel beam such as an I-beam or a specially engineered box girder.
I-beams are more cost-effective and efficient for systems with shorter bridge crane spans and capacities up
to 30 tons. They need limited engineering and fabrication.
Box girder cranes use specially engineered and fabricated box beams that are engineered to CMAA
specifications. Box girders are ideal in applications with longer spans and higher capacities and can be
designed to accommodate specific needs related to hook height and runway design.
A single girder crane has only one bridge beam spanning two
runway rails that sit on top or below with runway tracks. Single
girder cranes hold less weight but are dependable and the most
Easier to install, maintain, and service
Best value for light to medium-duty cranes
Used in facilities with low headroom
Ideal for warehouses, manufacturing facilities, workshops, and production facilities
Double girder systems can lift weights of up to 100 + tons and
consist of two bridge beams that are typically mounted above
the runway beams. Double girder systems are designed to handle
heavy duty lifting needs.
No limits to maximum capacity of span
Best for frequent lifting or heavy loads
More hook height and lift than single girder
Good for indoor and outdoor applications including iron and steel, mining, ports, and railyards

Manufacturing is one of the
leading industries in the US. In
any manufacturing facility,
there is a need for heavy lifting
equipment to lift & position
parts and equipment.
In an industry that requires
lifting and moving large rolls of
finished paper and timber logs
for processing, heavy lifting
power with the help of
overhead cranes is required.
