  • Choo-Choo Trains and Track Cranes

    Track cranes can be considered synonymous with bridge cranes. However, let us make a distinction for the following; let's call bridge cranes any crane on a track overhead, and let's focus on stacker cranes that move on tracks in the aisles of warehouses between storage racks as part of automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS), much like a choo-choo train picks people up at one station and deposits them at their destination. Stacker track cranes come with a forklift type mechanism that can be raised and lowered by automated computer...

  • Benefits of Patented Track Cranes

    Did you know that there is a difference between patented track cranes and unpatented cranes? Patented cranes are superior to non-patented cranes in a variety of ways. The distinguishing features of patented cranes provide a variety of advantages over non-patented cranes. Factories that use track cranes should carefully consider the benefits that a track crane can provide over the cost-savings that purchasing a non-track crane will bring to identify the best crane for their unique uses. The main difference between a patented crane and a non-patented crane is the design...

  • Conductix-Wampfler Electrifies RTGs in Montreal

    Conductix-Wampfler has completed what it claimed was Canada’s first electrified rubber-tyred gantry (E-RTG) container crane conversion at the Port of Montreal.

Industry Information

Track Cranes

A track crane is a kind of machine used to lift and transport heavy equipment and materials by way of a rolling mechanism along a set travel path, or track. Track cranes are useful for handling loads quickly, safely and efficiently.

Depending on the kind, track cranes can be arranged to fit its surroundings, as to increase efficiency and productivity. The bottom flange (the hardware used to create secure connections when conjoining sections of pipes, tubes and other materials in transmission equipment) of many kinds of track cranes are unlike normal flanges, in that it has a raised tread suitable for rolling purposes. This design is intended for high-repetition operations, such as in most factories.  A track crane is preferred for its precision, as well as its durability, and can handle both light and heavy loads for many years.  The surface on the raised treads of the flange allows the crane to roll with ease. Because of this type of track crane’s free-running trolley, heavy, awkward items can be moved quickly and easily. Additionally, depending on the number of runways a particular track crane has, transport can happen throughout a very large space, as well as lift and position loads in otherwise extremely inaccessible areas, such as between pillars and columns.

A variety of components in certain track cranes allow control of route, so as to better fit with the structural elements of a workspace. These kinds of track cranes can be mounted on walls or pieces of machinery, and can typically be dismantled and re-erected. Many track cranes are suspended overhead, which is appropriate for efficient handling and positioning of goods. Suspended track cranes decrease horizontal pressures and offer protection from bending strains. In addition, the height of a suspended track crane can be easily adjusted via threaded suspension rods and ball joint heads.  Such track cranes are similar to bridge cranes and both are used in many workplaces, like factories, warehouses and store yards, where heavy equipment and supplies are regularly moved from one place to another. Because track cranes generally do not rely on independent energy sources, like batteries or natural gas reservoirs, they, like bridge cranes, are a faster, cheaper and more efficient alternative to other transport tools, like fork-lifts and hi-lows.
