There are mainly two types of container gantry cranes: rail mounted gantry crane and rubber tyred gantry crane. The lifting capacities of cranes are 30.5 ton, 35 ton, 40.5 ton, 45 ton and 50 ton etc. The span is from 20m to 40m, the work duty of the crane is A6, and the working temperature is in the range of -20°C~40°C.
The container gantry crane usually adopt cabin operation, that is to say, the operators operate the crane in the cabin. The cabin can travel along the length of the main beam of the crane so that the operators can position the spreader easily and lift or lower the containers as needed. The operators should be trained and get qualified before they operate the crane, otherwise, they are not allowed to do the operations without knowing the crane control and operation well. They not only have to know how to control the crane safely, but also have to know how to inspect the crane before each use to make sure the crane is in good condition during working.
A container crane can rely on different operating systems to provide strength and power for it to lift and transport different sizes of containers. Some cranes use hydraulic lifting mechanism, and others use electric or hybrid engine to supply the power. Generally, electric gantry crane is more commonly used on various work occasions.
