Technical Cranes experience of overhead crane manufacturing means we are a market leader in manufacturing Goliath cranes.
Goliath cranes, also referred to as a Portal Crane or a Gantry crane, is a type of crane that comprises of a horizontal main bridge beam supported by vertical legs bolted to moving boggie carriages.
Manufacture and Usage
The Goliath cranes that we manufacture here at Technical Cranes are all custom built in our factory and can be supplied with spans in excess of 40 metres, with SWL of up to 200 Tonnes and with single or double cantilevers at each end of the crane as required.
We manufacture both single girder or twin girder Goliath cranes as well as Semi-Goliath cranes which utilises only one side of supporting steelwork and one floor mounted rail.
These cranes are typically associated with outdoor applications such as assembly areas, moving equipment around a stock yard or loading and unloading directly onto trailers. However, these can be used inside where the existing structure is not adequate for additional loading of steelwork or where free standing steelwork is not possible.
This can make a crane a more cost effective option over an overhead gantry crane as it requires less expensive gantry steelwork. Another advantage of a these systems rather than an overhead crane is that they are often more easily dismantled to be moved and used at a different site if needed.
