Material handling is a key phenomenon in any industrial environment. There are many factors that influence the choice of mechanical device for material handling. These include the weight of the materials, the distance to be transported, the frequency and repetitiveness of the handling, cost and safety, as well as the manufacturing process.
Handling materials in high temperatures and distance from them is another reason overhead cranes are necessary. Heavy overhead cranes are essential for many industrial sectors. These include Paper Mills and Steel Plants, Sugar Mills and Cement Plants, Chemical Sector, Railways, and Cement Plants.
An overhead crane is also known as a bridge crane and operates horizontally over two parallel runways. It is connected to a traveling bridge. To lift materials, the lifting component, called hoist, travels along a bridge. The various manufacturing processes can affect the span.
Overhead cranes are used to keep hazardous elements, such as heat, acidity and combustibility, away from workers. In order to perform sequential processes, such as acid tank, water tank, chemical tank, fluxing, and galvanizing, heavy structural materials must be placed in several tanks.
Similar operations are performed in steel plants by overhead cranes, such as feeding raw materials into a furnace and cooling them, and lifting and loading finished coils onto trains and trucks.
