The use of Aicrane 25 ton gantry crane will improve work efficiency, safety and flexibility of indoor and outdoor applications. The crane is usually mounted on rails installed on the ground. Gantry crane is highly efficient, reliable and also cost-effective in some cases as it has legs, so it does not rely on building columns, which may lead to a great reduction in material costs.
Buying The Right 25 Ton Gantry Crane
Depending on the type of design, the 25 ton crane can be double girder with or without cantilever, A frame or U frame structure.
The crane can be provided with one or two trolleys. The trolley can have primary or secondary lifting functions. Depending on the type of load, the gantry crane can be equipped with hook, grapple attachment, magnet or vacuum beam.
Gantry crane can be operated from ground via control pendant, wireless remote control or from a driver’s cabin. Multiple controls can also be performed by switching the control from one mode to another.
The crane can be provided with customized service platform, maintenance channel and auxiliary lifting equipment, and also a series of safety devices to ensure safe and efficient operation of the crane.

Since gantry crane can have various features and designs, how can you choose the right crane system for the job?
In order to select the right gantry crane, there are a few things to be considered:
- What type of gantry crane do you need?
- What maximum rated load is required?
- What span of the crane is required?
- What lifting height is required?
- What type of load does the crane lift?
- How many hours does the crane work per day?
- What is the crane work environment?

Wide Applications of 25 Ton Gantry Cranes
The gantry crane can walk directly on the ground track. It is generally used for loading and unloading outdoor cargo. The crane can make good use of the site, and has wide range of operation. The adaptability of the gantry crane is very good, so the crane has been widely used in various industries, such as assembly of power plant equipment, equipment manufacturing and processing, cement frame prefabrication, lifting of heavy objects, loading and unloading in railway freight yards, lifting ship sections in shipyards, lifting gates at hydropower station dams, loading and unloading containers at port terminals, lifting and handling bulky pieces inside the factory, carrying out construction operations at building installation sites, storing timber in the lumber yard, etc.
Structure of Gantry Crane Equipment
The composition of gantry crane is mainly divided into three parts: metal structure, operating mechanism and electrical part.
The main frame structure is mainly composed of main beam and legs. Large gantry cranes usually use double beams. The structure of the main beam has two types: box and truss structure. Generally, the large gantry cranes use rigid legs on one side and flexible legs on the other side to reduce its own weight and compensate for span errors.
The hoist trolley of the double girder gantry crane is basically the same as the bridge crane. It is the unit to raise and lower the load, and also run along the bridge girder.
Bridge travelling mechanism
The operating mechanism of the bridge is mostly driven separately. For outdoor applications, the legs of the crane are equipped with a rail clamp. When the crane is not working or there is strong wind, use the rail clamp to clamp the track to prevent the crane from being blown by the wind and causing accidents.
Motor: running state of the motor is divided into two states: electric state and braking state. Under certain conditions, any motor can operate in either of the above two states.
Lighting and signal: the gantry cranes working in the open field generally need to add 2 to 4 searchlights due to the poor lighting conditions of the site.
Cabin: the cabin is the place where the operators control the entire crane. The operator should be familiar with the use, operation method, lifting capacity and maintenance knowledge of gantry crane to ensure correct operation.
