Overhead cranes always cover a very specific area within a cleanroom. They function as a means of transport for goods that need to be moved horizontally from A to B, but can also be used to just lower and lift certain products.
Cleanroom overhead cranes are particularly useful if you have to move heavy and bulky materials frequently. On top of that, overhead cranes are equipped with precision controls, making stacking and piling of goods more precise and efficient.
A single girder overhead crane
A single girder crane has just one main girder. The crane can move lightweight materials or applications from one place to another very quickly. And is often one of the most affordable hoisting and lifting solutions. And it can be used for a variety of purposes.
A double girder overhead crane
A double girder crane – or double girder crane – is usually installed in a very large and long cleanroom. Its name, double girder, is derived from its construction. The crane consists of two long and heavy beams – a double beam bridge – that make it possible to lift more weight and move it across a large space. A double girder crane (or Electronic Overhead Traveling crane) is always operated electrically, hence its name.
