Purpose of Employing Goliath Gantry

Cranes at Construction Sites

What characterises a Goliath Gantry crane?

The Goliath or Gantry cranes are the largest among their sister cranes in the

industry today. Its structure essentially has a trolley built on top of a statement

gantry. The crane is mounted on the top of this moving trolley, which very easily

lets the crane move and does its work on heights. The huge gantry supports the

entire trolley and the crane on top of it. The gantry has wheels attached to it so it

can

move

back

and

forth

on

a

railway

track

built

for

it.

The gantry crane is supported by itself on a ground level which is essential, the

only difference between goliath and gantry crane. The gantry that supports the

trolley and the crane overhead is 138 metres in height and 210 meters in width.

The girder of the gantry is supported by two legs. One of them is fixed at its

position and the other is hinged at an angle. This is done so as to reduce bending

which could be caused due to excessive stress. This type of built minimizes stress

on the legs and makes the structure a lot safer.

The goliath gantry crane, due to its incomparable structure has used in various

industries and places.

Purposes to use

A goliath gantry crane is a huge metal body that is meant to lift weight to

insurmountable heights. The goliath gantry crane can lift a mammoth 1200 tons

of weight in one go, over a span of 210 metres. The crane can lift weights to a

height

of

98

metres

These cranes are used to shift heavy load, lift and transport heavy weights,

machines,

tools

etc.

They are applicable at the following places: -

above

the

ground

level.

in

a

working

area.

On shipyards to construct vessels.

Lift heavy loads on shipyards like complete ship blocks.

Construct large, high-rise buildings.

At mines and quarries.

Construction sites

The goliath gantry cranes are extremely reliable and safe to bring to use and are

of two types.


Goliath crane the useful crane in today s industry

One is with the girder being alone (single) and the other is with two girders, that

are parallel to each other. Of these two, the single girder goliath crane is used

heavily in construction than the double girder goliath gantry crane. This owing to

the fact that firstly, less material (metal) is uses to construct the crane which

reduces the cost of the crane and hence, reduces the cost of the service.

Secondly, a single girder can easily control the adverse effects or deformation or

elongation due to excessive heat; a double girder may create unwanted stress

when one face of the girder is heated extensively, that makes the whole machine

unreliable.

Thirdly, it has less weight and operates more efficiently and is highly rigid.

In comparison to other types of cranes, they are a lot easier to operate and

demand less repair due to wear and tear.

So, this is it. We hope we threw enough lights on the purpose of goliath gantry

crane on the construction site.
