Air Technical Industries announces the development of a unique, low profile Gantry Crane, with hydraulic cable lift and mobile trolley built right into the double girder boom. Only the hook hangs below the boom for low headroom requirements, lifting heavy loads in crowded areas such as boiler rooms, auxiliary power generators, or compressors.

Low-Profile Gantry Crane

The Gantry Crane is constructed out of aluminum and breaks down into five major components so that one person, with help of the V-Master portable foldable mobile hydraulic crane, can load and unload the crane from a flat bed truck, carry it to the desired location and then assemble it in about ten minutes.

The trolley’s mobility is on six flanged wheels and is propelled by a continuous chain with worm-gear drive to keep the trolley locked in the desired position.

The bridge span is available in 8, 10 and 12 foot widths and 8, 10 and 12 foot under boom heights. The hydraulic cable lift has a 6, 8 or 10 foot lifting range and the end of the cable is equipped with a swivel safety eye hook. The capacity is available in 4,000, 6,000 and 10,000 pounds.

The power available is portable battery power 12 volts DC, with push button remote control, 110 volts AC single phase, or 230-460 volts 3-phase AC power. For hazardous operations, the unit can be air powered. The trolley is continuous hand-chain operated and optional powered trolley traversing is available.

The low profile gantry is an ideal tool where heavy loads in low headroom or crowded areas must be lifted and handled effectively by one person.
