There are three main kinds of crane in terms of the actual design, and these are the jib cranes, which are effectively a post with a supported beam mounted on it; bridge cranesCommercial & Industrial Cranes


One of the most important aspects to consider when stocking or equipping a modern industrial facility for maximum efficiency is to install the right number of industrial cranes throughout the building.  By streamlining your internal distribution network through the careful positioning of lifting equipment where it is needed, time can be saved throughout processes, and this will lead to a more profitable enterprise as a result.


There are a number of different designs for industrial cranes that are available to include within a modern factory or other facility, and all of them have slightly different purposes in both their design, and their usage.  Choosing the right equipment for a variety of different roles throughout your business requires careful consideration, and a number of different factors such as the total cost of installation compared to the efficiency gains that you can expect as a result of this need to be considered.


Depending on your exact needs, there are a wide variety of different industrial cranes that you can use.  There are three main kinds of crane in terms of the actual design, and these are the jib cranes, which are effectively a post with a supported beam mounted on it; bridge cranes, which tend to be mounted on the walls of the factory or supported from the roof; and gantry cranes, which have two legs that support a horizontal gantry between them.


Jib cranes are generally static.  They are an extremely versatile industrial crane that has a large number of different uses and can be very powerful.  Normally, a jib crane is used for moving an object from one location to another.  The load can be lifted, swung, and with certain designs of the crane, they can also be slipped along the jib in order to offer a small amount of lateral movement too.  Jib cranes can be used in a huge number of different situations including in a loading bay, as well as for loading items onto workstations throughout the facility.


Gantry cranes are typically used for vertically lifting objects from one surface onto another.  It is not recommended to move a gantry crane while it is in use, as this can cause accidents.  As with all industrial cranes, great care needs to be taken when using gantries, as they are capable of supporting very large loads, and this needs to be remembered when carrying out the work.


Depending on the exact design and implementation of a bridge crane, the entire factory could be within reach of the lifting gear, and as a result, the crane can be used to pick up enormous weights from one place, and move them very quickly from one end of the building to the other.  Bridge cranes are extremely efficient ways of moving objects around the building, and can provide a real boost to the way a factory is able to move things around.


The key to boosting efficiency in your factory is ensuring that you create a work path that is as simple and fast as possible without compromising on quality.  With this in mind, choosing what particular industrial cranes should be used where is important, and can make a huge difference in short order to the overall way in which the factory or other industrial unit works.
