A gantry crane is a bridge-like structure featuring an i-beam and uprights. This crane type is designed to lift loads from the overhead position using a hoist, and if needed move the load horizontally between the uprights using a trolley. Gantry cranes are widely used for overhead lifting tasks in factories and warehouses. At HOF Equipment Company, we have aluminum gantry cranes for safe and cost-effective overhead lifting. Aluminum is lightweight, yet offers strength, which allows for quick height adjustment and easy transport. HOF Equipment Company carries an expansive range of aluminum gantry crane types, sizes, and capacities.
