Container Stacking Cranes



INNOVATIVE DRIVE FOR TOMORROW’S PORTS

Rail Mounted Gantry cranes (RMG) in ports and intermodal areas commonly generate specific rail track system engineering due to ground constraints (settlement), speed or still, the varying stacking heights and spans of the crane.

In addition to these binding conditions, the mechanization of RMG cranes constantly improves in ports worldwide, guaranteeing low operating cost, high availability and optimal exploitation of the yard capacity: Automated Stacking Cranes (ASC) truly break new ground

Rail system design

The track design of container stacking cranes is key to the successful operation of the cranes. Especially with ASCs, the tolerances of the rail and the supporting foundations are critical to maximizing efficiency and reducing operational downtimes

RAIL STABILITY

  • Gantrex’ RailLok™ design ensures full and tight contact between the upper component of the clip and rail foot. Coupled with the Gantrex’ patented self-locking wedge, it keeps the tightened clip bolts in tension.
 
  • The RailLok™ pad’s specific grooves and edge design prevents damage or movement of the pads resultant from rail twisting and the bow wave effect, almost completely eliminating the risk of premature pad weakening ensuing from dirt ingress.
Working hand-in-hand with civil engineers and crane manufacturers, Gantrex provides a comprehensive range of products, designs, supplies and installations for crane rails.
