Innovation has always been one of the corner stones of Gantrex’ marketing strategy and has become part of the DNA for every Gantrex employee around the world, whether it is an engineer developing a new product, or a technician improving on installation processes to improve efficiency.
At Gantrex, we strongly believe in market leadership through technological and product leadership, as evidenced by the numerous of innovative products we have developed throughout the past decades, more often than not in close collaboration with our customers:
In 2012, Gantrex revolutionized the rail fastening world with the development of the RailLok™ rail clip and pad series, a range of patented products developed in response to the increasingly demanding dynamic circumstances and tighter installation tolerances in today’s crane runway applications.
Gantrex also developed the first fully adjustable crane rail chair, a patented product that meanwhile has been successfully installed in multiple projects in Australia, China, Europe and North America.
In 2014, Gantrex developed a flexible short rail solution in response to numerous requests from our port customers to find a solution to the common problem of rail wear, vibration, fatigue failure and driver discomfort on Ship-to-Shore cranes. This patented product has been proven to reduce vibration, improve driver comfort and reduce maintenance on cranes in North America, Europe and Middle East.
Gantrex developed numerous other products, which include a side load measuring clip, able to measure with sufficient accuracy the side load omitted by the cranes on the rail system, a reconstituted rubber trench infill solution, designed to reduce tripping hazard and damage to crossing vehicles, and even a runway survey robot that allows automatic line & level surveying of crane runways based on in-house developed software and connection with Trimble total stations.
