READY FOR ULTRA LARGE CONTAINER VESSELS (UL CVS)

READY FOR ULTRA LARGE CONTAINER VESSELS (UL CVS)

The first container cranes were built in the late 1950s and since then they have more than doubled in size. Over the last half century, Ship-to-Shore cranes (STS) have been updated and upgraded with twin-lifting capacities and increased productivity requirements resulting in higher duty cycles, trolley speeds, accelerating and breaking forces.

This had led to increased demands from trolley rail systems.

Our range of specially designed STS crane trolley products and services have been engineered to deliver more reliability tailored to the larger and faster cranes used to quickly load/unload Ultra Large Container Vessels (ULCVs).

INCREASED RELIABILITY OF TROLLEY RUNWAY

RTG and RMG crane automation continually develops in ports worldwide, ensuring low operating cost and high demand and use of the yard capacity. ARTG and ASC break new ground.

Gantrex products and services for trolley rails bring the answer that the market demands for more dependability for today’s stacking cranes.

COMPREHENSIVE SOLUTIONS

Reliable process cranes are a critical component in the overall cost efficiency of any industry or application. From manufacturing to assembly and shipment, efficiency and reliability are determinant factors for success. Handling difficult loads on long or cross-travel cranes, ensuring continuous process flows, the accuracy of material placement, these are just some critical factors that cannot be met if the crane rail track proves unreliable. Problems are compounded even further when facing harsh and demanding conditions such as heat or severe cold, dust or still, aggressive environments.

Our global GANTREX teams offer unrivalled experience in crane rail solutions for all process cranes ranging from casting cranes to refuse incineration installations, and for all types of medium to heavy load overhead cranes, or for specific applications.

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

INNOVATION DRIVING TOMORROW’S PORTS

The past 25 years saw an increase in the size of container ships, which almost tripled to today’s 20 000 TEU capacity. Terminals must adapt the size of cranes to ships to offer productive, cost-effective, higher equipment with longer booms.

Today’s STS cranes are more susceptible to vibration and oscillation, generating a need for increased stability for rail supports in runways.

PREPARED FOR EVERY POSSIBILITY

Gantrex engineers and delivers crane rail tracks products for every industrial application, including portal cranes to steel-slab cranes, ship unloaders and Goliath cranes. All our products are subject to harsh, demanding conditions and severe weather (heat, cold, humidity, dusty or corrosive environments).

Gantrex supplies and installs a wide range of products designed to fix rail runways to the ground using cutting-edge technology to increase the reliability and productivity of its customer’s business. Our enduring experience with the numerous applications of ground runway tracks and efficient interfacing with civil engineers and crane manufacturers helps us understand your needs and address your issues before offering you a customizable solution.

OF CRITICAL IMPORTANCE

Stackers and Reclaimers that handle limestone, coal and other bulk materials are crucial to the processing of mined and other loose material. Whether piling and storing minerals or reclaiming to prepare for shipping, these machines typically run on rails supported by concrete foundations and impart dynamic loads to the rails via the wheels.

Concrete-supported runway details are often overlooked and, as a result, the maintenance and repairs to the runway and the machine itself are often accepted as the norm due to a lack of attention to these runway details.
