HOT cranes or hydraulic overhead traveling cranes are widely used in different sectors such as engineering units, construction, warehousing and distribution facilities etc. These have high load carrying capacity that can range to 120 Tonnes. Moreover, additional spares can also be added to these cranes to increase their load carrying capacity and functionality. These provide optimum material transfer and handling even in tough working situations, for instance minimum or limited space, high temperature etc. These cranes are sturdy, innovatively designed and also reliable owing to their long service life. Since their invention, hot cranes have completely revolutionized load handling globally.
How Do Hot Cranes Work:
Hydraulic overload traveling cranes use liquid fluid power for running. Pressure propelled fluids are used to generate, control and transmit power. The fluids generally used are mineral oil, water, silicone oils, propylene glycol etc. The working idea of hot cranes basically is “the force that is applied at one point is transmitted to another point using the fluids”, with the force being almost always multiplied in the process.
Resistant to corrosion and rust
Shock load prevention, that allows smooth load pick up
Sway control, this gives exact load positioning, lessening the load cycle times
Micro speed, which allows for very slow movement of the cranes to improve the load control
Outstanding crane geometry, resulting in exceptional travel characteristics
The cranes are lightweight and compact in design, allowing for easy movement of these from one factory area to another
Very simple to use and easy to maintain
These consume relatively less power for transporting the objects from one place to another
Extremely stable and rugged in construction, with capability to support relatively large weights
Hot cranes are considerably inexpensive compared to other cranes
Hydraulic overhead traveling cranes are widely distinguished for their smooth, hassle free and noiseless operation. These cranes have wide application in rail coach manufacturing facilities, ship construction factories, paper mils, military vehicles manufacturing units and many more.
