What is an overhead crane?
An overhead crane is a common piece of industrial equipment that is mainly used to lift and lower heavy loads. If you want to operate an overhead crane, you must first understand its basic principles.
A overhead crane is generally divided into the bridge, end column, main turntable, sub turntable, manipulator, drive system and lifting system and other parts.
The bridge is generally composed of two ends of the end column and the middle of the bridge deck, the bridge deck mainly supports the main turntable and vice turntable.
The end column is the main support structure of the overhead crane, it is generally rectangular or cylindrical, the two ends of the bridge support.
The main turntable is the main part of the overhead crane, it is located on the bridge deck, through the drive system to drive the boom to lift the goods.
The secondary turntable is located on the bridge, mainly used to drive the manipulator to complete the operation.
The console is mainly used to manipulate the various movements of the overhead crane, such as lifting, forward and backward.
The overhead crane consists of two main parts: the bridge and spreader. The bridge is usually made of steel or aluminum, which supports the spreader and runs it along a track on both sides. The spreader is usually an electric motor, and this motor enables the objects on the spreader to be moved and lifted.
When you use an overhead crane, pay special attention to safety. Make sure you know and understand all the relevant safety rules and procedures. In the event of an accident, stop using the equipment immediately and report it to the appropriate person.
How to operate an overhead crane safely
How to operate an overhead crane?
The overhead crane is a very common industrial equipment used for lifting and transporting heavy loads. It has high operating speed, lifting accuracy, and balancing performance. overhead cranes have a long service life and can operate normally even under high-intensity working conditions.
However, because the overhead crane is at a high altitude, the improper operation can easily cause accidental injury. Therefore, before using the overhead crane, it is necessary to read the manual carefully and familiar with the relevant safety operating rules.
Overhead crane’s common failures and handling methods
An Overhead crane is a piece of common industrial equipment, it is mainly used to lift items. How to correctly operate the overhead crane, as well as the handling of common failures, the following is to introduce you.
First, before using the overhead crane, you should first carry out a safety inspection to ensure that the equipment is intact.
Secondly, when using overhead cranes to lift items, attention should be paid to maintaining balance, to avoid tilting or dropping the items lifted.
Finally, if a malfunction occurs, you should stop using it immediately and look for help. Common malfunctions include items tilting or falling, insufficient power, and robot malfunction. To properly handle these malfunctions, you need to seek professional help.
Before using the overhead crane, you should read the instructions carefully to understand the function of each part of the machine and how to operate the crane correctly. Second, the user should have an accurate estimate of the force and volume required for hoisting or material handling. Only in this way can you choose the right size hook and rope to avoid accidents caused by insufficient hooks or ropes. In addition, users should also pay attention to maintaining balance when lifting or material handling to avoid unnecessary risks.
In short, users should try their best to comply with the rules and safety requirements to avoid dangerous accidents.
