Gantry cranes are generally used for lifting heavy objects. Because of this, they are often employed during Fabrication, Assembly, Manufacturing and moving materials in warehouses in situations where a forklift cannot reach. Gantries are widely used in large factories and open yards to lift and move around heavy objects or components.

The term ‘gantry crane’ can be used to describe several different lifting systems, so in case you’re unclear it’s good to start with the question – what exactly is a gantry crane?
A gantry crane is a crane built on top of a gantry, which is a structure used to straddle an object or workspace. They can range from enormous ‘full’ gantry cranes, capable of lifting some of the heaviest loads in the world, to small cranes, used for tasks such as lifting engines out of cars and other vehicles. These are also called portal cranes, the ‘portal’ being the empty space straddled by the gantry.
Other Gantry cranes
An overhead crane (also known as a bridge crane) are often used interchangeably, as both types reach over their workload. The main difference between the two is that on gantry cranes, the entire structure is usually wheeled along (often on rails). On an overhead crane, the supporting structure is fixed in location. This is usually in the form of the walls or ceiling of a building, which is attached to a movable hoist running overhead along a rail or beam (which may also move).
An overhead crane can refer to a system with a horizontal beam that travels along a supporting gantry steel work – to make it even more confusing.
Where is a gantry crane used?
Gantry cranes are generally used for lifting extremely heavy objects. Because of this, they are often employed during shipbuilding, where the crane straddles the ship to allow for very large jobs, such as lifting the engines into the ship.
Smaller gantry cranes are generally used for manufacturing jobs, and shifting large parts in and out of locations – or between work stations and assembly points. In warehouses (where there are heavier materials and loads to be moved) gantry cranes are often used as they can typically carry weights of up to four tons.
