Gantry cranes

Gantry cranes are used when heavy loads have to be moved horizontally and vertically. Their field of application is extremely diverse. VAHLE supplies the right solution for energy supply and positioning for every area.

Powerful energy supply and positioning for gantry cranes

Gantry cranes are mostly used outdoors, for example in ports, container handling areas, above large production facilities or in shipyards. In most cases, they move on two parallel rails.

Although mobile, their design allows them to span large spans and lift very heavy loads. As they are now mostly electrically driven and increasingly automatically controlled, they require robust and powerful systems for power supply and positioning.

VAHLE is the specialist for power supply, data communication and positioning of crane systems. Depending on the application, we offer a variety of different designs such as conductor rails, conductor and trailing cables or cable drums.
