Rail installation for overhead crane

For overhead crane, the crane rail are paved on supporting beam, which include steel beam and concrete beam.i1lHenan Weihua Machinery Co., Ltd

According to overhead crane drawing, settle down the position, altitude. Before install rail, firstly inspect groove, section, straight line, and warp of the crane rail, after qualified, pave the crane rail. And find out rail datum line.i1lHenan Weihua Machinery Co., Ltd

Crane rail on supporting beam

If the crane rail is paved on supporting beam, the crane rail center distance and supporting beam center distance, their deviation should be within 10mm, and not bigger than beam half thickness.i1lHenan Weihua Machinery Co., Ltd

Crane rail is fixed on supporting beam, rail bottom should be sole laying on beam top. If there is space and long is more than 200mm, there should be padded, pad length is more than 100mm, width is 10—20mm wider than rail bottom. Each set of pad must not more than 3 layers. Pads are welded to supporting beam.i1lHenan Weihua Machinery Co., Ltd
The deviation between cane rail center distance and installing datum line, should be not more than 5mm for general gantry crane.i1lHenan Weihua Machinery Co., Ltd

If the crane span length is not more than 10m, rail center distance allow a deviation of ±3.0 mm.i1lHenan Weihua Machinery Co., Ltd
if crane span is more than 10m, rail center distance allow a deviation of ±15 mm. Following is formula:i1lHenan Weihua Machinery Co., Ltd
△S=±[3+0.25(S-10)] : △S: crane span deviation(mm) S—rail center distance deviation(m)i1lHenan Weihua Machinery Co., Ltd

The crane rail connecting joint should be stagger, the staggered distance is not same as wheel gauge. And on joint, the supporting point should be at span’s 1/3~1/4. Crane rail i-beam flange weld bevel butt weld, web has same strength through welding butt weld, after welding, the welding surface is leveling. Artifacts correction for the inclination of the I beam flange delta < / 80 b, b is I beam flange width. Torsion of Angle steel, i-beam vector △h≤L/1000 or less, but shall not be bigger than 5 mm. Local buckling of steel plate rise within a certain range f≤1.5mm.i1lHenan Weihua Machinery Co., Ltd

Some steel plate is out of shape, you can correct it by hammer. For some structural steel, there is special Jack to do gagging. If it is difficult, heat straightening is possible, but the heat temperature should be not more than 900°C.i1lHenan Weihua Machinery Co., Ltd

Then make holes for bolts on end of crane rail used to connecting by clamps. You should make holes by mechanical not instead of gas cutting. Bolts can’t have crack, rag or nick.i1lHenan Weihua Machinery Co., Ltd
At last, pave the crane rail and fix it on supporting beam with welding or bolts platens. The welding is inspected by ultrasonic, require I grade.i1lHenan Weihua Machinery Co., Ltd

Crane rail on concrete beam

If the crane rail is paved on concrete beam, firstly, there should be embedded steel plate on top of concrete beam. Crane rail is fixed on the embedded steel plate, which is similar as gantry crane rail foundation. Other work is same as above.i1lHenan Weihua Machinery Co., Ltd

Crane rail installation for gantry cranes

If the gantry cranes work in factory, storage or yard, usually the crane rail is sunken in a groove. For some big working space such as port / dock, crane rail is salient on ground. No matter what condition it is, there should be foundation under the gantry crane rail to make sure the ground can bearing the gantry cane and wheel Max. loading pressure.i1lHenan Weihua Machinery Co., Ltd

Crane Rail Repair Program

Rail repair for rail crane is necessary to ensure crane safety. For your overhead crane and gantry crane, the following repair tip is worthy for your reading.i1lHenan Weihua Machinery Co., Ltd

1,Remove Existing Crane rail: loose the bolts &nuts and for reserve, or cut the platens by gas cutting, these platens will be waste. Lifting crane rail drop to ground by hoisting.i1lHenan Weihua Machinery Co., Ltd
2,Inspect supporting beam:i1lHenan Weihua Machinery Co., Ltd

  • a) Test the clearance room from beam top to roof bottom;
  • b) Measure distance between both sides beam centers;
  • c) Check if the beam, between two supporting points, is out of shape or sag.

3, Check if crane rail top tread is smaller/ deformation because of wheel’s friction. And inspect if crane rail is straight still.i1lHenan Weihua Machinery Co., Ltd

Pave crane rail correctly, operate your overhead crane and gantry crane safely. Contact WeihuaHoist and Crane for more information oni1lHenan Weihua Machinery Co., Ltd
