About Overhead Bridge Cranes

Overhead cranes, or bridge cranes, are a piece of elevated equipment that moves heavy material across commercial and industrial environments. Each overhead crane is designed and engineered for a specific purpose.

  • Overhead cranes can be designed for all kinds of configurations to improve capacity and performance. Some of the most basic uses include:
  • Loading and unloading material from trucks
  • Moving material around a facility more efficiently than a forklift or pallet jack.
  • Flipping or pulling dies from a stamping machine
  • Feeding raw material into a machine in a manufacturing setting
  • Moving parts down an assembly line
  • Moving containers around a receiving yard


Top running cranes include a rail installed on top of each runway, and the bridge wheels move on the rail instead of the runways. They are ideal for moving extremely heavy loads, and they can be designed in single-girder or double-girder configurations. Both configurations are equally reliable and durable. However, the double-girder top running crane is ideal when extremely high hook height is necessary. Additionally, each configuration has unique benefits and is equipped to handle different load capacities, spans, and types of service.


Underhung cranes, which are often called under-running bridge cranes, allow you to maximize your facility’s floor space for production and storage because they are supported by the ceiling trusses or the roof structure. Like top-running bridge cranes, underhung cranes can be designed in single-girder or double-girder configurations. However, underhung cranes are ideal for moving lighter loads generally, so the double-girder configurations are typically used to move only loads of maximum capacity, which is around 10 tons.  They also have the ability to run side-by-side without interfering with one another. Another mechanical advantage of underhung crane systems is their ability for multiple systems to be interlocked, enabling operators to transfer loads between them. They can also interlock with monorails, allowing for material transfer along a fixed path.

Jib Cranes, Monorails, and Gantry Cranes

CraneWerks also offers other material handling devices to improve functionality and improve safety. Jib Cranes, Gantry Cranes, and Monorails improve precision, productivity, and safety at your workspace with Intelligent Lifting. These light to medium duty lifting devices are the perfect ergonomic solution where an overhead crane system is not feasible.
