LDY model electric single girder foundry crane belongs to a light duty overhead crane, specially designed for lifting and transferring molten metal in metallurgy and casting places. It can also be used for handling molten non-metallic materials and hot solid metal. The foundry overhead crane is generally outfitted with YH type metallurgical electric hoist, and its lifting capacity is not more than 10 tons. This crane is designed according to JB/T 1306-2008 standards.
The foundry crane has a wide application, such as steel mill, hydropower, shipbuilding, aerospace and petrochemical. It is mainly operated by means of wireless remote control or cabin control for safety.
Structural Features of Single Girder Foundry Crane
- The bottom of foundry crane girder adopts special insulation treatment.
- Hoisting and travelling mechanisms adopt conical rotor motors with large starting torque and H-class insulation.
- The foundry overhead crane uses heat resistance cables.
- The electric devices such as motor will take insulation protection measures.
- The overhead crane in metallurgy uses forged hook.
- Instead of conventional wire rope, this overhead lifting equipment utilizes heat resistant wire rope with steel core inside.
Additional Options for Foundry Crane
- Overload limiter and alarm display
- Weighing of load display
- Lifting height limiter
- Central lubrication
- PLC controlling and accident testing.
Foundry Overhead Crane Structure
Foundry crane is used for lifting and transporting hot liquid ladle, so it is also known as ladle crane. As ladle crane is frequently applied in high temperature and dusty environments, it requires a higher safety performance and working class than a conventional single girder bridge crane. The foundry crane, just like other overhead cranes, is constructed in same way. It mainly consists of bridge, hoist trolley, crane running mechanism and electric control system.
Bridge constitutes the main structure of the crane which is composed of one bridge girder and two end beams. It travels along runway beam back and forth, driving the entire crane to move. The bridge girder also supports hosting and trolley mechanisms.
Hoisting mechanism is used for up and down lifting of heavy loads, usually mounted to the trolley. It consists of motor, brake, gear, drum, wire rope, coupling and hook. Trolley is a unit that is mounted on bridge girder and travels along bridge rails. They work together to move loads in two directions, that is up and down, left and right.
The control system is available in pendant control, wireless remote control and cabin control for you to choose from.
