How to Operate Rail Mounted Gantry Crane
The AQ-RMG crane is fully electric gantry crane typically designed with three operation methods. It can be operated either from a cab mounted on the gantry crane or on the ground by way of pendant control or wireless remote control. Before buying a gantry crane, you should discuss with the crane manufacturer on the control systems.
The pendant control uses a hand-wired button box to operate the gantry crane, which is more suitable to lift small loads. This control system allows operator to get close to the lifting objects, which may also cause accidents and endanger people’s lives.
The wireless remote control is widely adopted in many cranes as it is a more secure operation method. It allows the operator to choose the best position so as to have a wide field of vision and avoid dangerous areas. Besides, the wireless remote control has low cost and minimal maintenance, so it is a popular choice among crane users.
The cabin control is usually adopted in heavy duty gantry crane to handle large and heavy workloads. The crane operators should receive professional training on the crane knowledge and safety operation regulations. Sometimes, they should co-work with staff on the ground to complete the lifting tasks.
The above operation methods can be selected according your specific needs. During the gantry crane operation, operators should never be lax or careless in case the accidents or even fatal accidents occur. Besides, some safety devices can be installed on the gantry cranes to ensure a safe operation such as limit switches, overload limit and anti-collision device.
