How to Choose the Right Rail Clip to Improve the Crane Efficiency

The rail clip is a crane safety device that prevents outdoor cranes from sliding along the track under strong winds. Clamps attached to the crane’s bottom structure are usually used to clamp the two sides of the rail head to prevent sliding. Its working principle is to clamp both sides of the rail head through clamps and use the friction generated to organize the movement of the crane.

Gantry crane is a kind of equipment used for lifting and carrying heavy objects. It is widely used in construction sites, docks and other places. In the operation of the gantry crane, the rail clip plays an important role and can improve the efficiency of the gantry crane.

Because the windproof and anti-skid device is not installed or the device fails, the crane is blown away by strong winds, causing serious accidents such as sports cars, collisions, and rollovers. Rail clips and anti-climbers are both windproof and anti-skid safety devices for cranes. When the crane is in working condition, they can prevent sudden gusts of wind and play a windproof role. They can also work together with anchoring devices, windproof pull ropes, etc. It plays the role of automatic protection of safety and wind protection when the crane is not working.

When selecting a rail clip you need to consider the type of track it will be used for. Commonly used track types for gantry cranes include “T” track and “box” track. When selecting a rail clip, you need to ensure that the rail clip will perfectly match the track being used to ensure safe and efficient operation.

Consider the clamping capacity of the rail clamp. The clamping capacity of the rail clamp refers to the ability to clamp the rail, which is related to the lifting capacity of the gantry crane and the working environment. Generally speaking, the clamping capacity of the rail clamp should match the lifting capacity of the gantry crane to prevent the rail clip from failing to work properly due to insufficient clamping capacity.

The material of the rail clamp also needs to be considered. Rail clips are usually made of steel and should have sufficient strength and corrosion resistance. When choosing a rail clip, you should choose products with good materials and workmanship to ensure the durability and reliability of the rail clip.

Consider how the rail clamp operates. The operation method of the rail clamp should be simple and convenient. The operator does not need too much time and effort to complete the opening and closing operation of the rail clamp. Modern enterprises generally use hydraulic or electric rail clamps. These rail clips are easy to operate and highly efficient, and can safely improve the working efficiency of gantry cranes.

Consider the safety performance of the rail clip. Rail clips are tools used to clip rails, so their safety performance is crucial. Generally speaking, the rail clip should have a certain self-locking function to ensure that the rail clamp will not accidentally loosen or fall off during work, thereby ensuring work safety.

Choosing a suitable rail clip can improve the efficiency of the gantry crane. When selecting a rail clip, factors such as rail type, clamping capacity, material, operation method and safety performance need to be considered. Only by choosing the appropriate rail clamp can the gantry crane work more efficiently and improve production efficiency.
