The Running Track of the Gantry Crane is the Key Factor to Ensure the Normal Operation of the Gantry Crane

The running track of the gantry crane is an important part of supporting and guiding the movement of the gantry crane. It undertakes the task of carrying and transmitting the load of the gantry crane, and affects the stability and safety of the equipment.


Features and classification:

The running track of the gantry crane is generally made of steel, which has high strength and rigidity and can bear large loads. According to different structural forms and uses, the gantry crane running track can be divided into two types: suspension type and ground type. The suspended running track is usually fixed on the roof beams of factories or warehouses, which can maximize the use of space; while the ground running track is fixed on the ground, which is suitable for outdoor sites and construction sites that need to be used for a long time. According to actual needs, it is very important to choose the appropriate type of running track.

Material selection:

The material selected for the running track should have the characteristics of high strength, corrosion resistance and wear resistance. Common running track materials include Q235B, Q345B and other high-quality steel and railway tracks. According to the working environment and load requirements, reinforced rails or special material running rails can also be used to provide better support and durability.


Installation and maintenance:

When installing the running track, the layout and positioning should be carried out according to the design requirements and the actual situation on site. Make sure the running track is flat, level and able to withstand the expected load. During the installation process, attention should be paid to the fastening and fixing of the connecting bolts to ensure the stability of the running track. In addition, it is necessary to regularly inspect and maintain the running track, check whether the track is deformed, cracked, corroded, etc., and deal with the problem in time.

Lubrication and cleaning:

In order to keep the running track of the gantry crane in good condition, regular lubrication and cleaning are necessary. Choose suitable lubricating oil or grease to lubricate the rolling wheels and guide wheels on the running track to reduce friction and wear. At the same time, regularly remove sundries and dust on the track to ensure the smoothness of the track surface and improve the driving effect of the gantry crane.


Security management:

As an important part of the gantry crane, the running track needs to be paid attention to its safety. During use, relevant operating procedures and safety operating guidelines should be followed. Check whether the running track and connecting parts are firm and reliable, and whether the gantry crane is running smoothly and without abnormalities. Regularly maintain and overhaul the running track, and deal with the problems found in time to ensure the safe operation of the equipment.


In short, the running track of the gantry crane is the key factor to ensure the normal operation of the gantry crane. Correct selection of suitable materials, scientific layout and installation, regular maintenance and attention to safety management are all to ensure the running track.


In order to reduce the impact of the track on the gantry crane, the following measures can be taken:

First of all, check the installation condition and flatness of the track, make sure the installation of the track meets the standard, and make necessary adjustments.

Secondly, regularly check the state of the track, find problems and repair them in time to avoid track errors caused by track wear or distortion.

Finally, the operator needs to check whether the track is flat before using the gantry crane to ensure the safety and efficiency of the gantry crane during operation.


To sum up, the track error is a problem that needs to be paid attention to during the operation of the gantry crane, and it will have a negative impact on the operating efficiency and safety of the gantry crane. Correct prevention and treatment methods can greatly reduce the impact of track errors and improve the operating efficiency and safety of gantry cranes.
