Crane rail

Crane rail includes crane steel rail, track steel rail, square rail. At the top of the rail is convex, the bottom is the tablet which has a certain width, increase the contact area with the base; Cross section of the orbit for i-section, has a good bending strength.DpfHenan Dongqi Machinery Co., Ltd

The crane rail joint connection 

  • 1. Crane rail joint seam, general is 1 ~ 2 mm, installed in cold areas or when the temperature is lower than the perennial use temperature and differ in more than 20 ℃, temperature compensation gap should be considered, it is advisable to take 4 ~ 6 mm.
  • 2. Crane rail can be joint with straight head, also can be made into 45 ° Angle bevel joint, inclined joint can make the wheel in a smooth transition joint.
  • 3. Two rail lateral joint dislocation and height difference shall be less than 1 mm.
  • 4. Preparation before welding. Before the crane rail welding joint, carefully clean up the groove and the nearby oil contamination, rust, etc, until metallic luster.
  • 5. Welded rail connection sequence is from bottom up, after the first rail waist rail, rail head, one by one step by step a way for surfacing, around the last repair.
  • 6. The matters needing attention in the process of crane rail welding.

In each layer of welding when the wave, especially in the welds crane rail bottom of each layer of welding wave, should use one finish electrode welding, avoid or move between electrode and arc breaking, 2 layer before and after welding the welds should be the opposite direction of the wave; Each crane rail joint welding work shall be carried out continuously, in order to keep the end of the rail welding at high temperatures (300 ℃ ~ 350 ℃). After welding, when the eliminating stress before has not been cooling after heat treatment, must prevent the rain wet; Heat the copper plate can be removed with water cooling, in order to use the next time.DpfHenan Dongqi Machinery Co., Ltd

  • 7. Rail connection smooth processing

Crane rail welding joint is eliminating stress after heat treatment and cooling to the atmospheric temperature, the track on the surface of the top and sides of weld smooth processing. When welding bulge is too large, with a grinding wheel polishing machine polishing processing, until flush with rail head, finally will surface grinding. DpfHenan Dongqi Machinery Co., Ltd

Overhead crane rail installation for overhead crane

For overhead crane, the overhead crane rail are paved on supporting beam, which include steel beam and concrete beam.DpfHenan Dongqi Machinery Co., Ltd

According to overhead crane drawing, settle down the position, altitude. Before install overhead crane rail, firstly inspect groove, section, straight line, and warp of the crane rail, after qualified, pave the  overhead crane rail. And find out rail datum line.DpfHenan Dongqi Machinery Co., Ltd

Crane rail on supporting beam

If the overhead crane rail is paved on supporting beam, the overhead crane rail center distance and supporting beam center distance, their deviation should be within 10mm. and not bigger than beam half thickness.DpfHenan Dongqi Machinery Co., Ltd

Overhead crane rail is fixed on supporting beam, rail bottom should be sole laying on beam top. If there is space and long is more than 200mm, there should be padded, pad length is more than 100mm, width is 10—20mm wider than rail bottom. Each set of pad must not more than 3 layers. Pads are welded to supporting beam.DpfHenan Dongqi Machinery Co., Ltd
The deviation between cane rail center distance and installing datum line, should be not more than 5mm for general gantry crane.DpfHenan Dongqi Machinery Co., Ltd

If the crane span length is not more than 10m, rail center distance allow a deviation of ±3.0 mm.if crane span is more than 10m, rail center distance allow a deviation of ±15 mm. Following is formula:DpfHenan Dongqi Machinery Co., Ltd
△S=±[3+0.25(S-10)] : △S: crane span deviation(mm) S—rail center distance deviation(m)DpfHenan Dongqi Machinery Co., Ltd

The overhead crane rail connecting joint should be stagger, the staggered distance is not same as wheel gauge. And on joint, the supporting point should be at span’s 1/3~1/4. Crane rail i-beam flange weld bevel butt weld, web has same strength through welding butt weld, after welding, the welding surface is leveling. Artifacts correction for the inclination of the I beam flange delta < / 80 b, b is I beam flange width. Torsion of Angle steel, i-beam vector △h≤L/1000 or less, but shall not be bigger than 5 mm. Local buckling of steel plate rise within a certain range f≤1.5mm.DpfHenan Dongqi Machinery Co., Ltd

Some steel plate is out of shape, you can correct it by hammer. For some structural steel, there is special Jack to do gagging. If it is difficult, heat straightening is possible, but the heat temperature should be not more than 900°C.DpfHenan Dongqi Machinery Co., Ltd

Then make holes for bolts on end of crane rail used to connecting by clamps. You should make holes by mechanical not instead of gas cutting. Bolts can’t have crack, rag or nick.DpfHenan Dongqi Machinery Co., Ltd
At last, pave the crane rail and fix it on supporting beam with welding or bolts platens. The welding is inspected by ultrasonic, require I grade.DpfHenan Dongqi Machinery Co., Ltd

Crane rail on concrete beam

If overhead  crane rail is paved on concrete beam, firstly, there should be embedded steel plate on top of concrete beam. Crane rail is fixed on the embedded steel plate, which is similar as gantry crane rail foundation. Other work is same as above.DpfHenan Dongqi Machinery Co., Ltd

Gantry crane rail installation 

If the gantry cranes work in factory, storage or yard, usually the crane rail is sunken in a groove. For some big working space such as port / dock, crane rail is salient on ground. No matter what condition it is, there should be foundation under the gantry crane rail to make sure the ground can bearing the gantry cane and wheel Max. loading pressure.DpfHenan Dongqi Machinery Co., Ltd
