Paraguay EPS Sandwich Panel Factory Crane project Case Study
Overhead Cranes also named Bridge Cranes or Electrical Overhead Traveling (EOT) Cranes is kind of industrial lifting equipment, which is widely used in various industrial applications for material handling to improve working efficiency and safety. According to the material handling purpose and structure, the overhead crane can mainly be classified into the following type, Low Headroom Single Girder Overhead Crane QDY Ladle Overhead Crane, Single Girder Suspension overhead Crane, Double Girder electric hoist Crane, Explosion Proof Bridge Crane, Explosion-proof Single Girder Overhead Crane, Electromagnetic Overhead Crane, Single Girder Electric Hoist Crane up, Overhead Crane With Hook, Grab Bucket Overhead Crane, Insulation Overhead Crane and Double Trolley Overhead Crane, etc.
Among the various overhead cranes, how to choose the optimal one for your applications? It depends on your factory conditions and material handling requirements. What if your working area is limited, you need relatively larger working space for material handling? How to solve the trouble? Now let’s see how DQCRANES solves the problem and see the Paraguay EPS sandwich panel factory crane project case study.
The Paraguay client is a manufacturer of thermal sandwich panels. They have several thermal sandwich panel production lines, which has certain influence in their local market.
Thermal sandwich panels from the Paraguay client Of DQCRANES
During the sandwich panel production, they need to move coils of steel sheet for stocking and for placing them in a continuous production line for EPS sandwich panel. Here comes the question: The factory has been built up within the wall with the height around 1.2 m which limits the working area of material handling. In order make the most of the working space, the client requires that the bucket should be set up closely against the wall. How to realize these requirements? See our solution diagram below:

Based on the working conditions and lifting requirements, DQCRANES recommended the Paraguay client the 10 ton single girder overhead crane, with a special designed bucket, at the corners the foundations of which are narrowed down to 1/4 of the normal size and special materials and additional bolts are used to ensure the stability and safety (Seen the designing drawing above).
The bucket and bolts for the single girder overhead crane
The single girder overhead crane can help the client to lift and move the coil of steel plates and the specially designed foundation can largely save space for the crane. At same time, the safety and stability of the overhead crane is guaranteed. The lifting requirements of the client are perfectly satisfied.

After the confirming of the crane drawing, everything went well with the crane production, packaging and delivery and installation.
DQCRANES suggest customer choose the open top container due to irregular shape, since it’s easy for loading and unloading, and it is safe as well.
Delivery of the overhead crane
DQCRANES provide detailed installation instruction, including mechanism and electric, it’s easy for customer if they choose to install it by themselves. We can also provide installation guide by phone or email or other communication tools if customer request.

As for the crane project, the features of the material handling solutions are：
1)10 ton single girder overhead crane can fully meet the material handling requirement of the coils of steel plates which is cost effective.
2) The special designed crane bucket and foundation can largely save the working space which on the other hand improves the cost-effectiveness of the single girder overhead crane.
3) The safety and stability of the crane is guaranteed with low cost.
DQCRANES is always dedicated to provide optimal material handling solution for clients around world. No matter what kind of conditions you have and what kind of problem confronted, DQCRANES will find the most ideal one for you. DQCRANES is here to lift you up!
