The overhead crane is mainly used for the moving of loads in heavy-industry and other industrial sectors. It is made out of a crane bridge that carries a travelling trolley. This travels across the crane bridge using steel wheels. The crane bridge moves along parallel tracks. This means it is possible for every area that lies under the crane’s tracks to be reached. The movement of the crane bridge is also determined by the construction of the tracks. These are mainly located on the outer walls of the hall.

The travelling trolley is similar to a small carriage, which allows for the diagonal movement of the crane. A strong steel rope on a roller has, among other things, a crane hook. Loads can be hung on this crane hook and transported. The overhead crane can also be used for outdoor work. There are travelling bridges, over which the contents of a train carriage can be loaded onto lorries. Overhead trains are often used in the steel warehouse of a plant. The overhead crane is steered from the ground using a control panel or via remote control. It is also common to have an operator’s cabin that moves along with the trolley.
