Ladle overhead crane is one type of metallurgy crane, which is designed for transporting, pouring and charging hot metal in the process of smelting liquid metal, etc. Also called casting overhead/bridge crane or foundry overhead/bridge crane.

According to the crane structure, the ladle overhead cranes can be classified into double girder double rail overhead travelling ladle cranes, four girder four rail overhead travelling ladle cranes, and four girder six rails overhead travelling ladle cranes. The front two types are used for lifting middle and large scale ladles, and the latter one is used for extremely large scale ladles. Kinocranes know the hazard and challenge of metals production industry and can offer customized ladle overhead crane as per client’s requirements.

Because of the high risk of ladle crane, its design has special safety characteristics to ensure the efficiency and safety of the crane system. The features of ladle cranes are as follows:

  • High Working Class: A7-A8 (FEM 4m-5m) for 7×24 hours continuous working
  • Cable: Heat resistance silicon rubber insulated cable
  • Heat Radiation Protection: insulation layer is added at the bottom of the main girder.
  • Control cabin: Closed type, window uses tempered glass and sliding type to protection
  • Steel material: High yield strength Q345B steel plate welded as the main structure
  • Centralized lubricating system: Reduce maintenance workload, spreading on long travelling, main trolley and aux trolley mechanism.
