Characteristics of cranes 

Overhead cranes are a type of lifting and transport equipment that operate in intermittent motion. An overhead crane is made up of a load-bearing section (known as a bridge) that moves along tracks and a hoist or winch that travels across the bridge carrying loads either vertically or horizontally.  

Overhead cranes are mainly used in the construction and industrial sectors. They are machines that enable efficient and effective close transportation within a construction site or industrial plant. The scope of the hoist or winch means that the space for handling loads is limited.  

Overhead cranes are equipment that require regular inspection and, if necessary, repair and maintenance. It is worth noting the need to carry out electrical tests and measurements and to draw up the protocols required by the Office of Technical Inspection. It is also worth constantly monitoring the level of wear and tear on the machine and its mechanisms.
