Industrial Cranes

Overhead gantries

The Electric Overhead Gantry Crane is the most widely used factory crane in the world, especially for manufacturing and maintenance. They provide close to 100% coverage of factory floors and work well in conjunction with production lines. Gantry cranes can be installed during the construction process or also into an existing structure by a number of methods.

Working with our German partners, SWF Krantechnik, we supply cranes with high-quality components which are tested to the highest standards of German and European engineering.

Cranes supplied by Irish Crane & Lifting are fabricated in our Killarney workshop and fitted with SWF crane components, they are then transported, erected and fully tested and certified on-site to exacting standards.

Any repairs or spare parts required are recorded and quoted for prior to being carried out and new certificate issued after completion

Jib Cranes

jib craneA widely used crane for maximising the efficiency of factory workstations. Jib cranes can be free-standing and wall-mounted. They use low profile jibs to allow for higher load dynamics and have a high range of capacities. Jib crane components are supplied by SWF Krantechnik and assembled at Irish Crane and Lifting prior to delivery to ensure functionality. These cranes can be fully manual or fully electric with an electric hoist, trolley and slew. Customers can request the supply of kits only which are supplied with assembly instructions, so the customer can manufacture the crane themselves if they have the capabilities.

SWF, Athlo Chain Hoist

The ATHLO chain series is our next generation of electric chain hoists for loads up to 5 t. At the launch of the new series, we are offering this model for loads up to 1,000 kg with further options to follow in the months to come.

High security, performance and usability along with easy maintenance and a long service life were all important factors driving its development. The modern design features a newly constructed interior with all-new mechanical components. ATHLO chain can be used in environments with temperatures ranging from -20 to +50 degrees Celsius.

Wire Rope Hoists

Wire Rope Hoists

The NOVA wire rope hoist is produced by SWF Krantechnik and is the hoist of choice for our overhead cranes. More expensive than Chain Hoists they are used when either heavier lifting capacity, faster hoisting speeds or higher durability is required. NOVA solutions are of particular interest to operators that need short approach dimensions and low headrooms. Please see key techncal data below and downloadable PDFs with dimensions etc below.

This image shows the compact NOVA L single-girder trolley which offers optimal installation and approach dimensions and easily accessible electrical and wearing parts.

The electric wire rope hoist has a modular design without any welded parts. Amongst other advantages, it ensures optimal motor cooling even at extremely high power.

Key technical data

  • Capacities up to 80,000 Kg
  • Lifting motors up to 56 kW with two speeds (6/1) or HoistMaster2 frequency inverters
  • 4-step geared limit switch
  • Overload protection
  • Overheating protection for the lifting motors
  • Trolley drives with MicroMove frequency inverter control
  • Electronic hoist monitoring system NovaMaster as option
  • IP55 protection for motors and electrical cubicle
  • Motor insulation class F
  • Load hook with hook safety latch
