The runway beam can be I-beam or H-beam as needed. There are a wide range of overhead cranes available in the market, and they can be designed in various types and with different configurations as users need, like ceiling mounted crane, top running crane, freestanding overhead crane, EOT crane, workshop overhead crane and so on.

Benefits and Advantages of Adopting Single Girder Underhung Crane
Single girder underhung crane, also known as single girder under running or under slung crane, is not a kind of heavy duty overhead crane, and its lifting capacity is always not greater than 10 ton. This kind of crane is designed for flexibility and functionality, the crane can be suspended from the building structure and doesn’t need supporting columns, and the single girder underslung crane system is generally lighter than that of the top running crane, which can result in lighter design requirements on the building or supporting structure for the crane.
Single girder under hung crane is also very adaptable for the manufacturing or producing processes that require lifting and moving materials along a fixed path. The crane can work very efficiently and improve productivity. This kind of crane is very cost effective compared with other kinds of overhead cranes.
Single girder underhung crane is very easy to install and operate, it has light dead weight and its design is generally very reasonable and compact. When a building doesn’t has enough headroom and it needs crane for the material lifting, under hung crane will be a good choice for it to facilitate the lifting work. The best crane type for your individual work needs is usually determined by the application and building or work place dimensions when the crane is to be used for the existing building rather than a new building.
