Lifting Solutions for Precast Yard

Lifting equipment are commonly used in precast yards for handling precast concrete elements such as beams, columns, slabs, and panels. Precast yards are facilities where concrete elements are manufactured off-site and then transported to construction sites for assembly. To suit different materials handling needs within the yard, we provide various cost-effective lifting solutions.

Material Handling Solutions for Precast Yard

Using lifting equipment in precast yards not only enhances efficiency and productivity but also prioritizes the safety of workers and the integrity of the precast elements throughout the production process. To meet various work requirements, Aicrane offers a wide range of lifting solutions used in precast yards to transport heavy elements from one position to another.

Gantry Crane for Precast Yard

Gantry cranes are designed to lift and transport precast concrete elements such as beams, columns, panels, and slabs within the yard. They are equipped with hoists and lifting attachments such as hooks, spreader bars, or magnets to accommodate different types of precast elements. Both single girder and double girder gantry cranes are widely used in the yard to stack and store precast elements, load and unload precast elements for transportation to construction sites.

Gantry cranes can be customized to meet the specific requirements of different precast yard layouts and production processes. They can span large areas of the yard, operate at various heights, and handle a wide range of load capacities, making them versatile and adaptable to changing needs.

Rubber Tyred Gantry Crane Used in Precast Yard

Rubber tyred gantry cranes are essential equipment in precast yards, helping to streamline operations, optimize storage space, and ensure the efficient handling of precast concrete elements from production to transportation. Check to know how rtg rubber tired gantry cranes are utilized in a precast yard:

  • Handling Precast Elements: Rubber tyred gantry cranes are equipped with powerful lifting mechanisms and are capable of moving heavy precast components around the yard. These elements are often stored in designated areas within the yard and need to be transported to loading docks for shipping or assembly areas for further processing.
  • Stacking and Storage: Rubber tire gantry cranes are used to stack precast elements vertically to optimize space within the yard. They can lift and position elements onto storage racks or directly onto the ground, depending on the layout and storage requirements of the yard.
  • Transportation within the Yard: Rubber gantry cranes are designed to operate on rubber tires, allowing them to move easily within the yard without the need for fixed rails or tracks. This flexibility enables them to access different areas of the yard and transport precast elements efficiently.
  • Loading and Unloading: Rubber tyred cranes are often stationed near loading docks where precast elements are loaded onto trucks or shipping containers for transportation to construction sites. They play a critical role in the loading and unloading process, ensuring efficient handling and transfer of precast elements.
  • Safety and Precision: RTG rubber gantry cranes are equipped with advanced control systems and safety features to ensure precise positioning and safe operation within the precast yard. Operators can control the crane’s movements remotely, allowing for precise placement of precast elements while maintaining safety protocols.

Straddle Carrier Crane for Precast Yard

A straddle carrier crane is a type of heavy lifting equipment commonly used in precast yards for handling large and heavy precast concrete elements. Similar to rubber gantry cranes, the straddle cranes have high flexiblity and versatility in heavy items handling, they can move freely within the yard and transport precaset items to different areas of the yard.

Aicrane provides different straddle carrier crane solutions to suit different work needs, including single beam and double beam straddle carriers. Two straddle carriers can also work together to transport large-sized and heavy precast elements like bridge beams from one work cell to another as required.
