A gantry crane is a type of overhead crane with a single or double girder configuration supported by freestanding legs that move on wheels or along a track or rail system. Gantry cranes are usually considered when there is a reason not to incorporate an overhead runway system.
These are typically used for an outdoor application or below an existing overhead bridge crane system. Unlike a bridge crane, a gantry crane does not need to be tied into a building’s support structure—eliminating the need for permanent runway beams and support columns. In some cases, this can result in a significant reduction in material costs and can be a more cost-effective solution compared to a similarly specified bridge crane.They are also called portal cranes, the “portal” being the empty space straddled by the gantry.
Goliath/Gantry cranes basic purpose is to provide the solution to the shed/structures which are unable to take load of the EOT crane. The goliath/gantry crane moves on the rail supported on floor level instead of rail placed on the elevated level. This eliminates the need for workshop building and hence reduction in capital cost. Goliath crane find major application in outdoor location. However,the goliath cranes can also be installed inside a closed building
