Category Gantries

Gantry cranes (and overhead cranes) are a type of crane which lift objects with the use of a hoist     which is fitted in a trolley and can move horizontally on a rail or pair of rails which are fitted under a beam. A gantry crane, also known as an overhead crane or a suspended crane, has the ends of the supporting beam resting on wheels running on rails at a high level, usually on the parallel side walls of a factory or similar large industrial building. This is so that the whole crane can move the along the whole length of the building while the hoist can be moved to and fro across the width of the building. Some stand alone cranes may have only a fixed gantry, particularly when they are lifting loads such as railway cargoes that are already easily moved beneath them.

Gantry cranes are particularly suited to lifting very heavy objects and huge gantry cranes have been used for shipbuilding where the crane straddles the ship allowing massive objects like the ships’ engines to be lifted and moved over the ship.

Gantry Cranes are commonly found in factory applications such as steel yards. The gantry crane works in a similar way to an overhead bridge crane, but has rails installed on the ground and instead has gantry-style legs to support the crane. Capacities range from 2 to 200 tons. Most are electrically powered and painted yellow.

Tube Bender CBC UNI70D Digital Twin Speed 

This floor mounted and versatile machine has a large material capacity: Mild Steel 60mmod x 2mm, Stainless Steel of 54mmod x 4mm and upto 2”nb Gas Pipe. Plus it can bend other more specialised materials such as CDS and T45. Contact us for advice.

You can also add the optional Mandrel attachment and convert this into a Mandrel bender to do as tight as 2D radii bends without tube deformation. Its capacity here is 2”od x 2mm Stainless Steel.

The digital display on the Tube Bender CBC UNI70D is for the inputting and control of the bending angle. And you have the ability to program up to 50 memories, each holding 9 different bend angles. This is ideal for multiple but different bends along the length of a piece of tube. When in operation the machine automatically jumps to the next angle for you, so all you need to do is adjust the material to its stop, clamp it up via the quick action device and hold the two buttons while the UNI accurately performs your bend. It also has an automatic return saving you time as you can be removing the bent tube and getting the next tube ready for installation.

The Tube Bender CBC UNI70D is a twin speed, digitally controlled, motorised Tube, Pipe, Square and Bar bending machine. This machine is made to order.

A maximum bend angle of 200˚.

A Quick Action Guide/Roller Positioning device is included as standard.

Standard bending radii is 3D & 4D.

415v three phase.

Packed in a protective wooden transport case.
