Crane / Hoist

Crane hoists are machines that are able to lift and carry heavy objects and move them to another location. They typically achieve this by using a drum or lift wheel that has either a rope or chain wrapped around it. There are many different types available that may be operated either manually, electronically, or pneumatically. There are basically two unique things that distinguish a hoisting crane from the many other types of lifting machines out there: the lifting medium and the type of power used. They use either wire, rope, or chains to lift and their power source is either an electric engine or an air motor.

Cranes in buildings

Pragati pre-engineered buildings can be designed to accept most types of crane systems such as EOT, Monorail, Under-hung cranes and other load carrying devices like conveyors etc. in both clear span and multi-span buildings. When a crane system is to be integrated, Pragati scope is limited to brackets and crane run-way beams which support the crane system. Complete information of the crane system is required in order to design and estimate building with cranes.

Mezzanines in buildings

Intermediate mezzanine floors (multi storey) are possible in metal buildings. Mezzanine floors can be provided in complete or partial area in pre-engineered buildings to suit loading requirements for office and storage. A mezzanine floor consists of steel decks, supported by joists framed to the mezzanine beams. Main mezzanine beams normally run across the width of the building and are located under the main rafters while joists run parallel to the length of the building. The top flange of the joists fit immediately below the top flange of the mezzanine beam.

Logistics and delivery

Pragati has its trained and dedicated logistic partners. They are carefully selected based on their overall capabilities which include vehicle fleet and support network quality of trailers and transport vehicles is checked prior to every dispatch to ensure timely delivery with minimum transit time. Customers are updated with the tracking of vehicles in transit through daily e-mails and sms. This is facilitated by a regular interaction of tracking office and the vehicle drivers over the mobile phone. Delivery of materials in good condition is also ensured by the use of certain quality parameters at the time of unloading.

What is a Trolley

The trolley is the mechanism that moves the hoist along the bridge girder of a crane. The hoist is moved horizontally along the top or underside of the bridge girder to position it above a load (Figure 1, Motion 2). There are three types of trolleys: low headroom, normal headroom and double girder trolley.
