overhead traveling crane

Definition

Construction

  • A lifting machine generally power-operated at least in its hoisting operation. The crane is carried on a horizontal girder, reaching between rails above window level at each side of a shop, and consists of a hoisting cab that can travel from end to end on the girder. The whole area between the rails can thus be traversed by the cab.
