Double Girder
Crab Hoist

The double rail crab adheres to standard track gauges of 1250, 1400, 1800, 2240 and 2800mm, which can suffice for Replacement of Existing Old Crabs.

Engineered to meet the FEM duty cycle, the end carriage is specifically designed to accommodate the standard wheel block with double-side mounting. Dual cross-travel drives are provided as a standard feature for the cross-travel movement of the trolley across R-Series crab hoist models. The modular construction and use of standard parts, such as wheel blocks, reduce the risk during assembly, ensuring a reliable and efficient system.
