In order for bridge cranes to move precisely and quickly than require low-friction end trucks. G-Rail™ bridge cranes offer rigid end trucks, rather than articulating end trucks, to prevent the overhead crane from skewing off the runways. Due to the low-friction rigid end truck G-Rail™ bridges move along evenly decreasing the 'pendulum effect'.
We machine all our end trucks from aluminum rather than welding them. By using aluminum we are able to create a more accurate and square-fit for all our end trucks which dismisses the possibility for binding. At Givens Lifting Systems, we make sure that your end truck guide wheels are perfectly fitted to the overhead crane in order to reduce friction.
