Crane Authority offers a wide variety of bridge crane and overhead crane systems. With the expertise to engineer and design, Crane Authority is capable of providing most any custom-built bridge crane system to accommodate a variety of applications.


We offer both top running and underhung bridge crane and runway systems. All systems are available with manual, hand geared, or motorized bridge movement.


Bridge cranes and runways are manufactured with steel I beams or wide flange beams for increased structural rigidity and life-span. Crane end trucks are fabricated from structural steel channels or plates welded into a rigid frame. Top running wheels are forged steel. Drive wheels are tapered tread. Under running wheels are forged steel and have a crowned or flat tread for operation on standard S beam, wide flange beam, or patented track.


Rated loads from 1/4 to 30 ton with span/runway lengths up to 100+ feet.

There are two basic configurations of overhead cranes or bridge cranes:


The EOT (electric overhead crane) is the most common type of bridge (overhead) crane. These cranes are operated using a crane control pendant, a radio remote pendant or from an operator cabin that is attached to the crane itself.


The rotary bridge (overhead) crane has one end of the bridge mounted on a fixed pivot and the other end carried on an annular track. The bridge traverses the circular area beneath.


Savings from not renting mobile cranes often offset the cost of a bridge crane.


There are hundreds of types of bridge cranes, work station cranes and components, not all of them are listed here in our online crane store.  Most projects involving cranes requires expert advice and guidance.  We understand that selecting the right crane can be a critical and costly decision for any manufacturer or company in need of a bridge crane configuration.  We want to help you make the best decision for your workstation bridge crane needs.
