A Rubber Tyre Gantry Crane/RTG (crane), or sometimes a transtainer, is a mobile, wheeled, crane that operates on the ground or stacks intermodal containers. Due to the mobility of the rubber tyred gantry crane, a rubber tyred gantry crane can be moved to remote locations and used to load or unload intermodal containers from vessels. Unlike rail-mounted gantry cranes that have fixed tracks, the rubber tyred gantry crane is a type of mobile gantry crane that uses the rubber chassis for traveling, making the materials handling more flexible, efficient, and secure.
It could be a rubber tyred container gantry crane applied at your harbor, mobile boat elevator used in your vessel lifting operations or a heavy-duty mobile gantry crane for your construction projects. Rubber-tyred gantry cranes are stable, efficient, and easily maintained, with adequate safety instructions and overload-protection devices that ensure the safety of operators and equipment at its best. The RTG versatile cranes are able to operate in wide areas with flexibility, having characteristics such as a higher utilization rate for the space, higher performance, and full motor yards.
RTG cranes can increase utilization rate of the warehouse area, cover large lifting area, moving area. Not only walking through the loading dock, RTG cranes also can achieve flexible handling of machinery. RTG cranes are suited to spanning five-eight containers and lifting heights from over 3-to 1-over-6 containers. With rapid growth in global container shipping, shorter delivery cycles, Rubber-tyred gantry cranes (RTG cranes) and rail-mounted gantry cranes (RMG cranes) are used extensively at container yards, with higher-quality RTG cranes and RMG cranes being demanded more by users.
Due to the mobility of the rubber tyred gantry crane, a rubber tyred gantry crane can be moved to remote locations and used for loading or unloading containers from multimodal vessels. The versatile RTG cranes are flexible in operations over wide distances, with high utilization rates, high performance, and full yards of engines. RTG crane is applicable to spannings between five to eight containers wide, as well as lifting heights between over 3 to over 6 containers tall. With such a mobile design, this type of gantry crane can be used at multiple container yards within proximity of one another, without having to invest in conventional Gantry equipment for each yard.
Smart RTGs, featuring smart steel structures and operator booths, make it easier for your crane operators to operate the crane in a comfortable, productive manner. The mechanism for running a crane is basically composed of the driving devices, the set of wheels, a frame for the crane, and the safety devices.
