    • OVERHEAD & GANTRY CRANES

        • Single girder standard - overhead travelling cranes

        • The ADC single girder overhead travelling cranes are adapted for a wide range of daily usage in plants and workshops to ease material flow.

          These overhead travelling cranes are built for your lifting needs up to 12.5t and up to 30 meters span, and can be installed in new or existing buildings.

          Our single girder overhead travelling cranes are built either with rolled section or welded box sections depending on load and span. Girders are made on automatic welding bench in our plant.

          The highly important connection between girder and end-carriage deserves a special attention to avoid long term wear and is accurately prepared on assembly bench.

          Our single girder overhead traveling cranes are equipped with low headroom wire rope hoist and enable a maximum lifting height. The ADC wire rope hoists, also designed and manufactured in Parthenay, this makes ADC the only French manufacturer of complete overhead travelling cranes.

        • ADC underslung cranes

        • For complex buildings with limited space or low headroom, ADC offers a range of standard underslung crane. It runs on the runway beam directly mounted under the ceiling which is adaptable to buildings with underslung runway beams.

          The underslung cranes ADC maximize the available space in buildings by reducing the clearance between hook and walls. This type of crane can be designed to allow combinations with other cranes in nearby halls so as to transfer hoists and loads between cranes and workshops.

          Our range of standard underslung cranes allows to obtain a maximum lifting height under hook (with our range of low headroom wire rope hoist). The range extends up to 10 tons of lifting capacity and up to 18 meters span.

          The range is adapted for chain hoist for small loads up to 3.2 tons and for rope hoist for higher lifting capacity.

          ADC underslung cranes are built with standardized parts, this allows you to make the maintenance of your equipment at an economical price.

          Our girders are built either with rolled section or welded box sections depending on load and span. Girders are made on automatic welding bench in our plant.
