In order to ensure safe loading/unloading of Foshan dock containers, China Docks in association with Guangdong Youway Crane Co., Ltd has designed and launched a sturdy and efficient loading and unloading container bridge crane in the month of January in 2016.
Talking about their latest container bridge crane, a spokesperson at China dock shared, “The exiting workflow required both the GQ 40T cranes as well as JMQ 40t cranes to function together. But the containers used to crash at the time of being stacked, they caused damage to them and slowed down the entire process, which is why we resolved to create an efficient workflow system for the purpose of loading and unloading.”
It must be noted that the dock, which is situated in the inland river of South China, operates on a medium scale. Ships with a containing area of 275m2 and 25m long on an average basis carry 6-8 ties on three to four rows of containers. The fresh berth has been installed on a 30m shoreline and a bridge crane system with cantilever capable of working beyond river has been created to help workers better handle the containers. The bridge crane’s spreaders have been designed to deliver maximum efficiency.
The whole mechanism has been designed to offer better control through frequency control systems. The bridge moves at 82m per min; trolley moves at 40m per min, the hoist moves at 25m per min with empty container and at 17m per min when rated loading. The modern Port Machinery installed on the machine cancels any frequency jamming thus allowing the machine to work at higher efficiency. As a result, it is now working at A6 level. The crane comes with two-in-one set of hydraulically powered spreaders each at 20 and 40 feet specification. Additionally, switching between the two spreaders has been simplified and cameras have been mounted on the trolley, which enables the crane driver to better control the machine. The advanced electronic system of the machine makes it more reliable and effective. Due to its design and efficiency, the bridge crane is now capable of tackling more containers in comparison to other workflow systems. With loading speed at 25 containers per hour, the crane stacks more containers within a specified time frame.
