American Crane is thrilled to announce the installation of one of our innovative Underhung Crane Systems for Boeing in North Charleston, South Carolina. Calling on 40 years of experience, our entire team was able to design, manufacture, and install the 80-ton capacity custom Underhung Crane System. The system, whose runway alone boasts 3.6 million pounds of steel, includes a number of unique custom features that make it a landmark in our history of innovation:
- A complex yet easy-to-operate control system with infinite position possibilities that allows for the lifting of a wide variety of objects
- 14 bridges and 3 trolley carriers; with carrier ability to rotate +/- 180 degrees
- The operator chair is located in the carrier and comes with a large color touch screen that allows real-time information gathering.
- The system includes 1,216 bridge wheels and over 6 miles of flexible cables
To say that we are proud of Boeing’s new crane is a ridiculous understatement. It was truly a great combination of form and function, which we know, will give Boeing outstanding and consistent service for many years to come.
