Container handling

Rail Mounted Gantry

Discover our

Rail-mounted gantry (RMG) container cranes are specialized cranes designed for efficient handling and stacking of shipping containers at ports, intermodal terminals, and rail yards. These cranes play a vital role in modern global trade by enabling the swift and seamless transfer of goods between ships, trucks, and trains.

The trolley is typically mounted on rails that run along the boom of a container crane, allowing it to move horizontally. It is equipped with a spreader, which is an adjustable frame that can be raised, lowered, and rotated to securely grasp and release the containers. Our trolleys can also equipped with advanced features like automated control systems, collision detection, and remote monitoring capabilities. This helps safety, efficiency, and overall operational performance.

Core of lifting

The core of lifting container cranes consists of several essential components that work together to facilitate the efficient and safe movement of shipping containers.Components that work together are:
• Trolley
• Spreader
• Boom
• Gantry
• Operator’s cabin
• Safety features

Active load control

Active load control utilizes advanced sensors, actuators, and algorithms to actively monitor and manage the motion of containers during the lifting and transportation process. The systems address these issues by continuously adjusting the movement of the crane and its components to minimize unwanted motion.Key features include:
• Anti-sway systems
• Positioning assistance
• Energy optimization
• Safety improvements

Bogies are the wheeled structures that support the container crane's weight and facilitate its movement along the rails. The primary purpose of a bogie is to distribute the weight of the crane and its load evenly across the wheels. This helps prevent damage to the rails and ensures the stability of the crane during operation.

Container crane cabins are the control centers for the operators who manage the movement and placement of shipping containers at ports and terminals. We gives a lot of attention to the design of container crane cabins focuses on providing a comfortable and safe working environment for the operators.  Some key features include:
• Ergonomic design
• Visibility
• Climate control
• Noise reduction
• Safety features
• Communication equipment

The best assets for the job

Lagendijk RMG cranes can be tailored made to meet the specific needs of a terminal, with options for varying heights, spans, and lifting capacities. This flexibility allows port operators to optimize their equipment for maximum efficiency and throughput. Our cranes are equipped with various safety features, such as anti-collision systems, overload protection, and emergency stop functions. These measures help protect both the operators and the valuable cargo being handled. We could also implement remote operation or even develop fully autonomous RMG cranes to connect with on going future demands.

Environmentally friendly: most of our RMG cranes are powered by electricity, reducing noise pollution and emissions compared to traditional diesel-powered equipment. Some models even feature regenerative braking systems, which capture and reuse energy generated during the lowering of containers.

In summary, rail-mounted gantry container cranes play a crucial role in facilitating global trade by streamlining the transfer of goods at ports and intermodal terminals. Their efficiency, precision, and environmentally friendly design make them an indispensable tool for modern logistics operations.
