A TC/American Truss Crane may be the solution for an application that cannot be met with a multiple-runway crane or a special long span single girder crane. Truss cranes provide the ability to span up to and over 100 feet minimizing headroom. Each Truss Crane is custom designed by TC/American to the particular application.
A pair of parallel structural trusses with cross-members forms a rigid crane structure. Elevated within the trusses, and supported by the trusses, is a patented track bridge beam to support a hoist and carrier. Truss cranes may be designed with single or double bridge beams. Since the trusses carry the load, the bridge beam rail size can be minimized. In many cases the hoist high hook elevation is above the bottom chord of the trusses.
