 Small Gantry Crane was designed for workshops, production departments. This gantry crane A shape works with electric and manual chain hoists, e.g. Demag, Abus, Planet and other.

Steel frame made of S355JR construction steel, welded and painted. Maximym load capacity (in the middle) – 500kg. IPB 200 bar can work with all manual, electrical chain hoits and winches.

For heavier applications, we designed a gantry crane with a lifting capacity up to 10 tons:  Gantry Crane design – DIY Gantry Crane 10 tons

  This professional project with complete of executive parts, purchasing parts, BOM lists will alow you to build your own gantry crane. Design includes complete working documentation in technical 2D drawings, DWG and PDF formats. DIY hydraulic lift with our CAD plans, or change it freely and create homemade gantry crane.

Set of light gantry crane drawings includes:
– Drawings with complete descriptions related with the technologies of production.

– BOM list with materials, producers, spare parts, parts and drawings numerations.
Downloaded 2D CAD documentation allow to produce own working copy of gantry crane. In the parts shopping lists are given: dimensions, sizes, manufacturers and their codes.


Review this project and consider integrating the Lifting Gantry Crane with the Small Workshop Crane CAD project or 500 kg Table Scissor Hydraulic Lifter !                         Unless you have an appetite for an engineering project of a larger Gantry Crane, if so, take a look at the project with complete 2D documentation and 3D models – 10 Ton Gantry Crane
