Hot Crane 1 1

HOT Crane

The Hand Operated Travelling Crane is an excellent economical choice for maintenance duty where motion is manually driven. The mechanism runs with the help of a closed loop chain suspended from a hand chain wheel.

Single girder or under slung, these cranes are smaller in span and cater up to 10T capacity. Our product is also available in a Semi variant where one of the two motions can be electric and the other manual. Circular variants are also available.

All our HOT cranes comply with International FEM, ISO and IS standards.

A complete HOT crane consists of – 

  • 1 Girder
  • 2 End Carriage Assemblies
  • 1 Chain Pulley Block with Geared Trolley
  • 1 LT Manual Drive Assembly


  • Fully manual function means no electrical requirements.
  • Safest crane available for hazardous conditions and application
  • Negligible probability of breakdown.
  • Reduction gearbox for LT assembly ensures lesser operating effort.
  • Zero constraint on height of lift.


  • SWL Range varies from 1T to 10T with a maximum span of 12 meters.
  • The LT Drive Assembly is connected using common shafts supported by pillow blocks at intervals.
  • Open spur gears on the wheels connect to the pinion mounted on the drive shaft.
  • HTB/Bronze lining on the travel wheels and bronze-coated hook, hand chain makes the HOT crane flame-proof.


  • Tight alignment allows for lesser operating effort for each motion.
  • Less dead weight of the crane ensures low wheel load.
  • No Down Shop Lead (DSL) required throughout the bay length.
  • The best hook approaches either end and allows for the best end to approach.
