Crane systems

With CTI crane systems, even the most complex material handling tasks can be solved in a cost efficient solution

The optimum material flow in production units is a decisive factor in efficient production processes. In many cases, automatic cranes are the best transportation means for different material handling requirements.


CTI Systems provides various types of cranes including:

All cranes provide custom-made solutions that assist in any specific task and are specifically designed for:

  • Heavy loads
  • Most sensitive and/or
  • Bulky goods

With the correct locking devices, the hoist trolleys can also be moved onto monorail spur systems or other crane bridges.

Loads of up to 65 tons can be transported efficiently and reliable. Bridge travelling speeds up to 180 m/min, trolley travelling speeds up to 80 m/min and lifting speeds up to 65 m/min.

All degrees of automation from manual operation through step control to fully automatic operation can be achieved.

At CTI Systems, grab and load suspension systems are tailored to precisely meet the individual application and the material to be transported.


The systems allow very long distances to be spanned via an arrangement of multiple runway beams that work in parallel.

The hoist trolleys will run underslung in the flange of the runway beams. From there, working in conjunction with the CTI interlocks, the trolleys can pass to the crane bridge in the adjacent track or cross over to a monorail system.

The systems can be designed either as single or double girder bridges. The latter can also carry CTI teleplatform trolleys (elevated working platforms) to provide worker access to elevated working areas. back to top


Equipped with interlocking devices, the operation of hoist trolleys is not simply limited to either single or double girder crane bridges. In addition, they can be used on the CTI designed monorail tracks, which are in turn controlled by state of the art technology.

Furthermore, required handling tasks can be executed in manual, stepcontrolled or fully automated mode. back to top


The travelling cranes running on top of fixed runway beams deliver advantages for heavy duty operations. The bridges running on tracks with spans of up to approximately 30 m are able to carry loads of 65 tons and more, without the need to be suspended from the roof structures. back to top


Automatic cranes - also known as “Process cranes” can be designed from any of the earlier design performances. However, these are designated to be fully implemented in production processes as an integral module. Usually equipped with a custom-made grab system, interlocking and further indexing units, they are mostly applied to handling of materials in various manufacturing processes. Operated by PLC they will be controlled in accordance with requirements of individual production phases. back to top
