Crane Kits

Podem’s engineers invest a great amount of time and resources in designing crane kits to make them easy to repair and fast to ship.

Unlike other manufacturers, many of the company’s components can be combined and customized to meet specific customer requests. That is why Podems crane kits range is quite extensive.


About Podem’s Crane Kits

Crane kit components can be individually engineered to suit different requirements. Podem’s products and components are designed, engineered and manufactured in Europe, comply with European standards and bear the CE mark.

Podem follows the latest innovations in the field of crane building, using 60+ years of experience and know-how from worldwide partners.


Gantry Crane Kits 

A gantry crane is an overhead crane with a single or double girder configuration supported by freestanding legs that move on wheels or along a track or a rail system. It is used mainly in outdoor environments and whenever there is no existing construction for a bridge crane to be installed.

Podem offers wire rope hoists, open barrel winches, and accessories suitable for installation on single and double girder gantry cranes that will operate reliably at -20°C as well as at +50°C outside temperature.

Overhead Bridge Crane Kits 

An overhead crane kit (or bridge crane) is one of the most important mechanisms in any modern manufacturing facility.

Like the gantry crane, it can be a single-girder or double-girder configuration. The difference is that it is installed on parallel runways along the length of the building.

Podem offers standard and custom overhead crane kits to make the assembly as effortless as possible. The company manufactures top, side, underslung and custom connection types of end carriages (also called end trucks).

With their various suspensions for main girder travel, the wire rope hoists become the “heart” of the manufacturing process. Podem offers additional components and accessories to complete any crane system.


Compliant and Certified

Podem works compliant with the latest EN requirements and standards. The company also certifies its products to comply with the legal requirements of some countries.


Engineering Excellence

For over 60 years, Podem’s engineers have proved their expertise in designing reliable and long-lasting lifting equipment.

They invest all of their time and skills to make sure the end product will meet the individual needs of any customer and serve them for decades in different environmental conditions.


Standard and Custom Solutions

Podem’s standard wire rope hoist range covers over 90% of the market demands. The standard capacities are up to 50 t, but using the “twin hoists” solution could reach 100 t.

The company is also one of the few manufacturers that offers custom modifications to their standard line of lifting equipment. This is possible thanks to the large integrated hoist manufacturing facility, one of few in Europe.

Podem offers a wide range of components for new cranes and for modernizing existing crane systems – both standard and custom-built.


Diverse Product Range

Podem’s components are diverse and can be used in many custom designs.

The integrated manufacturing process also provides the means to make custom components and assemblies. That provides flexibility in making different modifications regarding duty rating, spans, safety, capacity, environmental effects, and more.
