Gantry Crane Exhibition by Hands On!

Gantry Crane

Move, sort, stack and load as you work the controls of this three-dimensional gantry crane.

Visitors use joystick controls to operate three axes of movement (up/down, left/right, forward/backward) in this eight-foot-high version of a working industrial crane. A fourth control allows visitors to work the electromagnet at the end of the suspended crane cable to lift and move objects. Visitors can work together or alone to coordinate the movement of the crane, shift cargo onto an eight-foot cutout of a container ship, or sort and stack items in any configuration they like.
