Re: Gantry Crane

OK, I get 2862 lbs. max SWL with load in middle of beam. 1795 A D /9 A= area of beam=2.87 sq. in. D= depth of beam= 5" 25758/9 = 2862 lbs. That should do it for you! This beam has a .210" thick web. It's been a while since I did this calc. so I had to get out the book and refresh myself. :roll: Pete

Hi Pete, the dimensions are 5” h x 3” w. Span could be 9’ but I only need 7’ if the span makes a difference.

Thanks ,

Re: Gantry Crane

I was going to figure out the SWL but I could not find a dimension for the span of the beam. You mentioned you had a beam 9 feet long but I don't know if that is your intended span?

I do need to know the dimensions of the beam and if it's a wide flange or standard beam

Re: Question about silver brazing

I agree with Harold and Richard and will add that given clean parts, only a light smear of flux is required. On blind holes that are more than one diameter deep I will drill a small hole at the blind end to let the solder 'out'. A hole .03" diameter is enough...

Use anything you need to use as long as it's strong enough.
