EOT (Electronic overhead traveling) crane is essential industrial equipment involved in the material handling job. Overhead EOT single girder cranes are used to lift the objects by a hoist fitted in a trolley. It comes under standard crane types. Overhead cranes can be segregated under two categories based on the number of and based on the nature of running.
EOT crane configuration has under running and top running cranes (based on nature of running).
