launching gantry
Underslung
The Underslung Launching Gauntry LG is a high efficiency equipment
specially designed to install precast concete segments in the box section
deck and typically spans in the order of 30 to 35m.
When the span activities are repetitive the achieved performance using
these Launching Gantries allow in a week to install all the segments
corresponding to 2 spans and in some cases even 2,5 spans.

Each span built using the precast segments has a lenght corresponding
to the distance in between the center to center of columns.

A simple solution!
The Underslung Launching Gantry is a simple solution to support the
precast concrete segments, being made by two almost symmetrical
halves.

Each half includes a main girder and two noses, supported at three
supporting brackets pairs connected to the columns. On the top of the
two main girders travels a gantry crane that perform the segments
assembling. On the main girder inner web outer surface there are
several support beams where the precast segments are supported
awaiting to be adjusted and prestressed.

Some of the inovations
introduced by
STRUKTURAS:
Independent main structure,
connected only by the gantry
crane, allowing to do transversal
adjustments from a single track
to double or even triple.

Implement hinge connections on
the Underslung Launching
Gantry making it possible to be
used at decks with horizontal
radius as small as 75m.

The hydraulic underslung
support system where segments
are supported allows correction
of any misaligments resulting
from lifting phase.

The STRUKTURAS Launching
Gantries exceeds conventional
design limitations in modern
bridge construction!
Both Underslung and Overhead
Launching Gantry solutions
consists of two main structures
combined with advanced lifting
devices, creating an
exceptionally flexible system for
both methods of construction
from span to span or
cantilevering.
