honeycomb girder

Bridge construction crane produced by ZZHZ accesses to national patent with isosceles triangle honeycomb type main girder, it features light self-weight, high stiffness, low deflection and high wind resistance. The main longitudinal girder keeps load-bearing steel plates at two sides of box girder, removes non-load-bearing steel plates at upper and bottom parts, directly welds two sides steel plates together, replaces U-steel at bottom parts, thus the honeycomb girder structure is designed, it keeps the advantages of box girder and overcomes its shortcoming: too heavy.

Compared with box girder, honeycomb girder features low gravity centre, light weight, high safety and strong wind resistance;

Compared with truss girder, the honeycomb girder has a big welding conact area with uniform stress as loading, while the truss girder bears capacity, load-bearing contact point is U-steel welding point which will deformed as loading objects. So honeycomb girder has a lower deflection, higher stiffness. 6 pins connect two main longitudinal girders, short assembly time and uniform load-bearing.

Because main girder of honeycomb girder bridge construction crane adopts load-bearing steel plate which is $100 higher per ton than that of truss girder, the cost of honeycomb girder? in ZZHZ will be 5% or above higher than that of truss girder , based on same configuration and same weight. ZZHZ insists on using honeycomb girder? because it has three advantages comparing with truss girder :

  1. more durable main girder
  2. lower deflection
  3. higher safety
