eme Equipment Design Principles

Safety, Simplicity, Mobility & Portability Designed for the operator

Operator Safety

All products are designed and tested to meet or exceed regulatory requirements and to focus on operator safety


Our products are designed to be intuitive, easy to use and operate without the need for complex rigging equipment or machinery

Mobility & Portability

Our innovative designs can easily be moved under load or transported to off-site locations, minimizing the need for redundant equipment that can consume limited floor space

Key Product Features Designed for the Operator

eme‘s Gantry Cranes offer unprecedented mobility and versatility as they’re easy to assemble and easy to move safely under their full-rated load, backed by an industry-leading warranty.


  • High-tech, all-aluminum-alloy construction (Legs, Beam, Beam Trolley)
  • Easily transported between job sites in a standard-sized pickup truck and easily made compact for storage
  • Locking ‘surround-beam’ trolley rides on top of the beam and cannot derail, enhancing operator safety
  • Hollow beam allows for ground-up assembly, making it easy to build for two to four people
  • Casters that lock independently (for swivel and roll), so Gantry can be steered and rolled under load
  • Easy-grip, operator-friendly handles for height adjustment
  • Aluminum billet handles on beam for easy carrying
  • Grade L9 plated fasteners
  • Optional steel shipping pallet for even easier gantry crane transportation
Lightweight, Portable, Ease of Use

Designed with the maintenance operator as our focus, the lightweight and portable eme Gantry Cranes, moveable under full rated load, offers best-in-class ease-of-use. With our box-beam design, two operators each with a wrench, can quickly build it from the ground up in typically 5 minutes. Our focus on simplicity means this can all be done by tightening just 4 bolts to lock the beam into place.

With the eme portable Gantry Crane systems, an operator can easily adjust the beam height or width to navigate either narrow transit areas, or low over head constraints.  It’s lightweight and portable construction makes it easy to transport and assemble at the lift location. Operators can assemble it over piping, motors, pumps, openings or on rooftops. eme has created unique additions to its product family such as the eme split-beam that make it easy to carry a long beam around tight corners.

If your lifting capacity needs change over time, don’t worry, you don’t necessarily need to purchase an entirely new gantry crane. eme‘s box-beams are interchangeable in our 1/2T to 5T platform. The resulting eme Gantry Crane will be rated to the lowest rated component. So if most of your lifts are at 5T requiring a 15 foot beam, but you have an occasional 1T lift requiring a 25 foot beam, then don’t worry, you can just add the 1T beam to your 5T eme portable Gantry Crane. No need to spend precious capital budget on an entirely new gantry crane.

With the advent of the eme aluminum Gantry Cranes, gone are the days of fixed height, heavy steel I Beam gantry cranes. eme has ushered in a new era of adjustable, lightweight and portable Gantry Cranes that you can adjust for your specific environment.  Even though it’s aluminum, we have high lifting capacity, enough to lift heavy machinery!
