The team designed and built a portable bridge crane for use in class demonstrations. The design was be based off a typical gantry crane, which consists of a trolley spanning across two horizontal parallel beams that are part of a gantry with a payload hanging from the trolley. The group also needed to design the gantry itself and ensure it was both stable enough to support the trolley and payload at the desired operation speeds as well as scaled properly for the desired use.
