This project deals with the planning, designing, and estimation of the industrial PLATE GANTRY GIRDER, located near Thuvakkudi, Trichy district. Overhead plate girder is subjected to various types of load. Girder is the critical assembly component of overhead crane. Currently research is being carried out to improve the strength structure of overhead crane girder. These new efforts help to overcome overhead crane girder failure. The girder is supported on a suitably formed seat and it is also connected to the column near the top flange in each case in order to restrain it from lateral bending and twisting at the support point. Material handling is an important practical consideration in the design of new manufacturing and distribution systems and research into better material handling systems and practices is important. Material handling uses different equipment and mechanisms. The structure is designed as per Indian standard codes and necessary drawings added in this project. The 400kN capacity of gantry girder is designed, the three cranes were used in the working site. Three cranes are used to lifting the heavy steel jobs. when the three cranes are moving at the same time and same direction. In this project work an over head plate gantry girder has been planned and designed. The drawings of the girder were drawn using AUTOCAD software. As result of this, it was understood that how a structure could be planned and designed. The utilization value of Indian codes, other recommended codes and some software was understood.
