Beam Connector Clamp Plan Details

DIY Plans for I-Beam ClampImages on this page include both computer generated (CAD) images of the design, as well as actual photographs of the Beam Clamp in action.  The design is simple, and the implementation is easy.  The intent is to clamp a flat plate onto the face of an I-Beam without drilling holes in the I-Beam.  Infinitely variable positioning of the clamping and plate along the beam is then possible.

Plans show dimensions that make the clamps fit specific I-Beam applications.  As shown in the image, some simple calculations will adjust sizes to fit based on the beam and plate needs.  This will make the beam connector clamp fit the given I-Beam and plate perfectly so clamping is secure and robust.

This system of dimensioning makes it easy to build clamps for any size I-Beam.

Plans include easy to follow, fully illustrated instructions.  . . . More on What is in the Plans . . .  These are the perfect accessories to go with one of our Mobile Overhead Gantry Cranes!

I-Beam Connector Clamp Applications

Gantry Crane I-Beam ClampWhy use this system to fasten your gantry crane I-Beam?

Here is a list of applications where this clamp system is particularly helpful.  For more detail, then please read the related Mechanic’s Post introducing this I-Beam Connector Clamp as a new product for Mechanical Elements.

  1. Beam Clamps give the ability to adjust distance between the legs of the Gantry Crane without drilling more holes.  This makes the crane easier to store, and easier to work around other equipment.
  2. The effective I-Beam length (distance between the crane legs) is a big part of crane capacity, so shortening the distance can increase crane capacity.
  3. For special cases, and for light loads, the over-hanging portion can act as a cantilever beam crane, though with drastically lower loads.  When used this way, a proper counter-balance is required at the other end of the beam for safety.Gantry Crane Beam Clamp PlansThe Gantry Crane in the photo with the Beam Connector Clamp is our mid-size Perfect Garage Size Crane.  If you need one, we have the plans, and it definitely works with the clamp.
  4. I-Beam Connector ClampThe I-Beam Connector Clamp can be used to attach other items to the beam in a non-permanent way, and without drilling holes into the I-beam.  The extra item need only have a flat plate to match the beam.
  5. Mount the I-Beam Connector Clamp anywhere along the beam, then it will act as a very effective trolley stop.  Just slip a plate under it for proper clamping height.

Again, please read the full application guide in This Mechanical Elements Post.
