Structural features of gantry cranes

When we need to buy a gantry crane, we usually need to consider: lifting capacity, lifting height, material weight, rotation angle, etc. So, what is the structure of gantry crane?
A gantry crane is a type of crane used to lift and lower a load from a bridge supported by legs. The main beam that straddles the workspace and load is the gantry or I-beam. This beam holds the hoist and trolley frame. Similar to an overhead crane, a gantry is typically one that is mobile and can be moved on a series of wheels or rails.
