The structure of stand alone workstation bridge cranes is header-braced across the ends. The header and runway beams are connected to the top of the column with a rigid moment connection. Therefore, header-bracing removes the requirement for knee and other braces, which keeps the workstation free of obstruction allowing for maximum use of the work area. Header-bracing also eliminates the need to brace the crane structure to the building structure, which allows for locating the workstation in the most desirable area.
The bridge on a CraneWerks workstation crane rides on the very top of the structure, which provides maximum hook height. The additional hoist hook height gained by the unique momentary connection and top running design ranges in many cases from 10 to 24 inches.
