Monorails are a highly versatile lifting device that can have curves, switches, turntables and can even connect to overhead bridge cranes or conveyors. Manufacturers commonly utilize these cranes to relocate materials or products within a restricted location, as opposed to throughout an entire building.
A monorail crane is a great solution for:
- Assembly operations
- Transport of materials to workstations
- Product lines where parts are blasted, painted, or coated.
Monorails also serve as a material handling alternative in places that cannot accommodate a bridge crane. Monorail cranes provide only two axes of hook movement: up/down via the hoist and forward/back via the monorail beam.
