Your workstation solution

Monorails cranes 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.

Monorail cranes are most effective in production applications where materials are repetitively moved from one point to another. The monorail hoist and trolley run on a single stationary beam—a cost-effective alternative to a bridge or gantry cranes for applications that require limited lifting capacity.

Examples include assembly operations, transport of materials to workstations, and 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. If your application requires lateral motion, you’ll need to consider other alternatives such as a bridge or gantry crane.
