  • Rectangular coverage with up to 34’ bridge and 124’ runway standard
  • Standard support distances of 20', 25', and 30' feet.
  • Easy to move and position loads
  • Modular design for greater flexibility
  • Doesn't require an existing support structure

Features

  • Enclosed track,  easy movement,  long life 
  • Rigid runways, superior load positioning: no movement or “crab-walking” of the bridge
  • Ease of Installation: Installs on any standard 6" concrete floor 
  • Smooth rolling surface, easier movement of bridge and trolleys 
  • Multiple track profiles and spanning capabilities: Adaptable, flexible, and cost competitive

Work Station Crane Parts

Work Station Cranes:

Bridge:  The bridge is the only part of the work station crane in motion.  It supports the lifting device and facilitates movement of the load along the Y and X axis.  Bridges can be up to 34' long and are available in steel or aluminum.

Runways: the bridge's end trucks ride within the track of the crane's runways, which determine the overall coverage area of your work station crane.  The track used for runways can be spliced together to span distances.

Column (Free Standing Only): The column are the "legs" of a freestanding work station crane.  They are bolted to the floor and support the columns and the runways.  The distance between columns is determined by your crane's overall capacity and the type of track.

Header (Free Standing Only): The work station crane system header is made of back to back "C" channel, which allows for easy connections to the runway hanger support hardware.
