What Exactly are Workstation Cranes

Workstation cranes are efficient and effective solutions for every day lifting needs. They are specifically designed to meet the varied and demanding requirements of workstations and production lines. They enable operators to achieve effortless and reliable area-serving overhead handling for a wide variety of applications by configuring each crane system with the operator in mind and include the principal feature of ease of movement, designed to reduce fatigue and ensure accurate load positioning. The span ranging from 10 to over 34 feet which can be easily installed into an existing or new workstation to provide instant lifting assistance. They allow optimal utilization of the working area below the crane and increased productivity. A workstation crane can be ceiling-mounted or freestanding, single or double girder bridges or even monorails.

Workstation Cranes are Cost Effective

Workstation cranes are cost-effective options which don’t require architectural investments which are mostly required for installing overhead crane. They help operators make precise, repetitive movements. The enclosed track on the workstation crane extends far which allow the full coverage necessary for production and assembly lines. Their standard profile sizes and bolt on connections can be quickly installed within a day which will help reduce production downtime and save cost. It will help save workers the stress of repetitive movements and lifting heavy loads making it fast and increasing productivity. Workstation cranes are available in both aluminum and steel form. Workstation cranes allow workers to achieve effortless and reliable area-serving overhead handling for a wide variety of applications. Each system is configured to suit the operators taste and includes the principal feature of ease of movement, designed to reduce fatigue and ensure accurate load positioning. They can be extended and relocated quite easily and allow for manual handling. These workstation cranes are equipped with splice joints that connect the track sections and are completed with vertical and horizontal adjustment screws, facilitating precise alignment of the track sections. Two types of workstation cranes exist which are the ceiling mounted and free-standing system:

  • Floor Mounted Crane is not a permanent part of a factory and can be easily relocated at any point in time. Installation of this is much easier and doesn’t involve the stress of building a roof structure.
  • Ceiling Mounted is preferred when there is limited floor space or access to other equipment is needed. Floor support steel will be required. Here the support structure is suitable for the loads imposed.
