Workstation Cranes – Enclosed Track
Workstation cranes are used primarily in a work cell providing coverage to individual work areas. Like its heavier duty counterpart, the workstation crane covers a rectangular area just like an overhead bridge crane. With their modular design all workstations cranes are sold as pre-engineered kits and are easy to assemble and install. They are also much easier to operate and control than a standard I-beam or Patented track system. Mixed capacity systems are also available which allows multiple, lower capacity bridges to be used on higher capacity runways. Workstation cranes can be easily integrated with other equipment such as jibs cranes and monorails. There are two types of Workstation cranes, Free-Standing and Ceiling Mounted.
