Monorail Cranes are designed for use in industrial settings where repetitive movements are required. They are often used in parts assembly where they are required to move items from one fixed location to another, or in processing applications.
Monorail Cranes have a simple structure – a basic trolley and hoist moves along a single fixed beam. They only allow movement in two directions, up and down and along the length of the beam.
Although simplistic in structure, Monorail Cranes can move heavy loads. A typical Monorail Crane may be able to move loads of up to 150 tonnes.
Advantages of Monorail Cranes
There are many advantages to using Monorail Cranes:
• The simplicity of their basic structure means that Monorail Cranes are highly adaptable. The fixed beam can be curved, straight or interlocking. The crane system can also be adapted to work in conjunction with other materials handling systems.
• Unlike many other crane types, Monorail Cranes take up very little space and so are particularly good in settings where space is tight.
• It is easy to move a Monorail Crane, for example between factories, and they are easy to add to, should your needs change as your business grows.
• Most significantly, Monorail Cranes are capable of moving heavy loads quickly and efficiently. Their use could save many factories time and money.
