Shop Cranes

Shop cranes are essential tools in a wide range of industries, providing the lifting power and flexibility needed for various tasks. These versatile pieces of equipment are designed to handle heavy loads within workshops, factories, and warehouses, making them indispensable for tasks such as engine removal and installation, equipment maintenance, and material handling.

One of the primary advantages of shop cranes is their mobility. Many models are equipped with wheels, allowing them to be easily moved to different locations within a workspace. This mobility enables workers to position the crane precisely where it's needed, reducing the need for excessive manual lifting and minimizing the risk of workplace injuries.

Shop cranes come in various configurations, with two common types being the overhead crane and the gantry crane. Overhead cranes are typically mounted on the ceiling or overhead structure of a building, providing a wide range of motion and the ability to cover a large workspace. Gantry cranes, on the other hand, have legs or supports on both ends and are often used in areas where the installation of an overhead crane is not practical. Gantry cranes are highly adaptable and can be used both indoors and outdoors.

These cranes are typically powered by electricity or hydraulics, providing the necessary strength to lift and maneuver heavy objects safely. They often feature adjustable booms or arms, which can be extended or retracted as needed, and some models are equipped with additional attachments like hooks, slings, or lifting magnets to accommodate different loads and materials.

In conclusion, shop cranes are indispensable tools for industries that require heavy lifting and precise material handling. Their mobility, adaptability, and lifting capabilities make them essential for improving productivity, enhancing workplace safety, and streamlining various operations in workshops and manufacturing facilities. Whether it's lifting engines, moving materials, or performing maintenance tasks, shop cranes play a pivotal role in keeping operations efficient and workers safe.

OVERHEAD CRANES

Overhead cranes, commonly referred to as a bridge cranes, are lifting devices that are elevated on parallel runways, which typically run the full length of the facility. A travelling bridge spans the gap of the runway. A Hoist is used to lift and handle the load as it travels along the span of the bridge. Your crane operator will have the versatility to lift the desired load to any destination inside the facility.

 

JIB CRANES

We can offer one of North America’s largest ranges of jib cranes. A technical data book of standard jib crane solutions from up to 40,000 lbs capacity is available on request. All specially engineered jib cranes are produced in capacities up to 80,000 lbs.

The two basic formats of a jib crane are free standing and wall mounted, each of which may be equipped with chain or wire rope hoists. We offer under and over braced jib arms to maximize lift or travel.

Freestanding jib cranes can be constructed for maximum slewing angles of 360 degrees with a variety of fixing solutions including anchor bolts and wall plates.

 

WORKSTATION CRANES

Workstation crane (Workstation Bridge Crane) is a pre-engineered modular crane that allows for easy relocation and/or expansion by simply adding runway sections and/or additional bridges.

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.

 

 

GANTRY CRANES

Gantry cranes are an ideal solution for applications where lifting is needed without the cost of a building or supporting steelwork. For full and semi-gantry cranes, similar to an overhead crane (bridge crane), the runway is located on the floor rather than the ceiling. Portable gantry cranes use polyurethane wheels and are completely mobile, which is used for light lifting.

Gantry cranes can be placed indoors or outdoors and cost less than an overhead crane system.
