What are Workstation Bridge Cranes and Monorails?

Bridge cranes cover rectangular work areas, while monorail systems can be used to move loads along a linear path, cover various work area shapes, or to link work areas together. Work station bridge cranes and monorails can be used individually or can be readily adapted for more sophisticated applications by the addition of extra monorail tracks, curves, and transfers that can be easily configured into a total system.

Workstation jib crane

Workstation Jib Cranes offers easy, ergonomic lifting and transfer of repetitive loads. These small, nimble cranes are faster than motorized jibs and are very affordable. The workstation jibs can be permanently foundation-mounted, portable with counterweight bases, wall-mounted, or foundationless to best suit your needs:

  • Freestanding Workstation Jib Cranes
    • 360-degree rotation
    • Standard crane heights to 12 feet (floor to bottom of the boom); taller designs available
    • Mounting plates attach with anchor bolts to a standard 6-inch reinforced concrete floor, or to new foundations for special load conditions
    • Smaller capacity cranes use square mounting plates with welded gussets connected to the mast; each plate uses four anchor bolts
    • Larger capacity cranes use hexagonal mounting plates with welded gussets connected to the mast; each plate uses 6 anchor bolts

What is a jib crane?

A type of crane, which has a horizontal member (known as jib or boom) that supports a moveable hoist fixed to a wall or to a floor-mounted pillar is known as jib crane.

Used mostly in industrial premises and on military vehicles, the jib may swing through an arc, giving additional lateral movement. It can be also fixed. The jib cranes can be also fitted on top floors of warehouse buildings to help lift goods to all floors from the ground to the top. The jib is an operating arm that extends horizontally from the crane.

The jib on a jib crane is a tilted strut that supports a fixed pulley block. Cables wrapped multiple times round the fixed block and round another block are attached to the load. The free end of the cable is pulled (manually or using a winding machine), the pulley system delivers a force to the load equal to the applied force multiplied by the number of lengths of cable passing between the two blocks. This number is known as the mechanical advantage.

Workstation crane and tradition crane

Comparison of workstation crane and tradition crane:

Workstation cranes can help workers to be more productive than the traditional cranes. A study conducted conveys that workstation crane increases productivity up to 28 percent compared to the traditional cranes. The workstation crane increases in productivity are possible because the workstation crane requires less effort to move than the traditional cranes

Features of the workstation crane system:

  • The workstation offers long spans for our workstation cranes. The enclosed track extends far, allowing us to offer the full coverage necessary for production and assembly lines.
  • The workstation cranes with standard profile sizes and bolt-on connections can be installed quickly
  • If your business depends on workers making repetitive movements or lifting heavy loads, and a workstation crane system can be a fast and easy way to improve productivity.
  • steel workstation crane system is available for hazardous environments.
