For maximum flexibility and lifting capacity within a workspace, workstation cranes can be a great choice. Some operations, such as painting lines, require moving the load along a linear path. One or more hoists lift loads and move them straight down a single beam mounted on a vertical support structure. This is known as a freestanding monorail crane.
For operations that require moving loads in all directions, a freestanding bridge crane is often used. A horizontal beam carrying the hoist rolls along two support beams mounted to a four-post structure, allowing workers to lift and move loads anywhere within the structure.
For buildings with limited floor space, a ceiling-mounted bridge crane is a great solution. In this case, the crane is mounted to the ceiling with no structure on the ground. This allows workers to move forklifts and other machinery without any obstructions.
