How to Select A Workstation Crane
Basic Questions You Need to Consider
What is the size and shape of the work area you are looking to cover?
Work Station Bridge Cranes offer square/rectangular coverage while Workstation Jib Cranes offer circular coverage.
Is the crane going to be manual or motorized?
When load weight or operational cycle time makes manual bridge or boom movement non-economical, impractical, or unsafe motorized rotation may be the answer
What is the capacity of the load?
“Less is More, Don’t Overcrane” – lifting and moving product that weighs 200 lbs. would only require a 250 lb. bridge – don’t go overboard with a 500 lb. bridge unless you know for sure you will be lifting heavier loads in the not to distant future.
What is the crane’s environment?
In food processing applications and manufacturing plants utilizing harsh chemicals it may be necessary to specify stainless steel or a food grade epoxy coating to protect against corrosion and meet certain industry standards
How will the crane be used in daily operation?
