Overhead cranes, also known as bridge or workstation cranes, can perform a wide variety of heavy lifting and hoisting applications in manufacturing and industrial environments. Overhead cranes are typically mounted on a trolley located on or near the ceiling of a facility, enabling the user to move them to wherever they’re needed.
As a leading provider of top-notch material handling lifting devices, Tilt-Lock is your single source for complete workstation crane and rail systems from TC/American that will help you work faster and more efficiently while also promoting a safer work environment.
Choose the Overhead Crane That Meets Your Operating Requirements
Our selection of overhead cranes includes workstation cranes and two-inch rail systems, both with their own unique functions and benefits.
If your operations entail moving workpieces through a series of stations, workstation cranes provide a reliable overhead lifting solution. Use them to safely transport loads weighing up to 30,000 pounds. They feature an independent support structure that eliminates the need for attachment to a ceiling or other facility component while also making them easy to assemble and install.
These crane systems are perfect for high-value workpieces, such as motors, jet engines and machine spindles ranging from 10 to 60 feet in width and unlimited length. The system’s interconnectivity allows you to easily connect adjacent workstations to facilitate movement from one station to the next until reaching a primary bridge crane.
Two-Inch Rail Systems
We also offer two-inch flange monorail systems from TC/American that enable hand-pushing of workpieces throughout the manufacturing processes — the items never need to touch the ground. They’re the ideal solution for handling heavy, bulky or irregularly shaped products.
The versatility, convenience and ease of installation offered by these overhead cranes also make them an extremely cost-effective material handling equipment solution. While they can accommodate loads weighing up to 4,000 pounds, monorail cranes will reduce worker fatigue when pushing lighter products in the 40- to 100-pound range. We can provide the right combination of trolleys, rails, switches, curves and drives to meet your unique facility layout requirements.
How Overhead/Workstation Cranes Can Benefit Your Company
Integrating monorail or workstation cranes into your material handling process will allow you to complete projects faster and more efficiently, which will dramatically increase productivity. Because they consume no floor space, you’ll be able to get the most out of every square foot of your facility. By limiting the need for manual labor, these products will also help to reduce the number of workplace injuries that create additional operating expenses and can result in costly workers’ compensation claims.
