Cost Effective Monorail Systems Monorail Systems are a cost effective material handling solution for lifts along a fixed path. TabsDescription Hoosier Crane designs, builds and installs Monorail Crane SystemsMonorail systems are an economical choice for lifting and transporting product along a fixed path. By description a monorail is a single beam system that can have straight or curved sections of I beam, wide flange, enclosed or patented track shapes. For monorail systems, the hoist/ trolley rides on the lower flange of the beam or track. Hoosier Crane provides monorail systems with full manual operation, motorized hoist with push trolley, or fully motorized monorail systems. Our monorails are designed with a variety of material options to best fit your material handling needs and have the best fit for your capacity and budget. For smaller monorail system up to 2, 000 lbs we will often employ enclosed track systems. For mid-sized monorail systems and systems without curves we will employ cost effective steel monorail systems. For larger capacities monorails up to 40 tons with high duty ratings and the need for curves and interconnects learn more about our patented track monorail solutions.Monorail Crane Systems:Ceiling supported monorail systems are the most commonly used to maximize floor spaceFloor supported monorails are also available if your building structure is not adequate to support the monorail systemSingle beams allow for straight or curved sections for more flexibilityInterlocks and/or switches are common with monorail crane systems to easily move from one system to the nextMonorails are commonly used in paint lines, assembly lines, production processes, loading docks, and waste water treatment plantsWhy Choose Hoosier Crane for your Monorail Crane Systems:Hoosier Crane is your turn key solution for your monorail system needs.
