IMPROVE PRODUCTIVITY, INCREASE QUALITY, AND CREATE A SAFER WORK ENVIRONMENT WITH A WORKSTATION CRANE SYSTEM.
Available in both aluminum and steel, workstation crane systems utilize an enclosed track with a high strength to weight ratio.
These pre-engineered crane solutions are available in a variety of configurations with spans up to 30 feet and lift capacities between 150 and 4,000 pounds. This line of ergonomic crane products comes with a variety of builds along with Hoosier Crane's industry leading pricing.
We can guarantee increased productivity at a cost you can afford
With options available for ceiling mount, freestanding, and monorail configurations, a workstation crane from Hoosier Crane is sure to handle any project up to 4,000 lbs. For larger capacities be sure to check out our range of overhead bridge cranes.
Workstation cranes are a type of bridge crane designed for light to heavy manufacturing and production environments. Workstation cranes have a lifting capacity up to two-tons and runways of any length. Due to their size, free-standing workstation cranes can often be installed below large jib or overhead cranes, creating improved work cells. Ceiling hung workstation cranes are available when needed.
The key difference between workstation and overhead cranes is the scale, with workstation cranes aimed at small-scale improved ergonomics and reducing their reliance on lifting heavy items. Additionally, they can increase workers' productivity, quality, and safety.
Workstation Cranes in Action
Many businesses benefit from adding a crane in workspaces. We've installed them across the region in many industries, including:
- Mass transportation
Any place a worker would benefit from help with repetitive lifting will benefit from a crane. They can also be customized to fit in unusual places and circumstances. Because they're lightweight, they're quite adaptable to a wide range of solutions. Plus, due to their low cost, you can install one for each work area. Jib cranes can even be added to pass items between cells.
Types of Workstation Cranes
There are a few divisions of cranes that are considered workstation-size. We can help you make the best choice for every situation and provide the highest return on your investment.
Some things to consider when purchasing a workstation crane. First, do you need a free-standing crane or a ceiling mount? Overhead mounts can handle the full range of weights for workstation cranes, and they take up considerably less floor space, so they are often preferred. However, obstructions in the ceiling or the work area, along with weight limitations in the building design, may limit this option. Free-standing cranes provide support and can be mounted on a standard 6" concrete floor.
Second, what size do you need? The runway area is the length of travel of the overhead crane. Runway lengths are fully customizable to your workspace. The bridge span is typically from 8 to 28 feet. Perhaps most importantly, what is the lifting capacity you need? All our cranes can carry repeated loads up to the maximum weight rating minus the hoist's weight. Also, consider any expansions or upgrades you may be planning for in the near or far future.
All our workstation cranes come with a modular design for increased flexibility and easy assembly. They include an enclosed track for smooth rolling and rigid runways for easy movement, longer life, and no crab walking. There are several track profiles and spanning capabilities available, and we specialize in customization.
