Monorail crane and hoist systems for every business.
When materials are too heavy or bulky to move through a facility with floor mounted conveyors, light trucks, or workstation cranes – one of the most effective methods for material handling over a sustained distance is often a monorail system. Monorail systems use continuous run of overhead track with electric, pneumatic or hand-powered trollies. Most utilize one of two track styles– an enclosed track or a patented track system.
Patented track monorails:
Patented track monorails are comprised of a track that has been fabricated into a section that resembles an inverted “T”. This section serves as the flange for the trolley’s running wheels.
Enclosed track monorails:
Enclosed track monorail systems consist of a rectangular track that is fabricated with a continuous slot that runs the lengths of the underside. Using a flange, trolleys travel along this section to transport loads for nearly any application.
