Two ergonomic workstation crane models
Frontenac Technologies offers two types of ergonomic workstation cranes: ergonomic ceiling-mounted travelling cranes and ergonomic free-standing workstation cranes. The main difference between the two is that one is suspended from the building’s structure while the other is installed on the floor. Each model has its own features and capacity. Your choice should be based on your needs and the actions to be performed. Our experts take the time to evaluate your situation and help you make an informed decision.
Sturdiness and strength of ergonomic free-standing workstation cranes
Ergonomic free-standing workstation cranes are anchored to the floor. While this means they take up more floor space, they are also very robust and sturdy. What’s more, there is no need to use the building’s structure. As a result, even though ergonomic free-standing workstation cranes are larger, they have an impressive load capacity of over 4,000 lb (1,800 kg).
Adaptable modular design
Ergonomic free-standing workstation cranes have a modular design, which makes them easier to modify as the company, its work area and its needs evolve. This design also makes it possible for the cranes to support loads ranging from 250 to 4,400 lb (125 to 2,000 kg).
Ergonomic free-standing workstation crane movement
Ergonomic free-standing workstation cranes offer a considerable range of motion. Ergonomic tracks facilitate load handling, and give the cranes a wide span and significant flexibility. Depending on your needs, an electric or pneumatic hoist, zero-gravity hoist, or lifting tube is suspended from the lifting trolley. The trolley and hoist may be motorized and controlled by a pendant control station or wireless radio control.
Frontenac Technologies uses Mantion Manutention’s cold-rolled tracks. They are modular, and the loads are easy to move (requiring approximately 1% of the weight, e.g. 20 lb for a 2,000 lb load), so you don’t necessarily need a motor.
Moving ergonomic free-standing workstation cranes
Unlike ergonomic ceiling-mounted travelling cranes, ergonomic free-standing workstation cranes are attached to posts. This makes them more difficult to move, but if you aren’t planning any major changes to your work environment in the short or medium term, they could be the ideal choice for you.
Bridge cranes are made of galvanized, black or stainless steel. They can span up to 30 feet wide by the length required (e.g. 300 feet). Depending on your needs, an electric, pneumatic or manual hoist, zero-gravity hoist, or lifting tube is suspended from the bridge crane.
