Ceiling Mounted Bridge CranesCeiling mounted and stand-alone overhead cranes proved a cost effective and efficient solution to your material handling issues. A ceiling mounted crane will provide maximum coverage of an area without interfering with existing support columns, while a stand-alone system can be installed without being confined to the structure of the building. Also, either system can be linked to a monorail conveyor system or even another crane using our Track Transfer Assembly.
Freestanding Bridge Cranes
NikoTrack crane enables the user an easy, fast and ergonomic movement of the material downshop and across a span. Manual bridge cranes operate faster than motorized systems, the latter is used where accessibility is restricted. NikoTrack has a tapered track that automatically guides the trolley to the center of the track, moving the heaviest loads only requires a fraction of force to begin movement and even less to maintain it. There is a 100/1 weight to force ratio, so to move a 1,000 lbs of material only requires 10 lbs of force to start moving it and only 8 lbs to continue moving. Also, with the NikoTracks inverted tapered track profile, there is a much less likelihood of dirt/dust accumulating inside of the track which will require less maintenance and ensure reliability.
NikoTrack has a full range of track, track joints, support brackets, I-beam connectors and end carriage trolleys. All designed for ease of design and installation. All fittings are zinc plate for maximum durability and protection for tough operating environments. Tracks are available in 6 meter length ( 19.70 feet), they are cold rolled with tapered sides designed to center the trolleys, prevent dust build up assuring smooth transfer of trolleys. The end carriage trolleys are fitted with horizontal guide rollers, connecting the moving cross bridge member to the down shop tracks.
