Small capacity, workstation crane

Company’s new crane rail profile accommodates AL System Workstation Cranes handling lighter loads up to 250 lbs. As with all AL Systems rail profile sizes, the smaller new AL-1 lightweight aluminum track profile incorporates exclusive t-slot design and anodized enclosed rails for maintenance-free workstation solutions.

All AL System Cranes safely and efficiently accommodate a wide variety of lifters and handling devices. With lightweight aluminum track profiles, AL System Cranes are also easily configured to suit almost any application need. Their anodized aluminum extrusions and enclosed rails maximize strength and extend durability.

Articulated anti-kick up wheels offer additional advantages. AL System Cranes are articulating, meaning that they are free moving and do not require movement at right angles. This feature also provides smooth operation and a low starting force even when the load is at the end of the bridge. In addition, the AL System Crane’s anti-kick up nylon wheels deliver smooth and safe movement of the trolley inside the enclosed rail.

One of the most important advantages over other lightweight aluminum rail systems, product engineers note, is an exclusive t-slot design for splicing two pieces of rail together. The t-slot eases installation with a wide variety of integrating equipment, such as lifters and end-effectors, chain hoists or smart lifters. The t-slot splice design also eliminates bumps when a load is moved over track splices. Engineered Material Handling, Valley City, Ohio, 330/220-8600 ext. 225;
