A specialist in overhead bridge crane design, build, and installation, Innovated Industrial Services has expanded its production capabilities to include construction of box girders, well suited for use with long-span, high-capacity double girder overhead bridge cranes and runway beams commonly used in concrete products and other heavy industrial applications. The company also designs and builds single-girder, mono-box models.
Unveiled for a fall 2013 dealer meeting, the DB 200 is the largest rubber-tired, double-beam, fully traversable gantry crane the manufacturer has ever built: More than 54 feet tall, more than 68 feet wide and just under 44 feet long, it can handle loads that are up to 400,000 lb. The crane can lift a full-capacity load on one side or the other, not just on its centerline. The DB 200 underwent product testing during the dealer meeting, in advance of delivery to its new owner, a large Canadian power supplier.Read More
