12 ton Single Girder Overhead Crane
Crane-Tec was recently contacted to supply a 12 ton single girder crane and 300 feet of crane rail and crane electric for a Metal Wall Panel manufacturer in the Midwest. The project consisted on (1) 12 ton top running single girder overhead crane and 300 feet of 40# crane rail and 4 bar electrification.
Crane-Tec worked with the General Contractor and Pre Engineered Metal Building supplier to determine the most practical and cost efficient design. Crane-Tec crews installed the overhead crane, crane rail and 4 bar electrification in less than 3 days. Crane-Tec technicians then arrived on-site to inspect the crane and install radio remote controls.
Crane-Tec utilized a low headroom design Shaw-Box World series 15 ton monorail hoist and had the hoist de-rated to a 12 ton capacity. All controls are housed in a NEMA 4/12 enclosure and all wiring is plug-in. The hoist incorporates triple reduction, helical, oil bath lubricated gearing in a cast aluminum gear case. We had heard good things about the Shaw-Box hoist and after putting our hand on one and building a crane incorporating the hoist we know what we heard was true. This is a well made piece of equipment utilizing the best components and engineering advances.
Another project and Overhead Crane that Crane-Tec can be proud of and stand behind.
