Plastic Parts Overhead Crane

The Challenge:

To provide our customer a plastics part manufacturer with a freestanding 10 ton crane system over existing plastic injection molding machines.


Special Consideration:

1)       Limited clear height in building.

2)      Spacing of machine limits location of freestanding runway columns.

3)      Delicate handling of dies.

 Our Team Approach:

Our project manager precisely measured the building and location of plastic injection molding machine.  We located the runway column between the existing machine; this required different lengths of runway beams.  The 10 ton single girder crane was supplied with a low head room hoist to overcome the low building height.  We recommended a two-step variable speed radio controlled crane for precise handling.   

Results:

The customer located a new machine in a different location.  During the installation, Crane-Tec relocated two columns at no addition cost to the customer. 

The customer is able to change large dies in the machine safely and quickly.
