Rail Systems

Enclosed rail forms the backbone of any material handling system. Ingersoll Rand offers five enclosed rail profiles in lightweight aluminum and durable steel.

The enclosed rail design reduces the accumulation of dirt and grime on the internal running surfaces, thus reducing rolling effort. These enclosed track profiles feature lightweight, precision running surfaces with less than 1% rolling resistance.

All the accessories, such as hanger kits, end trucks, trolleys, safety cables, and end stops, are provided to construct a complete ceiling supported or freestanding workstation crane system. The entire system is easily bolted together and requires no welding to assemble.

Ceiling Supported Workstation Cranes

Download     Ceiling Supported Workstation Cranes

Ingersoll Rand offers ceiling supported workstation cranes with spans up to 30 ft (9 m) and capacities up to 3000 lb (1360 kg). Ceiling supported workstation cranes utilize rugged steel or lightweight aluminum enclosed track rail in one of five profiles. Ingersoll Rand's premium articulating bridge crane design reduces the force required to position the load.

Key Features

  • Flexible Mounting : Mounts parallel or perpendicular to overhead support steel. Assorted hanger kit styles available to attach to I-Beam, C-Channel, angle iron, and other steel shapes.
  • Saves Space : Ceiling supported design eliminates the need for added columns, meaning less obstructions in the work area
  • Articulating End Trucks : Articulating design maximizes the ability of the operator to precisely position the load. Reduces operator fatigue by allowing the operator to move only the portion of the bridge crane near the load.
  • Minimal Rolling Resistance : Advanced trolley design with injection molded Delrin wheels reduces rolling resistance to 1% of the load


Product Certifications & Design Standards

  • MMA Certified : Meets ANSI MH27.2 Specifications for Enclosed Track Underhung Cranes and Monorail Systems
