With a monorail
system, the hoist and trolley run on a single stationary
beam. Because of their inherent speed
and efficiency, monorail systems
are an effective method of moving
and positioning loads to specific
locations. They are available in capacities up to 150 tons.
Our engineering staff can design complex monorail systems including curved tracks, multiple switches and interlocks which permit monorails to interface with other material handling systems. Highly automated monorail systems, controlled by computers or programmable logic controllers, are also available.
We design and build supporting structures, too—both ceiling-suspended and floor-mounted self-supporting. This allows us to provide you with the most cost-competitive monorail system for your facility.
Monorails are often used
for repetitive production jobs, such
as paint booths and water treatment
plants. Monorails are best
used in applications where materials
are to be transported from one fixed
point to another fixed location, or
through a process; e.g., painting,
blasting, delivering hot metal from
the furnace to a fixed pouring location. The
monorail allows two axes of hook
movement: up/down and forward/back
along the monorail beam. There is
no lateral motion under the
