Monorail Cranes

Monorail cranes are a single (mono) rail system that allows travel back and forth along a rail, but not in a rectangular working area like a conventional bridge crane. A monorail is an effective solution when material is repetitively moved in a direct path from one point to another. Monorails can be supported by a floor or ceiling mounted structure.

G-Rail™ Crane Monorail

A G-Rail crane monorail supported with floor mounted columns.

This G-Rail crane monorail is supported with floor mounted columns and provides a straight path between stations.

Telescoping Monorail Crane

Telescoping monorails that are floor mounted.

A pair of telescoping monorails that share a floor mounted column structure. The telescoping monorail provides a direct path between two stations, but the crane rail can retract out of the way from a robot cell or forklift aisle, for example.

To see more examples, check out our telescoping cranes.

Curved Monorail Track

Monorails can allow for a curved track which is helpful when a linear path is not feasible and there is not enough room for a bridge crane system. A monorail loop can also be offered for a continuous repeated circuit, where tractor drives could be used to move an assembly fixture from station to station.
