Project Description

Bridge Cranes 7.5 Ton

Simmers was called upon to solve an issue loading a new horizontal boring mill. The problem was that the customer did not want to interfere with their high bay crane space and the boring mill was located in a small addition off to the side that did not have crane coverage. The solution had to lift 7 1/2 ton and have no obstructions into the high bay space when large components are loaded out. Our engineering team went to work designing a cantilever monorail that could extend out into the high bay space and retrieve material placed by the overhead crane. The monorail beam could then fully retract when not in use so that there would not be interference with the high bay crane. The solution worked flawlessly and it provided the customer exactly what they needed.
