Low Head Room Systems

Stratalign Low head room track/bridge system is a user friendly girder gantry crane system for personal work stations. As with all configurations, its coverage is extensive and the swinging of the load is minimized as the loaded push trolley centralises itself automatically to the right lifting position.

The complete gantry crane, either single or double, can be suspended from the roof construction with standard suspensions or mounted on the floor with freestanding support frames. A raised construction is the right choice when the lifting height has to be maximised. Raised construction is designed for locations with limited headroom where standard construction would not allow the required lifting height. The bridge profiles of raised construction are raised between the tracks profiles to increase lifting height.

The single girder gantry crane is the most ergonomic solution, due to its three dimensional construction and light weight. On a double girder crane, the hoist is suspended from a hoist saddle located between the bridge profiles. As a result, the load capacity is doubled and the lifting height increases.

Palmerston North City Council - Case Study

The Requirement

This busy waste water plant in Palmerston North needed a custom-made crane system to be designed, manufactured and installed with minimal disruption to their operation.

The Challenge

The original Pump Station building had been commissioned many years previous without any lifting mechanisms in place to maintain screens, pumps and motors. Maintenance on the existing equipment was due to be undertaken so a tight timeframe was of the essence.

Solution to a long-standing challenge

As a solution to a long standing challenge, Cabtec Ltd purchased a Fezer vacuum lifter from Stratalign Limited, for processing product through a processing line. Prior to the purchase, the process had required manual handling, which in today's environment, is not a sustainable option.

More than one option for this solution was investigated by Cabtec with the decision being a vacuum lifter as the winning choice. Cabtec's spokesman recalls, Cabtec selected Stratalign as the winning supplier, based on their ability to provide the technical and professional advice, along with what Cabec considered a top quality product for a competitive price.

The ease of operation is facilitated by the very smooth running bearings and movement points, integral to this structurally sound piece of kit. He continues, From the day the order was placed, the Stratalign team kept us updated with progress, to the day the machine was installed.

The installation process was organized in such a way, by Stratalign, that it caused absolute minimal disruption to a very busy working environment during normal working hours.
