Electrolift offers custom engineered solutions for all manufacturing applications where quality and reliability are critical to success.
Illinois Electric Works oversaw the installation of a 2-ton capacity monorail crane system at a heavy truck manufacturer, featuring a 1-ton capacity twin-hook Caldwell lifting beam.
The Challenge: The end-user sought a material handling solution for separating frame rails in preparation for its assembly line process.
Top left: The centerpiece of the installation was a 1-ton capacity twin-hook Caldwell lifting beam. Top right: Electrolift designed a 2-ton capacity twin-hook hoist with a rigid (lug) mount to the beam. Bottom left: The system was assembled and tested onsite at HSI prior to shipment, including a load test. Bottom right: The system was completely designed from the ground up.
The Solution: Illinois Electric Works was initially contacted about the provision of a gantry, but a permanent monorail was decided upon during further consultation. Another Illinois company, Handling Systems International (HSI), led the engineering phase of the project, while Electrolift designed a 2-ton capacity twin-hook hoist with a rigid (lug) mount to the beam.
The final piece of the system was the all-important 353-inch long beam that holds the magnets that are used to lift the material. Align Production Systems was the integrator that built everything around the system.
