Spanco Freestanding Workstation Bridge Cranes



Spanco Freestanding Workstation Bridge Cranes provide highly-effective cost-efficient lifting and moving solutions, especially when:

  • You need overhead crane coverage for a large area––up to 40-feet wide and with unlimited length. With interconnected parallel systems, you can cover your entire building
  • You rent or lease your building. Our bolt-together freestanding systems can be readily relocated, either within your plant or in an entirely new location
  • You want to be able to easily expand or modify your overhead crane system
  • Your roof support is inadequate for a Spanco Ceiling-Mounted Bridge Crane. Typically, a standard six-inch thick reinforced concrete floor is all that’s needed for our freestanding workstation bridge cranes for non-seismic applications

In addition to our custom engineered systems, we sell pre-engineered systems that include everything but the hoist and anchor bolts. All Spanco systems meet or exceed ANSI/ASME B30.11 and ANSI/MMA MH27.2 standards for underhung cranes and monorails.

  • Telescoping Bridges: Providing extended crane reach, telescoping bridges allow you to place parts easily into machinery or into a neighboring workstation. Telescopic bridge cranes also enable you to reach beyond a support column or under a mezzanine. Anti-kick-up wheels keep the telescoping bridge’s movement smooth, even when carrying up to 2,000 pounds.
  • Mixed Capacity Systems: Leverage system capability by specifying heavier capacity runways with multiple smaller capacity bridges. For example, a 2,000-pound capacity runway can run two 1,000-pound bridges or four 500-pound bridges.
  • Tractor Drives: Motorize the bridge or hoist trolley on a Spanco Workstation Bridge Crane. Frequently used for loads of 1,000-pounds or more, tractor drives are very helpful when transporting material into hard-to-reach areas where manual movement is difficult due to machinery, work tables, or other obstacles.
  • Bridge Buffers: The buffers roll in the runway tracks between two bridges, which prevent the bridges from overloading the runway’s capacity.
  • Intermediate Bumpers: Through-bolted end stops installed at runway support centers prevent more than one bridge crane from operating within a set of support centers.
  • Double-Girder Nested Trolleys (Crab Trolleys): Increasing the available lift height for low headroom applications, double-girder nested trolleys keep the hoist nested between dual girders, which form a box-shaped assembly that rises above a parallel set of connected bridges.
  • Box Track: Festooning cables and hoses run in their own box track, typically positioned above the runway or bridge.
  • Duct-O-Bar™ Electrical Connections: An alternative to festooning cable is the Duct-O-Bar 4-conductor electrical solid bar and brushes in conduit, which runs adjacent to enclosed track on runways or bridges.
