EMH (Valley City, OH) announces a smaller new EMH AL-1 System crane rail profile that accommodates AL System Workstation Cranes handling lighter loads up to 500 lbs. As with all AL Systems rail profile sizes, the smaller new AL-1 lightweight aluminum track profile incorporates the company’s exclusive EMH T-slot design and anodized enclosed rails, for maintenance-free workstation solutions. All AL-System Cranes safely and efficiently accommodate a wide variety of lifters and handling devices. With lightweight aluminum track profiles, AL System Cranes are also easily configured to suit almost any application need. Their anodized aluminum extrusions and enclosed rails maximize strength, provide longer durability and add to their aesthetics. Additional benefits include the following:
- AL System Cranes are articulating, meaning that they are free moving and do not require movement at right angles. This feature also provides smooth operation and a low starting force even when the load is at the end of the bridge. In addition, the AL-System Crane’s anti-kick up nylon wheels delivers smooth and safe movement of the trolley inside the enclosed rail.
- One of the most important advantages over other lightweight aluminum rail systems is an exclusive EMH t-slot design for splicing two pieces of rail together. With the EMH t-slot design, installation with a wide variety of integrating equipment, such as lifters and end-effectors, chain hoists or smart lifters, is easier. The EMH t-slot splice design also eliminates bumps when a load is moved over track splices.
