TC/American Crane Company (Elk River, MN) announces its unique SPANMASTER pre-engineered, enclosed track, workstation cranes. Available in both freestanding and ceiling mounted designs, SPANMASTER systems have a capacity range from 250 lbs. to 4400 lbs. Most important, SPANMASTER combines an ergonomic enclosed track bridge with a non-proprietary wide-flange or other runway systems and a unique range of motion features, including:
Range Of Motion Advantages: SPANMASTER utilizes a fixed runway beam with an oscillating, articulating and pivoting bridge made possible with patented SPANMASTER end trucks. These end trucks feature a unique ball pivot and U-hanger lower pivot which significantly reduces operator effort to move the load (as low as 100 to 1).
Industry Leading End Approach: SPANMASTER articulating end trucks, unlike rigid end trucks, do not require a longer wheelbase with longer span cranes to resist binding. Our largest end truck (4400 lb. capacity) has an overall length of just 9.35 inches which allows for best in class performance and end approach.
Articulating End Trucks: SPANMASTER end trucks are available in several different models to fit the desired capacity and beam flange width. Designed to run on non-proprietary wide flange beams, the end trucks are adjustable to accommodate various sized runway flange widths. They feature steel or resin wheels with steel side guide rollers for longevity and ease of use.
