Many types of businesses use overhead bridge cranes to cut down overhead for more manpower, but they may not be getting the maximum benefits from the equipment. Take a look at the benefits of using overhead cranes to see if one might be right for your business.
Save Time and Money
Many companies may have rented a building with an overhead bridge crane and don’t fully understand its capabilities. Others may have them, but don’t use them as efficiently as they’re meant to be used. An overhead crane offers any company advantages by providing the main means of material movement for goods, supplies and equipment. The time and manpower saved by using an overhead bridge crane will benefit any operation. With just one operator, the crane can control the loading, moving and unloading of a variety of heavy items.
Save Floor Space
In large commercial buildings and warehouses with thousands of square feet, monthly rental costs can be staggering. Floor space is a necessary commodity, so using it wisely is important to bottom-line expenses. An overhead bridge crane is the perfect solution to save floor space. It can be installed to run on top of the girders or under-hung. It provides hook motion along three different axes to move things up and down, back and forth and side to side. Compare the efficiency to a forklift where you have an employee driving around the premises all day to move materials. The more efficient option is quite obvious.
