New Altrac Crane System From Bomac

Health and safety in the workplace is a vital issue for the manufacturing industry but the new developments in crane design means manufacturers are not only looking at cranes as a safety device but also as a way of increasing productivity.

Recent trends in crane design indicate a move towards more ergonomic and lightweight crane system, which allow workers to move loads safely, easily and quickly.

Manufacturers are choosing to install several workstation cranes throughout the workshop instead of a single larger crane, enabling operators to work on smaller, repetitive lifting jobs as well as the heavier jobs usually undertaken by bigger cranes.

An example of this is a glass company who needed a crane to lift glass panels up to 500kg in weight. Initially they [were planning to install] a 3t SWL motorised crane and spent $30,000 having a new concrete floor poured to handle the load.
