Overhead Cranes meet Technology
In many instances the cost of an overhead bridge crane can be largely offset with savings from not renting mobile cranes in the construction of a facility that uses a lot of heavy process equipment.
An overhead crane, commonly called a bridge crane, is a type of crane found in industrial environments. An overhead crane consists of parallel runways with a traveling bridge spanning the gap. A hoist, the lifting component of a crane, travels along the bridge. Unlike mobile or construction cranes, overhead cranes are typically used for either manufacturing or maintenance applications, where efficiency or downtime are critical factors.
The important lesson is that even though crane manufacturers design an industrial ruggedized device for global distribution, there are enormous differences in the electrical environment in which they are installed. By no means does that negate the quality of the device, it only goes to further in force that regardless of the superiority of the design of any electronic equipment in the 21st century there remains the necessary steps of providing
the optimal 21st century surge protection device. That device is Sinetamer®.
