Gantry Cranes Save Time & Prevent Injuries

01 November 2017

TAWI USA is proud to be featured in the latest issue of MHI Solutions magazine. Our Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Mike Lee, explains the benefits of using a gantry crane system.

Products are moved around within a facility constantly. When workers lift and carry the products manually, they become susceptible to serious risk of injury. Additionally, if the items are exceptionally heavy, it may take multiple workers to perform these tasks. A safer and more economical way to move products around is by using a gantry crane system.

A gantry crane system consists of overhead metal tracks combined with lift assists, cranes and vacuum lifting systems. Gantry crane systems can lift heavy weights but are also popular for lifting as little as 20 pounds.

TAWI provides a gantry crane system consisting of an aluminum track that can be used to move lighter products. Employers would rather their workers not lift products of any weight, in order to prevent injury. With the lighter goods, TAWI provides gantry crane systems and lift assists that are extremely fast, lightweight and compact in size.

Gantry Cranes Reduce Injuries & Manpower

These gantry crane systems help reduce injuries by taking away the manual lifting part of the job and by making the gantry crane systems just as light and easy to use as possible. Workers go from a huge injury potential to almost an elimination of any risk.

TAWI lifts can make the job faster and the operator more productive, but the safety aspect is the driving force behind the investment for a gantry crane system. Gantry crane systems are easy to understand and operate and operators pick up the use of the lightweight gantry crane systems right away. Jobs that formerly took two workers can be done by one in less time than before.

Using systems to do both heavy lifting and repetitive light lifting saves workers time and potential pain.
