MODULAR RUNWAY OFFERS ALTERNATIVE TO LOW CAPACITY OVERHEAD CRANES

Columbus McKinnon Corp. has unveiled the 2-, 3-, 5-, 7.5- and 10-ton capacity Freedom Frame from Abell-Howe, suited to conditions and facilities where overhead crane installation is not practical or structurally permissible. The free-standing Free Freedom system requires no tie-offs to the building structure and, with bolted versus welded connections, is designed for easy disassembly and relocating. Runway electrification (right or left) is V-contact style bar. Options include Yale girder crane kits. Available for quick delivery in standard modular configurations, typically one- to four-bay, or as a custom engineered system to accommodate special requirements.
