When dealing with lifting loads, a closed track workstation crane offers a higher rate of productivity when compared to a similar I-Beam design for cranes. The amount of force required to move the bridge is far lower than what an I-Beam design would require, and for many applications, the increase in productivity rate alone can justify the cost requirements for purchasing a crane.
In addition, the ease of movement and positioning allows a greater percentage of the workforce to be able to handle the loads in an ergonomic manner. As an example, less than 10% of people would be able to handle a 4,000-pound load on a manual I-Beam crane, but using a workstation crane that number can move up over 90%. This allows you to utilize your workforce more effectively and reduces the risk of worker injury because of the improved ergonomics.
