Lifting Farm Implements at an Existing Facility.
Degelman Ind., a manufacturer of agriculture implements, was re-purposing an existing structure to meet their growing needs. With a new service bay, they needed a better solution for moving their products in and out of the building as well as lifting them for servicing purposes.
The building hadn’t been built as a load-bearing structure so an alternative had to be developed that would maximize floor space, be free standing, and at the same time, not obstruct any of the existing entrances or workspaces.
Acculift designed a 3 ton overhead bridge crane solution that maximized the lifting area without obstructing any points of entry or working areas. A double column support system with carefully selected placements maximized the floor space while giving the crane the required structural integrity to lift and move large farm implements in the shop. A multi-speed hoist system allows for quick and precise movements of even their largest pieces of equipment by one operator via a remote control pendant.
