So simple you can move 1000kg with one hand

14-06-2011

Global Track – the world’s first pivotal crane up to 15m – is so easy to use.

How? It uses fixed side rails with an oscillating, articulating and pivoting bridge via a unique ball pivot and u-hanger.

The bridge located between the upper and lower pivots reduces sway usually found in cranes with pivoting side rails.

The shorter end carriage allows the crane to move in close to walls and little effort (one hand) is required to “push” global track because the pivot system allows the end carriage to work independently.

The loaded carriage will move with the opposing end remaining motionless until the inertia of the bridge starts it moving.

When the loaded carriage stops, the pivot system absorbs the inertia as the bridge comes to a slow standstill.

The long travel rails are directly mounted to the roof support or a stand-alone structure eliminating any need for support rods or pivot side rails.
