Monorail Overhead Cranes

A monorail crane is a type of crane that acts as a substitute for conventional cranes and conveyor belts. These cranes are mostly used to relocate materials or products within a limited area. Such sites could be a factory or throughout the working station. Monorail crane design is simple and can be compatible with the structure of the building without major changes.


The cranes can enter into the building or factory via the ceiling columns or added monorail beam to support the metal trolley. The trolley can run on the beam or hang below depending on the building's ceiling elevation and the required lifting capability. A monorail crane hoist is attached on the trolley using a steel cable or chain for lifting, lowering and suspending the load to the designated location.

The monorail crane has a small cross-section and a high utilization rate of the roadway section space; it can be used for continuous non-reloading transportation in flat and inclined roadways, and its transport load is not limited by the conditions of the floor, and it can run on various vertical curves, horizontal curves and complex curves; Monorail cranes provide four directions of hook movement: up/down via the hoist and forward/back via the monorail beam.


  • Flexible
    Widely used on variety of facilities, the cranes' systems are also easy to modify in case of expansion requirements or changes to fit the business space available.
  • Customisable
    Monorail cranes are easy to customise according to the features of a production line. They can move through curves, slopes outdoors and even between different works stations. Users can also add other features such as below the hook attachments and other specialised tools to help in handling a variety of loads.
  •  Cost-effective
    High site utilization, large working range, sufficient space area
    Monorail crane is the most effective in production applications where materials are repetitively moved from one point to another. The monorail hoist and trolley run on a single stationary beam—a cost-effective alternative to bridge or gantry cranes for applications that require limited lifting capacity. 
    Examples include assembly operations, transport of materials to workstations and lines where parts are blasted, painted or coated.  Monorails also serve as a material handling alternative in places that cannot accommodate a bridge crane.
