Handling Systems offers both ‘A’ frame style monorail supports (floor mounted

A monorail system consists of a single straight or curved I beam supported at each end (middle supports may be necessary depending on size) with a trolley and hoist to travel back and forth for material handling. Monorail systems are used to aid in material handling were x,y,z movement like that in a bridge crane is not needed. Most commonly used over a row of machines, in hallways or passages, through paint booths, or to assist in truck loading. Monorail systems are available with festooning packages to keep the air hose or power cord out of the way of the load and user.
