Rail Systems

Rail Systems and Workstation Cranes

Enclosed rail forms the backbone of any material handling system. Hercules SLR offers five enclosed rail profiles in lightweight aluminum and durable steel.

The enclosed rail design reduces the accumulation of dirt and grime on the internal running surfaces, thus reducing rolling effort. These enclosed track profiles feature lightweight, precision running surfaces with less than 1% rolling resistance.

All the accessories, such as hanger kits, end trucks, trolleys, safety cables, and end stops, are provided to construct a complete ceiling supported or freestanding workstation crane system. The entire system is easily bolted together and requires no welding to assemble.

Ceiling Supported Workstation Cranes

Ingersoll Rand offers ceiling supported workstation cranes with spans up to 30 ft (9 m) and capacities up to 3000 lb (1360 kg). Ceiling supported workstation cranes utilize rugged steel or lightweight aluminum enclosed track rail in one of five profiles. Ingersoll Rand's premium articulating bridge crane design reduces the force required to position the load.

Free Standing Workstation Cranes

Ingersoll Rand offers both standard and custom free standing workstation cranes. Standard systems have the option of 10 ft (3 m), 12 ft (3.7 m), or 14 ft (4.3 m) underclearance, and range in size from small 10 ft (3 m) runway systems with 5 ft (1.5 m) bridges and 500 lb (227 kg) capacity to large 105 ft (32 m) runway systems with 21 ft (6 m) bridges and 2000 lb (907 kg) capacity. These systems allow for the placement of workstation rail systems independent of existing overhead structural steel.

Monorail Systems

Ingersoll Rand Monorail systems utilize the same profiles and components as workstation cranes. Monorails are typically used for single-axis transfer applications in small areas. Curved rail sections are available for navigating obstructions.

Air & Electrification Supply

Ingersoll-Rand offers both air and electrical power supply kits. Air supply kits are available in both 3/8” and ½”. Kits are available with a filter/regulator for use with Balancers and manipulator systems. We also supply air supply kits without filter/regulator for use with oil-based pneumatic systems such as hoists and tractor drives. The air supply assembly keeps coil hose and electrical supply in place and allows for the complete utilization of the bridge and runway system. The electrical supply kits are available to supplement virtually any type of electrical equipment. Insul-8 electrification systems are available

Rail Profiles

Our aluminum rail profiles are extruded from 6063-T6 and anodized for a smooth, clean, corrosive-free surface. The aluminum rail is lightweight, and available in 3 profiles (ZRAT, ZRA1, ZRA2) up to spans of 30 ft (9 m). Our steel rail profiles are rolled from 9 guage, A569 hot-rolled steel and powder coated for appearance and a corrosive-free surface. The steel rail is rugged and economical, and available in 2 profiles (ZRS2, ZRS3) in spans up to 24 ft (7 m). For increased spans and capacities our ZRS2, ZRS3 and ZRA2 profiles are available with strongbacking.

Rail System Components

Ingersoll Rand Rail Systems consist of hanger kits, rails, end stops, splice kits, end trucks, and trolleys. These components can be configured to meet a vast array of application needs. This flexibility means you don't have to sacrifice functionality, which is common with pre-packaged workstation cranes.
