Foldable Stainless Steel Floor Crane Announced
STREETSBORO, OH - The David Round Company has announced that its Ruger Industries Division is now manufacturing foldable stainless steel floor cranes. The portable cranes retract into a compact size when not in use, to save space in storage. David Round will demonstrate the new stainless hydraulic cranes at Booth 1105 of the Interphex 2012™ pharmaceutical manufacturing trade show in May, 2012.
Floor cranes provide an ergonomic solution to many material handling challenges. They are smaller, less expensive and safer alternatives to motorized lift trucks. Narrow enough to pass through standard door openings, narrow aisles and elevators, floor cranes can be maneuvered in areas off-limits to other lifting equipment.
The new foldable floor cranes feature 100% stainless steel construction and have no painted surfaces, as paint (even FDA-approved epoxies) is not tolerated on any equipment in many clean rooms. In addition to pharmaceutical manufacturing environments, stainless portable cranes are employed in electronics manufacturing, food processing and other clean room applications.
Ruger® floor stainless foldable cranes are available with lifting capacities of 1,000 lbs. Construction is exceptionally robust, with structural tubing 1/4" to 1/2" thick, large casters and totally welded fabrication. Although Ruger portable cranes contain over twice the metal of many competitive cranes with the same lifting capacity, they are easy to manually guide and propel.
The David Round Company is a leader in material handling equipment for use in pharmaceutical environments. In addition to its Ruger hydraulic cranes, the company makes stainless steel hoists, stainless steel jib cranes, trolleys, carriers and end trucks. The company maintains a facility dedicated solely to glass bead surface treatment of stainless steel jib cranes, which provides more hygienic surfaces for clean room use.
