Ergonomic Partners, with our parent company Tri-State Overhead Crane, manufactures overhead bridge cranes from 250 pounds to 100 tons and up to 150 foot spans. Our many years of experience in helping customers choose the right equipment is proven by the hundreds of cranes we have built and sold.

Double Girder Gantry Cranes

Patented Track Cranes
TC American Patented Track Cranes, monorails and runways are made of special steel containing a high carbon and manganese content. This makes the running surfaces extremely hard and tough due to the chemistry of the steel.
Overhead Crane Systems
Ergonomic Partners can help with your overhead bridge crane early in the project by developing a specification for the right type of equipment and working with the building architects to ensure it will fit in your building and provide the proper operation. Too many times, a bridge crane is an afterthought, and vital items such as hook height and floor coverage are sacrificed due to poor planning. We can provide top running bridge cranes as follows: Single Girder Top Running Bridge Cranes up to 20 ton capacity with a 120 foot span and Double Girder Top Running Bridge Cranes up to 100 ton capacity 150 foot span.
Typically, top running overhead systems are used in more demanding applications, especially double girder top running bridge cranes. We can provide overhead bridge cranes to go into clean rooms, explosive environments, molten metal handling, and other demanding environments. If a typical bridge crane will not fit your application, we can provide cranes such as single and double leg gantry cranes. Whether you need a manual, electric or air powered bridge crane, we can provide a solution.
In addition to the bridge crane, we can provide the runway structure to work in conjunction with a new building or an existing building. Some options for runways may include:
- Completely Freestanding (very good for existing structures or light metal buildings) - top or under running design overhead cranes.
- Freestanding but tied back to the building structure (in buildings with some substance - new or existing buildings) - top or under running design bridge crane.
- Suspended from your building (typically new buildings) - under running design overhead bridge crane.
- Set on haunches (typically new building construction) - top running system.
All runways are designed by a professional engineer and designed per CMAA, ANSI, and AISC specifications. These runways can be stamped by a professional engineer. If you are looking at an under running bridge crane, we recommend a patented track system from TC/American.
