Although Dobco Equipment is known as a top supplier of pneumatic industrial tools, like drills and nibblers, the distributor also offers a good selection of lifting and material-handling systems. This includes Zimmerman support structures from Ingersoll Rand (IR), such as rail systems and workstation balancers for hoisting and moving items in warehouse and factory environments.
IR’s line of rail systems and related equipment is an essential backbone of any modern material-handling system, with products running on pneumatic or electric technology, as well as manual systems.
Very low rolling resistance
Dobco, a preferred IR distributor, offers five enclosed rail profiles built out of lightweight aluminum and durable steel. These profiles are designed specifically to minimize the accumulation of dirt on their internal running surfaces, which makes rolling a lot easier for users. The lightweight, precision running surfaces on the enclosed track profiles result in a rolling resistance of less than one per cent.
This group of products also includes rail systems, tractors, trolleys, jib cranes, and arm systems, for such applications as lifting, balancing, pulling, and/or man riding. IR recommends them for use in such industries as construction, oil and gas, food processing, the marines, furniture, heavy equipment, and the automotive sector.
IR support structures are easy to assemble. Users simply bolt them together, without any need for welding. To help users build a complete workstation crane system, whether freestanding or supported by the ceiling, the manufacturer supplies all the accessories required, including hanger kits, end trucks, trolleys, safety cables, and end stops.
One major advantage of using these support structures is their level of safety, which is always IR’s top priority. The manufacturer makes sure that all of its lifting and material-handling equipment either is certified by the Monorail Manufacturers Association or complies with the MH27.2 standard by the American National Standards Institute (Specifications for Enclosed Track Underhung Cranes and Monorail Systems).
With IR’s line of support structures, manufacturing companies and warehouses can move products and other materials quickly, smoothly, and safely. This is one of many examples of how IR creates comfortable, efficient workplaces.
