Han-Tek Material Handling Solutions - Crane Modernizations

Crane Modernizations

Whatever the situation, Han-Tek can help you modernize or upgrade your equipment to like-new standards to ensure the highest level of performance and safety. We can boost your crane’s power and control systems to improve its flexibility and functionality. Han-Tek can also recondition or rebuild virtually any system component, from tracks to spans, gantries to hoists. Once we understand your situation, We do it all in-house to ISO standards, which ensures the highest level of quality and the fastest delivery.

Top-Running Single- and Double-Girder Bridge Cranes

Han-Tek top-running single- and double-girder girder cranes with very low headroom are the smart choice for unlimited spans and capacities. They are extremely versatile, allowing for higher capacity and a wide range of special equipment and service access, for larger spans and capacities.

Under-Running Single- and Double-Girder Bridge Cranes

Han-Tek under-running cranes offer a combination of close headroom and side approach options, and in many cases can be hung from the existing building structure. For longer spans, Han-Tek also offers double- girder cranes. Free-standing and interlocking systems also available.

Furnace Loading Cranes

Han-Tek has specialized in the loading and unloading of large and unwieldly high-temperature furnaces, with temperatures of well over 1,000 degrees in the processing of specialty metals. Products loaded into these furnaces are often very large and unwieldy.

In this case, standard, off-the-shelf cranes and hoists just will not work. Han-Tek has more than a decade of experience in the design, engineering, installation, training, and service of cranes for this highly specialized market.

Workstation Cranes

In production environments, employee health and safety is critical. Han-Tek can analyze your workflow and design a worker-friendly system to help improve safety, efficiency, practicality, and cost effectiveness. Han-Tek can recommend a portfolio of ergonomic materials handling devices that will help improve workplace performance and productivity – utilizing electronic or pneumatic balancing systems, vacuum lifting, or enclosed-track crane systems to carry the loads. Mechanical grippers and lift-and-tilt tables can also be integrated to minimize repetitive-motion injuries.

Crane/Hoist Service and Support

We know how costly equipment downtime can be. Han-Tek provides 24/7 emergency and preventive maintenance service to keep you up and running. Our factory trained, OSHA-certified field-service technicians bring you a comprehensive range of services that will keep your materials handling systems – cranes and hoists – operating at peak performance.

Han-Tek can support equipment relocation, modification, and upgrade; preventive maintenance programs; personnel training; access to our full-service parts department; and more.

5 Tips for Improved Crane Productivity

#1. Plan for Cranes Right from the Start

When you design a new building, or are planning an addition or upgrade to an existing building, it’s easy to overlook the crane system. Too often, buildings are being completed before final design and installation processes of cranes are determined. Early communication and coordination can save you in the long run.

#2. You Don’t Have to Raise the Roof to Lift Your Product

If you have a low ceiling, and you are concerned that you cannot obtain a sufficient hook height, Han-Tek can design a bridge crane that can get the job done. No one can get the hook higher than Han-Tek.

#3. Don’t Limit Yourself to a Couple of Operating Speeds, and Don’t Leave Safety Solely in the Operator’s Hands

Han-Tek’s bridge cranes come with Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) control for all motions, which gives operators the pinpoint control necessary to move large, heavy, yet extremely delicate parts with more ease and eliminate defects or damage to parts. And because Han-Tek cranes come with collision avoidance, you need not worry about operator reaction time to prevent accidents.

#4. Make Sure Your Crane Supplier has a Proven Process in Place

Han-Tek’s ISO procedures require checklists to be completed throughout the entire crane project, so that cranes are complete and ready to go when they’re being put on the truck and shipped out to your facility. ISO procedures eliminate time that would be needed for modifying and debugging the crane in the field during and after installation.

#5. Don’t Get More Crane than You Need

At Han-Tek, we analyze your specific needs and only then recommend a solution right for you. One that ensures the safest, most cost efficient, and best process of lifting and moving your product.
