- Perfect for the operation
A bespoke overhead crane or industrial manipulator is like a tailored shirt, it’s made just for you. Bespoke material handling solutions enable an organization to functionally operate in a systematic approach to handling every piece of material in their production and distribution chain — from raw materials to finished products. The pacing length, arm positioning, power source, air brake options, air swivels, or rotation stops of the crane are optimum to the operation’s needs. When you customize all these factors according to your operation, it gives you maximum productivity as the overhead crane will enable faster lifting of materials.
While it is a common conception that bespoke equipment costs more, it might end up being more cost-effective.
