Dobco Equipment has a stellar reputation as a premier Canadian supplier of drills, nibblers, and other pneumatic industrial tools. But the company also carries a fine selection of lifting and material-handling systems – like the Zimmerman brand of support structures by Ingersoll Rand (IR). Examples include Zimmerman rail systems and workstation balancers, used for moving and hoisting items in plants and warehouses. This equipment is an essential backbone of any modern material-handling system, comprising devices that run on pneumatic or electrical technology, in addition to manual systems.
Five enclosed rail profiles
IR’s lineup of ergonomic handling systems includes five enclosed rail profiles constructed out of lightweight aluminum and durable steel. The manufacturer has designed them specifically to minimize the accumulation of dirt on their internal running surfaces, which makes rolling far easier for the user. The enclosed track profiles offer lightweight, precision running surfaces that result in a rolling resistance of less than one per cent.
The selection also comprises Zimmerman rail systems, tractors, trolleys, jib cranes, and arm systems, for applications such as lifting, balancing, pulling, and/or man riding. These are recommended for use in such sectors as construction, oil and gas, food processing, the marines, furniture, heavy equipment, and the automotive sector.
It is simple to assemble IR support structures. One merely bolts it together, with no need for welding. IR and Dobco supply all the accessories needed – hanger kits, end trucks, safety cables, trolleys, end stops – to help build a complete workstation crane system, either freestanding or ceiling-supported.
A key benefit of using these support structures is their level of safety – IR’s top priority. All of these lifting and material-handling equipment either has been 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 the IR line of Zimmerman rail systems and other support structures, manufacturing facilities and warehouses can move products and other items quickly, safely, and smoothly. Trust the IR name to help make workplaces more comfortable and efficient.
