Dobco Equipment Ltd. serves Canadian businesses as a premier provider of pneumatic industrial tools, from drills to nibblers. Also available from the company is a broad selection of lifting and material-handling systems, including the Zimmerman brand of rail systems, workstation balancers, and other support structures by Ingersoll Rand, or IR.
Used to move and hoist items in warehouses and plants, these ergonomic handling systems provide an essential backbone for any modern material-handling system.
Minimal accumulation of dirt
Comprising devices that run on electrical or pneumatic technology, as well as manual systems, this lineup of handling systems includes five enclosed rail profiles made of lightweight aluminum and durable steel. The IR team has designed them particularly to minimize the accumulation of dirt on their internal running surfaces, which makes rolling much smoother and easier. These enclosed track profiles provide lightweight, precision running surfaces that result in less than one per cent in rolling resistance.
The selection also includes Zimmerman rail systems, tractors, trolleys, jib cranes, and arm systems, for such frequent applications as lifting, balancing, pulling, and/or man riding. These products are recommended for use in many industries, like construction, oil and gas, food processing, the marines, furniture, heavy equipment, and the automotive sector.
Assembling an IR support structure is easy. The user just bolts it together, without any need to weld. All of the required IR accessories are available from Dobco (hanger kits, end trucks, safety cables, trolleys, end stops) to help build a full workstation crane system, whether ceiling-supported or freestanding.
A major advantage of using these support structures is the level of safety, which is IR’s highest priority. All of this 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).
Manufacturing facilities and warehouses can move products and other objects quickly, smoothly, and safely with the IR line of Zimmerman rail systems and other support structures. To help make workplaces more efficient and comfortable, trust the IR name.
