Unveiling the Benefits of Crane-Assisted Machinery Installation in Manufacturing
From milling machines to industrial mixers, the manufacturing sector relies on a range of equipment to aid the production process. However, the significant weight of this industrial machinery, coupled with often limited floor space, can pose issues when it comes to equipment installation. Enter the crane! Designed to hoist and transport heavy materials with precision and efficiency, cranes help make short work of setting up new manufacturing machinery.
Allow us to share six benefits of renting a crane when installing manufacturing equipment.
1. Power and reach
Industrial equipment is often exceptionally heavy and difficult to maneuver. However, with lifting capacities of up to 13,220lbs, no manufacturing machine is too heavy for Preston Rentals’ fleet of cranes. While compact in size, our range of mini and hydraulic crawler cranes also have significant pick and carry capacities. The SuperCrane™ 1485, for instance, can pick and carry an impressive 4,400lbs. This makes our crane range perfectly suited to lifting machinery from a truck and then carrying it inside the building for installation. In addition to being able to hoist materials to significant heights, our range of lifting equipment has small footprints and impressive working ranges, making them capable of accessing difficult-to-reach areas.
Precision is of the utmost importance when installing new equipment as there is the risk of causing damage to the machine, personnel, or to the site. Our cranes facilitate the safe and precise transportation and optimum positioning of new machinery so it can be connected to the required systems. At Preston Rentals, each and every lift is carefully considered in order to enhance safety and efficiency.
Cranes replace the labor-intensive and time-consuming task of staff off-loading machinery and moving it to the designated area. With your rented crane, operated by a certified professional, this precious time can instead be spent completing other necessary tasks, enhancing productivity.
4. Expert guidance
A crane rental service like Preston Rentals is staffed with specialists who can find the best crane to suit your project needs. As experts in their field, Preston Rentals can direct you to the most suitable crane for your needs and outline the safety requirements of operation.
5. Increased safety
The risk of workplace injury is increased when staff are required to lift heavy loads. There’s also the risk of manufacturing machinery being dropped, causing damage to other equipment or the site. Renting an operated crane greatly reduces the chance of accidents and safeguards everyone involved.
6. Cost savings
As our fleet of cranes can execute your heavy lifting needs quickly and safely, we can have your new machine up and running in a fraction of the time it would take for staff to pick and carry it into the facility. This minimizes the amount of downtime experienced, reducing the costs of disruption to production lines. As cranes carry out all the lifting and positioning operations, the risk of costly workplace accidents is minimized too.
