Without an overhead crane you can't move heavy loads efficiently.
Eliminate downtime in your manufacture process.
Your business is capable of more.
Reduce labor and watch production soar. A single person can operate an overhead crane. Bridge cranes lower your labor cost and often opens up cramped workspaces.
Eliminate the need for moving product by hand or forklift. Overhead cranes improve the manufacturing process and increase consistency and efficiency. You can custom order a crane to fit your work area. Choose your crane type, height, and capacity.
There are some things your shop forklift cannot do. Lifting 100 tons is one of those things. A crane is more than an efficient way to move something from point A to point B. Often it is the only affordable way to lift something. Cranes typically lift material from 500 lbs to 10 tons. PWI has built overhead bridge cranes for the mining industry that lift 100 tons.
Jib Cranes provide an excellent way to hand off material from one workstation to another because they can rotate 360º.

PWI has expert crane technicians available. They'll be on standby to troubleshoot any problem and can visit onsite. You won't have to deal with the frustration of unexpected downtime.
We will work with you to build a crane that fits your budget. While a crane is an initial investment upfront, you'll get a massive return. Bridge cranes are efficient and can be operated by one person.
We will design and build an overhead crane that is custom to your needs and space. We offer many different types of overhead cranes that will fit in your workspace. You can choose from an overhead bridge crane, workstation crane, jib crane, and gantry crane. Our cranes have capacities that start with 1/4 ton and go over 100 tons.
We will provide operator training for your workers so they know how to operate a crane safely. An overhead traveling crane is often the safest way to move heavy loads within a workspace. Our team has trained 1,000s of workers.
Load capacity and span are the two primary factors considered when choosing between a single girder and double girder crane design. Our crane experts will walk you through the process of designing, building, and installing your overhead crane system that is perfect for your requirements and space.
Don't confuse double girder for dual bridge (sometimes called two bridge) overhead cranes. A dual bridge has two independently controlled bridges that move up and down the runway beam.
Usually the building structure and workspace are the primary factors between choosing top running or under running (sometimes called under-hung) bridge crane. The difference is how the bridge beams attach to runway beams. Our team will work with you to design and build an overhead crane system that fits your workspace.
Our headquarters is in Nappanee, Indiana and our crews install overhead cranes across North America.
The function of an overhead crane is to lift and move extremely heavy loads in an area. Overhead cranes often replace other means of lifting loads such as forklifts.
Yes, performing routine inspections and maintenance on your crane system is very important in minimizing downtime and excessive repair costs.
Cranes should be inspected daily, monthly, and annually. Each interval has a different level of inspection criteria to ensure the proper maintenance and function of the crane is being maintained.
We first approached PWI for solutions to an overhead crane design in our new addition. Their team came up with a state of the art system which fit our budget.
