    CaseStudy

    DeLuxe Building Systems, Inc., a world leading manu-facturer of commercial modular buildings operates a 250,000 squarefoot manufacturing facility located in Berwick, Pennsylvania. Con-struction of the modular buildings takes place in several stages inlarge warehouses located on their property. The construction is startto finish, where stages include working with raw materials, and as-sembly of floors, walls, and ceilings. The finished product is a

    SPANCO Cranes Bring Efficiency

    to Modular Building LinesBy Michael Evanko

    modular living space complete with plumbing hook-up. Thesefinished living spaces are integrated into apartment buildings,student housing, and condominiums.

    Recently the company shifted the construction of modular wallsfrom lumber to steel. This shift required the creation of new pro-duction lines at their facility. In one of the new production areas,6500lb. bundles of raw steel would be shipped to the facility and

  • then need to be cut on a large ban saw tospecific lengths before going into paint pro-duction. The owner considered using exist-ing equipment like Combilifts or forklifts tomove the steel bundles to the saw, but due tothe length of the steel, and the tight spacesaround the machinery, using this equipmentwas unsafe and inefficient. Looking for aneffective material handling solution, the gen-eral manager did some research online andlocated the SPANCO, Inc. website. On thesite he read about SPANCOs ability to en-gineer custom overhead lifting solutions.Customization was important to him andwith his 60 years of experience in the mod-ular building industry, he had a clear visionfor the production line and standard ap-proaches simply wouldnt work. The ownercontacted Schuylkill Material Handling, alocal SPANCO distributor, and asked themto come out and look at their facility.

    When the SPANCO dealer looked at thesteel cutting application, he determined thatit would be serviced well by a SPANCOPF Gantry Crane, but the facility ceilingwas too low to accommodate the size PFGantry Crane needed to lift the steel bun-dles. Schuylkill Material Handling sentsome sketches and measurements of theapplication to SPANCOs engineering de-partment. SPANCOs engineering depart-ment reviewed the project and quicklydeveloped a custom solution. By workingwith the owners vision and looking at theexisting building limitations, SPANCO en-gineering was able to design a custom mo-torized dual-tied SPANCO PF GantryCrane. This custom crane was essentiallytwo small SPANCO PF Gantry Cranes tiedtogether with upper and lower steel chan-nels to create an application specific material handling solution.

    After the system was installed bySchuylkill Material Handling, Deluxe Build-ings was pleased with the operation of thesystem. The crane has an overall length of25 and a height of 11-4 and is power dri-ven by motors on all four gantry legs. Thewheels run on two v-groove tracks that aremounted to the floor. When steel bundlesare ready for cutting, they are taken off thestock pile by a Combilift and placed at thehead of the cutting line. The crane operatoruses a push button control pendant that ismounted on the side of the gantry to easilyposition the crane over the steel. The pen-dant also allows him to simultaneously con-trol two synchronized 3 ton power driven

    chain hoists that are attached to a magnet lifter. The hoists lower themagnet lifter to the steel bundle at which point they grab the bundlefor lifting. The hoists then raise the steel bundle and the gantry ispowered to move the load down the tracks towards a conveyer thatfeeds the ban saw. The new crane creates an efficiency that couldnot be achieved with a Combilift and forklift.

    After the successful installation of the gantry crane, DeluxeBuildings general manager expressed two other locations at thefacility where he had a vision for a safer and more efficientworkflow. Both locations involved an application where workersneeded to place Sheetrock onto modular building frames. TheSheetrock ranged in lengths from 8-12, with thicknesses of3/8-1/2, much too heavy for a worker to lift safely withoutsome form of equipment. After seeing SPANCOs sales catalog,the general manager liked the lifting versatility offered by aSPANCO Articulating Jib Crane. Because both applications re-quired workers picking different size Sheetrock off of multi-ple stacks in various locations, a lifting system with flexibilitywas required. SPANCO Articulating Jib Cranes have 360 ro-tating articulating arms providing multiple circular areas of lift-ing with arms that extend outward and fold inward. Afterevaluating both tasks, Schuylkill Material Handling recom-mended a 500lb. capacity SPANCO Freestanding ArticulatingJib Crane for one, and a 500lb. capacity SPANCO CeilingMounted Articulating Jib Crane for the other. After both sys-tems were installed, Deluxe Buildings again saw an increase

    in their production efficiency.Both cranes are used in coordination with a 250lb. vacuum

    lifter to allow workers to easily maneuver and position Sheetrockon the modular structures. The freestanding articulating jib wascustom designed by SPANCO engineering to include an invertedknuckle boom in order to provide more headroom. The cranealso utilizes piped air power for the vacuum lifter. SPANCO isthe only manufacturer of articulating jib cranes that internallypipes air power.

    The inclusion of SPANCO overhead lifting solutions atDeluxe Buildings has greatly improved the safety and efficiencyof their modular building production lines. In an industry wherequicker construction translates into a greater return on invest-ment for their clients, having an efficient work flow is critical.SPANCO overhead lifting products are engineered for quality,durability, and reliability. If you have an application that re-quires overhead lifting and our standard product line wontwork, SPANCO has the experience and know-how to providethe perfect custom solution.

    Air Technical Industries has developed and built a very unique and versatile mobile Telescopic Mast JibCrane with OMNI-DIRECTIONAL mobility for handling various components that need to be lifted duringthe aircraft manufacturing process. The large prefabricated components weighing up to 3,500 pounds needto be lifted up to 36 high, transported into position, and articulated into the precise orientation for assem-bly. ATIs stationary Telescopic Mast Jib Cranes have been used in other similar operations. The new con-cept of modular design requires much more flexibility and OMNI-DIRECTIONAL mobility. ATI developeda new design of Telescopic Mast Jib Crane with Omni-directional mobility that enables the production crewto reach over, under and if necessary, into the airplane to position components during the assembly process.The new crane model with unique Omni-directional mobility allows the crane to travel in any direction 360and it can turn within its own measurements (similar to the way a military tank turns). The cranes mast, arotating turret, is capable of swinging left and right fully loaded. The telescopic section of the mast is chromeplated for smooth travel and to prevent corrosion. It telescopes up to 36 under-hook height. The beam ofthe crane has 13.5 of reach and is equipped with dual hoists, one with a motorized trolley and the other apush/pull trolley to float, accommodating movement and articulation of the load. In case of power failure,systems are all designed to hold the load securely and all functions stop and lock in its present position.Other safety features include: on-board fire extinguisher, battery monitoring gauge, audible alarm system,traveling amber warning light, emergency stop, and overload protection.

  • UNIST, Inc., introduces the LVSS spray nozzle which was de-signed to consistently apply small amounts of fluid in either a fanor cone spray pattern. The nozzles are operated with a com-pressed air input signal and an integral valve at the nozzle tipwhich allows the pressurized fluid to flow whenever the air sig-nal is present. The volume of both the fluid and atomizing airare controlled with independent precision needle valves. Thenozzles can be combined with a UNIST SPR-2000 programma-ble controller and a pressure tank to form a complete system.The SPR-2000 allows precise control of spray frequency andduration for up to 22 independent LVSS nozzles. Designed pri-marily to spray lubricants, the LVSS nozzles are commonly usedin metal forming operations, machining, assembly applications,or any place a repeatable amount of lubricant needs to besprayed. Formed in 1957, UNIST, Inc. is the leading manufac-turer of environmentally friendly lubrication systems designedto reduce fluid consumption while improving operational effi-ciency in metal cutting and metal forming operations.
