ABUS Crane Systems provided workstation jib cranes and overhead cranes for a company’s production lines within a tight timeframe.

Terex Benford took over the lease on a new facility in Coventry and the empty shell required quickly fitting out with production lines that would hit the previous factory output of dumper trucks, road rollers and back-hoe loaders within a week of going live.

Within a very tight timescale, 60 workstation jib cranes and 14 overhead cranes were supplied and installed, ensuring that each worker had his own crane.

This flexibility meant that the production line process would never be slowed waiting for a crane to become available.

The experiment in productivity was immediately successful as previous output numbers were indeed achieved within five days on the first of the lines to be installed.

ABUS offered a four-year basic guarantee and ISO9001 manufacturing quality.

There was enough flexibility within the programme to allow Terex continuous re-designs of certain production areas even during the contract.

ABUS also provided Terex with its showpiece installation such as the service lines delivering electricity and compressed air, which are carried above the cranes, ensuring no trip hazards or floor digging requirements at low level.

This also makes the future repositioning of cranes much more straightforward.
