Case:

Primestones is a luxury granite, quartz and marble provider with various locations throughout South Florida. They had purchased several overhead cranes from another company, which during the span of two years had faced multiple burn-outs and failures, causing downtime and irreparable damage to expensive products.
They came to us seeking a better overhead system that could tolerate continuous use and an additional floor solution for easier transfer of product on the ground. They emphasized a need to minimize material loss.

Solution:

In 2021 we manufactured and installed three 5 Ton bridge cranes with a 5 Ton wire rope hoist each, as well as two 5 ton transfer carts.
All three cranes are fully equipped with a UL508A approved control box. The crane runway spans 198 ft, properly sized for 33ft between each column to provide added support and stability. To increase safety, the customer was given the option to add a mainline disconnect operated from the pendant, enabling the operator to disconnect power in case of a stuck power relay.
By increasing the travel and lift speeds by more than 20% and motorizing the transfer carts, the customer has seen a significant increase in productivity.
Not only is his new facility much more productive, but Primestones’ final purchase price for the systems was 15% less than the competitors quote.
Primestones was highly satisfied with our equipment systems and brought us in to service all of their locations.
