Maximization of floor space by means of direct installation on existing structure. High flexibility of operation in all directions. Easy and fast to operate and also free from noise.  

Bridge Cranes Bridge cranes are used in a wide range of applications from light duty to the heaviest industrial applications and are fabricated to meet your local codes and regulations.  
Top Running, Double Girder Overhead Crane: The most space efficient and heavy duty configuration is the double girder, top running crane system.
Under Running, Single Girder Overhead Crane Single girder designs allow you to be cost effective without compromising performance.
Top Running Overhead Cranes vs. Under Running Overhead Cranes Determining which type of overhead crane is based mainly on two factors: Capacity – Top running cranes have a higher capacity than under running Support Structure –Top running cranes require a stronger supporting structure and more headroom above the beams.  Under running cranes may are suspended directly from the overhead steel (for lighter cranes).

Pre-Start Health and Safety Reviews

PSR's are required when new equipment or modified equipment are introduced into the workplace. The workplace and work procedures are reviewed by a professional engineer who is familiar with the equipment and processes that is able to verify the general conformity with the requirements of the Occupational Health and Safety Act and Safety Act of Ontario and the Regulations for Industrial Establishments .


N.D.T. - Non Destructive Testing

NDT is an examination of products for defects/cracks. Modulus employs a wide range of analysis techniques to evaluate the properties of material without causing damage. In areas where welds are used to join two or more metal parts, non-destructive testing is imperative because welds may encounter loads that may cause the structure to fail if not created to proper specification.
