Lightweight Crane supports truss for increased capacity.
Press Release Summary:
April 21, 2014 - Model C250 uses Slant-Truss, which bolts to top of G-Rail™ aluminum rail profile to increase capacity in long spans; cranes with spans of <4 m and cranes with capacity of <250 kg do not need to be trussed. In combination with Slant-Truss, extended spans can enable accelerated movement without tractor drives. Slant-Truss also reduces required columns supporting runways. With possible spans over 9 m, C250 G-Rail profile offers 250 kg capacity.

Givens Engineering Develops C250 Lightweight Crane with Truss
Press release date: April 18, 2014
The C250 G-Rail profile has a capacity of 250kg and is very light by itself. In combination with the Slant-Truss, long spans can be unusually lightweight, making fast movement possible, without tractor drives. A beneficial effect of the Slant-Truss is fewer columns supporting the runways. Spans over 9m are possible.
