  TC American Patented Track Monorails & Cranes
Twin Cities Monorail is now TC American
Monorail systems are commonly used in manufacturing and warehousing of items. Monorails can be used to bring products through the entire manufacturing process without the need for it to ever touch the ground. Systems can be as simple as a traveling hoist, or as complex as a custom engineered crane. Monorails have the advantage over ground based systems in that they take up no floor space allowing you the most productivity from every square foot of your facility. Monorail opens a whole new world of possibility to the savvy plant manager.
Patented Track and Monorail Components
200 Series 2.00" Rail:
These light capacity cranes and monorails easily handle loads up to two tons. They offer the ultimate in flexibility, versatility, and economy. The 200 Series cranes and monorails deliver maximum strength and minimum roll resistance. They can be hand propelled, gravity or motor driven.

325 Series 3.25" Rail:
The demands of industry for a broad line of hard working material handling equipment is the basis behind our 325 Series. It's complete, versatile, and expandable. It's the right move for transporting and positioning loads to 20 tons or greater. The 325 series rail systems are now also available on the Spanmaster Work Center Cranes.

400 Series 4.00" Rail:
The 400 Series is equally balanced between weight and strength.  The 400 Series equipment can be configured to meet any complicated track layout. The 400 Series is compatible with most older 4" systems.

450 Series 4.50" Rail:
Extra heavy loads, extra duty cycles and extra long spans require the 450 Series. Structurally engineered to assure practical overhead materials handling, the 450 Series is capable of moving loads up to 40 tons.

The design of the TC/American trolley utilizes a hanger system that allows for a small amount of movement reducing stress on the trolley wheels increasing the life of the trolley and rail while improving the overall smoothness of the movement.

TC/American manufactures a wide variety of electrically powered drives to help transport loads on monorail systems. Drives use hardened steel wheels, heavy duty gearing and motors providing years of dependable service with minimal maintenance.

TC/American crane and monorail systems can be joined end to end through the use of interlocks. This gives you the ability to transfer loads from one system to another without the need to change from one hoist to another.
TC/American has the ability to manufacture a wide variety of overhead cranes. Our cranes use the same Patented Track technology that our monorail systems use ensuring serviceability and long life.

TC/American can bend the Patented Track rail into a curved section allowing your system to travel unobstructed around corners and curves without any need to transfer loads.
Switches allow the option of switching trolleys, tractors and hoists between two or three different lines on a monorail system. This eliminated the need to transfer loads from one hoist to another in the transport process.
