End Trucks

IMS can provide either catalog type end trucks for your bridge crane or a set of custom end trucks for a particular application. Our catalog top running end truck line ranges from 6” diameter through 21” diameter. Our custom end truck capabilities are limitless, whether it be a 24” bogie set with 90 degree MCB capsules or a 6” custom underhung set for a spark resistant application. Our experience in the design and manufacture of end trucks for the material handling industry is quite extensive.
