Lifting Equipment Management in the UK
Take a look at some of the material handling products we have on offer and see which can benefit you:
The Bectel Balance arm has been developed for a variety of applications with a range of capacities up to 250KG. The versatile unit can be tailored for a range of application with different reach, lift height and strokes. As the unit has no counter balance weights it can be positioned up against a wall. It can also be supplied with a mobile pallet base. A range of controls are available including lever or twist grip operation. These can be mounted to suit the application and gives the operator weightless control when handling a variety of different weights. A pre-set load balance control is also available for handling a limited number of known loads.
Instrument panel handling
The manipulator unloads the completed instrument panels from the assembly conveyor and then transports them onto a transport stillage.
The Pneumast hoist is a pneumatically actuated rigid mast hoist which has been developed as a replacement for the new obsolete Levomat electro/hydraulic rigid mast hoist. It can be supplied to suit a variety of applications with a range of capacities up to 250KG and strokes up to 250mm. The unique design allows the unit to be continuously rotated through 360 degrees. A range of controls are available ranging from a proportional valve, actuated either by levers or twist grip which will be mounted to suit the application and gives the operator infinitely variable control when handling a variety of loads, to a pre-set load balance control which gives the operator weightless control when handling a limited number of known loads. Either option gives safe and reliable control.
The bottom mounting block can be designed to accommodate any existing manipulators or alternatively a range of standard and custom made effectors can be fitted to the unit. The Pneumast itself can be mounted to existing crane systems or arms. The unit requires very little preventative maintenance and has very few wearable items which mean that the recommended spares are kept to a minimum.
Roll tilt manipulator
The RTM clamps the core of the roll and it rotates through 90 degrees. The probe is inserted into the core of the roll and the expanding jaws are actuated. The unit can now be raised and the roll rotated.
The manipulator clamps around the diameter of the machined component and rotates it through 90 degrees. The components are unloaded from the CNC machine in a horizontal altitude and rotate through 90 degrees before loading into a hydraulic press for the final operation. Once complete, the manipulator transfers the component to a pallet.
Upenders rotate heavy loads from horizontal to vertical. They can also be used to load components onto pallets and incorporated into an automated conveyor system.
Vacuum lifting frame
Vacuum is an in-expensive option for handling a variety of components.
These mobile, battery-operated lifts are a modular design which can be adapted to suit customer requirements with a wide variety of lifting attachments. We also have another design which are manual and battery operated lifts - a modular design, which can be adapted to suit customer requirements with a wide variety of lifting attachments.
