Our customer required a lifting solution to operate within a low headroom environment that could assist in tool handling within their manufacturing operations.
The customer required a lifting solution to operate within an environment with limited space and particularly reduced headroom. In order to provide the customer with the span and lifting capacity they needed we designed and manufactured an underbraced jib crane to fit into the facilities low headroom ceiling.
In order to properly plan and design a lifting solution unique to our customers specific requirements, our technical sales team conducted a site visit which enabled us to quote and cost the project fully and our CAD design engineers prepared drawings of the lifting equipment in situ so the customer's technical site teams could review and approve prior to manufacturing work commencing.
Our client operates within the automotive industry and they required a lifting
solution to assist in the handling of their tooling. The best solution available to accommodate our customers needs and manage the operating space and ceiling room challenges, our design engineers designed an underbraced column mounted jib crane that could fit within the specified operational position. The jib crane offers a lifting capacity of 500kg a radius of 2m and a 2.2m height to underside of beam, and was installed complete with a Eurochain VR Electric Chain Hoist and Push Travel Trolley so that the load can be manoeuvred along the jib cranes beam.
"Our customer had a lifting requirement but was unsure of what lifting and handling system would be best suited to fill their very unique lifting needs. We understood from the initial enquiry that there were space restrictions and a low headroom solution would be required but our technical sales team's site visit informed our skilled design engineers and we were able to design a suitable solution that was manufactured in-house. We're proud to have another satisfied customer and to have designed and manufactured another quality lifting solution."
