Our customer is a manufacturer of innovative plastic bearing solutions who required a safer solution to lift and handle a component as part of their manufacturing process.

Using our understanding of the customers requirements and their intended application we explored a variety of different options and worked with our customer to find the most appropriate lifting solution for their operational needs. Consideration was given to a potential Jib Crane solution configured with a chain hoist but this didn't meet all of our customers requirements. The main focus was the customer's need for a lifting system that offered one handed operation so that they could eliminate the need for manual handling and streamline their operational efficiencies.
