Manufacturer of Commercial and Industrial Hose
A Ceiling Mounted Work Station Crane with four G-Forces™ is used to lift large diameter reels of hose from four conveyor lines and then stacks them onto tiered pallets, the highest tier being 1.8M.
Prior to the G-Forces™ and Ceiling Mounted System, the operators were lifting and moving the reels, weighing approximately 100 kg's by hand. The operation would take at least 2 people to complete. This dramatically increased the risk of injury to the operators and slowed production.
A Ceiling Mounted Work Station Crane with four G-Forces™. A core-handling device is integrated with the G-Force™, which will not allow the release of the reel until it's' weight is supported, a function performed by a weight sensitive air switch.
With the Ceiling Mounted system and G-Forces™, any one operator can now easily lift and stack the reels of hose without risk of injury. Productivity on these lines has increased 25% because the operators no longer have to complete the task manually and it only takes 1 person.
