2020 Guide To Industrial Lifting Equipment

Industrial Lifting Equipment is a necessary part of almost any industry and the market is growing more and more every day. As companies evolve into automation and global markets the need for industrial moving equipment becomes a larger demand. So what exactly does industrial lifting equipment look like?

Well, It can be anything from a forklift, to maneuver pallets of materials, to industrial electric chain hoists, used to carry nuclear propellant units. The fact is, no matter the lifting needs, somewhere, there is almost always a need for lifting equipment.

Manual lifting equipment has many uses.

Hydraulic Table Trucks can raise materials to twenty-seven inches from floor height with hydraulic foot pedal operation and hand lever release makes this manual lifting equipment useful for operation in a warehouse setting.

Hand pallet jacks are also a warehouse manual lifting equipment that is used by a single operator to move pallets at floor level from one area to the next.

A manual stacker is used to move pallets at a height of up to sixty inches or less from one area to another inside a warehouse setting.

Electric Forklifts are used to move materials over short distances and come in many varieties, such as; side-loaders, counterbalance, telehandler, industrial, and rough terrain, and have a weight capacity between one and five tons. They are electrical powered and gear operated.

Industrial floor cranes can be, either, manual or fully powered, are compact, and used to carry heavy or awkward loads and depending on which model the weight capacity varies tremendously and affects the price.

Ingersoll rand air hoist is a beam mounted pulley system used to carry items up to six tons. These Hoists are compact and can be mounted on pretty much any beam with any headroom. They are very versatile, however, they do require a clean air supply of 90psig. They have a top and bottom latch swivel hooks, manual brake release kits, heat-treated gearing systems, and ample slack chain that prevents dangerous situations like cross-linking. Ingersoll rand air hoists also feature aluminum, steel, or bronze coating that are spark and explosion resistant that add further to their already extensive safety measures.

On the other hand, there are Electric chain hoists that are even more reliable and attractive to consumers. With handheld controls that fit nicely in consumers’ hands, it is even easier to use than the air supplied or manual hoists. These industrial electric hoists are quiet and effective with quantum load chains and zinc-plated alloy steel that does an amazing job of preventing corrosion. Electric hoists also have safe AC motor brakes,and feature an emergency stop button that shuts down all operations instantaneously in case of emergencies.

Trolleys and Beam clamps are used to secure the hoists to beams and come in a couple of different styles, plain, geared, and powered. Plain trolleys come standard with gear track wheels and side plates and are usually used for stationary equipment and will be fixed upon one load-bearing beam and equipment module. Simply add a hand geared kit to convert the plain trolley into a geared trolley which can be used for small equipment travel. A motorized is ideal for long-distance equipment travel and can travel up to 75 feet per minute.

Whether you need manual, geared, or fully powered lifting equipment it is clear to see that the market for industrial lifting equipment is a necessary and blooming enterprise. At any budget, lifting equipment can be affordable, safe, and non-compromising. Make sure to check that any and all equipment is verified and installed correctly before use.
