air operated hoist

J.D. Neuhaus will be exhibiting at the CeMAT 2014 international exhibition being held from 19 to 23 May in Hannover, Germany. Information on the Neuhaus range of hoists and cranes will be available at stand number F41 in hall 27, which is dedicated to move and lift equipment. The company’s products include both hydraulic and air-operated equipment, with the latter being designed and appropriately Ex rated for safe operation within potentially explosive atmospheres, or otherwise dirty, dusty or similarly hazardous operating conditions.

Their products can be supplied for light, medium and heavy duty lifting and pulling operations ranging from 250kg up to 100 tonnes per unit, with twin hoist products utilised in tandem or parallel operations providing the capability of individual vertical lifts and load movements in excess of 200 tonnes. Backed-up by worldwide engineering support and representation, the J D Neuhaus products combine reliability with 100% duty ratings for wide-ranging engineering requirements, as well as specialised applications including mining, tunnelling, shipbuilding, steelworks, chemical plants, oil and gas exploration and ore extraction. With a product range that has been built and engineered for extremes, operating performance, reliability and longevity is also guaranteed.

The JDN Profi and EH range of hoists will be represented electronically with a split-screen presentation. This will also be complemented with an iPad Park for use by stand visitors, providing interactive product presentations (offline microsite or interactive PDF). The latest versions of the JDN Profi and EH hoists will also be featured in operation, within a shipyard and offshore rig respectively, with these applications illustrated through wire frame 3D technology. Additional products also being electronically represented include JDN mini air hoists for lighter engineering applications together with both air and hydraulically operated Profi and monorail hoists together with cranes and crane kit systems. Trolley systems to provide horizontal load movements for overhead rail mounted hoists will also be featured, including trolley systems for low and ultra low headroom applications. Specialised products including the latest subsea hoists (for operation at depths of 70 metres), together with cryogenic hoists for operation at arctic temperatures down to 40°C, and big-bag handling hoists for the efficient handling of powder or other free flowing materials will also be digitally represented.

The latest versions of both the new Profi and EH hoists, rated for 75 and 100 tonnes load applications, will also be featured, highlighting increased speed for both lift and lower operations, even under fully loaded conditions. This is combined with appreciable air/power savings, reductions in both physical sizes and sound levels during operation. These benefits result from the introduction of a new air motor unit which provides 10kW output at 6 bar air pressure.
