J.D Neuhaus, one of Europe’s foremost materials handling and lifting specialists, are exhibiting on stand number E58, hall 12, at the CeMAT International Material Handling Fair being held on 2-6 May in Hannover, Germany. The company has established a reputation for quality products, combining reliability, performance and longevity, for operation in hazardous or arduous conditions.

JDN are taking this opportunity to show some of their latest products, many of which have been developed to cover specialised applications within particular industries. These include the EH 25 monorail hoist, which is designed to fulfil all requirements for the safe and effective handling of BOP products whether for offshore rigs, sea going vessels or land-based operations.

A 25t lift capacity is combined with air or hydraulic operated lift and travel movements, together with optional remote electrical or radio controls. For shipbuilding or general shipyard applications the new JDN Profi 25 TI hoist provides both horizontal and oblique lifting and pulling with sensitive positioning control and rugged reliability. The EH and Profi hoists both benefit from recent design advantages in performance, low component count and energy savings with models also available with 37t and 50t lift capacities.

To complement these marine proven products, the company will have on show their Profi 6 TI air-operated hoist developed for subsea operation. Other 25t capacity hoists have already been successfully deployed in underwater repair operations on a large tanker vessel while still afloat.

Their Profi 2 TI hoist also being exhibited will be equipped with a low headroom trolley for overhead rail operation. This product, with a 2t lift, is ideal for many industrial applications such as foundries and chemical, cement and pharmaceuticals production. Hoists with up to 100t lift capacity can be supplied from their Profi range, equipped with manual, reel chain or motorised trolleys.

For food and other light industry applications, the Mini 250 hoist will be demonstrated with a 250kg capacity. This is a handy, flexible and universally deployable air-operated hoist, that can be complemented with 125kg, 500kg and 980kg capacity versions.

A Profi 3 TI hoist of 3.2t capacity and suitable for cryogenic operation down to 20°C will also be shown, ideal for cold store operation. These products can be either air or hydraulically operated. For operation at temperatures from 20°C to 45°C, hydraulic hoists can be supplied fitted with a pre-heating device for the drives, with cryogenic hydraulic oil used for the control, traverse and lifting operations. An adapted EH 20 hydraulic monorail hoist has also been successfully tested for operation at these extreme arctic conditions.

All these JDN products are fully Ex rated for operation in explosive or otherwise hazardous areas and toughest environments. Increased spark protection can also be accommodated for explosion group IIC with 100% duty rating, integrated safety features and sensitive, infinitely variable speed controls provided for precise load positioning.
