For over 45 years, we have supported companies in the manual handling of materials and resources across a wide range of industries. With our mobile, battery-powered lifting equipment, we make production and warehouse processes more efficient, improving workflows and making employees happier. This is because with our innovative and highly customisable lifting solutions, there is always reliable help at hand. Support at the right place at the right time protects the health of your employees, promotes satisfaction and productivity and maximises occupational safety in your company.
From the first day on, we have continuously endeavoured to develop our company and our products. We started out with handmade polyurethane machines. Then sack trucks were added. The first lifting aid was built by 1995. By the way, our battery-operated mobile lifters are similar in design to those original devices and now support a wide range of industries covering a broad variety of tasks.
Your industry is not included? If it isn't included yet, it certainly will be soon. Thanks to our flexible product concept and over 100,000 configurations to choose from, we can quickly build a lifting solution according to your individual requirements – without having to turn it into a costly bespoke project.
Simply contact us – we’ll be more than happy to advise you personally on your options.
When manufacturing a wide variety of products, containers with materials, resources or finished products often have to be lifted, moved and transported. For employees, this type of repetitive process is not just a fundamental safety risk, it’s also a considerable health risk.
In order to guarantee maximum protection and eliminate long-term physical consequences, our lifters are the ideal solution for a large number of lifting and transport operations throughout the entire production process. For ergonomic work in production, very straightforward handling and increased efficiency.
Speed, quality and cost pressure are the major challenges facing the logistics industry. In times of online trading, delivery speed, quality and service standards and the constant pressure to succeed against the competition means there is always a high daily volume of work.
All these factors are responsible for an extremely heavy workload. This results in particularly high illness rates in order picking and warehousing. In logistics in particular, it is vital to be able to respond reliably to increased demands. Our mobile lifters help reduce physical strain during order picking or packing, for example, and completely eliminate repetitive lifting processes that constitute a health hazard.
Extremely rigorous hygiene standards are the norm in the industrial manufacture of medical products. The regulations usually apply to production, the filling process and packaging. Mechanical aids used in these areas in particular have to comply with the high standards of hygiene and quality.
Our stainless steel IP standard lifters reliably support you in handling raw materials such as powders or liquids as well as primary packaging in clean rooms. In addition, the lifters facilitate work processes, minimise physical strain and maximise the safety of your employees – whether lifting, tipping and emptying drums or inserting heavy foils into the packaging machine.
In the cosmetics industry, maintaining product quality on the basis of applicable hygiene standards is a particular challenge. It is precisely here that products are often taken off the market as soon as there is the slightest doubt in terms of quality or safety.
Our stainless steel lifters in hygienic design comply with GMP regulations and effectively support a smooth production process. In this way, risks due to contamination and occupational safety hazards are minimised wherever manual processes such as lifting heavy and unwieldy objects endanger safety and hygiene in your company.
The handling of dangerous goods during filling, weighing and processing poses a high risk to safety and health, especially for employees in the chemical industry. This is precisely why our modular lifters made of stainless steel comply with GMP regulations such as the prevention of contamination, as well as guaranteeing reproducible product quality.
Our lifting solutions are ideally suited for use in clean rooms, hygienic areas or in potentially explosive areas. With stainless steel IP standard lifters, you meet the requirements of material handling while at the same time increasing the efficiency of your entire process.
When buying food, consumers rely on flawless production. In order to ensure safe production process and meet the rigorous hygiene standards of the food industry, we offer a number of suitable solutions.
Whether you need to transport and combine raw materials and ingredients, pack finished products or prepare them for shipping – with our battery-powered stainless steel lifters you can easily optimise an entire process chain. And this is exactly where manual operations such as lifting and transporting heavy and unwieldy objects have previously posed a risk to safety and hygiene.
In canteen kitchens and bakeries, moving, lifting and shifting heavy pots, vessels and other large containers is all part and parcel of the day-to-day routine. In most companies, these operations are often still carried out manually. This involves an enormous risk to the safety and health of your employees.
In order to avoid absenteeism due to unfavourable physical postures at work, we have made lifting, transporting and tipping very heavy work equipment especially easy to meet the needs of kitchens and bakeries. Using our stainless steel lifters, you can reduce physical strain and while easily complying with occupational safety and hygiene regulations.
In many car repair garages, seasonal tyre changes still require enormous physical effort on the part of employees. Tyres have to be removed from shelves, transported to the vehicle and fitted, and then sets of interchangeable tyres have to be replaced in storage.
We have developed our own product series that is specially adapted to your requirements, making everyday work considerably easier so as to relieve your car mechanics.
For some time now, we have been developing special solutions for the 3D printer industry that are precisely tailored to the special requirements that apply. Our lifters enable you to optimise your workflow in the 3D printing process – from filling the printer to removing the product.
In order to find appropriate solutions for you, we use a project model tested during development and our own project team of experienced engineers – from the first idea and the initial drawing through to development of the prototype and the finished series product.
The use of mobile lifters knows no bounds. Wherever heavy objects have to be lifted and transported by employees, you can put Hovmand lifting equipment into operation quickly and easily for more efficient and safer processes.
