Constantly moving materials puts a strain on your body. Hoisting and holding parts and tools takes effort, especially in hard-to-reach areas. It’s not always safe and ergonomic to bend, stretch and turn while you’re carrying a heavy load. Our lifting equipment will help. Hovmand lifters take the weight off your people. Another plus: buying lifting trolleys often means you needn’t ‘fork out’ for a forklift.
Lifting tools can help with lots of jobs in the manufacturing and logistics side of industries like chemicals, food, paper and pharma. Slimline design means they can be easily stowed when not in use.
Some chemicals processes need liquids to be added in precise amounts. Intralogistics requires goods to be transported frequently, and available just in time. Order processing for shipping depends on rolls of paper and film being there at the right time. The conventional approach to these tasks takes intense physical effort. We recommend a hoist lift to anyone working in these physically demanding environments. Hovmand lifters have sturdy, adjustable feet for stability. Their hoisting height and capacity can also adjust to accommodate your requirements.
Many employees in manufacturing, logistics and trades are at daily risk of injury from lifting and carrying. People’s health can be compromised by lifting and shifting objects the wrong way. Falling objects are also an issue. Workplaces with safe practices therefore use personal protective equipment and ergonomic lifting. This means learning and practising movements that avoid putting a strain on your body. Get into good habits: bend your knees, not your back – and use lifts for heavy loads. Hovmand equipment and hoists can help with ergonomic lifting.
Why not configure mobile lifters to the items you need lifting? Our modular system lets you tailor the masts, lifting equipment, grip hoists and manipulators to your needs. Mobile Hovmand lifters can carry drums, reels, crates and other small loads, and even buckets, canisters, tyres and kettles. Our Virtual Engineering App lets you configure your lifting equipment in 3D. A few minutes is all it takes to visualise your new solution!
