SIMPLIFT Product Range 2019
SIMPLIFT lifters are the back bone of our large range lifting solutions.
Designed and manufactured to be strong and reliable, these lifters are used in a wide variety of industrial applications and are the optimum choice for safety, efficiency and reliability.
The key features in the product are achieved through intelligent design, adhering strictly to industry standards and subjecting all lifters to vigorous and well documented test procedures before deliver.
During lifting and handling operations safety should always be the first priority. By using our lifters you reduce the risk of back injury as well as other forms of injury sustained from manual lifting.
To ensure operator safety in regard to using the lifter we of course adhere to all applicable industry standards and regulations.
We conduct thorough risk evaluations and address the “what if”-scenarios that may lead to safety issues. We implement technical features such as safety clutches, overload protection, hold-to-run controls and emergency stops when applicable.
Our customers rely on our lifters. For instance, lifters provide machines and personnel with the materials needed during production. As such the lifters become an essential part of the production process, making reliability a key issue. We live up to these expectations by implementing the following in all our products:
– We use only the highest quality components in our lifters. Quality is always the first priority in component selection with no compromises allowed.
– The lifters are dimensioned for a 20 year life expectancy assuming normal use (excluding wear and tear elements such as wheels and batteries).
– During design, calculations are made to ensure that all safety factors for strength exceed industry standards by a comfortable margin. Apart from the added user safety, this also ensures an added degree of reliability.
– We test everything rigorously before it leaves our facility. We document all tests with photos, video and check lists.
Lifting equipment defies its purpose if the user risks injury or MSDs (Musculoskeletal Disorders) by using it. As such, we make in depth analyses of how users interact with our lifters and make sure our design process takes all ergonomic issues
Our lifting solutions deliver a large number of electrically power functions, which reduces the need for repetitive manual
cranking or pedal/pump motions. Control of the powered functions is done with at custom designed remote control with
large buttons, which are easy to press even with gloves on.
The remote allows for an optimal position for the user during lifting an manipulating operations.
All handles are designed and placed based on ergonomic principles to avoid incorrect motion and unnecessary strain. The necessary force to manoeuvre the lifter is considered and wheels and castors are selected carefully in accordance (based on the load placement and the surface, which they will be used on).
The parameters for lifting and handling operations vary widely. Loads vary in geometry and weight, the direction and type of manipulation varies depending on the task at hand and access is often restricted by doors, ceilings, machine parts and other obstructions.
When we designed our lifters we knew that in many circumstances a standard solution would not do. So, we adopted a modular approach allowing for easy customisation of all major dimension of our lifters. Apart from custom dimensions we also deliver a wide variety of other options including stainless variates, waterproofing (IP65), ATEX and Electrostatic discharge (ESD).
With any custom solution, communication during the design phase is critical. We have many years experience with this and have a standardised procedure to ensure the best possible result. See more on this and our custom solutions in general.
Reliability and Maintenance
Our modular design approach allows for easy customisation of our lifters, but also has the added beneﬁt of allowing easy maintenance. For instance, removing and replacing a lifting column is achieved by only loosening a few screws.
The same goes for the entire control unit. Unscrew two screws and in many cases the complete motor and gear unit can be replaced.
We know that our customers rely on our lifters and as such easy maintenance and reliability are critical.
When we designed our lifters, we carefully tried and tested a large variety concepts and components to ensure that we built the optimal lifter. On the next few pages there is a short description of each ofthe major components and what made us choose them.
