VERLINDE hoist used for PELLOBY inverted travelling jib crane

Tuesday, March 15th, 2016

PELLOBY recently installed a unique inverted travelling jib crane featuring a VERLINDE VT2 EUROBLOC wire rope hoist at the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) ISIS complex at Rutherford Appleton Laboratory near Oxford.ISIS is a world-leading materials research centre which produces beams of neutrons and muons that can delve into the complexity of matter using a suite of beamline instruments, which gives unique insights into the properties of materials on the atomic scale.

A series of three adjacent overhead cranes span the width of one of the two large ISIS experimental halls onsite that allow access to the various beam defining equipment areas. However as the building´s capabilities were expanded to accommodate additional instruments, some of the new beam defining equipment areas were located in a ´cranage dead zone´ which the existing overhead cranes couldn´t reach.

Pelloby (www.pelloby.com) were asked to come up with a lifting solution to give ISIS and the various research teams at the complex, suitable craneage access to these dead zone areas – the aim being to lift beamline instrument components, shielding and other materials in and out of the restricted crane access areas.

Working closely with STFC engineers, our designers set to work and the result was an inverted travelling jib crane which can traverse the length of the building along a 53 metre gantry support rail system, while also providing continuous 360 degree access in a five metre radius thanks to a powered rotating jib arm. This innovative modified travelling jib crane can support loads of up to five tonnes thanks to a Verlinde VT2 Eurobloc hoist.

Eurostyle Vatal And Eurostyle VFTAL: jib cranes with aluminium hollow profile arms

Friday, June 26th, 2015

Verlinde is now marketing two EUROSTYLE series jib cranes the booms of which are made of EUROSYSTEM ALU aluminium hollow sections. EUROSTYLE VATAL and EUROSTYLE VFTAL are designed for loads of from 63 to 2000 kg, and through radial distances of from 2 to 8 metres depending on the model.EUROSTYLE VATAL wall mounted jib crane

EUROSYSTEM ALU sets itself apart by the lightness of its aluminium hollow sections with a rolling coefficient enabling, in the first place, effortless travelling trolley positioning and secondly, easy handling of the unit. EUROSYSTEM ALU enables the weight of VATAL and VFTAL jib crane arms to be cut by 50% compared with conventional steel structures. The lightness of the rails provides easy, effortless manipulation by the operator even with heavy and unwieldy loads.

EUROSTYLE VATAL is a wall mounted jib crane able to work through 180°. It is the ideal solution for work stations located near walls and vertical structures. It is an indispensable backup for overhead cranes in any workshop. Workstations thus become more autonomous with consequent increased efficiency.

Verlinde commences jib manufacturing in Pakistan

Tuesday, October 18th, 2011

Verlinde will this month start manufacture of jibs based on its kit mechanism in Pakistan, and the beginning of its direct jib crane delivery to the country.

Verlinde jib cranes have applications in industrial and manufacturing environments, enabling goods to be moved upon a floor or lifted to different floors.

The news follows on Verlinde Pakistan’s ‘massive’ crane orders from Indus Toyota and Pak Suzuki.

Verlinde will ensure that jibs with SWL 0.5–2t are manufactured and available from stock in Pakistan. Jibs are available both demand and to order, the company said. It will also make aluminium jibs used in water treatment operations.

The company has made the strategic decision to manufacture in Pakistan because of the popularity of its products in the country. The move that will make it easier for it to meet the demands of its customers in Pakistan.

Simon Rothechild, business development manager for Verlinde, said: “Being able to announce work with big global players like Pak Suzuki and Indus Toyota so soon after Verlinde’s move into Pakistan is amazing progress and to keep the momentum going, moving to manufacture now makes strategic sense and demonstrates our commitment to Pakistan as a major emerging market. Manufacturing here means we will be able to offer an unrivalled service to our Pakistani customers and we are really looking forward to seeing the project grow moving forwards.”

Shahid Akram, who is Verlinde’s country representative working on the project in Lahore, said: “The decision to commence manufacture so soon has not been taken lightly, but that fact that we can so soon confirms the soundness of the decision to invest in Pakistan. Pakistan is a country with a great future and we are looking forward to seeing our cranes help build the future here.”

Integrating with Verlinde’s new manufacturing centre, its existing products and services in Pakistan will continue as usual. Its recently introduced chain hoist may be ordered from stock immediately to complement the jibs. Service will continue in Pakistan for the ATEX explosion proof range. The liaison office will be able to offer rapid access to Morris brand spares.

Already, manufacturing is underway. The company said that the first cranes and components will be coming off the production line by late 2011.

“Manufacture in Pakistan is a major milestone in our plans to harness the potential the sub-continent can offer,” said Thomas Descamps, Verlinde’s managing director. “We are delighted to be moving so quickly; our colleagues on the ground in Pakistan are doing a fantastic job and as a company we are proud to be playing our part in this country’s developing success story.”

Hoist UK on the Eiffel Tower

Friday, January 2nd, 2009

Hoist UK have supplied Verlinde SA in France, who are a leading manufacturer of lifting equipment, with a custom built aluminium jib crane for refurbishment work of the hydraulic systems, press cylinders and accumulator cylinders of the west elevator of the Eiffel Tower.

The press and accumulator cylinders of the Eiffel Tower elevators have actually been in service for one hundred years, and this is the first time they have been changed with systems that are technically as similar as possible to the original equipment fitted in the tower.

Our free standing jib crane was a 250kg working capacity unit with a three metre operating radius and with two metres to the underside of the arm. The jib was a bolted and…. Read more
