Materials handling specialist JD Neuhaus (JDN) will be showing its concept study of a new stainless steel air hoist (above) at the CeMAT 2016 international exhibition, taking place in Hannover, Germany, on 31 May-3 June.
Target markets for stainless steel air hoists include the food and beverage sector, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, medical and aerospace. Visitors to the stand will see JDN’s study that assesses the benefits of using compressed air as a method of operation in combination with stainless steel as the hoist’s construction material.
Resistance to corrosion and high levels of humidity will therefore be assured, while the products will be easy to clean and disinfect, even using high-pressure cleaning equipment. Expelled air is extracted, while a bellows is deployed to protect the chain.
The hoist uses compressed air as the driving media, which means it is explosion-protected (ATEX) and makes it suitable for dangerous atmospheres and those where organically flammable chemicals are in use.
Also on the JDN display will be examples of its standard air hoists, such as the best-selling Profi and Mini ranges.
