Materials handling specialists J D Neuhaus will present their concept study of a stainless steel air hoist for the first time at the LogiMAT 2016 exhibition, taking place in Stuttgart from 8 – 10 March 2016. Exhibiting in Hall 6, Stand No. 6G60, the service side of the company will also present information on their comprehensive project planning and maintenance facilities.

Under the motto “engineered for extremes”, J D Neuhaus (JDN) pneumatic and hydraulic hoists and crane systems are used worldwide under the harshest of conditions: on drilling platforms, underground, in foundries, in arctic temperatures as low as -45°, or even under water. Extreme environmental conditions, no matter what the temperature, hot or cold, the performance of JDN products is not impeded.

But indoor uses can be just as extreme as these outdoor ones, namely in areas requiring extreme cleanliness and hygiene. JDN will present the conceptual study of a stainless steel air hoist at LogiMAT for exactly these areas. The sectors JDN is targeting with this study, which also provides for the use of food safe plastics, include for example, the food and drinks industry, chemical and pharmaceutical companies, together with medical and aerospace technology. The study combines the advantages of using compressed air as a method of operation with the hoist construction material of stainless steel. The products will therefore be resistant to corrosion and high levels of humidity, and also easy to clean and disinfect.

Even high-pressure cleaners pose no problem. As the out-going air is extracted and the chain is protected by a bellows, they can also be used in clean rooms (optical and semiconductor industries). And because compressed air is used as a method of operation, the hoist will also be explosion protected (ATEX) so that they can be used in potentially dangerous atmospheres or areas where organically flammable chemicals are handled.

JDN Service will also present its comprehensive offer for planning a project involving the maintenance and general work including overhauls of JDN products. For optimal parts supply, the JDN team has designed spare parts kits and general overhaul kits, which offer the customers a vastly improved service for ordering spare parts. The JDN Service Programme also offers training courses and, where necessary, rented hoists.

In addition, the company will also exhibit examples of standard JDN hoists with an extensive range of accessories and look forward to welcoming visitors to their stand.
