EMH’s new G-Series Crane Kits.

Engineered Material Handling (EMH) (Valley City, OH) makes it easier to design, manufacture and install your own crane. By integrating the new EMH EG Series Hoist, users can count on more capability, including enhanced trolley adjustment. The new G-Series Crane Kits also include all the quality components customers need to install EMH ZLW Double Girder Top Running Cranes, ELV Single Girder Top Running Cranes, DLV Single Girder Cranes, and EDL Single Girder (low headroom) Cranes under Running Cranes.

Each kit includes the EG Series Hoist with 20 feet of lift and a lifting speed of 16/2.6 FPM with trolley speeds at 65 FPM VFD (optional lifts and speeds available); end trucks with a travel speed of 120 FPM (VFD) complete with mounting plates, bolts and bumpers (single and two-speed drives also available); trolley tow arms with pipe clamps to be cut by the builder, bolted or welded to the trolley; a complete trolley and sliding push button Festoon System with all required mounting hardware (cables are pre-wired to quick disconnect plugs, Festoon trolley is already attached to cables); bridge conductor cables pre-wired to quick disconnect plugs; trolley end stops, and detailed engineering for bridge construction and crane assembly, including two sets of maintenance manuals.

The bridge control panel is comprised of lockable fused mainline disconnect mainline fuse, mechanical and electrical interlocking contractors and motor protection, and power and control connections pre-wired through terminal strips to disconnect plugs. The panel is mounted in a NEMA-12 enclosure. All components are based on a 480 3-60 power supply. For other voltages, contact EMH.

Configurable Lift Truck Platform Maximizes Performance

Hyster has released the first models in its new A Series lineup.

Hyster Co. (Greenville, N.C.) has released the first models built on its all-new A Series platform, the award-winning Hyster H40-70A series. These 4,000-to-7,000-pound capacity lift trucks offer world-class ergonomics, low total cost of ownership and safety features designed to bolster confidence and productivity, including the innovative Dynamic Stability System (DSS).

The A Series is a new line of forklift trucks manufactured using the company’s A+ Logic design philosophy. A+ Logic is a scalable approach that begins with the strong base of the A Series truck platform and allows customers to choose the options they need from a fully integrated set of scalable and adjustable features based on their unique application.

“We developed A+ Logic because no two customers face identical challenges and meeting their needs means building the truck around them – not a generic, off-the-shelf solution,” said John Santiago, director, Product Planning and Solutions, Hyster.

Options ensure the H40-70A delivers the capability operations required while protecting budgets. Durable components and extended service intervals help further control maintenance spend and bolster reliability and uptime.

The A Series also offers robust standard features, such as DSS sensors, which when they detect the truck exceeding designated thresholds, they automatically implement measures such as limiting truck speed and hydraulic function to help minimize the risk of forward and sideways tip-overs. The H40-70A is also designed with high levels of visibility and comfort to equip operators for optimal performance all shift long.

Lithium-Iron Forklifts Available for Indoor and Outdoor Applications

NOBLELIFT’S 70Q Lithium-Iron Forklift.

NOBLELIFT® North America’s (Des Plaines, IL) Four Wheel Lithium-Iron Phosphate (LiFe4OP) forklifts are highly efficient, durable forklifts. The forklifts come in models FE4P50Q (5,000 lb. capacity), FE4P60Q (6,000 lb. capacity) and FE4P70Q (7,000 lb. capacity). The forklifts have a 10 year or 20,000 hours warranty on the lithium-ion battery. The batteries fully charge in two-to-three hours; no battery changes are necessary. Lithium-ion batteries have a 3x longer lifespan than lead acid batteries.

The forklift’s mast system, front/rear axles and chassis are engineered to be tough like an internal combustion engine forklift, but with all the advantages of lithium-iron. AC drive technology is used to achieve high performance with low operating and maintenance costs.

The large, ergonomic cab and user-friendly design ensures operator comfort throughout the entire work shift. Deluxe suspension, fully adjustable seat reduces vibration to the driver to effectively reduce driver fatigue. Ergonomic U-shaped steering wheel with knob, together with hydraulic controls, provide comfortable and effortless operation.

Other features include intelligent buffering when descending to the ground, effectively protecting the ground and cargo from damage. The drive system’s horizontal fan-shaped axle and large transmission, coupled with the battery location and long wheelbase (67 inches), provide superior stability. The lifting motor location allows the truck to work in applications where water is on the ground.
