Uses of Industrial Lifting Equipment
Most industrial businesses have a fleet of lifting equipment to assist them with their daily work on site. These uniquely designed vehicles are specialised to do certain jobs, so you can expect interesting body shapes and weird and wonderful designs when browsing through such a fleet. Storage facilities and warehouses are where these machines are commonly found. These facilities house pallets of products or raw materials that must be moved around. They must be run like clockwork to ensure maximum efficiency and productivity.
EIE Group offers a wide selection of industrial lifting equipment to choose from. Our selection covers most bases, irrespective of what type a business needs. We also offer rental options to ensure that our customers get the best value for their money. These machines can be very expensive, as they are highly specialised equipment, so a rental option might be ideal. Fleet management is another important aspect of running a successful business. You want to avoid unnecessary expenses when running such a fleet, so our lift-truck fleet-management options will give you the tools to fully optimise your warehouse or storage-facility fleet.
Forklifts and Truck-Mounted Cranes
Forklifts are some of the most commonly used lifting equipment in an industrial setting. Normally, these machines feature a counterbalanced design that puts places weights to the rear of the vehicle. As a result, the front-mounted fork can lift heavy loads with ease, as the rear serves as a counterbalance to the front. These lift trucks are narrow and feature small turning circles to make them ideal for manoeuvring in confined spaces and narrow aisles. Our selection of forklifts includes a variety of leading brands and different designs of lift trucks to suit your business’s requirements.
For indoor applications, most lifting equipment is powered by battery, as opposed to an internal-combustion engine. The reasoning behind this is to prevent dangerous emissions from filling the interior of a storage facility. However, being in the industrial sector, you want a counterbalanced truck that can operate outdoors as well. Our range includes solutions for both, as well as counterbalanced trucks that are designed for container handling. Therefore, you can be assured that we have a feasible solution to suit your needs, whatever they are.
Truck-mounted cranes are a different breed of lifting equipment. They feature a knuckle-boom design to give them optimal versatility. These cranes are mounted onto the rear of loader trucks, giving these trucks the ability to load themselves. Usually, a second vehicle would be required for such a feat. With one of our knuckle booms, you can cut down on costs and have a loader truck capable of loading and unloading itself. We offer an all-inclusive selection of these cranes, with ranges for recycling and forestry applications.
