Based on the LOXrail system, the LOSYCO team of intra-logistics specialists creates handling solutions that help machine and plant engineering companies streamline production processes. The rails designed for payloads of several tons, the choice of drive technology, and the line layout are adapted to the requirements of the particular operation. Optionally, the entire system can be installed in the hall floor to implement mobile assembly lines for one-piece flow. Working for a machine tool builder, LOSYCO recently developed a drive concept with an especially low installation height to realize just such a solution. An underfloor pull-bar system that spans the entire assembly line is powered by a chain conveyor installed at the end of the line. A tow conveyor pulls the bulky assembly platforms from station to station. After each move, the system is retracted to the original position and again coupled to the platforms. This enables seamless flow production throughout all stages and allows assembly teams to move freely, unobstructed by the underfloor intra-logistics system. „This special in-floor solution illustrates the high degree of variability of our LOXrail system,“ says LOSYCO sales director Manuel Granz. The system comes with 25 mm or 40 mm rail diameters and includes intersections and turntables for a flexible adaption of the line to any shop-floor layout. The transport platforms run on smooth wheel sets with single or double rollers to accommodate payloads from 16 kN to 100 kN per wheel set. Due to the particularly low-friction wheel profile, machine tools and other very heavy goods are safely transported and accurately positioned. In applications requiring more power, LOSYCO equips the LOXrail system with electric or pneumatic movers, batteries, cable reels, or inductive drive technology.

Liftket has developed the first electronically controlled chain hoist with quick stop function. The Star VFD stops without ramp-down immediately after the control button is released. Therefore, loads can be lifted or lowered to the desired level in one go. No longer is there a need for time-consuming stop-and-go, which today still is a common way to position loads with increased precision. The new series comprises hoists for loads from 125 to 2000 kg. With nominal speeds up to 36 m/min depending on the load, these chain hoists are much faster than comparable products on the market. Moving with no load, they can even be operated with up to 200 % of the nominal speed. This also saves a lot of time in everyday operation, since typically half of all runs are empty runs. And even apart from that, hoists are mostly operated with partial load. The speed of a Star VFD can be increased accordingly when the nominal speed is not fully utilized. This standard series provides customers with cost-efficient, fast hoists for heavy use and large-volume applications. Liftket ships individually configured chain hoists within 15 working days. The variable-frequency drive was specifically designed for this application in cooperation with a renowned international drive manufacturer. It is suitable for worldwide use. All hoist components are manufactured and fully tested at Liftket’s German headquarters.

Liftket has added new 5-ton electric chain hoists to its Speed Line. In addition, this series now features temperature monitoring of the lifting motor by default. The manufacturer configures all electric chain hoists to order. The Speed Line models are shipped within 15 working days or less. Customers can specify the suspension type (eye or hook), girder width, as well as a push trolley or electric trolley. The Speed Line allows for lifting heights up to 20 m. It therefore covers most industrial applications. If required, Liftket furthermore builds special chain hoists. The Speed Line now comprises 11 models for loads from 125 kg to 5000 kg. Depending on the load, these hoists offer different nominal speeds up to a maximum of 10 m/min. They each have two lifting speeds. Optimized for fast custom configuration, the series is also fully tested, safe, very robust, and durable. The mechanics have proven reliable in the established Star Liftket series in hundreds of thousands of installations. The chain hoist configurator on the company website gives users an express route to their tailor-made electric chain hoist.
