When its comprehensive line of standard lifting equipment doesn’t fit the exact needs of the application, Engineered Lifting Systems & Equipment (ELS) has the capability to custom design and manufacture the overhead lifting device to suit the customer’s unique requirements.
Case in point
A customer in the food manufacturing industry required multiple 1,000-pound pump motors on process machines to be lifted during maintenance operations. The area around both the floor and the machine had limited space, there was no overhead crane service, and it was not accessible to fork trucks. A custom solution was required, and ELS had the expertise to come up with the most appropriate option — a floor-mounted cantilevered monorail system consisting of two headers, five columns and four monorails.
This custom solution was engineered, manufactured and installed by ELS to meet the exact needs of the application. Installation of the system required careful planning to work with the structure and around the existing process machinery. The monorail system was tied back to an overhead building beam to secure its position.
Although the pump motors are not lifted frequently, this effective custom lifting solution provides critically important overhead lifting for ongoing machine maintenance.
ELS was able to handle this application, and many more, thanks to its expert team. The company’s technical sales team has the knowledge to guide customers to the right solution, while its on-staff professional engineers have the capability to certify ELS design solutions to comply with all current applicable regulatory codes and established engineering standards for mechanical, electrical and structural elements. Manufacturing and installations are performed by trained staff qualified to the Canadian Welding Bureau CSA Standard W47.1 and by licensed electricians.
