With the patented elebia automatic lifting hooks, operations with big bags are safer, easier and faster than ever. Thanks to the automatic hook’s design, it is not necessary for the operator to manipulate the hook. The operator can use both hands to insert the handles, or engage the big bags remotely if used with metal wire slings, making the process faster and safer. Once the bigbag is on the ground, with a push of a button the lifting hook will open, remotely releasing the big bag.
The paper pulp handling process is now 50% faster with the combination of the automatic lifting hooks and hybrid textile slings. The fail-safe designed safety hook allows a remote release of the cargo keeping operators at a safe distance.
The best solution when lifting and manoeuvring plastic moulds from one point to another is the use of the elebia lifting hooks basically thanks to the fact that the load can be engaged and released remotely. There is no need for an operator to climb up and down the mould and no handling is necessary to release the hook.
For the horizontal lifting and moving of steel plates, the best option is the automatic lifting clamps. Usually two or more plate clamps are used together and they are sometimes complemented by the use of a spreader beam that not only helps to spread the load in an even manner, but also allows the clamps to be spaced out uniformly.
The NEO range of lifting hooks for bell furnaces has been designed, like the rest of our products, under a fail-safe principle: therefore it is impossible to drop a suspended load. Safety first! The lifting hook orients itself automatically ensuring it is correctly positioned on the lifting point, detecting the load is in position and closing automatically, with no additional handling involved. It’s tip, once closed, forms a complete loop around the lifting point, the closure system is confirmed locked and the bell furnace is ready to be lifted.
In the past, the most safe and efficient way to raise a silo was the silo-truck. Nowadays, thanks to the elebia automatic hook, this is no longer the case. The elebia system allows crane mounted trucks through the entire process of loading, unloading and lifting of the silo safely solving any limitation.
Lifting and handling steel has dramatically improved thanks to the elebia automatic hook. The safety hook allows the remote engage and release of the steel coils without having to manipulate the lifting hook. The operator approaches the ring with the magnet, and the magnet catches, centres and orients the ring into the right position. Then the sensor in the magnet detects when the ring is attached and the hook closes remotely, with no intervention needed from the crane operator.
Like other breakbulk operations at ports and docks, the unloading process is much faster with the combination of the elebia automatic hook and hybrid slings. The cargo can be released automatically, without the direct intervention of any operator, increasing safety and minimising the risk of injuries of all personnel involved.
The eTrack Rail Lifting Clamp was envisioned to increase productivity and enhance safety in the lifting and handling of rail tracks. Operators normally have to walk on the rails to get into position, with the risk of slipping and catching their feet between the rails, specially under misty and rainy weather conditions. They also have to climb onto the trains and rail stacks and crouch over in order to engage and release the current clamps/grabs manually. Today, and thanks to the implementation of the eTrack, the lifting and handling process is faster and safer as risks inherents to the operation are drastically reduced.
Unique Lifting Point
When there is a single lifting point to lift a load, the lifting hooks for cranes represent the best solution. The patented evo hook is equipped with a magnet in its lower section. When the magnet is close to the load, it attracts and correctly positions the sling, masterlink or rigging gear. The operator pushes the control button, the hook closes, catches the ring and lifts the load without any additional handling. Simple!
Choked Sling Recovery
The patented safety hook allows a remote release of the cargo and no chains or hooks with a safety latch are necessary. With the automatic release feature, the need to move up and down the truck bed or having to climb to elevated and dangerous places and heights to release a choked sling is eliminated.
Textile Slings with Metal Wiring
Combining the new elebia textile slings with metal wiring (round, tubular), with the automatic crane hooks solves the remote engage and remote release of long loads. The slings with wire rope allow the automatic hook to attract and orient and easily engage with the magnet.
Extreme Working Environments
The automatic hooks offer different solutions for extreme working conditions and environments, such as a heat shield that protects the hook and its electronic components from radiated heat and and extended temperature working range.
