May 30, 2013 – The J D Neuhaus offers air-operated handling equipment for individual loads up to 100 tons, but is can also supply air hoists for operation in light to medium engineering and general workshop applications. Two ranges of these general lower-duty hoists are available, including the JDN Mini series with models available for payload ratings of 125kg, 250kg, 500kg and 980kg. These aluminum-bodied units provide optional lift heights of 3m, 5m and 8m with a 6 bar air supply; they are also equipped with a single top suspension hook, which can be used with an optional trolley mounting providing overhead rail suspension. A manipulator unit is available in this Mini range.

Where more rugged, steel-bodied hoists are required, the JDN Profi TI series incorporates four models in a lower-load range rated at 250kg, 500kg and 1000kg, plus a 2-ton lift capacity unit. These models also provide single suspension hook mounting with three optional trolley mounts to provide manual, reel chain on motorized traverse movements. These products are supplied as standard with 3m lift heights, operating from optional 4 or 6 bar air supplies.

All of these JDN products promise permanent lubrication for the vane motor design and planetary gearbox to offer fail-safe starting with low maintenance and lube-free operation. This is complemented with a patented wear-resistant motor braking system for 100% duty rating and the elimination of downtime, says J D. Filtered or piped air exhaust systems can be supplied, together with appropriate alternative grease lubricant for hoist operations within food-grade related areas.
