Air hoists from the J D Neuhaus Profi range have been successfully utilised within a paint booth to facilitate the movement of material in and out of the booth. The installation has helped to boost productivity and was carried out by Engineered Lifting Systems (ELS), a major representative in the USA for the J D Neuhaus (JDN) range of high performance air operated lifting equipment.
ELS are particularly proud of this upgrade, carried out for a spray booth operated by one of their customers. The customer is equally pleased with the improved performance and increased output they have achieved, as well as maintaining a high finish level for their product lines.
The handling of components, designated for spray booth coating operations, had previously been undertaken utilising two manually operated chain hoists located on an overhead rail running the full length of the booth. The hoists provided the necessary lift and full horizontal travel movements required for work pieces being sprayed, with all the manual actions necessary being undertaken by the spray booth personnel. With individual loads of up to 2 tonnes being catered for, it was obvious that fully mechanised load movements would improve working conditions, increase productivity and potentially enhance finish quality.
