Overhead Crane and Hoist equipment for industry based in the St. Louis area
Working with trusted suppliers such as Magnetek (Electromotive) crane controls, Ace World Companies, and J.R. Merritt joysticks and cab chair systems, Engineered Lifting Systems designs overhead crane and hoist solutions. Integrating components that are long proven in their rugged design, Shaw Box wire rope hoists, Budgit electric chain hoists, and J.D. Neuhaus air chain hoists and Winches bring high reliability and service to your plant. Many of the final designs use Avtron encoders for direct feedback to Variable frequency drives, HMI, or PLC controls. Lighter applications can use Gorbel workstation cranes and jibs for ergonomic ease of moving loads, reducing worker fatigue and stress. ELS can use Yale wire rope hoists in single and double girder applications. Telemotive radio remote controls are the number one radio remote control in the material handling field for a reason: they are rugged and competitive. Recently added Gleason cable reels provide the very best in magnet and crane power delivery. Many applications call for hook safety latches and for over 10-years we have been resolving repetitive injury problems at the hook with these.
We specialize in the modernization of overhead cranes and hoists for every industry
Structural repairs and/or rebuilds for existing equipment are often needed to keep key equipment in service. ELS can provide engineering to enable capacity upgrades of existing cranes and runways. Complete or partial crane control modernizations using Magnetek Static Stepless, Static Simulation, Flux Vector and Variable Frequency Control is a standard of what we do here at Engineered Lifting Systems. If you are seeing repeated wheel or skewing issues, we can assist you in determining if the replacement of endtrucks for your crane is your best option. Existing open wire, or worn out power and control transfer can use festoon upgrades to PowerTrak or I-beam type. And our shop is regularly performing crane brake rebuild services.
