As members of the Association for Iron & Steel Technology (AIST), Engineered Lifting Systems LLC traveled this week to the AISTech in Pittsburgh to meet with our customers and vendors, while getting a chance to see some of the newest technology as it applies to overhead crane systems. In attendance for the AISTech Conference and Exposition this year was Eric Brown, Mike Brown, and Jared Hines. One of the highlights of our trip was the chance to see the J.R. Merritt crane operator training simulator. We had previously seen this unit at the factory and provided some insight into its development. We also took time to stop by and see our friends at the Magnetek booth including Aaron Kurek, Bob Schmitt, Casey Cummins, Marco Pardo and Mr. Mark Sullivan (Magnetek’s Pittsburgh Representative). NOTE: Strangely absent was Chris. Look forward to future blog posts with new Magnetek equipment and components.
