MGT Suffolk Ltd has specified two sets of Stertil-Koni heavy-duty wireless mobile column vehicle lifts to compliment the Company’s workshop upgrade at its premises near Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, UK. One set is made up of 6 x 7.5t columns for tri-axle vehicles and the second set is made up of 4 x 7.5t columns for standard vehicles.
Both sets of Stertil-Koni heavy-duty vehicle lifts are made up of wireless mobile columns, type ST1075FWA, each column providing a lifting capacity of 7.5 tonnes thereby ensuring an overall safe lifting capacity of 30 tonnes when used as a set of four, 45 tonnes per set of six, 60 tonnes per set of 8 and a massive 75 tonnes if all 10 are connected together!
Each column incorporates Stertil-Koni’s revolutionary ebright Smart Control System which allows workshop technicians to operate the columns individually, in pairs or in any other combination from any column in the set. Positioning of the wireless columns is also totally flexible, enabling them to be used in any configuration around a vehicle.
For added safety and performance, the ebright Smart Control System shows how many columns in the set are being used plus the battery status of each column. Safety is further enhanced by an independent mechanical locking system, incorporated into each column, which allows technicians to securely lock the lift to prevent a vehicle from being inadvertently lowered.
This heavy-duty lift is powered by long-life deep cycle batteries which provide optimum performance for at least a week on average before recharging is necessary. Also, battery life is prolonged due to the fact that, unlike a screw-lift, power is only used to raise the vehicle therefore less time is spent recharging the lift which is carried out via a 230v single phase supply. Importantly, with no cables on the workshop floor, the risk of tripping is removed, providing valuable health and safety benefits.
The absence of power and communication cables means that set-up time is greatly reduced thereby making the system fully operational much more quickly. Significantly, the lift’s unique synchronisation system ensures a smooth lifting and lowering cycle, even in the event of extremely uneven load distribution. Supplied complete with adjustable width forks, the Stertil-Koni ST1075FWA easily meets the challenge of lifting vehicles with differing tyre widths to ensure maximum versatility. Also, the ST1075FWA provides a maximum lifting height of 1.85 metres which is reached in just 75 seconds thereby making it one of the fastest heavy-duty commercial vehicle lifts available.
