Which Lifting Device for my activity?

Many companies today are faced with the problems of manual handling of loads. Whether the load is heavy or light, repetition of movement with a non-ergonomic posture may cause operators to develop occupational diseases such as the famous MSD (musculoskeletal disorders), back pain or muscle and joint pain. The costs of these diseases for the companies are increasing steadily each year.
In order to meet these challenges, it is necessary to find the best lifting device according to the operator's activity.
To do this, many parameters are taken into account, including:
- The weight, shape and nature of the load: the constraints are different for lifting a 25-kg plastic bag, a 250-kg wooden plank  or a one-tonne steel hull.
- Expected sequence: depending on the anticipated productivity level, certain solutions are to be preferred. For a rapid and repetitive sequence, lifting-tube handling solutions are the most suitable.
- Frequency of use: If the need is for ad hoc handling, it is preferable to use economic but slower and less manoeuvrable technologies such as hoists or suction-cup yokes. In contrast, for frequent use it is preferable to maximise productivity and take the sweat out of handling with a lifting-tube handling solution.
- Type of operation performed: Palletising, placing on shelf, insertion in production line etc
- Environment: inside, outside, in confined spaces or in huge work areas… the place where the lifting device is to be installed will influence the proposed solution.
