Next generation ergonomic lifting trolleys

04 May 2017

Today we're launching a new series of electric lifting trolleys for ergonomic handling of reels, drums, boxes, crates and more. Their modular construction allows for easy adaptation to varying needs and applications. The trolleys, handling goods up to 250 kg, streamline the handling of e.g. reels and drums, saving both money and resources while contributing to a safe and ergonomic work environment.


 


Our electric lifting trolleys have helped create an efficient, ergonomic, and safe work environment in everything from food- to car manufacturing for decades. The new generation trolleys being launched today will contribute to further streamlining and improving ergonomics in industries worldwide. That's what we call smart lifting for efficient and ergonomic businesses!




The global hygiene and forest products company SCA is one of our many happy customers. Their production unit in Falkenberg, Sweden was among the first to try the new ergonomic lifting trolleys. You can read more about their experience here.

Ergonomic tyre lifting

21 April 2017

Handling car tyres can be hard and uncomfortable work; strenuous for back, shoulders and knees. Handling tyres for trucks or other large vehicles is even heavier.


We have created a number of ergonomic solutions, relieving the strain of handling big and heavy tyres, making the work easy, effortless and safe. Our tools for normal car tyres and for big truck or tractor tyres make tyre handling more efficient, while saving workers from the strain of heavy manual handling.




No matter if you prefer to work with a vacuum lift or an electric lifting trolley, we have the tools for you. Read more about our solutions for tyre handling, or contact TAWI to learn more.



Efficient and ergonomic crate handling

06 April 2017

Crate handling should be effortless and easy. Knowing that every business has their individual needs, we have developed a number of different solutions for handling crates in an ergonomic and efficient manner. We have crate handling tools for our vacuum lifts, the ViperHoist wire hoist, and Protema electric lifting trolleys. All designed to make your crate handling easy and efficient.




With a forked tool mounted on VacuEasylift you can easily lift crates and move them from one place to another in an ergonomic manner. If you need to turn and tilt the crate, we add a couple of suction cups to help keep a steady grip on the container while contents are being emptied.

Our Protema trolleys offer a wide variety of solutions for crate handling. Regardless if you need to lift high, move fast, tilt to empty the contents, or something else; we have a solution for your crate handling.

Great solutions for the wood processing industry

21 February 2017

At TAWI, our focus is not on products, but on providing solutions to your specific needs. Our devoted team of skilled design engineers work closely together with our experienced installation engineers to design and manufacture customised products that meet your specific requirements.


Here is one special solution that our engineers produced for a customer who needed to handle wooden planks up to 10 meters. A TAWIGrip is mounted on a  Lyftman steel crane system, installed on wooden beams with extensions and struts to reach the desired level of suspension for the crane system and the tool. The tool, combined with an electrical chain trolley, is equipped with four suction cups and a fully integrated handle. This allows the operator to easily transport the large planks to a saw machine, using the TAWIGrip tool. Easy, ergonomical, and efficient.

See the system in action here.

Speaking of wood, we have also developed some great solutions for lifting and tilting big wooden sheets, doors etc. With an extended, flexible handle, adapted to the size of the sheet, the operator can easily control the load from a comfortable and safe distance.

In this specific solution, the TAWIGrip is suspended in a Lyftman under-braced jib arm, allowing the operator to move their 80 kg wooden doors easily, even though the working area is small and ceiling height is low.

The door is gripped and picked up from a  vertical position and tilted 90 degrees into a horizontal position. It is rotated 90 degrees in the horisontal plane and then tilted to be placed in vertical position in the rack.



TAWIGrip vacuum gripper is an ergonomical solution for lifting, tilting and rotating sheet metal, glass and laminated panels. With a safe, two-handed release function, easy-to-use control board and a light weight design it makes heavy lifting easy.
