Rol-A-Lift is the practical method of moving bulky and hard-to-handle loads. Rol-A-Lifts are ideal for handling large, awkward objects or heavy equipment that is difficult to maneuver or position, like refrigerator cases, safes, or machines. Yet they are versatile enough to safely handle fragile, sensitive equipment, like glass crates, computers, electrical panels and switchgear.
We recently installed two Modula Lifts at John Henry Foster Company located in Eagan, MN. They had been experiencing an increase in year-to-year sales over the past few years, and had also been adding additional product offerings for their customers. These factors caused John Henry Foster’s management to begin researching ways to expand their warehousing/storage capability. Management looked into various solutions, including a building expansion, and concluded that the acquisition of an automated storage solution (AS/RS) from Modula would not only free up space in their warehouse, but would also improve efficiencies in many other areas of their company. Check out this time-lapse video of the installation of their two Modula Lift VLMs that recently took place!
This customer needed to hold a fixture secure and then mount a part into that fixture. This configuration of overhead top running and under running cranes and a vacuum lifter made this possible.
Agricultural implement dealer purchased two new 5 ton under hung bridge cranes.
These cranes will service 4 bays and assist in replacing engines, transmission and combine heads in various tractors.
Customers have installed cranes for this application in Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, North and South Dakota.
