Originally invented as an internal means of work facilitation at toolcraft, our Lifting Tool has become a sought-after product. After spotting the motorised tool in our Spalt mould making plant, several customers and suppliers spontaneously asked for similar solutions to their specific needs. One of them was Exeron, a leading manufacturer of spark erosion (EDM) and milling machines.
toolcraft attaches great importance to a healthy work environment. In our mould making plant, employees must increasingly load machines with very heavy pallets (with a total weight of up to 320 lbs.). Recognising that this represented a health hazard in the long term, a lifting tool was developed to solve the problem.
While there was already a model available on the market, it proved insufficient, as the pallets have to be moved not only in linear directions back and forth or up and down, but also sideways and along a rotary angle of 100 degrees. Therefore, the Engineering team at toolcraft was asked to develop a powered solution.
With its competence for solutions, the Engineering team at toolcraft has developed an absolutely unique lifting tool, although initially not conceived for sales. A perfect example of our passion for innovation, followed through from the first idea to realisation.
