JDN Air Hoists Handle Difficult Foundry Conditions


Intense heat and air filled with dust and chemicals: the tough working conditions that characterise foundries demand the best from both men and machines. JDN Air Hoists are the perfect choice for these areas. Offering 100% duty ratings and minimum downtimes, they guarantee maximum productivity, no matter how hard the working conditions may be. Typical activities in a foundry are the handling of raw materials, casting moulds, cores and teeming ladles, as well as cast parts weighing up to several tonnes. JDN Air Hoists have proven their mettle in all of these areas for decades.

One example of this is the mini series with carrying capacities of 125 kg, 250 kg, 500 kg and 980 kg. These lightweight, compact hoists are also available with manual trolleys and in a manipulator version for the secure positioning of loads in a one-hand operation. For more challenging demands you can choose the extremely robust Profi series with carrying capacities starting from 250 kg – and if required – ranging up to 100 tonnes. All JDN Hoists are resistant to humidity, dust and temperatures from -20° C to +70° C (mini +50° C). The hoists of the mini series operate with an air pressure of 6 bar, while the flexible Profi’s operate with 4 bar or 6 bar. The air vane motor is suitable for lube-free operation and is very low-maintenance. Waiting times are kept to a minimum compared to electrically-driven hoists, thanks to the 100% duty ratings and frequent switching.
