        quickly into the existing platform and the extensive modular system. This is the guarantee that the lifter generation will adapt easily to future customer requirements and innovations.

        Our experts design and build every handling system in close cooperation with the end user. EXPRESSO‘s handling consultants first examine and discuss the task
        on your premises, and then prepare an individual handling analysis. Within a few days, you will receive a detailed offer for the corresponding handling concept.
      • BalanceLift Systems

      • BALANCELIFT – PNEUMATIC LIFTING CYLINDER FOR ERGONOMIC LOAD HANDLING

        An enormous range of vacuum, pneumatic, magnetic, and mechanical load handling attachments and gripping devices offers application-oriented solutions for handling the most varied goods weighing up to 300 kg, and with lifting heights up to 4 m. Simple, continuous and precise manoeuvrability via up/down controls or with the balancer function (without control buttons – the load is balanced automatically). In this way, the operator always has perfect control of the load – without any physical effort, and with natural working movements. This increases productivity, and contributes towards maintaining employee health.

        Load handling is pneumatic, i.e. without a connection to electric power. All that is needed is a compressed air supply (6 bar). Because compressed air is only required for lifting, this type of energy supply is extremely cost effective. Moreover, the BalanceLift offers flexible mounting options: In combination with BalanceRail overhead rails, floor or wall-mounted crane booms, with the mobile BalanceStand or BalancePort, or mounted in existing customer installations, the BalanceLift system optimizes the necessary handling tasks at the workplace.

        In close cooperation with the end user, our experts design and build customer-specific vacuum, pneumatic, magnetic, and mechanical load handling attachments. EXPRESSO‘s handling consultants first examine and discuss the task on your premises, and then prepare an individual handling analysis.

          Answering the following questions is important for selecting the perfect solution for your loading task:
          • What weight must the plate/board be able to support?
          • How will the plate/board be loaded? – e.g. fork-lift truck, pallet truck, hand truck?
          • What is the height difference, e.g. between loading ramp and truck?
          • What distance must be bridged?
          • Whatever the question, EXPRESSO has the answer.
      • LOADING TECHNOLOGY

      • Our extensive range of loading technology equipment provides everything that assists, simplifies, and makes vehicle loading/unloading safer.

All products and solutions are featured by top quality, long service life, and utmost safety.
          • WHEEL CHOCKS

          • The simplest way to immobilize a truck is to use our wheel chocks, which are available in various sizes. They reliably prevent the truck from rolling during loading/unloading operations.

            Our wheel chocks are available as hard-wearing rubber or steel versions.
          • TRAFFIC LIGHT SET IN COMBINATION WITH ELECTRIC WHEEL CHOCKS

          • By coupling traffic lights and electric wheel chocks, loading/unloading operations can be made safe in an economic manner.
            Bay gate and/or an adaptable ramp can be networked with the wheel chock and the traffic lights.
            By means of corresponding colours (red/green), the traffic lights in the building or outside on the dock provide information about when loading/unloading operations can start or when the truck driver can remove the chocks safely.
            The system is independent of possible access connections between truck and dock, i.e. regardless of whether an adaptable ramp, dock board, or some other device is used, operator safety is ensured.
          • AUTOMATIC TRUCK IMMOBILIZER

          • For increased safety during loading/unloading operations we recommend our automatic truck immobilizer –
            named Stop Trucks.
          • SAFETY ZONE FOR PERSONNEL PROTECTION

          • EN Standard 349 specifies that a minimum safety gap of 500 mm must be provided between dock edge and truck.
            The gap serves to minimize accidents and crushing injuries.
            EXPRESSO offers three suitable solutions.
          • WHEEL GUIDES

          • Wheel guides simplify truck manoeuvering.
            They ensure that the truck reverses to the dock at the correct angle, thereby protecting the building and possible loading equipment from damage.
