Palamatic supply a complete range of overhead support systems individually rated for use with vacuum lifting units. Optimised positioning of the supporting gantry or crane can be a crucial factor in the successful implementation of a new, suspended load handling system. Transportation of the load must be ergonomically managed to prevent unnecessary strains or physical stress on the operator. Palamatic designs the lifting aid to the task and the crane system to the process environment, with the occupational health of the operator always at the forefront of considerations. Ergonomically, the lifting aid is only as good as the gantry from which it is suspended. Palamatic gantries are manufactured in mild steel as standard and are available in optional hygienic stainless steel. This design minimises internal cavities and flat surfaces to prevent product build-up and facilitate clean down.
