Stertil–Koni have provided 12sets of 7.5t wireless mobile column lifts tothe new depots of Go North WestinBolton and Wigan.Transport ForGreaterManchester’sBee Network will eventually be the one–stop–shop for all local public transport and active travel journeys in the greater Manchester area. Championed by Local Mayor Andy Burnham, for the first time in 40 years bus services are under local control in Bolton, Wigan and parts of Bury, Salford and Manchester.
Each set ofST1075FWAlifts, comprises four wireless mobile columns,each offering a lifting capacity of 7.5 tonnes thereby providing an overall safe lifting capacity of 30 tonnes. Each column incorporates Stertil–Koni’s revolutionary ebright Smart Control System which allows workshop engineersto operate the columns individually, in pairs or in any other combination from any column in the set. Positioningof the wireless columns is alsototally flexible, enabling them to be used in any configuration around a vehicle. For added safety and performance, the ebright Smart Control System also shows how many columns in the set are being used plus the battery status of each column. Safety is further enhanced by an independent mechanical locking system, incorporated into each column, which allows technicians to securely lock the lift to prevent a vehicle from being inadvertently lowered.
The Stertil–Koni ST1075FWAheavy–duty lift is powered by long–life deep cycle batteries which provide optimum performance for at least a week on average before recharging is necessary. Also, batterylifeisprolongedduetothefactthat,unlikeascrew–lift,poweris onlyusedtoraiseavehiclethereforelesstimeisspentrechargingtheliftwhichiscarried outvia a 230v single phase supply. Importantly, with no cables on the workshop floor, the risk of tripping is removed, providing valuable health and safety benefits. The absence of power and communication cables means that set–up time is greatly reduced thereby making the system fully operational much more quickly.Significantly, the lift’s unique synchronisation system ensures a smooth lifting and lowering cycle, evenin the event of extremely uneven load distribution.Supplied complete with adjustable width forks, the Stertil–Koni ST1075FWA easily meets the challenge of lifting vehicles with differing tyre widths to ensure maximum versatility.
