Expected to be one of the largest LiftEx events to date visitors this year will be treated to a number of firsts at the show, including its first Innovation Awards competition. LEEA are still taking submissions so there is still time to enter your most ground-breaking piece of kit.

As with previous years, there will also be the opportunity for exhibitors to present their products, services and thoughts on various sectors during a series of presentations at the show.

Presentations currently scheduled include:
– ‘RFID Sling Tags’ by Holland 1916
– ‘An Industry First Innovative Lifting Equipment Testing Machine’ by Worlifts
– ‘RFID Radio Frequency Identification Technology’ by RUD Chains

With only a few weeks left until LiftEx a number of exhibitors are already geared up and ready for the event. Lifting equipment manufacturer Red Rooster International is among these, and will be displaying its range of products and services at the show.

One of the focal points on the company’s stand at the event will be the Kito CB-ATEX manual chain hoist. Designed for work in environments where the risk of triggering explosions is significant, the hoist is available in capacities up to 3t and can operate at a maximum temperature of 135°C.

Constructed with copper coated load hooks, ‘Push’ or ‘Geared’ trolleys fitted with solid bronze wheels on the 3t models, the company claims that these manual chain hoists are some of their highest quality products.

An additional option of overload protection is also available across the range.

Red Rooster’s own radio remote control range for use with Red Rooster’s own series of air hoists will also be exhibited together with the company’s improved range of load cells offering reduced weight and a host of extra features. Red Rooster is keen to get across the extent to which the availability of in-house manufacturing and electronics workshops helps the company to design and produce an extensive range of both tensile and compressive Load Cells.

Load cells produced by Red Rooster can be supplied with self-indicating, cabled or telemetry displays with various options on the type of outputs as needed for each application.

Spreader manufacturer Modulift will also be returning for this year’s event to showcase its portfolio of spreader solutions for all applications.

The company has been busy growing its business and applying its solutions to a range of industries, with particular success in the UK nuclear industry. The company says its has provided everything from modular spreader beams to custom-designed and bespoke lifting beams to update nuclear facilities such as sludge packaging plants.

Aside from nuclear the company’s MOD 400 spreader beam has been used in high profile projects such as the restoration of Southend.

Modulift staff will be on hand at the company’s stand at the show and will be available to discuss the range of solutions Modulift products can address at the show.

The event runs from 10am to 5pm on 29th November and 9am to 4pm on 30th November.
