The ultra-portable davit crane is available in maximum 500lbs and 1,000lbs capacities, each available with three bases: pedestal, socket (flush-mount) or wall-mount.

The Aluma-Lite 500 weighs at 24lbs, while the Aluma-Lite 1,000 weighs 47lbs.

Both fold flat for easy storage or transportation, are made of aerospace/military-grade aluminium, and are available with manual winch (including drill drive adapter), and AC or DC electric winches. They also boast a durable, powder-coated finish, and no tools are needed for assembly/disassembly.

Oz Lifting will display a variety of davit cranes, hoists and lifting components at ProMat.

For example, the Tele-Pro davit crane will again be on show, as will several stainless steel products, designed for use in corrosive environments, including hoists, beam clamps, trolleys, and a manual winch that boasts a drill-adaptor feature. Spark-resistant hoists and trolleys will be of interest to exhibitors too.

Steve Napieralski, president at Oz Lifting, said: “As with all products in our range, the new davit cranes fill voids in the material handling marketplace. As such, we expect the [Aluma-Lite and Longreach] davits to be especially popular, but our composite products always seem to attract attention.”

ProMat features over 900 exhibits from leading solution providers and a comprehensive educational conference of more than 150 sessions focusing on best-in-class solutions for manufacturing and supply chain operations. Exhibits will represent all segments of the material handling, logistics and transportation industry, from traditional, manual equipment to computerised, automated systems and smart, connected supply chain technologies.

Napieralski added: “Having that many exhibitors should draw a lot of attendees, and Chicago being a central location should help as well. The cons, however, are you can get lost in the maze of exhibitors. We plan on getting the word out that we will be exhibiting and will be inviting a lot of distributors.

“The educational sessions are good for the industry. Anytime you can offer learning, those attending are there for a reason. They will gain a new concept or learn something new that helps their business.”

Oz Lifting will exhibit at Booth S122 at the ProMat show. The Winona, Minnesota-based manufacturer will have a 10x15ft booth.
