Smart lifter

Hevilifts has developed a versatile system for lifting, lowering and tilting structures.

Hevilifts has developed a synchronised lift system for projects such as bridge jacking and launching, offshore weighing, pile testing and controlled lifting and lowering of structures.

The 12-point control and monitoring system hydraulically controls jacks and cylinders for the controlled movement and positioning of structures that are sensitive to movement and load.

The system can be controlled using touch screen technology that allows the operator to have full control and monitor all hydraulic and load channels and input control parameters such as lifting tolerance, overloading and maximum uplift.

The system has a high degree of control and the control speed altered to increase accuracy.

It can be operated in full ­control or manually for fine ­adjustment at individual positions for both load and displacement.

Also, it can be used to monitor deflections on structures during a specific period of time.

As well as offering highly controlled lifting and lowering, the system has a tilting capability. Recent projects on which it has been used include the Gatwick Airport passenger transfer system, and the A417 Townham viaduct in Gloucestershire.
