Alimak presents hoist upgrade at ConExpo, Las Vegas

Alimak will exhibit the high-speed construction hoist Alimak Scando 650 FC-S 35/50 at ConExpo, North America’s largest construction tradeshow. The new hoist has several interesting features with increased payload, larger car size and enhanced intelligence.

Extra large hoist door
One new feature that will be showcased for the first time at the fair is a new extra wide door. It has been developed to further improve logistics and productivity for construction companies and rental fleet owners.

A new large vertical sliding door can be mounted on the hoist cars long side (c-side) to improve logistics and productivity furthermore. The new door has an opening width of 4.2 m and an opening height of 2.5 m increasing its size by 30% compared to Alimak’s previously largest door. The increased door size and rigid threshold allows for larger and heavier loads.

The new configuration enables easy unloading directly from the truck into the hoist car using a forklift and requiring less storage area at ground level which is a major benefit on confined sites. The hoist can thereby also set the tower crane free to do other jobs.

Wireless call system
A new wireless call system AliCall will also be displayed at ConExpo. It offers wireless communication between hoist car and landings and improves the usability as the operator can view the designated landings directly on the screen. AliCall supports up to 128 landings and has automatic call clearing at landing. It will lower the installation cost through shorter installation time and less hard wiring.

Alimak will be joined on the stand by CoxGomyl and Manntech, industry leaders in facade access solutions and Alimak Service, our service provider. ConExpo is the largest construction trade show in the Americas.
