The security of drinking water supply for the municipality of Oftringen was ensured with the new construction of the Rägelerhof groundwater pumping station. The GIS double-girder overhead crane proved to be a reliable and indispensable helper during the installation of the equipment and even ensured that construction costs could be saved thanks to its low construction height.
A successful small crane concept is in use in the workshop of Vukadin Metallbau. The height-optimised GISKB crane system ensures maximum use of space and is an important helper for internal logistics.
Also in this year we hold a 2-day apprentice camp. Our trainees were challenged both mentally and physically in group competitions.
Centralschweizerische Kraftwerke AG (CKW) recently put the substation in Rothenburg into operation. For maintenance purposes, a GISKB light crane system with a load of 1000 kg was installed in the transformer room of the new building.
We congratulate our trainees on successfully completing their apprenticeship and wish the young professionals all the best for the future.
With the two models GP1600 and GP2500, Swiss manufacturer GIS is expanding the capacity of its successful GP series of electric chain hoists to 6300 kg. At the same time, the new GHF/GMF generation of manual and motorised trolleys is being launched. It stands out with a higher lifting capacity adapted to the GP series with optimised quiet running and extended service life. An steplessly variable flange width also facilitates on-site installation.
An innovative rigging system from GIS ensures maximum flexibility and safety at Samsung Hall, Zurich.
A GIS aluminum crane with vacuum handling system was installed at Pilatus Aircraft Ltd this spring. The combination of the smooth aluminum profile together with the compact vacuum lifter allow a fast, safe handling of the parts coming from the storage systems.
GIS AG continues to invest in the future and has added a 4-axis horizontal machining center of the type Makino a81nx to its modern machinery.
After a short setup and test phase, the CNC machine will be used for the processing of aluminum die-cast parts and will further increase the efficiency of the series production.
