Latest offshore Project by Airpes

In our daily job we carry out a large number of projects in many different sectors. Today we want to present you a customized solution for an offshore project. This is for the wind sector; with which we are used to work with. A brand new project for a client with whom we have already worked before: Adwen.

Adwen needed a brand new nacelle lifting toolkit and lifting equipment. They contacted Airpes and found a tailor made solution. We find an option that fits their needs in a safe way. Airpes is in charge of the design and manufacture of this lifting equipment.

 

The taylor made solution: a nacelle lifting beam

This tool consists of:

  • A main beam of a circular section of steel tube

  • Two trunnions attached to each side

 

Perpendicular to the main beam there is another beam attached. Its function is to help guide the tool during hoisting maneuvers. The hoisting is being made with a synthetic set of slings connecting both the tool and the nacelle AD8.

We design both main beam and trunnion to accept aluminum wedges. This allows adjusting the tool’s longitudinal and transverse angle.

Also, there are 2 rear supports with sliding pins. This allows a fast hook and release of the slings with the rear part of the nacelle AD8. We design the tool for the full nacelle’s lifting, after installing the transmission tree in the 600t. Adwen 8 MW generators.

Electromagnet beam and AGV Car for Gestamp 01 | News | Airpes

Electromagnet beam and AGV Car for Gestamp 01 | News | Airpes

 

We’ve got a new on demand solution to talk about. North American Company Gestamp Wind Steel USA needs to lift Steel plates up to 55 feet long.

Airpes is responsible of designing, manufacturing and testing an extensible electromagnet, as well as a transfer car for this project.

 

 

Magnetic lifting beam

The electromagnet beam consists of four brackets assembled on the main body. Also, it consists on a bracket assembled on each of the two telescopic beams. Each holder contains 2 permanent electromagnet modules.

Electromagnets magnetize the steel plates’ surface, avoiding possible damages and deformations. This also allows a safe transport during the process of lifting and storing the plates.

Telescopic beams increase or decrease the distance between modules. You can select how many modules are magnetized.

Its is possible to use different selections of the magnetic lifting beam. It depends on the section of the tool to be magnetized and the lifting load.

 

Electromagnet beam and AGV Car for Gestamp 00 | News | Airpes

AGV Transfer Car

The self-propelled and remote-controlled electric transfer car comes with power cable. This is for a transport through two metal rails with a greatest slope of 3%. This cart purpose is to transport stored steel plates on a polyethylene-covered bed .

We equip this AGV Car with 2 assembled electric motors that move two of the four steel wheels. The electric motors allow a largest speed without load of 130 ft / min. For safety reasons, when the weight sensor system detects full loading, it reduces speed to 7 ft / min.

When the load protrudes from the cart, we add more support: 4 folding arms at each corner of the cart, and 8 along the sides.

The transport car includes a radar system on the front and rear for obstacle detection. This includes objects or people along the road of the AGV car. When detecting an obstacle, the transfer car slows down and, at the smallest distance, it stops. Additionally, there are end-of-road induction sensors on the AGV car to stop it at the end.

To control the movement of this tool, at Airpes we supplied:

  • 2 remote controllers
  • 1 wireless controller
  • Another controller connected via cable to the car

Today we bring you 6 safety tips to make sure that your lifting beam is working fine and that you and your company work in a safe environment.

6 tips for a safe lifting beam handling

 

  1. Choose the right type of lifting beam

First of all, before you choose the type of lifting beam that you need, you have to be sure about your project’s real needs. You may need to provide multiple lifting points, handle out of balance loads or allow special load attachments.

At Airpes we design many types of lifting beams and we can adapt their design to your company’s needs. We listen to our customers and create an on demand lifting beam that completely fits your needs.

 

We design the following lifting beams:

  • Fixed lifting beams
  • H lifting beams
  • Moveable centre of gravity lifting beams
  • Hydraulic powered lifting beams
  • Lifting beams with levelling system
  • Motorized rotating lifting beams

 

  1. Make sure that your load is stable

When the attachment points on the load are located above the center of gravity, the load will be stable for sure. In case the lifting beam is connected to the load by slings, you will need to take care about the load, making it stable.

 

  1. Always keep in mind safe use instructions

Don’t forget about the basics of safety. Check our 10 tips for a safe handling and weighing including qualified operators, the best environment possible or the pre-operational inspection.

 

  1. Test your lifting beam

Before you can put it to work, there’s nothing like a test in a safe environment. If you already have a lifting beam that you need to check, contact us and you can test it on our own test bench.

 

  1. Store and handle the lifting beam correctly

Storage is very important, since the way you keep your lifting equipment define how will they perform in the future. Make sure you do it correctly, so anytime you need to use it, it works fine.

 

  1. Keep a regular maintenance of the lifting beam

There are no big requirements for the maintenance of lifting beams, but it is important to inspect it regularly to avoid any performance issues.

7 tips for a safe crane operation

7 tips for a safe crane setup 00 | Airpes

7 tips for a safe crane setup 00 | Airpes

 

When you carry out a crane operation, all precaution is essential. In addition to having a lifting equipment that follows all current regulations, there are a few tips that you can use to make your operation much safer.

 

7 tips for a crane operation

 

  1. Create a checklist before the crane operation

One of the easiest ways to work when you have a number of requirements to fulfill: write them on a list and check all of them, do not move on to the next one until the current is completed. These are some of the most important “checks” on your list:

  • Check hoist
  • Check loading chain
  • Check position of hook

And remember: it is very important to do a double check, to make sure that everything is ok with the operation.

 

  1. Check surroundings and ground conditions / Identify hazards

There are cranes way more prepared than others to work in different terrains, but it is always important to check the surroundings, as well as ground conditions, ensuring that the lifting system is perfectly fixed. Don’t forget to check the surrounding area, detecting possible hazards, getting ahead of them before you get on the crane.

 

  1. Check your levels

Before starting to work on the crane, it is important for the crane operator to check the oil and gas levels.

 

  1. Turn off your cellphone

Distractions add danger to the job, specially on crane operations that include lifting and handling systems. Turn off your cell phone when you’re working, as well as other similar distractions.

 

 

  1. Follow the Safe Working Load

The SWL (Safe Working Load) defines the maximum load a system can lift. It is essential to follow it, because if we add more weight than recommended, we will be causing an accident.

 

  1. Monitor every step of the lift

Another way of avoiding danger is to monitor every step of the lifting process. Do not lose sight of everything that is happening and, if you see anything suspicious or out of the ordinary, stop everything and repair it.

 

  1. Take all precautions

It is very important to follow common sense and take all necessary precautions to protect workers and the environment.

Crane safety: 10 tips for a safe handling and weighing

10 tips safe handling weighing 00 | Airpes
10 tips safe handling weighing 00 | Airpes

 

In a job that includes cranes and lifting projects, an efficient and safe execution is expected. Safety of both workers and equipment is essential. For this reason, today we share with you 10 tips to follow so you lifting and weighing operations are as safe as possible.

 

The best crane safety tips

 

  1. Operators have to be qualified

It’s not only about having experience and knowledge, but also little details like as periodically reviewing manuals and rules of the handling equipment to use.

  1. Find the best enviroment for a safe crane operation

Something as simple as turning your phone off when you’re in the cab is essential to avoid distractions that could compromise your lifting job.

  1. Pre-operational inspection of the handling equipment

¿Did you know that 74% of crane accidents happen during routine operations? It is very important to inspect the state of your handling and weighing equipment before starting to maneuver.

  1. Do a checklist with everything you need to ensure the cranes safety

A very good way to keep track of everything is to make a list of actions to check before starting to use the equipment. You won’t start until all is checked.

  1. Clear visibility

You can have the best lifting and weighing equipment, but don’t forget about the environment you’re working on. Make sure you have full visibility, that there are no dead spots and that you can fully control the situation at all times.

 

 

  1. Ensure loads and capacities

Loads to be moved or elevated must be well secured and follow all safety measures regarding shape and weight.  According to a study by Arnold & Itkin in 2015, 80% of accidents involving loads in the United States are related to an excess of recommended weight.

  1. Only one person can control the lift

When a worker is in charge of lifting the load, he must be solely responsible for it, avoiding confusion over responsibilities and tasks performed.

  1. Do not stand under a load

One of the most basic overhead crane safety tips in any workplace where you carry out handling and lifting projects: never stay under a suspended load.

  1. Do not leave the load suspended in air

In the same line, neither should the load be left suspended. Once you start moving it, it is better to finish it to avoid any kind of accident.

  1. Finish things properly

Avoiding rush and staying calm throughout the process will make the end as comfortable and safe as possible.

 

The safest handling and weighing equipment

 

At Airpes we take safety very seriously. We follow all current regulations and we make sure to test the equipment before you can use it.

If you want to know more, don’t hesitate to contact us. We will listen to your situation and will advise you with the best option for your company’s projects.

Get to know our hydraulic adjustable lifting beam

Today we want to talk to you about our hydraulic adjustable lifting beam with C.O.G. (Centre of Gravity) adjustable, used for lifting in a G9X Nacelle field at 80t maximum load, and how we adapt it to fulfill our needs.

This lifting beam has installed a hydraulic system that slides some casings on the structural profile that conform the device. This move let to level the load respect the axes “X” and “Y” to correct the off-centred of the centre of gravity that could exist in the Nacelle and consequently to level it respect the horizontal plane.

A remote control by radio-frequency is included with the hydraulic lifting beam. The levelling can be done maneuvering both axis (“X” axis and “Y” axis) together or independently.

The procedure to adapt the lifting beam

Hydraulic adjustable lifting beam | Handling | Airpes

At the beginning, all the parts coloured in red have to be removed from the unit.

Also, due to the parts that are welded to the structure that have to be removed, it will have to be done with the cutting flame, and then the area must have to be healthy with a grinding tool.

Due to the sparks that will appear while this operation occur, the location has to be a free of volatile gas area for a radius of 10 meter minimum and has to be an airy zone.

 

 

Hydraulic adjustable lifting beam | Handling | AirpesThen, all the components coloured in blue have been put in place to retrofit the hydraulic adjustable lifting beam up to be able to lift a G9X nacelle.

Handling & weighing on demand solution: a rotator

Today we want to show you one of Airpes’ on demand solutions that include a rotator and nacelles. A project in which we designed, manufactured and installed the rotator, while handling and elevating the nacelles.

 

The rotator, an on demand solution for the wind sector

A brazilian company that manufactures wind turbine towers contacted us to provide with a solution to their need. They needed a rotator up to 21,5t in conformance with OSHA and UL standards.

What made this project so delicate was the very difficult handling of the nacelles during the process. With that in mind, the well been of the workers as the operation was completely safe. Along with the rotator, we also included a system to deliver and handle oversized components.

Hydraulic system to move nacelles with lifting beams

Nacelles Wind Sector | News | Airpes

Airpes on demand solution for lifting beams in the wind sector

One of Airpes’ biggest challenges in the wind sector was the handling and transport of nacelles in WTG Towers. This is one of our on demand solutions we designed and manufactured for a company in the wind sector. The installation of the nacelles in the towers was extremely difficult but in the end, a success.

The client had difficulty aligning the nacelle to the tower using the current lifting beam, and that’s when Airpes entered into the project. We took the current lifting beam designed to move the nacelle and modified it by creating a hydraulic system that allows to move ± 3º the horizontal axis.

This tailored solution was a success, and after its testing in France, it was introduced worldwide.

We want to show you some pictures of this project including the lifting beam and the nacelle to transport. Check out the impressive pictures of the operation on our exclusive gallery.

On demand solution | Electromagnets, Autec remote control and eagle

Airpes’ newest on demand solution for a steel company

Airpes designed a new on demand solution with its brand new Eagle electronic limiter, this time for Rail Slider, a Steel company based in Port Bou, Spain and a long time Airpes’ customer.

Rail Slider is a transit management company for Steel products. In 2013 they started to offer transit services for packages between 6 and 24 meters long . The conditions in their facilities were not optimal for productivity and safety, so they needed new equipment.

Airpes provided two sets of high-powered electromagnets, ready to be installed in each one of the two 32 t. cranes on the ground. These systems are able to handle packages up to 14 m. long and 5 t. load each.

The official Airpes’ distributor on the area (Girona Elevació), conducted the suitability of the cranes.

 

Systems used on the Airpes’ lifting solution

• Airpes’ Eagle

The Eagle systems installed control the overload and all safety points.

Also, they control the SWP (Safe Working Period) and the weight information at all times.

• The new series of Autec remotes

The 32 moves available on the Autec remote controls allow the crane operator to use each one of the cranes with all handling equipment that the customer has on the ground (Lifting beams, coil tongs, magnets etc.).

Following european standards, the results are visible: production multiplies by 5 and there is no risk of damaging the product as previously to the solution when it was manipulated with chains.

Airpes designs a handling and weighing system for Brugg

Weighing systems | On Demand Solutions | Airpes

Airpes delivered a 60t handling and weighing lifting equipment to the Swiss company BRUGG KABEL AG with 0.1% accuracy in weighing of wire coils.

This a very important on demand solution for us, since we designed and manufactured this lifting equipment for BRUGG.

The client had an old crane with an old handling system. In the need to transport larger and heavier wire coils, a new crane and a new lifting equipment were presented.

Airpes also installed the AMR130RE Viewer showing the precise weight of the crane throughout the workspace. A radio system was also incorporated to the lifting equipment to send the weight information to the computer, keeping it stored .

Thanks to this new lifting equipment designed for this solution, the manipulation of the coils is carried out safely and quickly. Since the new system incorporates weighing, a large space is released on the floor where the old weighing system used to be.

Airpes’ distributor in Switzerland, Hausherr, managed and installed the crane.

Airpes uses 2x50t rail transfer cars to transport a wind turbine plate roll

Rail transfer car | News | Airpes Lifting Equipment

Airpes performed an on demand solution for a Brazilian company, using 2x50t rail transfer cars to transport wind turbine plate rolls. It was an extremely difficult transportation (external diameter of the wind towers plate roll is between 2.000 mm and 4.500 mm) across the production area.

The main problem was that the ferrule needed to be removed from the production unit, at a different height, and transported 60 meters.

Airpes designed, manufactured, tested and installed a system composed by two independent cars with a storage support for the plate rolls that can be lifted up hydraulically from 800 mm up to 1.400 mm, to remove the ferrule from the production unit and lift it down for the transport. The capacity of the two cars is up to 100t (2X50T each)

The safety and control system was composed by:
• Radio remote control by joystick with data feedback on the radio remote
• Control of distribution of the weight on each trolley
• Synchronous movement of the cars via Wi-Fi, and positioning by using Götting reader and Tags installed on the rails ↔ car speed control
• Cars equipped with security bumpers (front/back).

Goals achieved:
• Ferrules Handling with extreme care with the rail transfer cars.
• Global safety system (also in the cars) allows doing maneuvers faster and safer.

Permanent Electromagnet ATEM-8

Permanent-Electro Magnetic System ATEM-8 | Airpes Lifting Equipment

Airpes introduces its new Telescopic Permanent-Electro Magnetic System. A permanent electromagnet gives the customer the maximum options with its modular system allowing lifting or lowering the modules.

Our permanent electromagnet comes with its own modular system that allows increasing or decreasing the modules according to the particularity of each magnet beam.

Mechanics of the permanent electromagnet

The Telescopic Permanent Electromagnet ATEM-8 is activated by double effect cylinders and single rod, of 63 mm and 36 mm. The system holds the cylinder with stumps on the head, allowing a superior pushability and it’s also 4 times stronger than similar products.

This permanent electromagnet consists of large hot rolled steel pipes, made to accommodate hydraulic cylinders larger than the other companies’. This implies more security.

Slippage is done by high density polyethylene SODER 500 skates, enabling, unlike others, to adapt the product to commercial profiles. The permanent electromagnet system creates an hydraulic-oil mini PBX with flow divider to ensure an equal extension of both arms and, also, keep the system in balance.

Permanent electromagnet modules

Permanent electromagnet modules are of magnetic high cappacity and can withstand more than 4000 kg.
The added value of the modules is the electric-electronic management of the magnetic signal and its power range up to Full Mag to grab and separate plates of a stack.

Electric permanent electromagnet

Airpes develops its own technology permanent electromagnet control, adjustable in all parameters:

  • Permanent electromagnet power control (reducing costs and repairs, an easy modification and 4 pre selectable power levels)
  • Electrical box with a phase meter to detect a right network connection and disable any operation in case there is no connection.
  • Switchboard control by PLC (allows customization and technical assistancia via modem).
  • Two detectors instead of one as a security measure to detect any suspended system.

Choose the best permanent electromagnet

Contact us and we will help you finding the best permanent electromagnet for you and your company. We will assist you and offer our expertise to find the best solution to your needs.

Extending our distribution contract with AUTEC

Autec | News | Lifting Equipment Airpes

AIRPES is extending its contract with AUTEC, a company specialised in radio remote control systems. Thanks to this agreement, AIRPES will continue to distribute the Italian company’s remote control systems in Spain for five more years. This contract strengthens an alliance that has been ongoing for seven years and right from the word go, it has meant new challenges and brought great satisfaction to both companies.

The relationship with AUTEC began in 2003 with distribution of their products in the industrial sector in Spain and Portugal. The choice of the AUTEC brand over other remote control manufacturers was due to the exceptional quality of their goods. After meeting their management team we saw many similarities with our company’s goals: quality, internationalisation of the company and professionalism. This, together with their exceptional customer service, led us to extend our contract with them for the first time in 2005. Now we have mutually agreed to extend the contract again for five additional years.
