SPARTAN ENGINEERING an ISO 9001 2008 certified manufacturer of vertical reach equipment anticipates higher sales and growth with the increase in high rise constructions not just in metros but also in tier II cities. The company is one of the most preferred names in India’s lifting and material handling sector.

 

Safety is of paramount importance when working at heights. Considering a major shift from conventional and unsafe builder hoist to a more safe and reliable hoists,

Spartan, with it’s rich experience in manufacturing Hoists, has various models of Passenger and Material Hoists.

 

NEW ‘AVIATOR’ SERIES OF PASSENGER AND MATERIAL HOISTS:

The weight carrying capacity varies form 500 kgs to 2 Ton. These machines are used at both medium and high rise structures. Rather Spartan’s multi-functional hoist replaces Tower Crane for Rebar Lifting application. Spartan’s Multi-functional hoist has an attachment of Rebar Carrying Attachment, which carries Rebar measuring 12 mtrs through horizontal rebar attachment. Spartan also plans to manufacture Twin cage hoists in coming year and is at design stage.

 

ROPE SUSPENDED PLATFORMS (SRP):

Popularly known as Gandola. Spartan is a market leader in SRP and it is used for various finishing applications like plastering, putti application, painting etc. at the end of the project.

 

SAFETY FEATURES:

Safety is of paramount importance in equipment working at heights. All Spartan hoists come with Centrifugal Safety Device, which activates by centrifugal force and stops the hoist in case the hoist’s speed exceeds a specific speed limit. Many such safety factors are part of every single machine.

Control Panel in the hoist is one of the most advanced feature of Spartan’s hoists one would hardly find in any of Spartan’s competitors. It is provided with flash light for easy visibility, joystick for easy operation and emergency switches. The PLC functions cover lot of indicators like VFD Trip, Limit Switch Failure, Phase failure exit Door, Open Entry Door, Rack Search fault etc. The higher/ premium models also have a display screen, where the actual fault would be displayed for easy identification and repair. It is placed at a strategic position which would be easily viewed by the operator. These machines also come with mechanical lock and electrical sensors in critical areas like entry/ exit door, trap door, erection platform etc. This ensures the hoist does not start if any door is left open. To add to these, overload alarm indicator is also provided as an option. All these safety features makes Spartan’s hoists more reliable and competitive.

Spartan’s Rope Suspended Platforms also come with various safety features like Anti-Swing Device. Anti Swing Device is one of the most advanced feature of Spartan’s SRP, where it holds on the SRP and avoids swinging of SRP at higher heights and ensures operator’s safety. Spartan’s SRP also comes with Roof Attachment, where the SRP and the operator is safe from the falling debris or material from top while working. All these safety features in Spartan machines display the company’s commitment towards customer’s safety at site.

FEA analysis is carried out well in advance while designing, where machines are tested at various heights, at adverse climatic conditions through software. This gives a near to actual performance of the machine even before manufacturing. Each machine is designed considering its application, site conditions, safety, convenience, ease in operation etc.

 

TRAINING & SKILL DEVELOPMENT:

Spartan’s role doesn’t end at just selling the machines. Rather it start’s after selling the machines. The company’s main consumer is the operator. Spartan believes in training the operator for the right use, application and performance of the machine.
