Spotlight-Spartan Engineering

Leaders in Vertical Reach

An Indian OEM supplying quality equipment for high rise construction, this manufactures high-end equipment like hoists and suspended rope platforms. VIKRAM MEHTA, MD, SPARTAN ENGINEERING INDUSTRIES highlights the advanced features in their machines, which will hardly be found in any of its competitors.

 

Considering a major shift from conventional and unsafe builder hoist to a more safe and reliable hoists, Spartan has been at the forefront to ban the unsafe builder hoist from the beginning. Spartan, with its rich experience in manufacturing hoists, has various models of passenger and material hoists. The recently launched hoists series are branded ‘Aviator’ series of passenger and material hoists. The weight carrying capacity varies from 500 kg 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 applications.

 

Spartan’s multi-functional hoist has a rebar carrying attachment, which carries rebars measuring 12 meters through horizontal rebar attachment. Spartan also plans to manufacture twin cage hoists in the coming year, which is at the design stage currently. We also manufacture Suspended Rope 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.

 

 

DESIGN CAPABILITIES

Spartan has always believed and delivered the best designs when it comes to construction equipment, not only in the aesthetics but also design as in durability, ruggedness, and performance. Spartan boasts of around 30 in-house design professionals and is well equipped with all the necessary design software and tools like SolidWorks, etc. Each machine is manufactured after rigorous design stage, where best machines of the world in the similar capacity are researched, studied, and then designed to match international Standards. FEA analysis is carried out well in advance while designing, where machines are tested at various heights, in adverse climatic conditions using simulation 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.

 

 

SAFETY NET

Safety is of paramount importance in equipment working at heights. All our 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 our every single machine. Control Panel in the hoist is one of the most advanced features of our hoists you would hardly find in any of our competitor. 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 high-end 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 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. Our Rope Suspended Platforms also come with various safety features like Anti-Swing Device., which 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. Our 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 our machines display our commitment towards customer’s safety at site.

 

 

OPERATOR TRAINING

Our role does not end at just selling the machines. Rather it starts after selling the machines. Our main consumer is the operator. We believe in training the operator for the right use, application and performance of the machine. Our machine would perform well only if the operator maintains the machine well. We regularly conduct training programs at regular intervals after the machine is sold. We follow the principle of ‘Train the Trainer’. Our training staff is specialised and well trained in advance before he trains our customers’ team. Our specialised team trains the operator on the usage, application, maintenance and repair. Though we assure our immediate attendance on breakdown of the machine, we train them about how to use it efficiently so as to reduce the maintenance at the minimum. The training is conducted at both site and at office. Important training modules are shared with them wherever required like Do’s and Dont’s of using Bar Bending and Bar Cutting machines etc.

 

 

MARKET OUTLOOK

We will be able to revolutionise and achieve growth slowly. We have a lot of expectations from the prospects ahead in terms of business for our machineries. Moreover, we are also expecting positive growth from high rise constructions which are gaining prominence not just in metros but also in Tier-II cities. This also opens new growth avenues. We will be focusing on expanding our reach to these areas as well by expanding our dealership networks. We already have 8 branch offices. We are also focusing on our export business. We already have a dealer in Dubai and Sri Lanka and are getting good responses.
