Discuss about the products exhibited in the expo?


We have exhibited mainly GJJ passenger hoist that has different speed such as 46 to 96-metre per minute. GJJ has sold hundreds of units with 120 metre per minute, which is 2 metre per second. It also has curved hoist for cooling towers, lean hoist, industrial hoist, hoist for mines and has introduced new technology called Artificial Intelligence hoist (AI hoist). In AI hoist, there are many sensors which will automatically sense verticality, any loose connection on the bolt, any malfunctioning of limit switchers, electrical loose connection, no of people entering into the cage and oils level i.e. lubrication system. Everything will be monitored & alarm the operator and stop the hoist. The new technology was displayed last month in Bauma China. We think this is the future hoist which will take care of everything. Even without a technician, one can operate hoist from Mumbai while sitting in another city. This is the new technology and commercial production is likely to start in 2019.


Moreover, GJJ has come up with Bi directional bus-bar system instead of cable and cable trolley which will face frequent breaking of cables on job site. There is bidirectional bus-bar with crawlers - a new technology that has come with the bus-bar system. Cost increase is negligible, so bus-bar systems in hoist would be the future. We have also displayed anti-collision system used to avoid collision between tower cranes. We sold around 260 systems in India to almost all corporate companies and got booking of around 16 anti-collision systems in the expo.
