Dalmec Austraila is the sole distributor of Dalmec Manipulators - Lift Assist Devices for Australia and New Zealand.
We supply the widest range of Industrial Manipulators (Lift Assist Devices) with custom designed toolings (End Effectors) all specifically designed to suit your application.
The first of the Dalmec hook lift installations has been completed at Dulux Trade Centre (DTC) Preston and DTC West Melbourne.
One of the actions from the recent Manual Handling Break Through Team was the purchase and install of lifting devices for the DTC's. The devices that were selected were the DALMEC compressed air driven "Hook Lifts". This model was chosen for its simple use, ease of install and its ability to eliminate the weight of the product being lifted. The Hook lift has a reach of approximately 3 metres and from the picture of the DTC Preston install you can see that the Hook lift can easily reach all of the areas that require manual lifts for the tinting section of DTC operations.
The employees at DTC Preston and DTC West Melbourne have been using the lift for a few weeks now and are providing some great feedback.
Barry Saunders, Area Stores Coordinator "Once the staff get used to the lifting device they love it. It is a slight change in order from the way we used to do it but it takes away the hard slog. One team member tinted a couple of pallets the other day and they commented on not feeling tired at the end of the job"
Jesse, Adam and Andrew from West Melbourne all commented on the reduction in fatigue levels compared with doing the job manually. "It's great, there's no stress on my back or shoulders and I don't get tired."
Rodney Morrison, the DTC Manager added "I used the hook lift yesterday to tint over one hundred 15 litre drums, to find at the end of the task there was no strain on my back and i still had plenty of energy to go for the rest of the day."
A 15L pail is usually lifted nine times, which represents in excess of 280 kg's that's manually handled before it's sold. This Dalmec Lifter could potentially eliminate over 50% of manual lifts for every 10 and 15 litre pail sold in a DTC.
