Australia’s lifting IKON
IKON Lifting Equipment is a specialist product supplier to all facets of industrial transportation in Australia.
The company’s range covers road, rail, sea and air as well as other diverse applications for relocatable buildings and over dimension loads; drawing its products from STERTIL BV in the Netherlands, the world’s largest manufacturer of heavy vehicle lifts.
Whatever the type of vehicle, IKON has the lifts and hoists to get it up in the air so work can be done as safely and as quickly as possible.
IKON’s 12 years’ experience in wireless communications and battery powered equipment has overcome the reliance on mains power and attendant cabling hazards on workshop floors.
Battery powered lifting units – with up to 17.5t swl per lifting unit over sets containing as many as 32 units synchronised to within 15mm lift height – meet the tricky challenges of transporting equipment, relocatable buildings, ore wagon maintenance, vehicle maintenance and some locomotive maintenance.
Mains-powered vehicle lifts up to 70 tonne swl in various product designs complete the wide array of equipment options available from STERTIL BV to meet the needs of the Australian mining industry.
IKON’s WAGONLIFT, made in the Netherlands by STERIL KONI, is a remarkable new offering that can be used to separate wagons from bogies, wagons and spiders from wheel-sets or lift an entire wagon and reduce wheel-set changeover times from 2.5 hours to under half an hour.
With level hard standing alongside a wagon in a workshop, over a pit or in a marshalling yard, the WAGONLIFT is a quick and simple means of providing a quick turnaround whether one axle or two of a bogie need replacement or the entire bogie needs replacement.
IKON also provides custom designed adapters that can cater for most needs; and IKON’s OEM parts back-up and local service agents in all sale locations, together with its long warranty commitments, have earned it Preferred Supplier Status from users in all States and industry groups.
Listed among IKON’s major mining associated accounts are Fortescue Metals Group, Rio Tinto, Aurizon Operations, Pacific National and Genesee & Wyoming.
The company also provides its products to industrial and commercial vehicle companies, smaller equipment hire businesses and diesel vehicle repair workshops.
