Aus­tralia’s lift­ing IKON

The Australian Mining Review - - CRANES & LIFTING -

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.
