Recently two hydraulic passenger lifts according to EN81-2 are taken in use, with a minimum depth of the well of only 14 cm and yet a speed of 0.8 m / s. It is very rare in the Netherlands that this minimum of depth of well is allowed, but under the conditions in an existing building an exemption is made.
The current three locations of Lipro in Weert move to one new location at the address Mangaanstraat 1, 6031 RT Nederweert. In early August, the entire office will move. Production will move in some phases during the coming months. At the new location, with a production area of almost 2000 m², we can better meet the increasing demand for copings, elevators, (spare)parts and shafts. In the new showroom and instruction room, our customers can see the capabilities of our products, including hydraulic drives and elevator controls. Only the adress has changed, you can reach us at the same phone, fax, email and website www.lipro.nl.
Lipro Engineering has produced a very compact freight elevator for transporting containers, especially for use in supermarkets. This elevator makes it possible to move the containers to a basement or floorlevel where they can be stacked with a minimum of space usage on the shop floor.
Lipro Engineering has provided the lift of the Batmill in Plopsaland (Belgium) with a new hydraulic drive with a modern frequency controlled lift control. Thanks to this new controlsystem, the lift works more accurately and reliably. In addition, considerable energy is saved, which is immediately reflected in a stable low hydraulic oil temperature.
In constant consultation with the owner of a monumental building, Lipro achieved an elevator according to Machinery Directive in a very tight space. Both the interior and the shaft doors are completely styled to fit the appearance and atmosphere of this monumental building. The shaft doors are even customized original wooden doors, of course equipped with modern safety, which has created a safe and an approved elevator.
This week, we delivered the first vertivator with a hydraulic unit with frequency control. The start and stop are therefore very comfortable. Thanks to the frequency control, the noise level is considerably less and the vertivator can easily be connected to a 230V wall socket. Convenience and high security levels are achieved thanks to the fully automatic access ports.
For a special application, Lipro designed a goods- and passenger elevator with the entire steel shaft with guiders, controls and engine hanging on the roof of the building. This hydraulically driven lift has a liftingheight of almost 18 meters. The shaft was fully pre-assembled, which allowed the mounting on the spot to proceed very quickly.
This week, the testing of a freight elevator that transports containers fully automated by conveyor belts is finished. The controls are being adapted, custom made, so that via Modbus / TCP the process-automation communicates with the elevator-control. The elevator receives commands to go to a stop or level through the Modbus protocol. In addition, the control receives continuous feedback about the position and status of the elevator, so the elevator is being displayed and checked by the controlling software. This version has a capacity of 2800 kg and a lift height of more than 7 meters and will be used for the transport of bulk containers.
