Vita Industrial and WOLFFKRAN Ltd Bring Intelligent Lift Control Innovation to Vertikal Days
ita Industrial is now available in Europe and will be on display in the WOLFFKRAN Ltd booth at Vertikal Days, Europe’s largest lifting equipment event, taking place from 10-11 May, 2023 at the East of England Showground, Peterborough.
- The emphasis will be on the load control technology and how it can increase worker safety, project efficiency and profitability for lifting operations.
- The company will highlight its pilot partnership with US-based DPR Construction and how the two companies are turning a century-old analog solution (taglines) into a real-time, intelligent data system.
Throughout Vertikal Days, Vita Industrial will be holding live demonstrations in partnershipwith WOLFFKRAN Ltd and showing the Vita Load Navigator (VLN). The VLN uses a powerful system of sensors and air thrusters to automatically control loads andprevent spinning. The company will show how the VLN can increase safety, efficiency, precision, and profitability.
“Vita Industrial is thrilled to give companies a hands-on experience of the Vita Load Navigator at Europe’s largest lifting equipment show,” said Caleb Carr, chairman and CEO of Vita Inclinata. “Construction companies and equipment suppliers worldwide are quickly learning how load control can dramatically improve their lifting operations. The VLN can speed up construction schedules, improve jobsite safety, and reduce claims. We can’t wait to show off the technology live in Peterborough with our friends from WOLFFKRAN.”
The Vita Load Navigator uses intelligent aviation sensors to detect load position, windspeed, and more than 1,000 other data points per second. High-powered air thrusters dynamically adjust loads within milliseconds with up to 1° accuracy.The unit can be controlled via remote for precision lifting.
Team members from Vita Industrial will be hosting live product experiences and allowing participants to test the VLN themselves at the WOLFFKRAN booth.
Partnership with DPR Construction
At Vertikal Days, Vita Industrial will also highlight its work with DPR Construction, a leading U.S.-based general contractor with projects worldwide. In recent months, DPR and Vita have partnered in a pilot program of Vita’s innovative hardware and software solutions at a California project site.
“Many of the tools of the construction industry trade haven’t evolved in decades,” said Henning Roedel, DPR’s robotics lead. “DPR looks for opportunities to adapt and use those tools in different ways to foster innovation. We like to work with companies that can think bigger —like Vita Industrial has done here — and bring innovation that improves safety and efficiency in construction sites everywhere.”
DPR has more than 5,000 employees in the skilled trades and a dedicated innovation team that looks for solutions that can contribute to bringing their employees home safely every day — a core value of Vita Industrial.
