The design is also suitable for companies that require additional lifting equipment in existing assembly and production bays. The patent pending design, which features diaphragm joints, is said to cut oscillation of the crane girder by up to 30%, causing lower loads to be transmitted to the crane, its components and the building structure. This, says Terex, doubles the service life of the crane to more than 500,000 load changes and enables heavy and sensitive loads to be positioned more precisely and quickly. The new single girder Demag Vtype crane may be used for various crane types, including overhead travelling cranes, suspension cranes, portal cranes and wall mounted travelling cranes.

Tel: 01903 202151 uvex has developed a grey-tint welding filter lens said to provide 100% ultraviolet and infrared protection, reduce glare and give perfect natural colour recognition in accordance with EN172, unlike traditional green-tint welding lenses, which can alter colours. Correct colour vision is vital in welding tasks where safety can depend on the correct recognition of colours in safety signs and signals. The new range of welding filter lenses comes in three different shades of grey and is said to be the Terex Material Handling’s new generation Demag V-type crane uses less material than before, helping to reduce the depletion of raw materials.According to Terex, V-type girders weigh, on average, 17% less than comparable box-section profile girders. The company says this reduced crane deadweight produces less wheel pressure and provides The new Explosives Regulations 2014 (ER 2014) and the Acetylene Safety (England and Wales and Scotland) Regulations 2014 (ASR 2014) come into force in November 2014. ESAB is reminding the market that these new regulations embrace significant changes to acetylene safety within the UK. Until now, the use of a flashback arrestor with oxyfuel gas systems was covered by best practice - but was not a legal requirement. With the new regulations a flashback arrestor with a non-return device is becoming a mandatory requirement when using acetylene gas in individual portable, mobile cylinder supply or manifold systems. ESAB offers a range of flashback arrestors that carry full HSE sparks. The range acetylene approval and are wholly suitable for use with UK oxy-fuel gas systems. The ESAB FRT series of in-line flashback arrestors have the specifications required by the regulation change. The resettable ESAB FR1000 & FR2000 series offer more safety features than the FRT as well as angled connections to reduce the potential damage from hose strain.
