Premium Industrial Group has the expertise, resources and technology to provide an entire plant with innovative lifting solutions! Our collaboration with Annexair, a thriving and successful company in the HVAC industry, certainly reflects our ability to do just that.
In 2018, Annexair moved to its new state of the art facility in St-Germain de Graham. We were then selected to cover all their lifting and hoisting needs. But it wasn’t just about designing and installing high quality overhead cranes. New crane track structures were also needed, along with technological solutions adapted to automation and 4.0 industry. A challenge of ingenuity and innovation awaited us, and that’s exactly what Premium provided.
Thanks to our partnership with Canstahl, the versatile Stahl products and our collaboration with specialized suppliers, the entire plant was equipped with Premium solutions. We were therefore able to meet Annexair’s technical requirements and successfully meet all the challenges involved. All facets of the project had to be covered, whether it was installing new cranes, new structures, relocating existing equipment or upgrading it. All of which was done while meeting the client’s schedule and strict OHS standards.
For example, we adapted a 4-hoist system with hooks closely positioned to each other, allowing even the smallest units to be lifted in tandem. This configuration required a special off-centre crane to achieve the exact distances required. We also implemented an overhead crane with a semi-automated system connecting to the customer’s equipment network. This technology is part of a smart factory project (4.0 Industry). The crane is equipped with a special hoist featuring a double drop chain fitted with two hooks, separated by a distance of 6 meters. These hooks are used to transport a spreader bar equipped with suction cups and motorized extensions. Such a design makes it possible to lift long items in perfect synchronization while remaining stable at all times. Shock absorbers have also been installed on the hooks to prevent vibrations that could damage parts.
We are privileged to team up with a company that shares our values: providing high quality products with innovative technologies, while staying committed to environmental protection. We thank Annexair for the opportunity to help them shape their promising future. It is a real treat to be involved in this company’s progress, as well as providing any solution they might need to efficiently serve their clients.
