Complex & Heavy Machinery Lifting

Complex, technical and heavy machinery lifting requires meticulous planning to ensure all aspects of the move are taken into consideration, including our strict health and safety regulations.

AIS Vanguard have the experience and equipment necessary to complete challenging lifts using a range of techniques whether its hoisting, jacking or skating we will provide the right solution for your project.

When it comes to moving heavy machinery or relocating part of a plant, traditional lifting solutions can often fall short due to confined working spaces or restricted floor loadings.

When access is difficult, a unique lifting method is required to adapt to the problem. These problems often call upon our wide range of ‘Megalift’ Jacking Systems, which provide an innovative solution for a cost-effective lifting method to move heavy machinery or plant equipment.

The specialist hydraulic gantry systems allow safe load raising, lowering, turning, tilting and traversing without the additional costs of dismantling roofs or steelwork. With almost an infinite range of configurations, our ‘Megalift’ Systems can be used to solve even the most unusual heavy lifting problems.

Whether you are installing, removing, constructing, dismantling, extracting, refitting, supporting or moving machinery or equipment, we can set up under, over or around or adjacent to the load.

All ‘Megalift’ Jacking systems have hydraulic rams, with the JS450 and JS130 having safety cam lock offs. The JS40, JS100, JS400 A&B and JS1000 all have non return valves to ensure complete stability and safety whilst lifting a load.

In addition, the ‘Megalift’ JS1000, JS400 A&B and JS 100 systems can be run on either diesel or gas, with the JS450 & JS130 able to run on gas only.

Megalift can lift up to 1,000 tonnes, so there really is no job too large for our hydraulic gantry ‘Megalift’ systems.

Lifting projects can be carried out as part of a full mechanical & electrical installation or as a pure lifting operation.
