Lifting Equipment for 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 strict health and safety regulations. It’s also important to utilise the right lifting equipment for the job and we are the industrial moving company with the knowledge and resources you need to get the job done safely and efficiently.

At AIS Vanguard, we are the industrial machinery movers that can complete challenging lifts using a range of lifting equipment and techniques. Whether it’s hoisting, jacking or skating, our team of industrial machinery movers will provide the right lifting equipment and expertise 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, which may limit the types of lifting equipment that can be used for the project.

When access is difficult, a unique lifting method is required to adapt to the problem. As an industrial moving company, we can call upon our wide range of lifting equipment, including our ‘Megalift’ Jacking Systems, which provide an innovative, cost-effective solution for lifting heavy machinery or plant.

Our specialist hydraulic gantry system lifting equipment allows 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’ lifting equipment 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, our experienced industrial machinery movers can set up our lifting equipment under, over, around or adjacent to the load.

All ‘Megalift’ Jacking systems have hydraulic rams, and our JS450 and JS130 lifting equipment has 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 lifting equipment 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’ lifting equipment.

We are the industrial moving company that can carry out lifting projects as part of a full mechanical & electrical installation, or as a pure lifting operation.
