Tractel lifting solutions

18th Jun 2014
BES Scotland

Thirteen members and guests of BES Scotland attended the region’s June technical lecture at the Westerwood Hotel in Cumbernauld for a presentation by Tractel’s very own Martyn Reed and Peter Swift on the company's Tirak hoist and BlocStop systems, commonly used for pulling and lifting operations, suspended access equipment and wind turbine service lifts.

The presentation combined Tractel’s history and products, as well as a discussion surrounding the operation of a Tirak hoist with its covers removed to understand the operation of a sealed unit. This was invaluable and confirmed various aspects that may have been previously unknown to interested parties.

This was both Martyn’s and Peters first time presenting such information and they may be interested in assisting other regions. Their office and workshop is based in Sheffield.
