REID PORTA-GANTRY contributes to CERN’s activity

Customer: The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN)
Product/Solution: PG500S-2500 REID PORTA-GANTRY System
Application: Aiding the immersion of 14kA diodes into a liquid nitrogen Dewar and lifting of translation tables

When CERN, The European Organization for Nuclear Research located in Geneva, needed a versatile gantry for various applications such as the immersion of 14kA diodes into a liquid nitrogen Dewar for electrical tests, as well as lifting of translation tables for the calibration of magnetic measurements equipment, they approached REID Lifting about the PORTA-GANTRY systems.

They immediately saw the benefits in the lightweight, portable and easily adaptable nature of the PORTA-GANTRY system.

Even though it was not necessary to have a height-adaptable device, there were obvious flexibility and stabilization benefits when higher height lifting is not required. They also required a compact mobile unit to be able to easily move it around in “busy” areas.

REID Lifting responded rapidly with a PORTA-GANTRY system based around their “small” configurations with a Working Load Limit of 500kg (part of a range to WLL 5,000kg) with a delivery of just 2 weeks from the receipt of order. CERN were very pleased with REID’s response.
