Industrial Plant and Machinery Lifting

There are several key things to consider initially when planning a lift in order to ensure it is the most appropriate method, it is safe and it is cost-effective.

At Projector Lifting Service, we have over 30 years experience in contract lifting and hydraulic gantry lifting systems.  The knowledge and experience we have means we're able to quickly determine how best to achieve your objectives, to help you plan your project and deliver the outcomes you need. 

Based centrally in the UK, near Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, we work all over the world, although the majority of our regular contracts are in the UK.  When you partner with us, you can depend on a comprehensive  service that leaves nothing to chance. 

From your initial consultation, site survey and lift plans, your project will be planned and documented in detail, tailored and completed with as little disruption as possible. The fully trained team has a combined experience of over 157 years, lifting, removing machinery, installing plant - everything from injection moulding machines and transformers to road bridges and turbine engines.

So, accurate lift plans, method statements, risk assessments and compliance are all second nature to us. We are ideally placed, close to major arterial routes with access to all parts of the UK, seaports and airports. As we are fully insured up to £20 million, you can have complete peace of mind and focus on your project and business objectives. If you wish, you can just leave the planning, paperwork, logistics and heavy lifting to us.

Gantry Crane Rental

At Projector Lifting Service, the hydraulic gantry lifting systems we use are capable of lifting between 20 and 453 tonnes and extending up to 10 meters in the air. They are extremely versatile lifting systems that can be set up very quickly. Unlike traditional cranes, they don't necessarily require direct overhead access to the load. When utilised efficiently, a gantry lifting system can solve and handle awkward lifting projects such as the relocation of machinery in confined spaces and indoors.

What are Hydraulic gantry lift systems?

Hydraulic gantry lift systems are often more efficient for plant and machinery lifting than a traditional crane. Not only can they be set up in enclosed areas, but they also have a large loading capacity. This can be advantageous for assembling and dismantling industrial plant and machinery.

Hydraulic gantry lift systems also allow for multi-point lifting, which can keeps the load completely level if required. Conversely, hydraulic lift systems also allow machinery or other loads to be lifted, tilted and turned. Their flexibility is a key advantage.

From internal domestic projects to transcontinental relocation of plant and machinery, you can rely on Projector Lifting Service to treat each project with the same care and attention, regardless of the size. 

The experienced team of specialist engineers at Projector will ensure that your project runs as smoothly as possible. As with any project, issues can arise for a variety of reasons and it's the ability to innovate and solve issues when the unexpected arises that has helped us build an excellent reputation in the industry.

CPA or Contract Lift Available

If you choose contract lifting, you will receive a one-call service. We are responsible for the planning, control and supervision of the lift.  The most optimal equipment will be selected based on your load, and we will specify any slinging and signalling arrangements. 

CPA hire is different as we  provide just the chosen equipment and a competent operator. Naturally contract lifting will be a higher investment as we are responsible for the entire lift, including planning and compliance. You will have full advantage of our extensive experience to carry out your project correctly, safely, on time and within budget.
