3 questions to Liftop

Interview with Jean-Marc ALLEGRE, director of Liftop

Which is the major subject you are currently focusing on?

Liftop works constantly on the research and development of new handling solutions that allow manufacturers to simplify the work of their operators in their daily activities. Among them, "intelligent" solutions have been developed this year, such as the piLIFT® SMART lifting handle, which allows the collection and analysis of performance data to optimise production flows. For example, this technology allows you to receive an alert when maintenance is required or to configure lift height preferences.  This is a big advantage for our customers who will be able to avoid business interruptions and optimise their lifting techniques. As a result, the company is incorporating the growth of the Industry 4.0 into its offering.

What is your strategy to answer the increasing demand from both the industries and the consumers, in terms of sustainable development / eco-design ?

The company attaches particular importance to the quality of its products in terms of origin (European suppliers) as well as in terms of quality and performance. As a large proportion of our range is electrically operated, we are increasingly giving preference to Lithium batteries, which have a longer lifespan than conventional (AGM) batteries. Energy consumption is also an important concern and a significant argument for our customers. The new piLIFT® SMART handle, for example, meets this requirement with 76% lower energy consumption compared to conventional lifting tubes. This is because its pump only works during the lifting process, which avoids unnecessary energy consumption.

Why did you choose to take part in ALL4PACK 2020 ? / Which kind of decision makers do you meet there ?

ALL4PACK is an opportunity for us to meet professionals from all sectors, and to collect their problems related to handling operations and repetitive tasks. Our team of technical sales representatives in attendance at the show can thus offer them tailor-made handling solutions suited to their business constraints.
