Van-Tech Custom: Breaking boundaries in reach and lift capacity.
One of Van-Tech’s clients has been making material handlers for over 20 years. An end user requested a proposal for a loader similar to many they’ve made in the past. The catch was, this loader needed a longer reach and a higher lift capacity than anything they had built before. Also, the loader was responsible for feeding a scrap shredding plant that would cost over $1000/hr if it went idle, so this loader had to have rock-solid reliability.
Van-Tech helped the client achieve enough reach and power with a custom-designed electrical hydraulic system based on Parker products. This design included a special hydraulic pilot control system, which offers extremely precise control and allows for extensive fine-tuning to give operators accuracy and finesse.
By sourcing all the hydraulic components from Parker, Van-Tech provided a single point of contact for service, and was able to extend the warranty to three years, without adding any cost. Van-Tech had engineers on-site for the installation, startup, and fine-tuning of the control system to ensure flawless operation.
The end user was so pleased with the fully-custom loader that they have installed a second and ordered a third. Partnering with Van-Tech allowed the client to provide excellent performance, superior reliability, and smooth and efficient operation. The end user experiences maximum uptime, and the best possible return on their investment.
