Verlinde Stagemaker SR is an industrial chain type electric hoist specially adapted to “show-business” applications for loads of 250 to 1000 kg.
Verlinde Stagemaker SR
Main features and specification for Verlinde Stagemaker SR:
Verlinde Stagemaker SR2 & SR5
SR2 is for loads of up to 250kg, and SR5 for loads of up to 500kg, each available with hoist speeds of 4m/min, 8m/mim or 16m/min.
The two models are marketed in versions A and B. The version A refers to motors with direct voltage control for rental and general rigging purposes. The version B refers to motors with low voltage control for fixed installations. Its new ergonomic design, black in colour, enables it to fit in well with its environment especially with grid lighting systems. Its handgrips prevent any risk of injury during assembly while offering optimum compactness when retracted. Protective rubber pads also offer shock protection during handling.
Keeping to the VERLINDE STAGEMAKER tradition, STAGEMAKER SR is fitted with the best possible safety features. As standard delivery the new STAGEMAKER SR model is equipped with double lifting brake, in order to render this unit directly compatible with D8 and D8+ (with new setting of the torque limiter to divide by 2 nominal capacity), this lifting unit will also became the first and alone product on the market with such safety level. The standard version is fitted with a new hoist load wheel concept with intermediate teeth for the drive chain, a Start/Stop palm button on the control box, a torque limiter, a hoist disc brake, low control voltage (48V), a variable speed travel motor and an electric safety limit switch for high and low positions. With the new torque limiter, the positioning of the clutch system in the gear box ensures the load is securely held by the brake whatever the operating conditions of the equipment. Fitted with an electric stop function as standard equipment on the version B, the safety of maximum upper and lower positioning of the hook is ensured by these electric limit switches and the switches themselves activated in turn by two rope slack stops.
Lubricated for life to reduce maintenance, the gear reducer was designed for very long durations of operation of up to 3200 hours. Maintenance operations are now simpler, faster and more economical: easy access to brake adjustments, torque limiter settings, fuses, etc. High precision machining on the gear trains, moreover, ensures a very low noise pollution level of only 70dBA. The clutch system is easy of access for occasional maintenance operations and its location in the gear box ensures the load is securely held by the brake whatever the operating conditions of the equipment.
The recently patented « Perfect Push ®», 5-pocket hoist load wheel concept has 5 intermediate teeth for absolute grip of the hoisting chain providing a better chain guide and reducing the polygon effect. The "CHAINFlux MKII" high strength aluminium guide system also ensures fluid movement of chain on horizontal output from the hoist load wheel facilitating passage of the chain on ejection. The system prevents the "polygon effect" due to twisting of the chain and optimizes chain input to the chain bucket. The safety of maximum upper and lower positions of the hook is moreover ensured by electric limit switches located under the chain guide system. The switches are activated in turn by the upper cone of the hoist hook and the slack rope stop.
Numerous options are available: gear limit switch (2 or 4 steps), motor mounted with a lug to replace the top hook, automatic closing of lifting hook, controllers range, flight cases range.
Verlinde Stagemaker SR10
Verlinde has added a heavy loads version to its range of new generation STAGEMAKER SR hoists. With its one-metric ton lifting capacity, Stagemaker SR10 is ideal for the handling of grids and scenographic equipment of large capacity. STAGEMAKER SR hoists are the only ones on the market to be equipped as standard with double brake, special CHAINFlux® chain guide, patented Perfect Push® hoist load wheel, retractable carrying grips and protective rubber coating where necessary. The Stagemaker SR range thus offers the most appropriate model for a specific application. SR2 for loads to 250 kg, SR5 to 500 kg and now the SR10 for loads to 1000 kg.
STAGEMAKER SR10 is available with lifting speeds of 4m/min or 8m/min. Versions A or B are available for all models. Version A is fitted with a motor with DC voltage control whereas the version B motor has low voltage control. Its new black painted ergonomic design suits any environment especially where industrial light grids are installed. Exactly like the SR2 model (capacity 250 kg) and SR5 model (capacity 250 kg), it is fitted with retractable handles for transportation to prevent the risk of injury during assembly and ensuring excellent compactness when retracted. Shock-absorbing rubber pads also protect it from impact during manipulations.
STAGEMAKER SR10 is fitted with the best available safety devices to meet current standards and regulations. The new model of STAGEMAKER SR10 is delivered as standard with a double lifting brake system to make it directly D8+ compatible (“D8+ Ready”, tare calculated by dividing the rated capacity by 2) making this lifting unit the only hoist on the market with this level of safety as standard. Furthermore, it incorporates a new, unique hoist load wheel concept with intermediary wheels for the chain drive (Perfect Push®) together with a chain guide system (CHAINFlux® MKII). With the new torque limiter, the positioning of the clutch in the gearbox ensures the load is securely held by the brake whatever the operating conditions. The electrical limit switch as standard equipment on the version B means that maximum high and low positions of the lifting hook cannot be exceeded by the operator.
Three levels of finish are offered for flight cases with the STAGEMAKER SR range: Premium, Eco, Basic. The storage cradles for mobile hoists made of curved steel profiles are movable to facilitate width adjustments according to options fitted on the motor. The “Basic” version is a maintenance tray with solid birch panels, 2 handles fixed to the side supports, stackable trays with 2 runners on the topside and a separate space for the chain. The “Eco” version is fitted with a hinged lid, 9 mm film-coated solid birch panels, 2 sunk butterfly clasps, 2 lid stops, 4 sunk sprung handles, 4 x D100 castor wheels 2 of which can be locked onto runners. It is fitted out with movable steel cradles for single or double brake (adjustable) versions, and 2 chain trays in the middle. The “Premium” version incorporates very tough 9 mm thick panels with a hexadecimal black finish, 2 sunk butterfly clasps, 2 lid stops, 4 x D100 castor wheels 2 of which can be locked onto runners, 8 sunk sprung handles, protective side runners, inspection portholes, production plate and 4 stacking trays.
Boasting an entirely new ergonomic design, STAGEMAKER SR is the only model available on the market fitted with double lifting brake, retractable handgrips and protective rubber pads.
STAGEMAKER SR fits in well with all types of installation offering best-in-class safety and productivity.
