Vehicle lifts: To meet escalating customer demand for its broad range of heavy duty vehicle lifts, Stertil-Koni announced it has boosted its manufacturing capacity and simultaneously implemented key enhancements in its overall production processes to further speed delivery times.

This development is the most recent in a series of capital and workforce investment initiatives by Stertil-Koni to increase both productivity and efficiency.

The company’s portfolio of highly regarded mobile column lifts is the principle beneficiary of these most recent improvements. Noted Peter Bowers, Technical Sales Support Manager at Stertil-Koni, “Marketplace response to our recently introduced ST 1085 mobile column lifts has been extremely positive. These mobile column lifts deliver the latest in high-performance, low-maintenance and safety-engineered mobile lifting systems.”

The ST 1085 series features a lifting capacity of 18,500 lbs. per column and is equipped with extra-long adjustable pick-up forks of 14 inches ­- well suited to safely raise all types of vehicles, including those with super single tires. In addition, the width between the lifting forks is adjustable, so that vehicles with variable wheel diameters can be lifted safely and easily.

Continued Bowers, “The ST 1085 also features a Multi Master System, equipped with a control box on each individual mobile lifting column. In that way, lifting columns can be operated individually, in pairs or a complete set with the touch of a single button. Customers also appreciate that all columns are interchangeable, so they can be used at multiple locations.”

In July 2013, Stertil-Koni announced that its manufacturing facility in Streator, Illinois, purchased and installed a new Okuma MILLAC Vertical Machining Center. The result has been to substantially speed the fabrication process while simultaneously increasing precision in a broad range of the company¹s heavy duty lifts, including mobile column lifts, platform lifts, its US patented, ultra-shallow, full-rise in-ground scissor lifting system, ECOLIFT, and its full-rise telescopic piston lift, DIAMOND LIFT.

In April 2013, Stertil-Koni also unveiled a cutting machine that utilizes a combination of plasma and oxy-fuel torches coupled with a high-end PC-based touch screen controller for quick, high-precision manufacturing.
