With nearly 270 years of experience in the design and manufacture of high performance handling and lifting equipment, the J D Neuhaus company has updated its logo and slogan to a design which more closely represents their latest products, including new developments, designed for applications in some of the toughest markets and environments. For many years the logo slogan of ‘powered by air’ was fully appropriate for the full range of hoists, cranes and winches. More recently, however, the introduction of hydraulically powered products has been predominant, suitable for the operating conditions in heavy engineering markets such as mining which has its own unique requirements. To do justice to these developments, the logo slogan has been updated to ‘engineered for extremes’.The company feels this is more representative of the current product performance and developments. The new logo also incorporates a modern typeface which is more powerful and vibrant, reflecting the changes in the markets served.JDN products incorporate 100% duty ratings, insensitively to humidity and dust while operating at temperatures from -20°C to +70°C. They are ideally suited for working in hazardous atmospheres and are Ex rated for use in potentially explosive areas. Highly specialised operating conditions have also been accommodated, with hoists currently available for underwater applications (down to 70 m in depth), as well as for operation at arctic temperatures down to -45°C.
