The Vita VLN is a suspended load system that dynamically adjusts to load size and other variables.
Vita Inclinata (Vita), developer and producer of helicopter and crane load stabilization and precision hardware, has delivered three Vita Load Navigator (VLN) systems (2xVLN20 and 1xVLN40) to Holt Crane & Equipment in Texas. Holt will use the VLN systems for renting and selling, as well as helping customers fit near-term and long-term construction requirements.
The VLN is a remotely-operated, suspended load system that allows crane operation crews the precision control to orient their lifts without being in the critical path of the load. The system dynamically adjusts to load sizes, crane movement, and wind conditions, allowing high-precision lifts in the most challenging environments.
“We are excited about introducing the Vita Load Navigator into the southern construction market and believe that the system will quickly prove itself in terms of safety and productivity,” said Kyle Nape, sales manager, Holt Crane & Equipment. “Not only is this an excellent product right now, but Vita Inclinata is also a great manufacturer who works closely with Holt and our customers to continually improve the system in the field.”
Holt views the VLN system as an important tool for any type of heavy load lifting as it eliminates the use of taglines, improves the productivity of lifting and placing loads while enhancing employee safety, according to the company.
Nape also cited additional VLN features: simple control over the load and stability in winds with minimal effort from the riggers/operators; two memory positions for ease of multi-pick operations; long battery life, and ease of charging and easy to transport from job to job.
“As a VLN distributor, Holt will promote our system to construction operations in Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and New Mexico – areas where they have strong relationships,” said Vita CEO Caleb Carr. “We are excited such a large construction company has embraced our system and proud that the VLN system will be promoting a higher degree of load-lifting safely throughout the south.”
