HY-DYNAMIX™ LAUNCHES PORTABLE SOLUTION FOR CONTAINER WEIGHING AS NEW SOLAS RULES COME INTO FORCE
Four corner hydraulic jack system Hy-Weigh™ raises containers in situ and takes ten minutes to deploy and complete weighin
County Durham, UK, Thursday 12th May 2016 – Hy-Dynamix™ has launched a new mobile container weighing solution called Hy-Weigh™, which gives digital read outs within ten minutes at point of packing.
The system can weigh containers up to 35 tonnes and uses four corner hydraulic elevation jacks, raising the container in situ and displaying the weight in increments of 50kg via a digital read-out.
Designed by engineers at Hy-Dynamix™ parent company Dyer Engineering, which has a 40-year pedigree in the sector, Hy-Weigh is self-contained on its own specially designed pallet, and its control panel allows for individual corner raising and lowering.
“We have designed a product which is simple, easy to use, and reliable, with no complex software or electronics, ” said Graeme Parkins, Managing Director, Hy-Dynamix™.
“Hy-Weigh™ removes the need for dedicated container craneage weighing systems or weighbridges, it is easily deployed and moved around a facility, and we are very proud to say it is manufactured in the UK.”
Hy-Dynamix™ is a new company launched this year by Parkins, who is also Managing Director of parent company Dyer Engineering, which was established in 1977 in County Durham in the North-East of the UK.
In 2013, three years after joining Dyer Engineering as General Manager, Graeme completed a management buyout of the company along with his business partner Richard Bradley. The two continue to maintain and nurture the company’s values of “Smarter, Stronger, Together”, which encourages and builds a culture around innovative ideas to help customers improve their businesses, all delivered within a true team-working ethos.”
The Hy-Weigh™ System was developed in house as part of a range of products to facilitate and handle the moving of containers.
Its sister product Hy-Lifter™ elevates the container and allows skating systems to be attached to the underside to allow easy movement of a container around a facility.
Graeme and the Hy-Dynamix™ team were at Multimodal in Birmingham this week to celebrate the launch of their new product.
Hy-Dynamix™ is the exciting new company focused on developing Container Logistics Technology.
Using four corner hydraulic lifting jacks it offers solutions for lifting, moving and weighing containers within your own facilities.
Simple to use systems allow for the handling of containers in all sizes up to 40ft in length and 35 tonnes in weight and removes the need for expensive craneage or weighbridges.
Using in-house expertise, skills and facilities the Hy-Dynamix™ brand was launched to bring to the market a full range of “Hy-“ products to facilitate the handling and moving of Containers.
