When using a chain hoist according to BGV-D8, loads must only be moved for the assembly and disassembly of carrier constructions. Moreover, no people are allowed to stand under the load. After lifting the load, it must be secured and the chain must be relieved. This procedure is also called "hanging dead". Normally, this kind of hoist is only equipped with one brake and is therefore not approved for load-holding or for stage utilisation. The motor is not used again until disassembly. This still is the most common application of electric chain hoists in event technology.
ROBA®-secustop: the perfect safety brake for electric chain hoists in event and stage technology.
In order to comply with the BGV-D8 Plus or even BGV-C1 standards, chain hoists must be equipped, among other things, with two independent DC brakes. The ROBA®-secustop brake by mayr® power transmission is a double brake, which fits these demands perfectly as it was developed and tailored specially for this purpose. Currently, this Type series includes three sizes with a braking torque range from 2 x 4 Nm up to 2 x 16 Nm.
The compact and enclosed design guarantees easy handling and installation. The working air gap is set and does not require re-adjustment. This means that malfunctions due to operating and adjustment errors are already ruled out constructively. The ROBA®-secustop is equipped with an integrated damping unit for the reduction of switching noises. Before delivery, every brake is subject to a 100 % inspection in assembled state at the place of manufacture in order to guarantee the highest operational safety and reliability. The stage brake is mainly maintenance-free. Maintenance work is limited to inspection of the friction linings, which are extremely wear-resistant and have a very long service life.
Electric chain hoists according to BGV-D8 Plus are, in contrast to hoists according to BGV-D8, also approved for load-holding. This makes the time-consuming “hanging dead” procedure unnecessary. Standing under moved loads and stage utilisation are also not allowed for these hoists. However, people are allowed to stand under the lifted and stopped loads.
Electric chain hoists according to BGV-C1 comply with the highest safety requirements. These so-called point hoists are approved for moving loads even when people stand underneath. This is valid for both assembly and disassembly work as well as for stage utilisation during shows and events.
mayr® power transmission offers a wide range of brakes for stage-technological installations. The ROBA®-secustop, an extremely economic safety brake for electric chain hoists and hoisting devices, is the perfect addition to this product range.

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
