Nycon introduces Magic Arm device
18 April 2008
Nycon International has introduced a new cargo loading device, the Magic Arm. The rigging device, a crane attachment designed with a lifting hook and C-shape double pulley, allows material operators to safely deliver construction loads directly to workers on elevated floors without the need for scaffolding or platforms.
The Magic Arm positions a loaded pallet directly onto any floor. It enables the crane operator to maneuver the top arm onto the upper floor until it lies flush. The load is then lowered onto the floor below. With its sophisticated pulley structure attached to the crane cable, the Magic Arm ensures load weight is carried by the crane's cable and not by the arm itself. Easily navigated around the perimeter of a structure, the Magic Arm lifts loads to any non-enclosed point on any floor.
The Magic Arm is a capable delivery solution for the hazardous business of moving construction loads: According to the Department of Labor's website, “an estimated 2.3 million construction workers, or 65% of the construction industry, work on scaffolds frequently. Protecting these workers from scaffold-related accidents would prevent 4,500 injuries and 50 deaths every year, at a savings for American employers of $90 million in workdays not lost.
