Dear business partners,

Our CHAMP series as loaders to load and unload aircraft have been developed under the current state of computational methods for support structures and thus ensure safe lifting and lowering heavy loads. The structure of the loaders is designed with adequate safety factors. Continuous quality checks by certified welders under the supervision of welding engineers ensure that the theoretical values are implemented in practice. When conveying the individual air freight, it is essential to make sure that the cargo loads do correspond with each loader type and its designated handling capacity, thus eliminating any misuse resp. overloading. Keeping this in mind and with good maintenance, a very long service life is possible. Decades of operations are proof of the reliability and safety of our loaders.

Unsere Champ Serie als Lader zum Be- und Entladen von Flugzeugen sind unter dem aktuellen Stand der Berechnungsmethoden für Tragwerke entwickelt worden und gewährleisten so ein sicheres Heben und Senken von großen Lasten. Dabei wurde die Struktur der Lader mit ausreichenden Sicherheiten ausgelegt. Durch ständige Qualitätskontrollen und geprüfte Schweißer unter Aufsicht von Schweißfachingenieuren wird sichergestellt, dass die theoretischen Werte praktisch umgesetzt werden. Beim Befördern der einzeln gewogenen Luftfracht ist natürlich darauf zu achten, dass die Lasten aus der Fracht dem jeweiligen Ladertyp in seiner ausgewiesenen Tragkraft entsprechen und dadurch eventuelle Überlasten ausgeschlossen werden. Bei Beachtung dieses Zusammenhanges und guter Wartung ist eine sehr hohe Lebensdauer möglich. Die Zuverlässigkeit und Sicherheit unserer Lader wird und wurde durch Jahrzehnte langen Einsatz unter Beweis gestellt.
