The New P20 Series Is Finally Here!

Tri-Motion's Latest 500LB Air Hoist Innovation

We proudly announce the NEW P20 air balancing hoist is in stock and ready for sale. Units are selling quickly and customers are excited about this newest innovation. This adds to our already diverse product line giving customers yet another option for their applications. This new 500 pound capacity Pro-Air hoist was designed to fill in the gap between the 300 and 600 pound units already offered. The new models PH20 and PV20 are both rated as follows:

500 LBS CAPACITY @ 80 PSI

550 LBS CAPACITY @ 90 PSI

600 LBS CAPACITY @ 100 PSI

With a cable with a tensile strength of 4200 pounds, there is a safety factor of at least 7-to-1. The M12 DIN580 metric eyebolts are rated for 750 pounds safe working load, (with the safety factor already built in). Other features include 1/2-14 NPT ports for unrestricted air flow in both the up and down directions. Hard anodized aluminum tube and black anodized components provide strength, corrosion resistance, as well as an elegant appearance. Works with our existing hoist control line for both load-balancing and pick-and-place applications.

Also don't forget about the newly launched SM Single Mount series. The space-saving Single Mount is a horizontal Bal-Trol that mounts like a vertical. It only needs one trolley, not two like other horizontal hoists. It also has the advantage that it can be mounted perpendicular to the rail.

  • Because the movieHalloween (1978) was on such a tight budget, they had to use the cheapest mask they could find for the character Michael Meyers, which turned out to be a William ShatnerStar Trek mask. Shatner initially didn’t know the mask was in his likeness, but when he found out years later, he said he was honored.

  • The owl is a popular Halloween image. In Medieval Europe, owls were thought to be witches, and to hear an owl's call meant someone was about to die.

  • Trick-or-treating evolved from the ancient Celtic tradition of putting out treats and food to placate spirits who roamed the streets at Samhain, a sacred festival that marked the end of the Celtic calendar year.
  • Halloween is thought to have originated around 4000 B.C., which means Halloween has been around for over 6,000 years.e

NEW SM Single Mount Pro-Air Balancing Hoist

Announcing the NEW SM Single Mount Pro-Air Balancing Hoist

TAMPA, Fla., (March 2, 2015) - The NEW SM Single Mount Pro-Air Balancing Hoist (U.S. and Foreign Patents Pending) from Tri-Motion Industries provides yet another mounting option in the already diverse collection of Bal-Trol® Air Balancers. This addition to the Bal-Trol® line-up allows for a single mounting point and consumes much less overhead space while retaining the compact footprint of the current Pro-Air Series.

Tri-Motion Industries has a track record of bringing new products to market that respond to its customers’ needs. For example, in 2009, it successfully launched the NEW Bal-Trol® Pro-Air Series. This unit is considerably more compact than the Modular Series, with simple operating procedures and low maintenance costs.

The NEW SM Single Mount Pro-Air Series features a single mounting point like the vertical Bal-Trol® but occupies much less overhead space, similar to the horizontal Bal-Trol®. This gives users another option when the use of a repetitive lifting device is required in a confined work space.

“Tri-Motion is proud to continue to expand its product offerings with the innovative design provided by the NEW Single Mount Pro-Air Series,” said Company President Joseph Green. “We are especially excited by the additional versatility and mounting options the new series will provide for our customers.”

About the Bal-Trol Product Bal-Trol® is a pneumatic device that can be used to balance or lift a load. For quieter, smoother and more maintenance-free operation, the Bal-Trol® should be considered in place of applications using chain hoists (air or electric) or other lifting methods—and especially in place of back-breaking manual lifting! Bal-Trols have a range of “float” (or balance) of 4 – 6 inches. The user can remove their hands from the control so that the part can be maneuvered into place and then released.

The Bal-Trol® is a simple, cost-effective solution for preventing workplace lifting injuries, especially from repetitive lifting. It can permit users to make the workplace more efficient by allowing a single worker to perform an operation that would otherwise require assistance in manually lifting a heavy load. Bal-Trol® air balancers are time-tested. They have been in use for over 35 years in a variety of applications, in diverse industries, all over the world. These include automotive, aeronautical, brewing, military hardware, window manufacturing, and food product manufacturing and processing.

MHI Logo

Tri-Motion Joins MHI Association

As America’s largest material handling, supply chain and logistics association, the Material Handling Institute has grown by enormous leaps and bounds since its founding in 1945. Initially created as a way to improve and promote the whole of the industry, MHI began with great ambitions, forming its now signature show, ProMat, only three years later in 1948.

The original mission of MHI is still in place today. By allowing its members and affiliates to form groups to represent specific market sectors, MHI quickly rose in prominence, posting an expansion in the 80s of over three times their then current roster of hundreds of different companies. It was also during this decade MHI restructured itself internally to professionally manage marketing, legal, education, technical and fiduciary aspect, officially crossing the threshold from start-up to professional player in the industry.

The current years have come to exhibit the incoming changes MHI is ready to take on. While traditional equipment is still the prime feature of this steadfast industry, steps are being taken to ensure the seamless integration of such modern marvels as bar coding, automated storage and retrieval, smart machines and automatically guided machines. Already their booths and members are starting to display this inevitable shift. Such foresight has also allowed them to continue their expansion seemingly uninterrupted. In 2012, they launched their newest expo, MODEX, and now have it trading off every other year with their ever popular ProMat.

Enter Tri-Motion Industries, the Florida-based leader in our unique brand of pneumatically powered and ergonomically designed lifters and balancers. More specifically, we are the manufacturers of the “Bal-Trol®” air balancing hoist. Derived from “balance and control”, this ingenious invention is the cost-effective and dependable way to keep workers safe from repetitive lifting injuries. To further extend our reach to the manufacturing world, we are proud to announce our recent membership in the MHI.

Aside from the prestige that comes with joining such a successful collection of leaders in the industry, we are now able to extend our brand’s reach even further. Just this past year alone we hosted our own booth at MODEX 2014. There are even similar expos now available to us outside of the US as we further work to expand our name. In addition to public exposure, we are positioned to join the specialized group specific to lifters and balancers. This extends our reach as one of the main voices behind our industry, allowing us an inside voice in regards to continually upping and maintaining brand standards, specifications and safety.

As far as online presence goes, we now also have a listing in their directory which can be searched by those in the public looking for experts in their field as well as other members. Exclusive conferences and meetings ensure we get personal exposure to other members to not only strengthen but create more ties between other leaders. MHI also provides us with only the best media contacts to help us get our news to the public by way of national newspapers, trade publications and business journals. Best of all, however, are the quarterly releases put together by the MHI experts. By tracking, organizing and presenting the data in both the Material Handling Equipment Manufacturing Forecast and the Annual Rate of Change Workbook, we can more accurately predict the fluctuations of the market and adjust our current and future strategy accordingly.

This union between Tri-Motion Industries and MHI is the next step in our progression toward a better tomorrow. From increased exposure to more opportunities in America and abroad, we are poised on the precipice of our next stage of growth. By taking advantage of the newest chances available to us, we will be able to better serve our customers through improvements in every facet of our company. Tri-Motion is proud to be one of the many successful members of the MHI and looks forward to many more incredible years.
