Wireless Lifting Hook

Lifting hook for bell furnaces


The NEO20 lifting hook for bell furnaces, with its 20,000 kg/44,092 lb lifting capacity, has been designed as a solution for lifting and transporting bell furnaces, as well as for oversized lifting points (up to 100mm Ø) such as rods between plates, holes on a plate, chain slings, lifting bails and other oversized lifting points.

  • The perfect solution for lifting & handling bell furnaces
  • Ideal for oversized lifting points (up to 100mm Ø)
  • Remote engage and release of load.
  • Fail-safe Design: Impossible to drop a suspended load.
  • “All or Nothing” principle: Additional safety feature where NEO lifts load ONLY when closure system is confirmed locked.


Swivel with Bearings

The bearings allow the Lifting Hook for Bell Furnaces to rotate freely. If required, the swivel can be set in a fixed position.

LED Status Indicator

In regular lifting operations with bell furnaces, the operator has a limited line of sight and poor visibility as to the lifting hooks' position and engagement of the bell furnace. The High-Brightness LED status indicator is an additional safety measure which shows the lifting hook's status at all times with a bright 4 colour colour-code scheme visible from the operator's position. This feature is optional.

  • Green: Lifting Hook is Open / Release Load
  • Red: Intermediate: Do Not Lift!
  • Blue: Lifting Hook is Closed / Lift & Manoeuvre Load
  • White: Low Battery

High-Capacity Battery

With the high-capacity battery, a simple 3 hour charge allows for more than 3.000 cycles or over 250 hours in standby mode. The 14 segment E-ink charge status display and rechargeable Li-Ion technology guarantee an optimal autonomy and consumption of the battery.

Load Cell

The NEO20 is equipped with a load cell to weigh the load that is being lifted. This load cell is precise, reliable, rugged, compact and fully integrated into the lifting hook, representing no increase in weight or dimensions of the unit. The load cell in combination with the eMAX remote control transforms the NEO20 into a precise weighing scale with advanced features. This feature is optional.

Autoclose Mode

A contact sensor detects when load is in position, and the NEO20 closes automatically. This feature is optional.

Laser Pointer

The NEO20 carries a Laser Pointer as an optional feature. It acts as a guide to perfectly place and set the lifting hook in the correct position when approaching the lifting point. To activate it, simply press the button beside the battery slot. This feature is optional. Demo Video

Fail-safe Designed

Impossible to release or drop the load while it is suspended on the lifting hook. Just like the evo range of automatic crane hooks and our automatic lifting clamps, the automatic lifting hook for bell furnaces is designed under a fail-safe principle that makes it impossible to drop a suspended load.

Remote Controlled

Open and close the lifting hook or receive real-time information of weight, battery level, and other values of the lifting and manoeuvering operation. The NEO20 bell furnaces lifting hook can be paired to any of the Elebia remote controls.

Metal Tip

A metal tip can be inserted to facilitate the NEO20's positioning into a narrow space. Fabricated from high-strength steel, it is reinforced to protect the the hook against impacts. This feature is optional.

Heat Vest

The Heat Vest is fabricated with a three-layered composite of Fiberglass S.S., high-performance Pyrogel® XTE aerogel insulation and Kaowool 1600 paper. After the external fibreglass fabric, the Kaowool 1600 paper is placed and acts as thermal barrier. The aerogel insulation is placed afterwords, closest to the NEO20 lifting hook, to deliver superior thermal protection against corrosion under insulation.

ARC50 Lifting Point

The ARC 50 by Codipro is a lifting point specially designed for handling heavy loads, and particularly suited for lifting moulds. It has been conceived to be used with the NEO20 lifting hook, although it can also be used in combination with other lifting hooks, shackles with a diameter of less than 100mm and also with the NEO50 lifting hook.

Manual Override

If there's ever the need to manually override NEO20's electronics, the process is very simple.

  1. Insert a 6mm hex key into the slot/groove and push the key upwards.
  2. Repeat these steps a couple of times until the LED status indicator is red.
