40+ Years of Proven Quality - Made in Germany since 1972
You've probably heard this statement before: "We promise the highest quality!"
What exactly does this promise mean?
In our case, it means that our products have been designed, developed, made, and relentlessly improved in Germany for more than 40 years.
A professional in-house engineering team constantly aims to improve our products. We aim to enhance the ease of rolling, durability, and quality. This includes making tiny adjustments that may only refine the rolling or lifting friction by 0.1 percent, but these specific modifications accumulate over 40 years and lead to vastly superior performing products!
We often work on maximizing features that cannot be seen, like heat dissipation of temperature increase during rolling under huge turning forces. All aspects of our dollies, skates, and jacks are analyzed and re-engineered to make the products more efficient.
In our in-house testing ground, we test materials, parts, and product prototypes. Every new product is then evaluated by professional machinery movers in order to detect weak points in the prototypes or parts. Any discovered deficits are then fed back to engineering.
Many companies move their production overseas, but JUNG carries on to produce products and components in Germany, and also invests in its manufacturing plant in Germany . We employ robots in the manufacturing to guarantee consistent quality among every single product. Even though other companies nowadays increasingly advertise 'engineered in Germany' - which in fact means built in another place, our products continue to be Made in Germany.
This means that every product and component is manufactured to precise dimensions and precise shape. It furthermore means that every product and component is precisely the same. When a product or component is exposed to the extraordinary forces of multiple tons of weight, any variance from the exact sizes could lead to product breakdowns.
Case in point: If the diameter between balls in bearings differs even a bit, the forces will be unevenly distributed, which will sooner or later lead to failure. Another example: If the structure is warped even by 0.1 %, then under load, it twists, which may in the long run lead to cracks.
This accuracy can only be attained through state-of-the-art precision manufacturing processes. Low-cost parts can lead to breakdowns, therefore we only employ high-quality components, and each product is exactly the same, and produced to exactly the same production standard.
Conformance to Safety Principles
Our products are put to the test to meet the most recent U.S. safety standard ASME B30.1. This standard specifies the load bearing valuation and safety capacity demanded by OSHA requirements. JUNG skates are really the only load moving skates in the United States that comply with these specifications.
All jacks are tested to comply with ANSI B30.1. All skates can just be tested to capacities of 12 tons. Larger sized dollies and skates cannot be tested, but are made to comply with the same or higher safety standards.
Because of its manufacturing process we can guarantee that each product is identical (and does not vary because it was cut, drilled, and welded by hand). Our products may well be issued with certificates of compliance or certificates of conformity (COC).
Traceability by Serial Numbers
Every product is marked with a serial number. This identifier is associated with the item's material, components, and manufacturing batches. Every part failure can be tracked back to the production batch to determine the underlying cause.
This quality assurance program guarantees that deficiencies are wiped out over the years, so that the products get ever closer to absolutely no defects. No other machine skate and toe jack producer has implemented such an advanced quality assurance program.
The factory's total quality management system is certified to ISO 9001, which ascertains that customers are provided with continuously improved quality items, and that all products achieve statutory and regulatory prerequisites.
More Expertise Provided to the Customer
Over 40 years of working experience have provided us with a vast technical knowledge base in the field of heavy load moving. We strive to transfer this skills onto our customers, and aim to make this knowledge accessible on our internet site and over the phone.
Customers can call us and discuss their problems with our technical engineers. We have confidence in supporting the potential customer before the purchase, providing support to the client during the operational phase, and providing assistance 10 years after the purchase date.
Our Goal is to Help You in Any Possible Way!
Combining all aspects, our products and customer service are supreme in quality over any other machine skate or toe jack on the market today.
Our products are used to lift and transport nuclear reactors and nuclear waste. To a small business this reliability and dependability is equally important as a product failure can be equally devastating. We supply the same product quality to small, medium and large organizations.
The Results of Poor Quality
Similar products sacrifice quality for cost. Copied parts are welded together into a product without any understanding, engineering, R&D and testing capabilities. Unreliable economical variety materials are used building the products, putting your equipment at risk for a break-down. The cheaper construction may result in frames bending from impact loading or axles snapping under load. Customers may constantly need to replace parts to keep the products in operation. Look-alike products may be advertised at higher capacities by eliminating or reducing safety capacities. Knock-offs claim higher capacity while exerting so much weight onto the same footprint that the wheels will drag behind instead of actually rolling.
Our Definition of Load Capacity
Our definition of Load Capacity goes further than just working safely below the break point:
The more weight is exerted onto the skates's footprint, the higher the break-out & rolling resistance becomes until too much weight causes the wheels to drag behind, making changing directions impossible. The maximum capacity at which a wheel still turns is limited by the pressure exerted onto the footprint (aside from the component strength). That means a 2 ton rated wheel may stop turning at 1 ton of weight. Be assured that you maintain “easy rolling” and “easy steering” at maximum capacity with our dollies and skates.
Honesty & Trustworthiness
We aim to completely educate our customers about the advantages but also about the disadvantages, considerations and limitations of our products. We do not overpromise.
All products are designed by JUNG’s full time engineering team. Besides continuous improvements to functionality and strength, the products are optimized beyond what the customer expects. For example: The dollies and skates are designed for heat dissipation to counter possible weakening over time as high temperatures build up from the enormous friction forces. Internal technology is employed to protect against impact loading and design considerations are given to chemical and environmental resistability. German engineering means test and design for every detail.
State of the Art Manufacturing and Materials
The factory employs state of the art robots in the manufacturing process to assure that every product meets the same quality standards. All products are manufactured in house in Germany. Manufacturing process ISO 9001 certified.
We don’t use standard commercial readily available materials. Our materials are specifically formulated, tested and engineered in JUNG’s research and development. Materials are engineered and custom produced for:
- High Strength
- Ease of Use
- Durability under the greatest strain
Each component, steel frame and aluminum composition is built with state of the art technology.
All products are function tested after manufactured to guarantee zero defects. Our quality control department tracks all products and components by stamped-in serial numbers to trace any problem to assure zero re-occurrence. A certified quality management program assures a consistent level of quality.
Each purchase is a one-time investment in superior quality; each product comes with a five year warranty, and is reliable even after a decade of use within its rated capacity.
