High-Brightness 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.

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

* This feature is optional

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

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.

Fail-safe Design

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 manoeuvring operation.
The NEO20 bell furnaces lifting hook can be paired to any of our remote controls.


Remote Control Crane Hook

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.

Quick FAQ’s

How is the NEO20 used with bell furnaces?
Not only can the NEO20 lifting hook be used for bell furnaces, but for any oversized lifting point of up to 100mm in diameter, such as rods between plates, holes on a plate, chain slings, lifting bails and other oversized lifting points.
How many types of bell furnaces are there?
There are different types of bell furnaces in the market, and the process for which the furnace is needed could be carburising, ferritic nitro carburising (FNC) or gas soft nitriding (NSF). But we must understand that all bell furnaces are not constructed in exactly the same way.
Can you customise the top link of the NEO20 lifting hook?
Yes. Different top link options can be used for the use of the lifting hook to adapt it to the lifting point.
