Wire Rope Hoists


The electric wire rope hoist is generally used with top running, single or double girder cranes. This hoist has long lifting capabilities and exceptionally fast lifting speeds. It provides an explosion proof atmosphere, low headroom, and can be used for food grade applications. Basic designs include built-up and modular hoist systems. The modular system has a general capacity of 1/2 ton to 50 tons whereas the built-up system handles up to 300 tons. Additional options include:

  • Stainless steel wire rope
  • VFD controls (variable frequency drive)
  • Load cells (displays weight of current load)
  • Secondary mechanical brakes
  • Rotary limit switches
  • Radio controls
  • Overload protection devices
