Customer's benefit

The frequency-controlled electric chain hoists GPFU have proven themselves successfully in a variety of applications. They are often used in tough everyday conditions with long operating times and high switching frequencies, as is the case with multi-shift operation.

2 lifting speeds are infinitely programmable and can be optimally adapted to the transported goods and the application. In addition to the appropriate speeds for precise positioning of the load, the acceleration and braking ramps can also be ideally adjusted to avoid load oscillation.
