Customer's benefit

These electric chain hoists are designed for particularly low rooms and tight spaces. The chain is deflected upwards by a special guide to maximise the lifting height. To prevent large bulky loads from colliding laterally with the chain hoist housing, the hook spacing can be extended as required so that the lifting height can be fully utilised.

For moving workpieces from one workstation to another, this electric chain hoist can be combined space-savingly with manual and motorised trolleys. To get the most out of the limited space available, we recommend combining the electric chain hoist with a GIS crane system or slewing crane. o make the most of the limited space available, we recommend combining the electric chain hoist with a GIS crane system or a slewing crane. Thanks to our experienced technical department, we can work out a customised solution for you that can be optimally integrated into the space or hall.
