GIS chain hoist with a GISKB crane as a helping "third hand"

A successful small crane concept is in use in the workshop of Vukadin Metallbau. The height-optimised GISKB crane system ensures maximum use of space and is an im-portant helper for internal logistics.

Especially for one-man operations or small companies, auxiliary equipment is elementary. Vukadin Metallbau in Emmenbrücke, for example, had its workshop equipped with a GISKB crane system. The height-optimised crane with integrated GP250 electric chain hoist offers maximum utilisation of the limited room height and is indispensable as a "third hand" and practical helper. Bulky and heavy loads can now be lifted and transported easily and comfortably. The gained flexibility can be an important factor in being successful as a small company.
