Electric chain hoists are efficient lifting tools that can be top hook suspended, push trolley suspended or motor driven trolley suspended to serve a variety of hoisting applications. They are a lower cost solution over wire rope hoists and are suited for use in machine shops, assembly operations, work stations, maintenance tasks and general lifting applications found throughout the manufacturing, distribution and service industries.
An electric chain hoist can be mounted on Spanco jib cranes, Spanco gantry cranes, bridge cranes or monorail systems to provide hook coverage in a specified work area. They are well suited for hand pushing such as is found with push trolleys operating on Spanco jib cranes, Spanco gantry cranes and hand push bridge cranes. Operating speeds can range from 5 FPM up to 65 FPM depending on hoist capacity, with lighter capacities operating at faster speeds and higher capacity units operating at slower speeds. Most electric chain hoists and motor driven trolleys can operate at single speeds, two speeds and variable speeds. Specific applications call for various speeds.
