An Electric Wire Rope Hoist is a heavy duty lifting appliance with a higher lifting capacity than other hoisting options. Hoist UK offer three wire rope hoisting options that each have unique advantages and associated benefits and are each suited to different applications dependent on the user’s operation.
Our Electric Wire Rope Hoist options include:
The Eurobloc VT electric wire rope hoist is a quality, heavy duty hoist best suited for high lifting capacities of 10,000kg or more and offers fast lifting speeds. The VT offers the smallest minimum hook height and hook approach distance on the market for a wire rope hoist, and there is also the possibility to adjust speed while travelling.
The Eurobloc VM Essentials electric wire rope hoist has been designed for use with crane kits only. Controlled by pendant or radio control, the Eurobloc VM is a more economical alternative to the VT electric wire rope hoist as unlike the VT as it's optimised for use on an overhead/underslung crane. The VM Essentials electric wire rope hoist is able to lifting loads ranging from 2,000kg to 20,000kg.
The Eurobloc VT open barrel electric wire rope hoist boasts the largest lifting capacity within the Verlinde range of electric wire rope hoists, with a safe working load of 10,000kg to 250,000kg and a height of lift up to 129 metres. The hoist also provides rapid and variable lifting speeds by closed loop inverter technology and the large load capacity is achieved without having to utilise a twin hoist combination.
Wire Rope Hoists are most commonly made from galvanised steel, with stainless steel available as an option. They are most suited to lifting and handling heavier loads due to their sturdy construction formed by twisting several wires together and wrapping them around a central core (usually fibre), and it is this process where the name ‘wire rope’ is derived. The resulting product is extremely strong and highly reliable.
Sometimes supplying the right lifting equipment simply isn't enough. We understand that our customers require an end-to-end solution and for over 10 years Hoist UK has established itself as a turnkey provider of quality, innovative lifting solutions including; design, manufacture, supply, installation, testing, commissioning and preventative maintenance.
Our range of services has been designed with our customers in mind so that we are able to fulfil any projects requirements. We understand that not every customer wants or needs an 'out of the box' product and often their are elements of the solution that need to be tailored to each customer's operation and unique application. Equally their are challenges to overcome whether it's the operating environment i.e. cleanroom or explosion proof, facility obstructions i.e. low headroom working environment or structural support challenges, which is why our technical teams of designers and engineers apply their knowledge and experience to each project so we can deliver a robust, innovative solution with a lifting solution that is not only fit for purpose but is safe and technically correct.Read More
