WIRE ROPE HOISTS VS. CHAIN HOISTS

Both wire rope hoists and chain hoists are robust lifting appliances that are widely used across numerous industry sectors in a variety of lifting applications.

The greater lifting capacity is one of the factors that makes wire rope hoists a more expensive option compared with a chain hoist, but there are other things to consider when trying to decide whether a wire rope hoist or a chain hoist would be better suited to your operation.

TRAINS COMPONENT ASSEMBLY, UK

A manufacturer of train components with on-site assembly operations required a motorised crane system for safe and easy management of large, heavy parts and materials during the process.

It was very important that the customer didn't lose any production time so the installation was planned for a weekend to ensure minimal disruption to their operations.

Our team of lifting engineers worked around the clock to ensure the installation and testing was completed during the designated weekend, leaving enough time for some user training before the system became operational on the Monday morning.
