Hoist UK supply a variety of Electric Chain Hoists and Trolleys from leading international lifting equipment manufacturer Verlinde. Our high quality electric chain hoists are capable of lifting loads from 63kg to 10 tonnes and we offer a range of electric, manual and geared trolleys, including trolleys for curved beams and low headroom working environments.
The VM Essentials Wire Rope Hoist has been designed for use with crane kits, giving you the power of an electric wire rope hoist without the cost. With a lifting capacity of 2,000kg to 20,000kg, the VM Essentials is controlled by pendant or radio control and unlike the VT electric wire rope hoist it's optimised for use on an overhead/underslung crane.
Hoist UK supplies a wide range of compact electric chain hoists for use in industrial environments and are also available to offer additional options for bespoke applications. Our range includes hoists with hook suspension, powered, manual and much more.
Our electric chain hoists can be operated by either a simple push button control or radio remote control and come as standard with dual lifting speeds, but if a higher level of precision is required, we can offer variable speed lifting with Extended Speed Range (ESR) which allows you to optimize the speed of your hoist. The voltage for the standard range of our electric chain hoists is 400V / 3Ph / 50hz, but other voltages are available on request.
Using a powered chain hoist will reduce the risk of injury on the person lifting the heavy load, and Hoist UK can supply a range of complimentary products to assist with your specific lifting application such as jib cranes, mobile gantries or an overhead crane. Electric chain hoists are common in a variety of workplaces, they are easy to use and are a valuable tool enabling loads to be lifted quickly and safely.
Hoists, whether they are electric chain hoists, manual chain hoists, electric wire rope hoists or electric belt hoists are all manufactured with 10 years of serviceable life before a major overhaul or replacement is required. The ten year service life may not necessarily be a physical ten years of operation, but may be used up more quickly or slowly based on how the machine is being operated during its working life.
In order to help evaluate the working life of a hoist you need to be able to calculate how much of the original manufacturers Safe Working Period exists after your lifting operations have occurred.
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.READ MORE
