Eurochain Vario Electric Chain Hoist – Variable Speed Lifting (VR5 / VR12)

The Eurochain VR Vario electric chain hoist offers enhanced productivity through continuous speed control which features soft start, rapid acceleration and soft stop, to optimise load-handling operations. The extended speed range (ESR) system allows the hoist to run at faster speeds with lighter or no loads to increase productivity.

Electric braking reduces brake wear since the mechanical brake is used only as holding brake (parking brake).

  • Electric braking reduces brake wear
  • Reduced mechanical impacts and extended lifetime
  • Optimised load handling operations
  • Rapid accelerations and soft start/stop

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.
