Electric Chain Hoists

Cranes-UK supply Electric Chain Hoists up to 30 Tonnes capacity to the global industrial lifting market. Nearly every brand, type and model is offered, we always do our very best to meet the customers demands by supplying only the very best quality industrial Electric Chain Hoists. We are distributors for these brands; Donati, Demag, Yale, GIS, Stahl, Kito, LiftKet, Verlinde, Lodestar, Tractel and Kone. This enables us to help assist you in finding a perfectly suited Electric Chain Hoist at the most competitive price on todays market.

When specifying your Electric Chain Hoist you are required to know the following:

  • SWL (capacity) of the hoist(s)- This determines the size and model of the hoist.
  • Height of Lift- We need to know this to work out the length of the chain and the cost of any extra chain required
  • Supply Voltage- You will need to know this to get a price and when you order as it is the voltage your hoist will run on.
  • Beam Flange Width (if applicable) The helps us determine the size of the beam trolley if you need one.
  • Approx. Number of lifts per hour (or required duty) This helps us ensure you get the correct motor.
  • Number of Speeds and if known the hoisting & Travelling Speeds required- we will usually offer you speeds to consider.

Electric Chain Hoist Options:

Dual Speed- The more cost effective option is to have a single speed but most users prefer to have the option of dual speed control on all motion functions. This enables a slow speed for creeping a load in to place as well as a fast speed for normal operation.

Chain Container- This is the collection box or bag that collects the excess slack load chain and protects it from damaging the load as it is released from the hoist body when hoisting the load up. It is always advised that you add a slack chain collector, a cheap but effective option.

Limit Switches- Offered as standard on some hoists and optional on others, upper and lower limit switches allow the user to set extremely accurate positions for the maximum and minimum hook paths to ensure that the user cannot accidently lift or lower the load too far and damage something unintentionally. Often used to avoid bulky loads from damaging the hoist body.

Radio Remote Controls- As an alternative to a wired pendant control, buyers of Electric Chain Hoists are able to specify a radio control system which enables the user to stand at a safe, remote distance from the load, this has many added advantages such as the operator being able to see from a better angle of the load, he also remains a safer distance from the load and has better flexibility when operating the hoist in general.

CPV Electric Chain Hoists

The Yale CPV and CPV/F Electric Chain Hoist is a high quality, robust example of fine German engineering. Boasting a high specification as standard as well as state of the art technologically advanced safety features. Easy to maintain- the load sprocket and chain guide can easily be removed or inspected without disassembly of the hoist. An oil bath lubricated gearbox ensures smooth running and increases the life span of the hoist. An externally adjustable slipping clutch has been specifically designed to guarantee a permanent positive connection between the load and the hoist brake as well as the electromagnetic spring pressure brake which holds the load safely even in the even of sudden power failure- for added safety and peace of mind. Available in a standard voltage of 400v 3phase 50hz (and other voltages on request) with a 42v low voltage pendant control (or optional radio control system) which is rated to IP65. Upper and Lower limit switches are fitted as standard to every hoist. Fully compatable with Yale's VTE/S range of electric travel trolleys, the hoist can be specified to be fitted with either a lug, top hook, push travel trolley, geared trolley or electric trolley with the option of single or dual speed travel. Features: Main line contactor for increased safety 50% ED duty cycle on single speed hoists Optional dual speed operation H3 Motor Classifications Capacities up to 2 Tonnes Slack chain collectors on most hoists Upper and Lower limit switches

GCH Electric Chain Hoists

GIS Electric Chain Hoists are manufactured in Switzerland to the highest standards of quality and technology. With capacities from 40kg-5,000kg GIS match a hoist to nearly every purpose. GIS take safety very seriously- each hoist is fitted with several safety devices to prevents accidents and overload such as low voltage pendant controls, overload protection devices, geared limit switches to prevent the hook from travelling further up or down than intended (these are very accurate and can be set within millimetres). Easy to operate and reliable during extreme conditions, GIS are the first choice for many companies that operate hoists with intense usage as they feature very high duty ratings and long heights of lift up to over 120m. Expertly designed and perfected in Switzerland for over 50 years the GIS range is well balanced to provide the most user friendly lifting experience with confined dimensions to enable maximum hook path in a well enclosed aluminium casing while still providing adequate ventilation to the hoist motor. The first speciality before hoists for GIS in 1957 was precision mechanical products- this set the foundation for the development of one of the most robust and precise hoists on todays market, the quality of every GIS hoist is impeccable and is unmatched by inadequate impersonations. As a testimony to the quality of the GIS hoist range we are proud to say that we have supplied spares to GIS electric chain hoists that are almost 50 years of age and still operating efficiently with only standard components being changed due to wear and tear as expected with any product over such a long period of time.
