An extended service life of up to 1900 hours representing a 20% improvement in comparison to conventional 2m FEM classified chain hoists promises to cut costs and boost productivity at toolmakers and processors alike. Many components, in fact, are maintenance-free for up to 10 years, resulting in increased time between service intervals and general overhauls. Safety features include brakes that do not require adjustment and clutches that provide protection against overload and slippage. The brake-coupling system ensures that the load is held securely in position and cannot drop.

Hoist extends maintenance cycle

An extended service life of up to 1900 hours representing a 20% improvement in comparison to conventional 2m FEM classified chain hoists promises to cut costs and boost productivity at toolmakers and processors alike. Many components, in fact, are maintenance-free for up to 10 years, resulting in increased time between service intervals and general overhauls. Safety features include brakes that do not require adjustment and clutches that provide protection against overload and slippage. The brake-coupling system ensures that the load is held securely in position and cannot drop. The slip clutch monitor automatically shuts the hoist down if the slip clutch torque is exceeded, preventing the slip clutch from wearing out due to operator error. The DC-Pro Chain Hoist is available from Demag Cranes & Components (Cleveland, OH) in 275-11,000-lb capacities with two different control configurations: standard with a pendant control or as the DCM-Pro with Demag’s Manulift control pendant for safe and easy handling of loads with only one hand. —[email protected]
