Chain hoist crane – overhead hoist
Hoists and cranes are both machines that help move and lift heavy loads on the job site, but they have many fundamental differences in design and usage.
Below, we set the record straight about what each of these devices does, and how they work together to assist in your next project.
Chain hoist cranes are suitable for a wide variety of industrial and specialized applications.
Whether you need a work station crane, an overhead traveling crane or a rotating crane, chain hoist cranes are always the ideal choice.
Overhead crane design – hoist crane design: It is understood that each client is different and so are their needs; custom cranes are designed and built to meet the individual requirements of your application.
You may want to buy a full chain hoist crane or upgrade your existing crane with an electric chain hoist. You can choose a single or double bridge beam crane for your work area.
Hoists are defined by their lifting medium, power, and suspension.
LIFTING MEDIUM: The lifting medium is the flexible material that connects the load hook to the overhead body of the hoist. It can be either a rope, metal cable, welded link chain, or roller load chain. Welded link chain, like an anchor chain, is a series of identical metal loops attached together to form a string. Roller load chain, like a bike chain, is made from alternating roller links and pin links to form a line that easily engages with a toothed sprocket.
POWER: Hoists can be powered manually, electrically, or pneumatically. Manual hoists use a pulley to multiply the operator’s pulling force. You can also use electricity or air power to actuate a hoist motor. Choose what’s easiest to access. Factories with many air tools might find air power more convenient.
SUSPENSION: The suspension method for a hoist depends on how it will be used. A stationary hook-mounted hoist is a simple solution when you only need to move a load straight up, such as from a truck to a trailer. Meanwhile, a hoist bolted to a beam will handle heavier loads. A hoist can be mounted to a trolley running along a beam or a rail, giving you the ability to lift up then across the facility. Gantry cranes give you three-dimensional motion. You can lift up, move the hoist along the gantry rail, then move the crane itself wherever you need it.
Double hoist overhead crane
Double hoist crane is a single girder crane with two Electric hoists for efficient material handling. Double hoist cranes have various designs such as double hoist Overhead Crane, and double hoist Gantry Crane.
Which double hoist crane is ideal for your application?
Double hoist crane
Double hoist crane is usually for indoor use, such as in the workshop, warehouse for handling and lifting small and medium tonnage items.
Generally, when choose or use double hoist crane, we usually consider it with one electric hoist, while in some specific situation, which need two electric hoists hoisting together, then the double hoist crane should be equipped with two electric hoists.
Bridge crane hoist
Overhead hoist and crane – bridge crane hoist: When the double hoist crane needs to be equipped with two electric hoists, the following items should be considered.
Two electric hoists capacity does not exceed the design capacity of the double hoist crane. That is, if you want to hang two 1Ton electric hoists, the double hoist crane lifting capacity should be 2ton or more.
If the double hoist crane total lifting capacity is greater than or equal to 1Ton, it needs the enterprise which has relevant qualifications to carry out the reconstruction.
