New electric chain hoists from SWF16 September 2002
SWF Krantechnik, the German distribution arm of KCI Konecranes, and Harringotn Hoists & Cranes, the US subsidiary of Kito, have both brought to market new single phase electric chain hoists.
SWF has added a 230V 50Hz single-phase electric chain hoist to its range. It is available in a 125kg safe working load version and in a 250kg SWL version.
Standard features include a single hoisting speed, emergency stop button, upper hook, and cooling fins. Various flange widths are available, and there is the option of an FND push trolley.
Harrington designates its new hoists the SNER series. They are available in capacities up to 3 US ton. Also available are new SMR motorised trolleys.
Harrington says that recommended applications for these lightweight, heavy duty single-phase electric hoists are temporary job sites, machine shops and maintenance areas where three-phase power is not available.
