WIRE ROPE HOISTS
ABUS electric wire rope hoists are the core element of our crane systems. They are also the result of many decades of research and development by ABUS. Our wire rope hoists are produced at the ABUS production plants at Gummersbach using the most advanced technology available and continue to bear witness to the reliability, and durability of our products. The SWL range of ABUS electric wire rope hoists extends from 1 t to 120 t. Our customers can choose from a wide range of models depending on application and requirements - starting with the standard wire rope hoist in the lower SWL range up to special crab unit designs incorporating additional features at the higher SWL range. However, all wire rope hoists have these characteristics in common: highest levels of uptime availability and safety within materials handling operations.
Type U – monorail hoist with twin trolleys
Monorail hoist with twin trolleys type U for high load capacities and long hook paths. Safe Working Load range between 6.3 t and 25 t. Direct drives without exposed reduction gearing for cross travel trolleys. Cranes with higher load capacities yet smaller spans can be designed as single-girder cranes when using this hoist.
Type S – side-mounted hoist
The side-mounted hoist with the hook positioned beside the crane girder achieves an optimised highest hook position. Safe Working Load range between 1 t and 10 t. The combination of optimised highest hook position and the option to design cranes with spans of up to 35 m or more as single girder cranes results in cost advantages when investing in buildings.
Type DA - low headroom crab unit
In contrast to the type D unit, the cross member supporting the hoist between the end carriages is fitted with articulated joints. The hoist headroom is therefore reduced to a minimum. This is the option to use where very little space is available above the crane, as an alternative to type DQA, also a low headroom option.
Type DQA – ultra low headroom crab unit
Compact crab unit for SWL of up to 40 t. Ultra low headroom design with rope drum axis in the direction of cross travel; with articulated end carriage joints to ensure positive contact of all four wheels with the track and with two direct drive cross travel motors.
