Built-up hoists are highly-engineered and completely integrated systems that are used primarily on Class D, E, and F cranes. These hoist systems operate on process cranes and are built to withstand high-output production and demanding industrial environments. No two built-up hoist systems are alike as they’re completely customized for the job at hand.
A built-up hoist consists of robust and specially-designed components that are designed to work together to accomplish a very specific and precise lift. Some of these components include:
Drives and control systems
Many of these components are precision-machined to very specific tolerances and designed to last so they can perform a complex or critical lift over and over again. The materials used on a built up hoist are often high alloy, heat-treated/hardened, and precision welded to reduce stress, fatigue, and distortion within the system.
