Wire rope hoists use wire rope as the lifting medium and perform the lift by wrapping the cable around a grooved drum. They can be powered manually, electrically, or pneumatically.
Wire rope can be used as the lifting medium in many industries but is especially popular in production environments because it can perform lifts at a faster speed, lift to higher heights, and can be rated for more severe duty cycle classifications when compared to chain hoists. They are also able to dissipate heat from extended usage with higher duty cycles in more demanding or severe lifting applications.
Advantages of Wire Rope Hoists:
Offers very fast lifting speeds
Can be rated to severe duty classifications
Dominates the market at 10-tons and above
