A hoist could be considered the most important component of an overhead crane system because it’s the device that actually performs the lifting and lowering of a load. An overhead crane’s hoist lifts and lowers a load by means of a drum or lift-wheel, in which chain or wire rope wraps around.
Hoists can be defined by two main characteristics:
WIRE ROPE HOISTS
Nippon wire rope hoists come in a variety of electric and air powered styles.
Nippon provides a wide portfolio of high performance steel wire ropes for a vast variety of uses in the steel industry.
ELECTRIC WIRE ROPE HOIST
This standard air power wire rope hoist minimizes sparking, static, and electrical hazards because it eliminates the use of an electric motor.
STAINLESS STEEL WIRE ROPE HOIST
Built almost entirely out of stainless steel, these wire rope hoists are ideal for sanitary processing environments.
CUSTOM EXPLOSION PROOF WIRE ROPE HOIST
These wire rope hoists outperform competitive units in demanding and specialty lifting applications. We offer the choice of electric, air, and hydraulic motors.
Wire rope hoists offer smooth and quiet operation and can perform lifts at a faster speed than chain hoists. They typically dominate the market at capacities of 10-tons or more.
Nippon is one of the world’s leading suppliers of crane components, intended for crane manufacturers as well as for end users.
