Company engineers Global King and World Series wire rope hoists for challenging material or product handling and transfer. For greater speed adjustment, improved load control and increased hoist life, the hoists are available with Magnetek variable frequency drives, providing user-friendly controls and a keypad for easy programming and on-the-spot troubleshooting.
Addressing demand for longer lifts, the company has expanded Global King and World Series offerings to include 60- and 80-ft. lift hoist models, the former available as monorail or top-running units with capacities up to 15 tons and lifting speeds of 20/5 fpm. The 80-ft. models are available as monorail units with capacities up to 7.5 tons and lifting speeds of 40/10 fpm. To ensure long service life and operator safety, Global King and World Series hoists are available with the Pulse Monitor Electronic Hoist Data Interface. The system records key performance data during normal operation to assist in troubleshooting and determining preventative hoist maintenance solutions. — Columbus McKinnon, 800/888-0985; www.cmworks.com
