How does an electric chain hoist work?
Electrical chain hoists feature a hoist motor, a trolley motor, and a brake for moving loads. The hoist motor converts electrical energy to mechanical energy and move the chain sprocket to lift the chain hook and the load. After lifting to the required height, the motor stops the operation. Then the trolley motor starts working and moving the chain hoist and the load to the destination through the trolley.
Once reaching the destination, the trolley motor stops, and the hoist motor starts pulling down the chain to unload the load. The electromagnetic brake of the hoist works to avoid possible falling off of the load during the lifting process.
What is an electric hoist?
Electric hoists are modern solutions for low to medium lifting needs in an industrial or production environment. They feature a hoist motor and trolley motor, and they work together to lift loads from one point in a workplace, move to another point, and drop the load there.
Since the hoists are operated by electricity, you can control their operations hassle-free. Electrical hoists are ideal for small machine shops, warehouses, and industrial production lines that require faster and more frequent lifting.
How do you use an electric hoist?
Based on your specific requirements, you can install an electric hoist as fixed or attach it to a trolley to move the loads in the workspace. You can control the operations of an electric hoist using radio controls or a pushbutton pendant.
An operator can control the operations easily, and most electric hoists are hard-wired. Importantly, the operations of the electric hoists can be easily automated, making it an ideal choice in the production lines.
How do you double line an electric hoist?
If you want to lift heavier loads, you should consider choosing double line electric hoists. In a double line hoist operation, the pulley hook is spooled onto the wire cable. Also, the support hook is anchored into the designated support hole built into the hoist frame.
Importantly, the hook must be securely fixed into the support hole, and you should check and ensure that the safety clasp is fully closed to lock the hook within the support hole. After clasping, the pulley hook can directly be attached to the wire cable.
