  • Hoist

      • Electric chain hoists industry

      • Simple and easy to use – reliable and safe in operation – long-lasting and easy to maintain. GIS electric chain hoists have been developed and manufactured in Switzerland for more than 50 years. Hundreds of thousands of them are in operation worldwide – stationary or mobile.
            • Electric chain hoist GP

            • GPM250, GP250 - 2500, up to 6300 kg

              The GP is simple in its structure and does not contain any sensitive electronics, which minimizes the risk of operational  interruptions. It is characterised by quiet running and is made for longevity whilst working hard. The ergonomic control switch with 42 V low voltage allows convenient and safe working. Maintenance is easy, quick and needs no special tools.

              Profile steel chain
              The case hardened and manganese phosphated profile steel chain provides about 15% more capacity at an identical nominal diameter compared to the traditional round steel chain. The larger cross-sectional area reduces wear and increases the lifetime of the chain. The load hook with stable, guided hook latch and safety rubber buffer provides maximum safety.

              Polygonal connections
              The inner part of the modularly designed chain hoist embodies real innovation. All shaft-hub connections are built to a polygonal design. This allows significantly faster disassembly and assembly during maintenance.

              Protection class IP65
              A feature of the hoist and the control switch is the protection class IP65. It is dust proof and protected against water jets. As it is compact and robust designed, the GP is best suited for dusty environments as well as for outdoor operation.

              Control switch
              The control switch fits comfortably in your hand and is ergonomically designed. It is robust, impact resistant, safe to operate and controlled by 42 V low voltage. Push buttons placed in parallel increase the ease of operation. The external strain relief protects the control cable.

              LP500 - 2500, up to 2000 kg

              For both path and load measurement, additional components and electrical parts can be easily integrated in the chain hoist. On the drive shaft and/or the chain wheel, the installation of incremental or absolute encoders is prepared for path measurement. Special eyebolt and hook suspensions allow easy installation of a load measuring pin for load measurement. Our partners who develop and supply the control for multiple hoists value this highly.

              All LP motors are equipped with a 3-stage self-contained gear. The helical gearing with geometric optimisation and the chain wheel with minimum 5 pockets ensure extremely quiet running. This allows the quiet handling of loads during events. Thanks to the sound absorption of the transmission the sound pressure level of the LP500 is only 60 dB.

                Electric chain hoists for wind power plants are used for the transportation of spare parts and tools from the ground to the nacelle.
                Because of the large lifting height these hoists are equipped with some special features:

                For example there is an automatic switch from normal to creep speed before the end postion is reached.
                This function avoids that load hook runs against the hoist's housing with high speed as this could possibily cause unsecured parts of the load to fall down (i.e. items from the tool box).

                The protection cap over the load hook is another gadget. It elminates the risk that load hook sticks to something unintentionally during the long way to the top.

                          The underslung travelling crane is a popular variation of GIS travelling cranes.
                          The crane tracks are usually mounted directly to the ceiling. For this reason, the longitudinal trolleys are mounted below.
                          This solution allows us to incorporate the standard trolleys. Various construction solutions according to our customer’s requirement demand special versions such as higher hook dimension, overhang load, with or without telescopic version, bypass control or large span widths.

                          In many cases, the monorail is the most conventional solution for material transport from A to B. A prerequisite for this that the points can be connected with a line.
                          Variations in the lines are corrected by bends or track switches.
                          The commercial I or H steel profiles are low cost and designed for heavy lifting capacities. GIS manual or motorised trolleys are ideally suited as a complementary system and can be adapted to the flange width of the steel beam by adjustable bolts.

Edwin Schuler, head of maintenance at Victorinox says: "GIS electric chain hoists and cranes have been used in our production plant for years, because we rely on Swiss quality and we appreciate proximity to the manufacturer with the appropriate expertise."
                                          • Metall and steel prosessing

                                          • GIS travelling cranes, light crane systems or slewing jib cranes with electric chain hoist and trolley are used in this industry primarily for internal transport of goods. For particularly difficult local or spatial conditions we also design special constructions as telescopic cranes, cranes in low profile design for optimum utilisation of the room height or free-standing crane systems with unshielded or insufficiently resilient building structure.
                                          • Food industries

                                          • Whether a crane system with big-bag cross or spreader beam for transporting feed sacks or galvanised and radio-controlled systems for the immersion of cheese wheels in a salt bath: the locations and applications for GIS crane systems and vacuum system solutions in the food industry are manifold. The requirements range from corrosion resistant components, via acid-resistant paint to the use of special food grade grease for the gearbox and the load chain of the electric chain hoist.
                                          • Public transport

                                          • GIS electric chain hoists and cranes are used by countless suppliers and manufacturers of public transport such as rail, metro, tram, bus, post bus, boat, plane, funicular and cable car. On the one hand they are used for machine loading in producing components for public transport and on the other hand GIS cranes are also useful helpers in the maintenance and servicing of public transport.
                                          • Transport and logistic

                                          • GIS crane systems and vacuum handling systems offer excellent support when assembling and palletising packaged finished products before delivery to the shipping department. With our lifting aids the handling of goods is carried out efficiently and ergonomically. Also in external logistics, such as in the aerial cable way Titlis, GIS electric chain hoists are used for the transport of goods or transport of the snow groomer from the valley station Engelberg.
                                          • Entertainment industry

                                          • In theatres, schools, sports centres, multi-purpose halls, arenas, convention centres, TV studios or concert tours GIS electric chain hoists are in use worldwide. They are quiet in operation, light and compact, which is why they are ideally suited for the special requirements of the entertainment industry. Whether as a permanent installation in opera houses such as Zurich, Helsinki and Sydney, in O2 arenas like Berlin or Prague or as a climbing hoist in mobile events: our customers appreciate the reliability and operational safety of GIS electric chain hoists and the corresponding durability.
                                          • Wind- and waterpower

                                          • Mainly used for maintenance work on the generators our travelling cranes, bridge cranes and electric chain hoists used in hydroelectric power plants. Up to 150 m in height above ground the GIS electric chain hoists come up in the nacelle (gondola) for repair and maintenance work in wind turbines. The fitter appreciates especially that the fast rising speed of the electric chain hoist automatically reduces before reaching the gondola. He does not need to monitor continuously for up to 15 minutes the lifting operation and can concentrate in the meantime on other work.
