      • Wire rope hoists

    • ABUS electric wire rope hoists are the core element of our crane systems. They are also the result of many decades of research and development by ABUS. Our wire rope hoists are produced at the ABUS production plants at Gummersbach using the most advanced technology available and continue to bear witness to the reliability, and durability of our products. The SWL range of ABUS electric wire rope hoists extends from 1 t to 120 t. Our customers can choose from a wide range of models depending on application and requirements - starting with the standard wire rope hoist in the lower SWL range up to special crab unit designs incorporating additional features at the higher SWL range. However, all wire rope hoists have these characteristics in common: highest levels of uptime availability and safety within materials handling operations.

This is the option to use where very little space is available above the crane, as an alternative to type DQA, also a low headroom option.

      • Electric Chain Hoists

    • No crane without hoists - they are the heart of all crane systems.

      Chain hoists in daily use at workstations have to be robust, reliable and low-maintenance. The ABUCompact range of ABUS electric chain hoists offer solutions for up to 4 t SWL featuring the high build quality for which ABUS is well-known. The modular design allows a huge range of lifting speeds of up to 20 m/min for hook paths of up to 50 m.

      Precision lifting, safety slipping clutch and quick plug-type connectors are as integral a part of the standard configuration as is the tried and tested durable direct control for sizes GM2, GM4 and GM6.
