PW wire rope hoist features include new low maintenance, sealed brakes, a two-speed hoist motor, and trolley inverter control. PW hoists are designed to meet and exceed either ASME H3 or ASME H4 duty (FEM 1Am, 2m, or 3m) ratings and provide the ultimate in easy load handling, safe operation and lasting, trouble-free performance. PW hoist is high efficiency and make the most of the space.
A wire rope hoist is a device used to lift and move heavy objects by using a wire rope, or cable, attached to a moving pulley. A hook is affixed to the end of the cable, and it is used to grapple onto an item to be lifted. The pulley is attached to a motor, which is operated using a hand control unit. The wire rope hoist moves an object by turning the pulley, which wraps up the cable. Many types of hoists will feature a trolley system that allows the pulley and motor to move along a track, thereby making movement of heavy items even easier.
