Single-speed Electric Wire Rope Hoists is a small piece of lifting equipment. It can be installed on the I-beam alone, or it can be installed on the overhead crane (electric or manual single beam, double beam), gantry crane, and jib crane.

What can we offer you?

We can provide a series of single-speed electric wire rope hoists with a lifting weight of 0.5t-32ton, a lifting height of 1m-100m, and a light-duty (M3, M4) series.
Not only that, we can also design and manufacture non-standard series products (larger lifting weight, higher lifting height) according to your needs, which require your special needs.

The main purpose of electric wire rope hoists?

It can be installed on various types of cranes, or suspended on an I-beam, and reciprocating in a straight line or a curve.

Electric wire rope hoists are used in industrial and mining enterprises, railways, docks, warehouses, stockyards, and other places. It is a hoisting machine that improves working conditions and improves labor efficiency in current production operations.

Single-speed electric wire rope hoist is suitable for working environment -25℃~+40℃, humidity ≤85%, altitude below 1000m, the applicable power supply is 3-phase AC 380V, 50HZ (power supply can be customized according to customer requirements).

   Stationary type and operation type are both included.

   As shown on the right: A1、A2、A3、A4 separately fixed on the up, down, left, and right side. A2 is always used on the trolley of double beam crane with hoist. It is usually an operation type without special explanation, traveling along with beams.

Main Structure and Features

   Electric hoist is composed of the lifting mechanism, traveling mechanism (except fixed type), and electric parts as shown below:

1. Lifting Mechanism

Lifting motor drive winding drum rotating through coupling and hollow spindle of reducer, in order to make wire rope of drum drive the hookup and down.

Lifting Motor

  1. Tapered rotor three-phase asynchronous braking motors;
  2. High starting torque, effective braking, compact structure;
  3. Stable operation, small volume and light weight;
  4. Safety in use, convenient maintain;

  4. Great speed ratio, high accuracy;
  5. Compact structure, silent operation, high efficiency;
  6. Machinery oils;
  7. Easily assemble and disassemble.

Rope Drum

  1. Made of cast iron or seamless steel tube, light weight, transmit the dynamic force by splines.
  2. Coil casing made from superior cast iron, high intensity;
  3. The drum is the central part of the hoist. It contact with travelling mechanism above through; balance beam, with reducer and motor both sides, and with wire rope and hook below. Installed limited guide bar equipment to the up front of the outer cover.


  1. Forge with special steel; thrust ball bearing contact with casing through hook and beam to make the hook operate freely;
  2. No more than 5ton :single pulley hook; More than 10ton: double pulley hook;
  3. High security, safety buckle, mousing hook.

Traveling Mechanism

  1. Consist of electric trolley, travelling reducer, travelling motor, driven trolley, etc.  The mechanism does reciprocating motion through the main engine driven by a side plate and drum;
  2. The wheel tread is straight when used with a box-type girder or H beam;
  3. The wheel tread is circular arc when used with I-beam;
  4. Its travelling speed is 20m/min, but 30m/min is possible; if 1~5t capacity with12m or higher lilfting height, a driven trolley is necessary;
  5. Travelling Motor
    • Use tapered rotor of three-phase asynchronous braking motors;
    • Stable starting, safe braking, can be used with reducer;
    • B grade or F grade of insulation,closed structure, motor protection grade is IP44 or IP54.

Electrical Device

  1. The control box is the rational layout, convenient for maintain;
  2. The Control box protection grade is IP55, and have waterproof;
  3. The main power source is optional;
  4. Safe touchline has high electrical conduction and low pressure;
  5. The current collector has high planing speed, to ensure the sustaining power supply;
  6. Consisted with controlling box(0.25t capacity has no it), switch button, stopper, and contacting wire;
  7. The switch button power voltage is 380v or 36v, standard product is 360v, operating the switch accords to the direction symbols on it, via the discontactor’s contact and discontact(in controlling wire) to control the hoist’s moving.
  8. Safe and Standard Protecting Function: no voltage protection,ground protection,short-circuit protection,thermal    protection,over-loading protection,limit protection,overcurrent protection,power-off protection
    • Lifting limit or: broken fire limit device during up and down travelling;
    • Overloading protection: overload limiter, according to the working conditions on-site to  preinstall related parameters;
    • Top-clashing proof device: heavy punch limit or, sensitive reaction, compact appearance.
