Trains arrives on time with Hoist UK

Hoist UK have supplied, installed and commissioned a crane system in a production facility which manufactures and assembles components for trains.

The system consists of a free standing steel structure containing 2 x 1000kg underslung cranes, which are fitted with dual speed VL electric chain hoists with variable speed cross and long travel motions.

The crane system covered an area of 9.5 metres x 8 metres with a lifting height of 3 metres.

Longitudinal travel of the crane was achieved using our PRV series articulated power trolleys, so that the maximum hook travel approaches could be achieved to give the customer the best possible crane coverage.

The crane system was designed, manufactured and installed over a weekend, so there was no loss of production for the customer.
