AMHERST, N.Y. — Columbus McKinnon Corporation, a leading designer, manufacturer and marketer of material handling products, has expanded the capabilities of its Yale Global King and Shaw-Box World Series wire rope hoists to include longer 60 ft. lifts and an improved electronic hoist monitoring system. Manufactured in Wadesboro, North Carolina these best-in-class hoists are designed for ease of use and long life in even the most heavy-duty applications.
Addressing industry demand for longer lifts, CM has added 60 ft. lift models to its Global King and World Series product offering. These new models are available as monorail or top-running units in capacities up to 15 tons. Most models are two-speed with lifting speeds of 20/5 FPM with the exception of 15-ton units, which have lifting speeds of 18/4.5 FPM. All Global King and World Series models feature heavy-duty DC disc brakes, a two-speed hoist motor, limit switches, and a low-headroom design.
To help ensure the proper use and maintenance of Global King and World Series hoists, CM offers its Pulse Monitor Electronic Hoist Data Interface standard on all models. The Pulse Monitor is an electronic monitoring system that records key performance data of the hoist during normal operation. Recorded with a time and date stamp, recorded information includes: motor starts, cumulative run time, plug events, overcapacity events, motor trip events, and voltage measurements.
