Terex Material Handling is offering a further model within its Demag DC chain hoist family for direct integration into customers’ installations. DC-ProDC units feature direct control offering a reliable solution for many applications, e.g. for raising and lowering lifting doors or furnace lids also at high ambient temperatures. Direct-controlled Demag DC-ProDC chain hoists are also employed wherever a customer wants to refurbish an existing installation and needs a simple lifting solution in which the chain hoist is to be controlled by an existing control system with a line supply. DC-ProDC chain hoists with direct control are available in seven sizes with load capacities between 80 kg (176 lbs) and 5,000 kg (11,023 lbs). Depending on the load capacity, lifting speeds range from 4 m/min (16 fpm) to 24 m/min (96 fpm).
