02. Your benefits​

Almost immortal
Robust design
All components are designed for durability and ease of maintenance. Decades of experience and continuous development make the RX Electric Wire Rope Hoist a reliable partner for moving your loads.
To the moon
Planetary gear
The extremely robust planetary gearbox, which is provided with lifetime lubrication, is easily accessible and guarantees optimum power transmission between the hoist motor and the rope drum.
Heavy, heavier, overload protection
Electronic overload protection
Two cut-off points protect the hoist and all components directly affected by the load from overload (performance level C).
Construction of the monorail trolleys
The monorail trolley design allows the hoist to operate directly under and parallel to the crane or crane runway. The hoist is directly connected to the trolley. Here, too, all components are freely accessible, which guarantees ease of maintenance.
Rope guide ring
Aye aye, captain
Three-part rope guide ring with compression spring
The pressure spring ensures that the rope lies correctly in the drum groove and prevents it from falling out when the rope is slack. The guide ring always keeps the rope in the correct position.
Full power
The wheels
The wheels of the two-rail trolley are equipped with double flanges and high-quality ball bearings, and the two driven wheels have a direct power connection with the self-braking gearmotors. Easy to maintain, designed for durability, allows the best power transmission between wheels and trolley bar.
Low but mighty!
The trolley
The low profile trolley includes two traction motors mounted on planetary gearboxes. The power transmission of the gearboxes is directly to the impeller axles.
Electric engine
Full control
The electric motor
The three-phase asynchronous electric motor with cylindrical rotor is available with one speed as well as with two. The single-stage motor can be equipped with a frequency converter to enable smooth lifting and lowering movements and precise positioning of the load.
Disc brake
Braking power ahead
The disc brake
The generously dimensioned disc brake acts directly on the rotor shaft, so that the braking force is transmitted extremely effectively.
Displacement armature motor
Smart options
Displacement armature motor
Optionally, a sliding anchor motor with one or two speeds and cone brake is available. The axial displacement of the rotor provides the function of the brake. The braking torque is provided by the axially mounted coil spring.

03. A bit more needed?​

Optionally, the RX is available with a radio remote control. This is a lightweight, compact and robust solution. Functions and performance can be optimised according to the required application.
As another available option, our electric wire rope hoist can be equipped with a load collective storage. The display can be mounted both in the control cabinet and in the control cabinet door. This way, the display is visible from the outside.
As a special application, the RX is also available in a synchronisation version. This is particularly important wherever tilting of a load must be prevented at all costs.

04. Everywhere in use​

The RX Electric Wire Rope Hoist is suitable for use in a wide variety of applications in an industrial environment.
  • Production facilities
  • Repair shops
  • Plant engineering & production lines
