Customer's benefit

The Handy chain model makes the transport of small loads such as boxes or containers economical.

Increased lifting speed and creep speed as a standard enable precise placement of the load. For particularly sensitive handling, the chain hoist can be equipped with a frequency converter so that accelerations and lifting speeds can be freely selected.

The control unit is rigidly connected to the load handling attachment; this makes it easy to guide the load with just one hand. For a safe and fast load pick-up, the pick-up device can be adjusted to the load that is to be conveyed.

All these features make the GPH hoist an ideal manipulator for the workplace with many repetitive tasks. It can be used stationary or ideally combined with a GISKB crane system or a slewing crane.
