Ingersoll Rand®, a global leader in reliable and innovative power tools, introduces the ELK Series Electric Chain Hoist with unique, modular features that make it easy to maintain, thus reducing the time required for maintenance and employee training.
The hoist’s modern design makes it so lightweight and accessible, it can often be serviced while still mounted. When it’s time for service, the hoist’s external motor is easy to remove and minimises disassembly time. The self-contained gearbox requires minimal maintenance since it includes permanent lubrication, and has less parts and complexity.
“With the introduction of the ELK Series Electric Chain Hoist, we are bringing an electric hoist to market that meets the reputation for durability and reliability of our MLK, CLK and HLK hoists,” said Austin Lieb, vice president of product management and marketing at Ingersoll Rand Power Tools. “Customers can now choose an electric hoist that is modern, compact and significantly lighter than what is currently on the market, making it easier for them to use and maintain their equipment.”
The ELK Electric Series Chain Hoist is available in capacities ranging from one-eighth ton to one ton, with capacities up to five tons available later in 2018. Whether lifting an automotive component onto an assembly line or a mould in a foundry, the hoist supports applications in general industry and manufacturing, oil and gas, heavy equipment manufacturing and wind generation.
The ELK Hoist is durable and reliable. It can handle a high volume of loads in accordance to the H4 standard. The aluminium die cast housing of the ELK Hoist stands up to harsh manufacturing environments, so the hoist can be used for indoor and outdoor applications. It is dust tight, water-jet resistant and has built-in drain housing which makes it suitable for outdoor use where sand or other particles are airborne.
