Yale and Shaw-Box Wire Rope Hoists Offer New VFD and Spark-Resistant Options
One of our largest vendors and business partners, Columbus McKinnon, has added new variable frequency drives (VFD) and spark-resistant options to its Yale Global King and Shaw-Box World Series electric wire rope hoists. These new options will provide more flexibility for customers and end users who will subject these hoists to unique and challenging environments and applications.
These hoists, which are manufactured domestically in Wadesboro, North Carolina, will feature VFD's for monorail, top-running double girder and deck mounted wire rope hoists. The VFD will allow for greater speed adjustment, improved load control, higher duty cycles and increased hoist life.
The spark-resistant options will be offered for hoists with under-hung and top-running trolleys. The spark-resistant options will be idea for the oil and gas industry by providing additional safety and protection in environments where flammable gases and liquids are present.
