ABUS Wire Rope Hoist
The SWL range of ABUS electric wire rope hoists extends from 1 t to 120 t. A wide range of models depending on application and requirements are available – starting with the standard wire rope hoist in the lower SWL range up to special crab unit designs incorporating additional features at the higher SWL range.
However, all wire rope hoists have these characteristics in common: the highest levels of up-time availability, and safety within materials handling operations.

TYPE E – MONORAIL HOIST
The type E monorail hoist is our most frequently ordered hoist in the lower Safe Working Load range between 1 t and 16 t. These hoists tend to be the most economic choice for many standard applications of material flow. The compact design of the type E wire rope hoist offers favourable dimensions. The hoists feature two direct drive cross travel motors. The cross travel trolley is adjustable to suit various flange widths.
TYPE U – MONORAIL HOIST WITH TWIN TROLLEYS
The monorail hoist with twin trolleys type U is used for high load capacities and long hook paths. The SWL range extends between 6.3 t and 25 t. The cross travel trolleys feature direct drives without exposed reduction gearing. This lower flange trolley is fitted with 8 wheels for better load distribution. Thus ordinary rolled section beams can be used for monorail track applications. Cranes with higher load capacities yet smaller spans can be designed as single-girder cranes when using the hoist type S. Advantages as to the total investment can be achieved in comparison to the double-girder crane.
TYPE S – SIDE-MOUNTED HOIST
The side-mounted hoist type S is characterised by the hook being positioned beside the crane girder. Thus an optimised highest hook position is achieved in the SWL range of 1 t to 10 t. The optimised hook position is not only an advantage in existing buildings. When designing new factory buildings the side-mounted hoist type S can be employed to reduce the total investment costs: it is possible, for example, to design cranes with spans of up to 35 metres or more as single girder cranes. Compared with a single-girder crane using a monorail hoist type E the building height can be reduced which will result in a lower cost volume. Compared with a double-girder crane of about the same height, the loads on the crane track and the building are significantly lower which is often another cost advantage.
TYPE D – STANDARD CRAB UNIT
The double rail trolley type D is our compact standard crab unit for the medium SWL applications between 1 t and 63 t. This design is characterised by articulated end carriage joints that ensure positive contact of all four wheels with the track. The hoist trolley of this crab unit features two direct drive cross travel motors. Some D type hoists can be used for so-called true vertical lift applications as hook ‘wander’ (movement along the barrel) and rotation are absent. This is a major advantage for crane users in case of applications that require lifting of guided loads or turning loads with two hoists. In addition, maintenance platforms can be fitted to this crab unit making for easier and safer service and maintenance —with walkable platforms being an option also. Should the available clearance above the crab unit be restricted, a stooled-down version ( type DA ) is available upon request.
TYPE DA – LOW HEADROOM CRAB UNIT
In contrast to type D, the supporting member with the hoist between the end carriages is equipped with articulated joints. The hoist headroom is therefore reduced to a minimum. This is the option to use where very little space is available above the crane, as an alternative to type DQA, also a low headroom option.
TYPE DQA – ULTRA LOW HEADROOM CRAB UNIT
The crab unit type DQA is characterised by an ultra-low headroom. This wire rope hoist design with a SWL of up to 40 t adapts to the building contours, even if there is very little clearance above it. The rope drum axis is aligned in the direction of cross travel. The articulated end carriage joints ensure positive contact of all four wheels with the track. The hoist trolley features two direct drive cross travel motors.
TYPE Z – TWIN BARREL CRAB UNIT
The twin barrel crab unit type Z is our standard wire rope hoist for heavy duty transport applications. The Safe Working Load range for type Z is between 8 t and 120 t. The articulated end carriage joints ensure positive contact of all four wheels with the track. The hoist trolley of this twin barrel crab unit features two direct drive cross travel motors. These come as epicyclic or flat geared motors depending on the diameter of the wheels. In addition, maintenance platforms can be fitted to this crab unit making for easier and safer service and maintenance – with walkable platforms being an option also. Should the available clearance above the crab unit be restricted, a stooled-down version (type ZA) is available upon request, a design characterised by ultra-low headroom that adapts to the building contours in an optimal way.
