“Our newly launched C-series electric chain hoist has been designed using the latest technologies so that an enhanced and safe performance can be delivered, while offering an optimal lifetime value. The unique C-series, is a new generation in electric chain hoists which, through its innovative design, can be used for over one million operations” said Emil Berning, Managing Director of Konecranes and Demag (Pty) Ltd.

Launched late in 2019, the C-series has been ‘built smart’ with the toughness, precision and reliability of the company’s Core of Lifting components. “It is our most advanced electric chain hoist yet, with a lifting capability of up to 5,000 kg. Additionally, the C-series brings more control and mobility to working areas due to its new and more compact hoist shape” commented Berning.

The hoist, which boasts a redesigned motor cooling system, offers up to a 50% longer runtime than the previous generation, with a brake built for over a million operations. Safety features such as the operating limit switch and safety clutch have been enhanced for better performance and reliability. The redesigned chain sprocket pairing gives the chain a higher lifetime expectancy and ensures smooth and reliable operation.

Berning said “I believe that Konecranes has taken the electric chain hoist to a completely new level of operation through tangible state-of-the-art improvements that will make a major impact and difference to customer’s lifting facilities”.
