Overhead travelling cranes

ABUS overhead travelling cranes lift loads of up to 120 t making them the ideal solution for particularly demanding tasks and large spans. ABUS overhead travelling cranes divide into four distinctive designs to suit different applications and working conditions: Single girder overhead travelling cranes, double girder overhead travelling cranes, underslung overhead travelling cranes, wall travelling cranes and semi-goliath cranes.

Wire rope hoists

ABUS electric wire rope hoists are the core element of our crane systems. They are also the result of many decades of research and development by ABUS. Our wire rope hoists are produced at the ABUS production plants at Gummersbach using the most advanced technology available and continue to bear witness to the reliability, and durability of our products. The SWL range of ABUS electric wire rope hoists extends from 1 t to 120 t. Our customers can choose from a wide range of models depending on application and requirements - 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: highest levels of uptime availability and safety within materials handling operations.

Type E – monorail hoist
Type U – monorail hoist with twin trolleys
Type D – standard crab unit
Type DQA – ultra low headroom crab unit
Type Z – twin barrel crab unit

Electric Chain Hoists

Chain hoists in daily use at workstations have to be robust, reliable and low-maintenance.
The ABUCompact range of ABUS electric chain hoists offer solutions for up to 4 t SWL featuring the high build quality for which ABUS is well-known.
The modular design allows a huge range of lifting speeds of up to 20 m/min for hook paths of up to 50 m.

Precision lifting, safety slipping clutch and quick plug-type connectors are as integral a part of the standard configuration as is the tried and tested durable direct control for sizes GM2, GM4 and GM6.
