Columbus McKinnon Updates Wire Rope Hoists | Industry News

Columbus McKinnon Corp. announces the Yale Global King and Shaw-Box World Series wire rope hoists now include longer 60 ft. lifts and an improved electronic hoist monitoring system.

The 60-ft. lift models are available as monorail or top-running units in capacities up to 15 tons. Most models are two-speed with lifting speeds of 20/5 FPM with the exception of 15-ton units, which have lifting speeds of 18/4.5 FPM. All Global King and World Series models feature heavy-duty DC disc brakes, a two-speed hoist motor, limit switches and a low-headroom design.

To help ensure the proper use and maintenance of Global King and World Series hoists, Columbus McKinnon offers its Pulse Monitor electronic hoist data interface standard on all models. The Pulse Monitor is an electronic monitoring system that records key performance data of the hoist during normal operation. Recorded with a time and date stamp, recorded information includes: motor starts, cumulative run time, plug events, overcapacity events, motor trip events and voltage measurements.

“The Pulse Monitor can help provide a lower total cost of ownership for your CMCO hoist,” said Paul Smielecki, global product manager, wire rope hoists. “The Pulse Monitor allows for better maintenance timing, reduced downtime due to improper hoist use, verification of clean line voltage, and ultimately a longer hoist life.”

The Pulse Monitor System is available in four different kit varieties, including the Pulse Monitor interface kit with USB adaptor, as well as kits for adaptation to other Columbus McKinnon hoists.
