Columbus McKinnon’s heavy-duty crane hooks available in North America

Columbus McKinnon Corp. has a new line of heavy-duty crane hooks that includes single and double configurations with capacities up to 1,250 metric tons. The line comprises standard forged hooks, hooks with extended shafts, custom-designed hooks, complete hook suspensions, and high-quality machined and un-machined products for a variety of industrial applications.

In January 2015, Columbus McKinnon acquired Stahlhammer Bommern GmbH (STB), a European manufacturer of lifting tools and forged parts designed to withstand heavy static and dynamic loads. The products are now available to the North American market under the CM Heavy-Duty Crane Hooks name.

 “Through a unique combination of open-die and drop forging, machining and tool-making capabilities, we are able to turn pre-formed steel billets into finished, geometrically complex products quickly,” said Tim Lewis, business development manager. “Our drop forging offers shank hooks up to size no. 63 and ramshorn hooks up to size no. 125. Through open-die forging, we are able to provide shank and ramshorn hooks up to size no. 400.”
