Hoists and Cranes
Spacemaster SX Hoists - QX Modular Cranes
SX hoists represent a revolutionary new generation of
exceptionally reliable electric wire rope hoists,
featuring advanced technology and cutting-edge
performance. An innovative design that includes a large
drum diameter gives Spacemaster® SX hoists the lowest
headrooms and best wheel loads in the industry while
providing near true vertical lift with single reeved
hoists, and both exceptional hook approaches and heights
Sealed brakes, two-speed hoist motors, and trolley
inverter control with a CSA c/us rating as well as a
NEMA 3R rating for electrical enclosures. Two-component
epoxy paint is standard. Spacemaster® SX hoists are
designed to meet and exceed either ASME H3 or ASME H4
duty (FEM 1Am, 2m, or 3m) ratings and provide the
ultimate in easy load handling, safe operation and
lasting, trouble-free performance.
80 ton (500 - 80,000 kg) capacities
starting at 13ft (4m) to 320ft (100m) and beyond
Lifting speed range 10/1.5 to 62/10 fpm (3/0.5 -
230, 460, 575/3/60 or 380/3/50 power supply
Single-reeved or double-reeved
safety features include a electromechanical load limit
switch that prevents the lifting of loads that are in
excess of 110% of rated capacity. The 4-position hoist
limit switch includes an innovative phase mismatch
protection circuit that prevents the block from running
up and damaging the hoist in the event of phase
Sealed brakes, hardened ground gears, thermal motor
protection, exceptional rope life and ergonomic hook
block design with sturdy safety latch contribute to the
hoist's safe operation and increased reliability.
dust-proof brakes on the trolley and hoist motors
Trolley design reduces wear on components.
trolley drive is totally enclosed, grease lubricated
and is designed to be maintenance-free.
Trolley wheel bearings are permanently lubricated.
automatic disc brake and inverter control help
extend the life of the motor and other components,
which means less maintenance, less downtime, lower
repair costs — and reduced cost over the lifetime of
your hoist equipment.
girder trolley with superior clearance and headroom
for double girder crane applications.
headroom trolley for monorails and jib crane
applications. Hardened wheels for patented track
applications are also available.
headroom trolley for single girder cranes; its
compact design provides maximum space-efficiency.
Modular Crane Packages
1/2 - 80 Ton (500 - 80,000 kg) Capacities
QX® Modular Crane packages are pre-engineered, complete
crane component packages utilizing cutting edge
technology including the innovative Spacemaster® SX wire
rope hoist. Variable frequency drives are standard on
trolley and bridge motions for smooth starts and stops.
Plug-in electrical cabling* and bolted structural
connections simplify assembly.
CONTROLS STANDARD FEATURES:
Standard inverter offers two speed or 2-step
infinitely variable speed control
c/us approved NEMA 4 type rated control enclosures
Mainline disconnect switch (mounted in door)
Plug-in connections for easy assembly and
Volt transformer with fused secondary
Supports 208, 230, 460 or 575/3/60 power supplies,
as well as 380/3/50. Control voltage for all power
supplies is 115 volt (48 volt is optional)
SPACEMASTER® HOIST CLEARANCES = SAVINGS IN NEW
Unmatched clearances - the floor area under your new
crane can now be used more efficiently. Better hook
to wall dimensions (A) compared to the competition.
roof heights/maximum lifting heights - Your new
building design can be smaller and ore functional
giving you savings in initial construction. Better
hook to ceiling dimensions (H) compared to the
operating costs - Continual savings in heating
and/or air conditioning expenses over the lifetime
of your building.
Maximum flexibility- Factory layout and material
flow planning is optimized.
