Our Best Chain Hoist Yet
The new CLX electric chain hoist from Konecranes has been designed to speed up work cycles, enhance safety and extend service life. A number of improvements have been incorporated into the CLX over Konecranes’ previous models and over competing brands.
The robust aluminum frame is accompanied by a maintenance-free transmission and patented five-tooth chain sprocket with intermediate teeth that provides quiet operation and longer chain life. The oil lubrication-based transmission lowers operating temperature, which enables increased power. The 6:1 speed ratio enables movements that are fast–25% faster than its predecessor–and precise, with corresponding improvement in work cycles.
Designed for Safety and Easy Maintenance
Safety and maintenance features of CLX electric chain hoist from Konecranes have also been improved to promote safe operations and a longer service life. Electronic components have been placed on compact circuit boards, which decreases internal wiring and limits the number of parts and time required for maintenance.
Additional safety functions have been integrated into the hoist’s construction. For example, the new slip clutch is easy to adjust and is designed to hold the load in the unlikely event of clutch failure and the new magnetic brake is designed so that no adjustments are required over the lifetime of the brake.
The new-generation CLX chain hoist from Konecranes boasts a modern, ergonomic look that allowed it to receive the prestigious Red Dot award for Industrial Design in 2013.
Satisfied CLX Customer
After using the CLX, Dayton Phoenix is enthusiastic about the new product. “The functionality is exactly what we were looking for. If a hoist needs to be replaced, we will replace it with Konecranes. Eventually we will have all Konecranes hoists on our cranes,” said Dayton Phoenix Safety and Environmental Manager Rick Colby.
