Requirements for lifting components

In LIFTING, chains are basically differentiated into chain slings and hoist chains. The difference lies in the finer tolerances of the stainless steel hoist chains specified by the standard. Among other things, these tolerances have a positive effect on smoothness, reliability and service life when used in combination with pocket wheels.

Since 2008 we have been using cromox®, our specifically developed house brand, in order to meet our own high standards and those of our customers. From the beginning, cromox® has stood for the highest quality in all requirement areas. Only high-quality, carefully selected, stainless materials are used, which are continuously developed into new products such as load hooks or connecting shackles in our research and development department.

Depending on the area of application, different properties are required of the individual components. When using the stainless steel hoist in a cleanroom, for example in the food industry, special attention is paid to chemically clean and burr-free surfaces. This can be achieved by combining various surface treatments such as scouring and electro-polishing. When used in a pickling plant, on the other hand, the focus is on high acid resistance of all components through the processing and separate treatment of special stainless steels.

The grade and wire diameter are the most significant factors for the load-bearing capacity of a chain. Test forces (safety factors of 1; 2.5; 4) can be derived from this, and we use them to reliably test up to 160 t in our in-house laboratory, exceeding standard requirements.

From us you will get standard stainless steel chain slings with between one and four welded strands either as a modular system or as individually combinable chain slings. We can, of course, also provide custom-made products.

High-alloy stainless LIFTING components for cleanliness and safety

The basic requirements for products used in cleanrooms are cleanliness and an absence of particles. Stainless steels are designed for this purpose and can be used in a wide variety of applications.

Solutions for every application

Thanks to a large number of different stainless steel components and state-of-the-art machinery, we are able to develop and manufacture the right solution for almost every customer requirement.

We can also produce custom-made products in close collaboration with the customer: let our CUSTOM range inspire you.
