Wire Rope Hoists

The NOVA wire rope hoist is produced by SWF Krantechnik and is the hoist of choice for our overhead cranes. More expensive than Chain Hoists they are used when either heavier lifting capacity, faster hoisting speeds or higher durability is required. NOVA solutions are of particular interest to operators that need short approach dimensions and low headrooms. Please see key techncal data below and downloadable PDFs with dimensions etc below.

NOVA Series
