The latest CLX electric chain hoist from Konecranes has been designed to speed up work cycles, enhance safety and extend service life. It is extremely versatile and durable, making it ideal at a demanding workstation. The CLX can lift up to 5 tons.

Its robust aluminium frame is accompanied by a maintenance-free gearbox and patented five-tooth chain sprocket with intermediate teeth that allows quiet operation and gives longer chain life. Using oil lubrication, the gearbox lowers operating temperature, which increases power. The 6:1 speed ratio enables movement that is fast and precise, with a corresponding improvement in work cycles.

Designed for safety and easy maintenance

The Konecranes CLX electric chain hoist has been improved to promote crane safety and a longer service life. Safety is enhanced with features such as a hoist limit switch, securing brake, and hook block. In addition, the brake and slipping clutch are designed to prevent the load from dropping or micro-slipping.

Downtime has been minimized with easy serviceability and simple maintenance access. The new self-adjusting magnetic brake is designed so that no adjustments are required over the lifetime of the brake, and with plug-in connections, the components of the hoist are easy to replace.

The new-generation CLX electric chain hoist from Konecranes boasts a modern ergonomic look that earned it the prestigious Red Dot Award for Industrial Design in 2013 and a special mention in the 2015 German Design Award competition for its quality of design.
