                      • GIS pillar- and wall-mounted slewing jib cranes offer a simple and functional solution for ergonomic goods handling. Depending on the desired load capacity, the jib working radius and the running properties, aluminium or steel profiles are used. In combination with a GIS electric chain hoist and a trolley (manual or electric), a GIS vacuum-handling system or another load-handling device, you get a complete crane system from one source – directly from the Swiss manufacturer.

Up to 150 m in height above ground the GIS electric chain hoists come up in the nacelle (gondola) for repair and maintenance work in wind turbines. The fitter appreciates especially that the fast rising speed of the electric chain hoist automatically reduces before reaching the gondola. He does not need to monitor continuously for up to 15 minutes the lifting operation and can concentrate in the meantime on other work.
