Product Portfolio
  • ELECTRIC WIRE ROPE HOIST

      • ELECTRIC WIRE ROPE HOIST NOVA SILVERLINE

      • NOVA SILVERLINE is our flagship product series for electric wire rope hoists. The hoists are designed for loads for up to 80 t and stand out through their optimal use of space and efficiency at an economical price.

        NOVA SILVERLINE is extremely flexible and adaptable to the needs of your customers. Individually configured electronic monitoring and control equipment can be added easily.

        • Optimal use of space
          Compact design, minimal hook dimensions, best approach dimensions available on the market
        • Low maintenance costs
          Lifetime brake, rope drum with an extra-large diameter for minimal rope wear, lifetime lubricated hoist gear, smooth cross traveling controlled by a frequency inverter for less wear and tear
        • Safe, precise operation
          Minimal lateral hook movement, low load swing and smooth load movements controlled by frequency inverters

        Features:

        • Low lateral hook movement
        • Improved use of space
        • Less wear on the wire rope drive

        Thanks to its large drum diameter, it not only uses the space better but also optimises wear in the wire rope drive and minimises lateral hook movement. This means that loads can be reliably transported with extreme precision and placed with ultimate accuracy, thanks to the minimal diagonal pull.

      • ELECTRIC WIRE ROPE HOIST NOVA BLACKLINE

      • Use the electric wire rope hoists of the NOVA BLACKLINE series to build powerful, yet economical crane solutions from 2 to 20 t. Compared to the electric wire rope hoists of the NOVA SILVERLINE series, NOVA BLACKLINE is a more basic version that combines high quality at an attractive price.

        • Optimal use of space
          Compact design, minimal hook dimensions, best approach dimensions available on the market
        • Low maintenance costs
          Lifetime brake, rope drum with an extra-large diameter for minimal rope wear, lifetime lubricated hoist gear, smooth cross traveling controlled by a frequency inverter for less wear and tear
        • Safe, precise operation
          Minimal lateral hook movement, low load swing and smooth load movements controlled by frequency inverters

        Sometimes performance only comes up if you are focused on the basics. This is exactly the idea which is behind the BLACKLINE by SWF Krantechnik. 

        A vast number of established and top-rated components arisen from the own engineering design with outstanding technologies are assigned for power and a long life. All components and products made from this meet the European safety standards. Furthermore, you can trust the experience and know-how of a worldwide operating company in a German tradition. 

        The BLACKLINE by SWF Krantechnik sets its priorities on a high quality and attractive cost effectiveness. Reliable power and an elaborate technology make the BLACKLINE unique for all who want to avoid bigger investments in a high-quality crane.

        Features:

        • Low lateral hook movement
        • Improved use of space
        • Less wear on the wire rope drive

        Thanks to its large drum diameter, it not only uses the space better but also optimises wear in the wire rope drive and minimises lateral hook movement. This means that loads can be reliably transported with extreme precision and placed with ultimate accuracy, thanks to the minimal diagonal pull.

          • Safe, rapid load handling, optimal service life

          We are truly proud of the new CHAINster. It tackles loads with enthusiasm, is always available when you need it and will work for a lifetime. It can cope with extreme loads and can be used for almost everything.

          Its newly developed chain sprocket does not just give it a longer life, but is also particularly low on maintenance. The slipping clutch ensures that nothing goes wrong, even in an emergency, and its brake is designed for its service life. It is simultaneously both fast and sensitive because of its 6:1 ratio. 

          Features:

          • Robust aluminium casing
          • Space-optimised and flexible dimensions
          • Optimum protection against external influences
          • Components easily accessible

          The innovative modular casing is based on a central cast aluminium component into which the gearbox and motor have been built in a space-optimised way. The small size achieved as a result of this design ensures flexible use. Furthermore, it offers a robust mounting for the low-maintenance cable guides and even the casing cover is manufactured from solid aluminium. Not a plastic casing.

              Ideal for use in building structures with low static load capacities
            • Flexible design
              Fast, simple assembly, various suspensions and spans supported
            • Low maintenance
            • Durable construction, non-corrosive material
            • Simplified operation
              Easy to operate, nylon wheels for less operating noise

            Because of its low dead weight, the LIGHTster lightweight aluminium crane can use the loadbearing capacity of ceilings or structures to the full. Freely positionable suspensions and large spans do not just make assembly possible, but at the same time allow an extremely flexible working range of both crane and load.

            The corrosion-free profiles are long-lived and the maintenance work and associated costs are reduced to a minimum. The systems are highly competitive, and not just in terms of the cost of acquisition.

            Featrues:

            • ow own-weight
              Can also be used in application areas capable of bearing only low static loads; ergonomic, time­saving assembly; low number of freely positionable securing points
