Konecranes introduces its next-generation CLX Electric Chain Hoist for increased productivity.

The new CLX electric chain hoist from Konecranes has been designed and tested to speed up work cycles, enhance safety and extend service life.

The new Konecranes CLX Electric Chain Hoist is targeted for manufacturing applications where high-speed load transfers and precise assembly work are required. Currently in capacities of 60 to 2,000 kg (130 to 4,400 lbs) CLX can be paired with workstation cranes, overhead cranes and jib cranes or deployed in an endless variety of fixed configurations. Larger capacities up to 5,000 kg (11,000 lbs) will be available soon. Hailed as the next-generation light lifting device in Konecranes’ current line of proven technologies, CLX is expected to capture significant market share in its segment.

A number of improvements have been incorporated into CLX over Konecranes’ previous models and over competing brands. The new aluminum frame is accompanied by a maintenance-free transmission and patented five-tooth chain sprocket with intermediate teeth. The latest oil lubrication-based transmission lowers operating temperature, enabling increased power. An available speed ratio of 6:1 enables movements that are fast – 25% faster than its predecessor – and precise, with corresponding improvement in work cycles.

Safety and maintenance features of CLX from Konecranes have also been improved to promote safe operations and a longer service life. All electronics have been placed on compact circuit boards, decreasing internal wiring and limiting the number of parts required for maintenance.

The new-generation CLX chain hoist from Konecranes boasts a modern, ergonomic look, having been created with the same design philosophy for which Konecranes has received industrial design awards in other product categories. Additionally, CLX is designed to be energy efficient and eco-friendly, meeting the requirements of the European Union RoHS Directive.
