Upper Block Limit Switch Now Standard on Yale Global King & Shaw-Box World Series
Get added safety without added cost on these industry-leading wire rope hoists
Columbus McKinnon Corporation (NASDAQ: CMCO), a leading designer, manufacturer and marketer of material handling products, systems and services, has made two of its most popular wire rope hoists even safer. Yale Global King & Shaw-Box World Series wire rope hoists now ship with a block-operated upper control circuit limit switch as standard equipment – with no change in price. The new upper block limit switch is in addition to the upper and lower geared control circuit hoist motion limit switch that is currently part of the standard offering.
“Previously, an upper block limit switch was provided as an option if required for customers’ application needs,” said Carlos Bassa, Global Product Manager – Wire Rope Hoists. “Columbus McKinnon has made this feature standard as part of our effort to provide the safest lifting possible. Also, it alleviates confusion regarding CMAA and ANSI standard requirements. Our customers also realize cost savings because, unlike many of our competitors, there is no additional charge for this upgrade.”
Yale Global King and Shaw-Box World Series hoists can be configured to meet your exact requirements, whether you need long lifts, special control options or features for hazardous environments. These wire rope hoists deliver best-in-class performance and dependability that customers have come to rely on around the world.
