Air Hoist (Chain or Wire Rope)
Air hoists are designed for applications that require a continuous duty cycle, or infinitely variable control, or when the application is in an explosive environment. They are usually more expensive than electric hoists. The NEC (National Electric Code) for explosion proof control does not apply to air hoists because there is no electricity powering them.

Trolleys and Beam Clamps
Hoist trolleys are used on beams to move the hoist horizontally. They can be operated manually with a push trolley, gear operated with a hand chain, or a motor driven trolley. You can use electricity or air to power motorized trolleys. Beam clamps secure the hoist in a fixed position on an I-beam or WF-beam so that there is an anchor point to attach a hoist. The trolleys and beam clamps are designed to lift the load vertically.

Air balancers are limited to handling less than one ton of weight, and they are best for weights between 50 and 500 pounds. Air balancers are lifting and positioning devices that are ergonomic, enabling smoother operation and less strain. The air balancer uses a pneumatic system to move products and allow them to lift, lower, or move short distances. Air balancers are used with workstations and can be equipped with pneumatic, vacuum, mechanical or magnetic grips.
Winches and Capstans
Winches utilize steel wire rope cable. Capstans utilize special cord rope. The winches can be powered by manual cranking, electric power, hydraulic power or battery power. The winches and capstans come with an automatic brake to help hold the loads.
