Wire rope hoists can serve as a reliable alternative to chain hoists in certain situations. As the name implies, these lifting mechanisms consist of a wire rope wound on a drum. The raising and lowering of the roll occur by winding and unwinding the rope along the length of the drum. While wire rope hoists typically are not as robust as their chain-operated counterparts, they do provide faster lifting speeds, which can increase productivity. They also offer more options for customizing the lifting process to suit the task at hand.

Tilt Lock has the privilege of offering wire rope hoists from Columbus McKinnon, a global leader in the design, manufacturing and distribution of efficient, ergonomic material handling systems for a wide variety of industries. With more than 140 years of lifting system development, you can count on a CM wire rope hoist to enhance the performance of your operation, whether your industry is paper, chemical manufacturing or anything else that requires handling large, bulky rolls of material.
