CLEVELAND, OH (January 7, 2010) - The Demag DC-Pro Chain Hoist includes many standard safety and performance features that allow users to achieve superior levels of performance, safety and productivity through reduced downtime, increased duty cycles, easy maintenance and improved ergonomics.
Unique to the DC-Pro is an extended service life of up to 1900 hours; a 20% improvement in comparison to conventional 2m FEM classified chain hoists. This results in increased time between service intervals and general overhauls. Many components are maintenance free for up to 10 years. These features allow the hoist to be more productive and result in lower operating costs.
Safety features include brakes that do not require adjustment and clutches that provide protection against overload and slippage. The brake-coupling system ensures that the load is held securely in position and cannot drop. The slip clutch monitor automatically shuts the hoist down if the slip clutch torque is exceeded, preventing the slip clutch from wearing out due to operator error.
The DC-Pro Chain Hoist is available in 275 - 11,000 lb. capacities with two different control configurations: standard with a pendant control or as the DCM-Pro with Demag’s Manulift control pendant for safe and easy handling of loads with only one hand.
