The CM Lodestar Electric Chain Hoist sets the standard for industrial grade hoists throughout the industry. Our chain hoists are used in a broad range of industries and applications, both as individual hoists and as component hoists in large-scale mechanical assemblies. Whether you are working on a small scale industrial operation or a large construction project, CM Lodestar’s electric chain hoist can be tailored to meet your needs.
CM Lodestar Electric Chain Hoist Features & Capabilities
CM Lodestar’s Electric Chain Hoists offer a host of unique features and capabilities that set them apart from other hoist and lift designs. Key features and capabilities include:
CM hoists are designed to operate smoothly and quietly, thereby enhancing workplace safety and operator comfort. With noise levels 80% lower than the Classic Lodestar hoist, you won’t have to worry about obtaining soundproofing equipment or material to ensure the safety of your workers.
Less Maintenance and Easy Inspection
Lodestar hoists are exceptionally reliable and efficient. The Heavy Duty DC Brake system includes helical gears, which require less maintenance than traditional designs. Precision gears in the gearbox are lifetime lubricated and the clutch is located outside the gearbox, providing reduced lifetime maintenance and easy component inspection access.
Improved Chain Life
CM Lodestar’s state-of-the-art 5-Pocket Life Wheel offers more load support for chain engagement. This ensures that loads can be lifted more smoothly, with less unwanted vibration, thereby extending the life of your chain. Our Star Grade chain is plated with a zinc protective coating to reduce the potential for corrosion and enhance overall chain service life.
Improved Load Safety
The clutch is located outside the load path, which prevents gear slippage when the brake is not in use. This helps to enhance load safety and reduces the potential for equipment damage due to slippage.
Easy Access Control Panel
The CM Lodestar Electric Chain Hoist is designed with an easy-to-use control panel with finger-safe wiring and plug-and-play connectors for quick terminal access, voltage modifications, and fuse changes.
The precision gears in the gearbox are lifetime grease lubricated, which reduces the need for regular oil changes and hazardous waste disposal. As an additional environmental benefit, we ship all of our gearboxes and components in recycled material.
