22 October 2019: Mannheim, Germany. SWF Krantechnik GmbH, a leading global player in components for crane and hoisting equipment, is launching ATHLO chain, its latest generation of chain hoists. ATHLO chain is designed for loads up to 5 t. At the start of the new series, the model will be available for loads up to 1.000 kg with further options to follow in the near future. Parallel to the release of the new chain hoist, the specialist for hoisting equipment is also introducing new electric trolleys.

High security, performance and usability along with easy maintenance and a long service life were all important factors driving the development of ATHLO chain. The modern design features a newly constructed interior and all-new mechanical components. ATHLO chain is easy to use and delivers top performance in extreme conditions.

ATHLO chain: More powerful and easier to use
The hoist motor with its new 4:1 gear ratio and redesigned cooling fins provides better cooling in order to extend the service life of the hoist.

The re-designed limit switch, which can also be used as an operating end switch, works flawlessly both in everyday usage and extreme conditions.

The new chain bag ensures that the chain runs quietly and smoothly, thereby preventing an accumulation of the chain.

The compact design and new upper-eye suspension produce an increased lifting height at the same suspension height.

The new brake is designed to handle 1 million cycles or up to a lifetime with the proper handling. It responds instantly when the power is turned off.

The slipping clutch has a larger diameter and additional grooves to improve the cooling effect of the gear oil and increase its overall service life.

With the new suspension bracket, a push or motor trolley can be installed using a special safety pin. No further tools are required.

New electric trolleys: Easier to assemble and adjust
Parallel to its chain hoist, the German crane specialist is also launching new electric trolleys that are designed for normal headroom and loads up to 1,000 kg and 3,200 kg. The next-generation electric trolleys have been developed using a mix of new and proven construction components to guarantee easy assembly and adjustments while lightening the overall weight.
