Electric engine hoist is kind of small and light lifting equipment. Engine electric hoist has advantages of small volume, light weight, simple operation and convenient use. It is widely used in factory, mine enterprise, warehouse, workshop etc. It is composed of electric motor, transmission mechanism, drum or sprocket. It mainly includes two types, wire rope hoist and engine chain hoist.

What are parts’ names and functions of engine hoist?
Electric hoist parts mainly include lifting motor, trolley travelling motor, reducer, drum, rope- guide, hook, wire rope, limit switch, stroke limiter. Lifting motor provides power for lifting and it is attached with brake device. Reducer can change the rotate speed of motor output shaft, transfer the power to the drum. Drum can launch and recovery rigging through rolling itself. It is called drum for wire rope hoist and sprocket or chain box. Rope-guide can arrange ropes in order. Hook connects goods and rigging and sustains the lifting weight. According to production methods, it can be divided into two types, forging hook and plate hook. Forging hook is used more widely.
How does limit switch of engine hoist work?
Limit switch is also called fire stopper, a kind of security protection device. It can automatically cut off the power when electric hoist rises or falls to a certain degree. It has advantages as compact structure, simple use, safe operation, reliable performance. When the hoist rise to a certain degree, the outstanding block on the guide rope device overwhelms stroke limiter, and the hoist stops lifting, thus can avoid hook hit against the cover. The principle is the same when electric hoist falls. Limit switch can protect the machine comprehensively.
How to ensure the safety of engine hoists?
Engine hoist safety is very important, so it is necessary to learn the operation rules.
1.Before lifting, mechanic parts should be checked carefully. When using outdoor, anti-rain cover is necessary.
2.Overload is not permitted. When lifting, never strike.
3.The lifting material should be tied tightly and can’t be lifted so high.
4.Wire rope should be arranged in order.
5.The material should be lifted in vertical, not sliding.
6.After working, the electric hoist should stop in pointed place. The hook is lifted, the power is cut off.
Get the right lifting power you need with an electric engine hoist
There are different types of hoists for different types of lifting. When lifting engines, most of the time hydraulic hoists are used. But, electric engine hoists are just as helpful and they are available in varying sizes and power modes. This allows them to be used in professional garages as well as in workshops where the amateur car enthusiast can take advantage of these helpful tools.
Electric engine hoists are ideal for lifting heavy objects. They are often used in sawmills to lift heavy items or in factories when manufacturing products of significant size are involved. They are also used in car repair or service stations. Some people have found that they are useful in lifting up machinery like lawnmowers so that the blades on the machine can be removed and sharpened.
These engine hoists are the exact opposite of hydraulic hoists. They work automatically and no manual force needs to be applied to get them to work. One of the only drawbacks of an electrical engine hoist is that it has to be used near a power source in order to function.
Electric hoists are easier to operate than hydraulic hoists. The operator simply pushes a button on a remote control which is in stark contrast to the hydraulic hoist where an operator has to pull the hoist’s chain to lift a heavy load.
Depending on the type of engine you need to lift, you must be careful in choosing the right electrical hoist. If you are going to lift a variety of engines or other machinery with the hoist be sure it has sufficient loading capabilities. There are plenty of references available online that can help you compare one type of hoist with another based on the tonnage that you need to lift.
Note that unless these types of hoists have the right scaffolding they cannot be used outside. These hoists are not easily moved once they are put down, so if you plan to use one to repair cars, be aware that any of those cars must be placed near the hoist. In contrast, hydraulic hoists can be moved around.
As for price, these hoists are generally much more expensive than the other kinds. But, you do get what you pay for in terms of convenience. There is much less work involved in handling any engine or another large object when you push a button and let the electrical hoist do all the work.
They can save money for a business in the long run because of how much more quickly they can remove an engine from a car. You will probably be able to spend much less on labor when your shop uses electric powered hoists.
While most electric powered hoists are much more expensive than other types, you can save money by choosing a machine that will lift only the amount of weight you expect to need it to. Those that lift fewer pounds usually cost much less than those that lift several tons.
