Harrington Hoist_horizHoists offer a simple solution for lifting heavy, awkward equipment or objects. 

Humans and industrial robots have their limitations, especially when it comes to heavy lifting. 

Even the strongest industrial robot will struggle to lift a load with weight that is unevenly distributed. These cumbersome objects can cause your productivity to plummet. 

Thankfully, hoists can easily lift these types of objects without putting anyone’s safety at risk. Learn more about hoists and where to get one at iGAM below.

What is a hoist? 

hoist is a versatile appliance used to lift and lower freely suspended equipment or other objects that would otherwise be too heavy or awkward for humans or industrial robots to lift. 

Hoists can be electric or manual. They may also use air power. Hoists fall under the overhead lifting system category, along with cranes and monorails. 

There are many uses for hoists across all industries, from pulling out tree stumps in your backyard to lifting a steel beam on a construction site. 

Safety protocol when using a hoist 

To maintain safety standards, you should follow these protocols when using a hoist: 

  • Check the hoist daily for signs of wear or damage. 
  • Do not exceed the safe lifting limit as stated by the manufacturer. 
  • Hoist from directly over the load to prevent swaying. 
  • Ensure that the lifting area is clear of personnel and loose objects. 

By practicing these tips, your employees can make the most out of your hoist without compromising their safety. 

Benefits of adding an electric hoist to your facility 


Why should you add aelectric hoist to your manufacturing facility? We think you’ll find that these benefits are worth the investment: 

  • Improves workplace safety: Workers don’t have to strain or sustain injury when lifting heavy loads. The hoist does all the work for them. 
  • Expands warehouse capabilities: By offering a heavier load capacity, hoists allow you to get more done in your warehouse. 
  • Protects equipment: With an electric hoist, there are no fears about dropping precious and expensive equipment and products. You can rest assured that the hoist will gently move heavy objects without causing any damage. 

Hoists are a simple solution to a common problem in manufacturing facilities. By letting a hoist handle the heavy loads, you’ll experience all the benefits listed above.
