STAHL AS7 Electric Wire Rope Hoist Expands Columbus McKinnon’s Advanced Product Portfolio

Electric Wire Rope Hoist Designed for Strength and Outstanding performance


STAHL AS7 Electric Wire Rope Hoist from Columbus McKinnon

Columbus McKinnon Corporation, a leading designer and manufacturer of motion control products, technologies, and services for material handling, offers the AS7 electric wire rope hoist as an addition to its advanced hoist product portfolio. STAHL CraneSystems, a wholly owned subsidiary of Columbus McKinnon, developed the AS7 as a cost-effective, specialized solution for users, crane manufacturers, and system manufacturers.

“As part of Columbus McKinnon’s wire rope hoist product family, the AS7 modular system offers practically unlimited component combinations to produce ideal application solutions for our Channel Partners,” said Carlos Bassa, North America product manager, wire rope hoists. “Minimal-maintenance components are optimally matched to provide continuous productivity, high efficiency, and long service life.”

The AS7 is assembled with German-made components in two designs, a deck mount configuration for stationary hoisting or towing equipment and a double girder trolley configuration for double girder overhead traveling cranes. Both designs have a maximum load capacity of 85 tons, with customization available for higher capacities upon request. The AS7 is also available in a twin drum configuration, which serves the same applications, but offers a load capacity up to 135 tons, greater lifting height, faster hoisting speed, and precise load positioning.

Also available, the ASR7, a smaller version of the AS7, is designed for a safe working load range from 20 to 35 tons. Providing a compact construction and short approach, the AS7 and ASR7 are ideal for use in restricted spaces.

A variety of models and trolley options for the AS7 and ASR7 wire rope hoist systems can be tailored to specific requirements for stationary hoisting or towing equipment. Options to further customize these wire rope hoist systems include pendant pushbutton controls, radio remote controls, emergency hoist limit switch, SMC multicontroller, load display, signal transmitters, brake release device, rope drum brake, and adjustable frequency drives. These options boost productivity, extend service life, and customize the hoist to specific requirements.

Columbus McKinnon also offers custom-made AS7 designs with lifting technology and components that comply with ATEX and IECEx approvals for EX Zone 1, Zone 2, Zone 21, or Zone 22 hazardous locations. ATEX compliance, required in the European Union, certifies that the AS7 is safe to use in potentially explosive areas with flammable gases or dust. IECEx equipment certification signifies that the AS7 conforms to international safety standards for environments where a potential exists for explosions. All equipment for the AS7 is available in an explosion-proof design.
