SPRINGFIELD, OH —Konecranes, a global leader in the manufacturing of overhead lifting equipment, offers the CXT1® electric wire rope hoist, designed to meet the demanding needs of a broad range of industrial lifting applications. CXT1 electric wire rope hoists are manufactured for one and two ton lifting applications where smooth, trouble-free performance is essential.

The trusted CXT family of hoists incorporates state-of-the-art engineering and saves on maintenance, repair, and downtime costs over the lifetime of the equipment. The CXT1 is a perfect replacement hoist for existing bridge cranes, jibs, and monorail applications; and is also the preferred solution for new one and two ton single girder top and under running industrial bridge cranes.

Konecranes CXT1 hoists are designed with large diameter drums and true lift reeving for longer cable life and accurate load positioning. The hoisting duty-rated lifting motor of the CXT1 comes standard with class-F insulation, 60% effective-duty rating, a heavy-duty DC hoist brake, and two-speed operation of the hoist and trolley.

The CXT1 boasts an impressive 6:1 hoist motor speed ratio (compared to 3:1 on many competitor hoists) and provides the best slow "spotting" speed for safe and accurate final positioning, without compromising the operator's ability to move loads quickly. The CXT1 hoist features a near true vertical lift and is designed for applications that require performance and precision in areas with limited headroom.

The close headroom design of the CXT1 hoist maximizes the use of existing building space and hoist lift. The balanced hoist design provides exceptional stability on small bridge cranes, monorails, or jib crane beams. The CXT1 comes standard with a close headroom motorized two-speed trolley with a disc brake, solo hoisting controls (mainline contactor and control transformer), and a two motion pendant with an emergency stop button. CXT1 hoists are in stock and ready for shipment for most common voltages.
