OUR RANGE OF OVERHEAD CRANES & LIFTING EQUIPMENT

OVERHEAD CRANES

RGM Cranes provides a large variety of overhead crane options for any operational needs. From entry-level jib cranes using chain hoist mechanisms, to electrical chain hoists and wire rope hoists. These can be used in warehouses, factories or larger areas where they can be built as gantry cranes. Overhead cranes can be assembled in single girder or double girder formats and have load capacities ranging from 250kg to 100t

ELECTRIC HOISTS

Electric hoists offer the best safety and even load-distribution qualities over manual hoists. They are simple to operate and can work in tandem, meaning more than one hoist can be employed with little human oversight, increasing your operational efficiency and increasing workflow. 

Most electric hoists have a load range of between 250kg and 100t.

MANUAL LIFTING EQUIPMENT

RGM Cranes provides manual lifting equipment in the form of manual chain blocks and wire rope hoists. These are meant for infrequent use and usually have lower duty cycles as a result. For even load distribution and greater safety, it is advised that you use all manual lifting equipment with chain slings, nylon slings or chain bags.

Load capacity is limited for manual hoists and is usually from 250kg, but always less than 10t.

OUR INDUSTRIAL CRANES AND RANGE OF LIFTING EQUIPMENT HELPS THE AUTOMOTIVE, CONSTRUCTION, MINING AND MANUFACTURING INDUSTRIES IN SOUTHERN AFRICA MEET THEIR DEMANDING PRODUCTION SCHEDULES.

REDUCE WORKSHOP DOWNTIME
