Crane Sentry® Hoist Side Pull (low profile version) has recently been specially modified to fit a unique feature of Detroit Low-profile Hoists.
Laser-View Technologies recently provided Side Pull Detection to VM Hoist in Iowa. In this application, we uncovered that an adaptation was needed to a feature on the Detroit Hoist.
The dead-end of one rope wire at the equalizer bar is allowed to rotate. This rotation caused problems keeping our side pull detector square to the bridge and trolley axis.
Working closely with VM Hoist, we came up with an adapter bracket. The bracket clamps around a special sleeve that Detroit Hoist provides. The sleeve remains stationary, while the rope rotates inside of the sleeve. Our modified clamp attaches to the sleeve and alleviates the rotation problem.
