Our Partner Verlinde launched a new range of synthetic rope electric hoists: EUROBLOC VF for loads up to 20 000 kg. Always at the forefront of its hoisting unit designs, Verlinde has introduced numerous innovations protected by 15 patents for this new product. Among these, the use of ultra-resistant synthetic ropes instead of traditional steel ropes as well as the latest management of the rope angle.
Verlinde EUROBLOC VF synthetic rope electric hoists are available in 3 models according to the load supported: They benefit from the travelling speed variation, from 5 to 20m/min. The hoists meet the EN 13001-1 classification.
- VF3 up to 3200 kg
- VF5 up to 6300 kg
- VF10, up to 20000 kg
The ropes are available in diameters of 7 mm (VF3), 8.5 mm (VF5) and 12 mm (VF10) with a 12-strand anti-rotation weave. The structure of the synthetic rope is stable over time and has a longer service life than steel, which reduces production downtime for its replacement.
Synthetic rope is suitable for many configurations without the need for special rope variants unlike steel:rotation resistant use, heavy duty use, left and right hand lay, galvanized and stainless steel, and for different lubrications.
Only one rope model is used per type of hoist, which greatly facilitates storage, reduces costs and eliminates the risk of confusion between different rope models.
Synthetic fibre is not lubricated, so it does not require special maintenance or cleaning.And the fibre does not attract or collect dust. Furthermore, this prevents from steel particles falling under the lifting unit.
This technical innovation is part of Verlinde's approach to bring the latest technology to its customers as well as respecting the environment and allowing its customers to minimize the ecological impact of its products.
Finally, the "Inching Mode" in lifting and "Anti-Sway» functions allow for a more precise movement of the load and increased safety in use.
