Chain hoists (electric or pneumatically powered) provide lifting and lowering motion for components requiring a change in position or location. Hoists can be attached to jib, bridge or gantry cranes to widen their application. Adding a hoist to a trolley increases the motion direction horizontally, allowing control up, down, forward, and backward to quickly position an item for assembly, inspection, or further processing.
