Electric Hoists & Balancers

Not your grandfather’s hoists — these lifting devices have intelligence all their own

WEPCO offers many types of hoists for vertical translation. Operated manually, electrically or pneumatically, they can be attached to cranes and monorails to lift, lower and position your loads safely and efficiently. Recent developments in technology have increased mechanical reliability and brought incredible improvements in ergonomic handling. In many cases, heavy loads can be positioned with only fingertip pressure.

Balancers allow your operator to guide a “weightless” load, providing for precision positioning.
