KITO ER2 Electric Chain Hoist With Hook Suspension

Engineered to perform in the industry’s toughest applications and most extreme conditions

KITO’s high performance ER2 Electric Chain Hoist Series are striving for the first place in the industry when it comes to safety, longevity and maintenance. The ER2 is characterized, in particular, by its high product spectrum, offering the customer an array of choices. Load capacities from 125 kg up to 20 t cover a wide range of applications. Its versatility, from the hook version to the plain trolley up to 5 t and the use of a geared or electric trolley up to 20 t, distinguishes this model as a universal hoist. This is further underlined by the special twin hook version and the variant with an extra-short headroom height. Because of its easy handling, the ER2 is used in almost all sectors, including the paper industry, in shipyards, foundries, and on major construction sites.

In its development of the ER2, KITO has focused on functionality. This means that, without any superficial gimmicks, the robust and solidly constructed hoist, with pioneering inverter technology or with 24-V contactor control, is able to perform its tasks with ease. The production depth offers a further advantage to customers as it guarantees them a high degree of security. Well over 70 % of all the parts we use come from our own production. An important component of this production depth is the load chain, which differs appreciably from that of its competitors. KITO is the only manufacturer in the world to nickel-plate its load chain. The advantage of this process is that no hydrogen embrittlement occurs as a result of the permeability of the nickel surface to hydrogen molecules. Because of its special properties, nickel is particularly well suited as a surface coating for many applications. This makes the range of applications for this electric chain hoist unparalleled: its advantages ensure that this hoist is even ideal for operations where aggressive media have to be handled.
