Why APPI:
  Keeping production moving at Autofeeds requires moving 400 lb rolls of polyester film into position on an elevated table.  A small crane equipped with an AC winch was installed to handle this task but after a number of brake failures they initiated a search for a replacement.

After a careful evaluation process, they selected one of our Columbia HD1300 AC electric hoists which is equipped with a spring set, electrically released brake to ensure loads are properly held in place when not lifting or lowering them.  A .5 HP TEFC UL listed motor provides input power and a high efficiency, permanently lubricated planetary gear reduction ensure efficiency and reliability for the gear train.

Since the installation of our hoist on their line there hasn’t been a single down time incident related to it.
